Nearly everyone has a camera in their pockets nowadays. So while the mystique of film photography and waiting to see what developed no longer exists, it takes someone exceptional to shine amid the constant bombardment of visual stimuli we face every day. On a monsoon Saturday in July, with the water sheeting it down, raining […]
I’d like to believe I’m not as fickle as it might seem, not a total butterfly, but perhaps my boredom/discouragement threshold is low. So currently, I’m enthused by dyeing silk Shibori style.

I was playing around with a scheduling app a few days ago, inspired by a weeklong spring clean by Makelight. I’m sorry to report I didn’t finish following up on that but maybe at some point I will. Those of you who read my blog by visiting it might notice a strangeness. I tried to […]
Well not really, because my hands are on my phone. But yes. I don’t have my loom with me while waiting at a class. So I thought I’d blog instead. What, another stall setup? You’ll ask. Not exactly. It was an audition for an upcoming event. This would be the biggest bestest event ever if […]
