Day 13: Inspiration Board

Posted by on Mar 13, 2012 in craft | 0 comments

Today’s challenge is to make an inspiration board. I’ve always had a journal, the writing kind, but a couple years ago, my artist friend Karin showed me hers and I was blown away by the page after page of beautiful art instead of a jumble of pointless words. So I’ve been trying to keep more of a visual journal, which is mostly me amassing torn scraps from magazines and occasionally sitting down and gluing them in. I also practice my calligraphy (still working on that) and keep movie ticket stubs and lists of things I want to do this summer and occasionally even draw (still working on that, too). So these are a couple pages from that.

So we’re not going in order any more, I’m just doing things as I get them done and photographed. Days 6 and 8 are queued up already, 11 and 12 need photos, Day 9 I should have saved that flower for.

Recommendation: Genevieve Motley jewelry

Posted by on Jul 6, 2010 in love, wishlist | 4 comments

South African jewelry designer Genevieve Motley makes the most lovely, unique pieces you can imagine. Very economically priced, too. I won this fantastic necklace and have received many compliments on it over the past few days.

Yellow jumble

I’ve been making these collage-y necklaces trying to use up some of the random bits and bobs I’ve had hanging around. I made a pinky-brown one first, that Jessica claimed. This was the second, which is mine.

Kind of braindead lately [perhaps a bit waterlogged] and still on a post-game high, so I thought I’d share some of my photos of the awesome fashion we saw in New Orleans.
