Oh boy is it ever raining! It is relentless, and there's no end in sight. It's warm out, though, and so the plants are vigorous with growth. It feels a little tropical here, actually.
You can find them in both my Etsy and Artfire shops.

In keeping with the theme of taking time for myself, I decided that I really needed to boost my exercise routine. I love to exercise, and running is my work-out of choice (because it serves a dual purpose of physical and mental exercise). But a knee injury had left me feeling despondent and resolved to being in my 40s. Luckily for me, my neighbor and friend is a personal trainer and agreed to take me on in exchange for some messenger bags! Win-Win! Here is the first bag that I made for her. I love it's sunny brightness combined with the art nouveau design. Of course, the print is designed by Anna Maria Horner, one of my favorites! And since I've been working out with my neighbor, I'm feeling much stronger and was even able to run a little bit last weekend without knee pain. HOORAY!

I just recently purchased and received two of the coolest fabrics I've ever found! I found them overseas from a shop in South Korea called Ness Home. The fabric is a linen/cotton blend and is wonderful to work with. My mind is racing with all of the awesome things I want to make with it! First up: Market totes. I made two sizes: one is wide and short, the other is tall. I thought I'd try them out and then see which of the two I liked the best.
