Paper weavings

{all paper weavings via}
I'm on a weaving kick apparently. This time- paper! I found this interesting piece of work on Patternbank's blog, and had to go see more. 

We Salute The Sketch is a piece of work from Danish textile designer's Helle Gråbæk and Maria Kirk Mikkelsen. They wove together paper into an unfinished "sketch" of paper in pattern, color and form. Drawing inspiration from Anni Albers and Gunta Stolzl (I had never heard of her before, but wow. I have a lot of reading and looking to do). 

I am also reminded of lanyards that I used to make at summer camp. Either way, I love their explorative project.

Some things

{New work by me!}
It's Friday again peeps. I hope this week has been good to you! It's that time again for a round up of interesting things (do you enjoy round up lists as much as I do?).

This article had the Art History nerd in me very excited. I'm ready to go back to school just to research and write a long paper on this topic.

Photography goodness and super interesting photographer from the BBC.

Did you read this article about a family of 4 in a 650 sq. ft apartment? We live in maybe the same square footage (or less? Not sure) as a family of 3. So, this article really resonated with me. And the comments. Ha!

Need some new wallpaper? I think I have a few designs that need to be in their company. :)

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! xo

Instagram is the best - teresa freitas

I love Instagram. I'm not alone- more than 300million people visit the app each month. Woah. There are so many inspiring artists, designers, travelers, photographers and people out there that it seems like I am always finding someone new. I know I just shared Abby Eillerman, but today I saw photographer Teresa Freitas' Instagram and was so delighted and inspired. 

This is a short interview with her from Another Mag.

Pondicherry, India. Oh, how I want to go!

All photos from Teresa's Instagram.

I have written about my love of weaving in the past. I really think I need a weaving in my life.  I need to learn to weave. Someday when I have the time, I want to take a class with this lady. I was really happy to see this woven clothing collection on Instagram this morning. Abby Eillerman, a senior at Savannah College of Art and Design.

This is such a fun collection. 

This coat is my favorite. How awesome would it look with just a t-shirt and jeans? Talk about elevating my mom-look.

I'm inspired to do a crazy, colorful, weaving inspired collection. Soon. Thanks for the inspiration Abby!

Native American Textiles

A few months ago I went and saw the Native American Textile exhibit at the De Young. It was gorgeous and has been rolling around in my head ever since. I'm finally going back and looking at some photos I took for reference and am re-inspired all over again.

The geometrics were so good.

Can I take this one home with me, please?

Can't wait to see this upcoming exhibition

some things

{work in progress}

Well, another week has gone by and its July. How does that happen!? I have been busily working on a very exciting project that I can't quite say yet (I know, how annoying to even say anything!), but will let you know as soon as I can. It's big!

So, in the meantime, here are some things for your fourth of July weekend. In case you get sick of saluting the flag and eating hot dogs.

We are going to the beach for a morning picnic with friends and I'm going to make these strawberry-buttermilk scones from Tartine. With blueberries. Red, white and blue!

I read this article by a very stylish mom, and I am so inspired. This will be us someday!!! Maybe with slightly less children and not quite so stylish. But traveling the world as a family?! Yes.

Since I was an Art History major, this gave me a good laugh.

Do you need to be inspired to craft this weekend? Or just be overwhelmed by all the pretty and then watch Netflix instead? Either way, this will do it for you.

Lastly, have you signed up for my newsletter yet? I am getting ready to send out my inaugural issue, and would love to have you receive it. Thanks for all the support and have a great Independence Day weekend!

Friday Things!

Still working on products! Image from my new Instagram account.
Some things for your Friday is back. And so am I with some news to share with you!

 I am now a featured designer over on Print & Pattern's designer's for hire website. Yay!

Here is a link to an interview with me on the Australian Design website, Tractor Girl (thanks Julie!)

I enjoyed this post on simplifying your life. The article is a bit long (ironic, as one commenter noted!), but I still liked it.

Did you know the 2016 Resort collections are on right now? Stop what you're doing and go look at the Valentino show. I loooove what they're doing over there. Oh, those Italians.

All of these short videos make me want to move to Australia immediately.

Lastly, I'm going to be sending out a newsletter periodically with news and updates about my design work, so if you would like to keep in touch that way, please sign up here!

Ok, I'm off to enjoy my weekend. Hope you do the same! xo
