i've been missing this space lately. every time we go into nature and i have my camera in hand, i think about sharing it here. but life has been so full lately. and my computer problems haven't gone away like i had hoped. i'm slowly and steadily working away at getting my computer back in shape, trying to convince myself that i can get a few more years out of this already going on 9 year old machine (what is that in technology years, like 100 years old, ha!).
there has been so much crafting this holiday season, so many beautiful outings. i'm hoping to share when i have the time and patience, so please excuse christmas gift postings in say february :) i also have some new tricks up my sleeve- a new avenue for creativity. something that i feel i can manage with two littles running about, unlike my last sewing business.
those are a sampling of some of the vintage inspired prints i've been working on for a new shop in the making. for several years i've been hoarding away vintage illustrations (hmmm this could contribute to the slowness of my computer!). from the first day of stumbling upon them, i knew i needed to do something with these beautiful images. it took close to 7 years to figure it out. i've been taking bits and pieces of vintage illustrations and digitally altering and then combining the components into new art pieces. i love it. i'm excited about it. i can do it with two littles running about. while they ride their bikes up and down the driveway, i sit out there with my borrowed work laptop and work away. or when they go to sleep at night, i work a bit more- something i found too tiresome to do when it came to sewing for my old business.
anyways, thank you to those of you who have checked in during this quiet time. i still check in on my favorite reads now and again when i have a few minutes to spare at the office. while i haven't been commenting, i have been enjoying. i hope the new year brings lots of love and laughter, and may your dreams come one step closer to reality :)
