What a first week back! It was crazy as always, but hopefully now that I'm back to a more regular schedule, I'll also be back to blogging more regularly.

Catching up, this semester started with my work on display alongside metals titan, Bob Ebendorf. Bob teaches a wonderful class on mixed materials here at ECU. He put together these displays, and invited me to put my work up in a case. I was a little nervous and didn't really go in with a set plan, but all in all I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.

I also moved my space a few weeks before school started. Hopefully I'll be able to channel a little of Dan Dicaprio's awesome mojo.

Stay tuned for:
Process Shots!
Adventures in Teaching!
Assisting the Metals Survey Class!
Mailing Work to Shows!
Random Quotes that Don't Pertain to Anything!
The Lava Dress!
and most importantly, will I or will I not go back for the cute shoes?

For People Who Sew

If you're into sewing, I highly recommend checking out BurdaStyle. They've got tons of cool projects and patterns, most of which are either cheap or free! I'm totally going to make this bolero top. It's super easy and made from a T shirt!

Ready for Fall

After several weeks of crazy hot and humid weather I'm ready for it to be fall. I'm ready for cooler temps, long sleeves, less air conditioning and a drop in the bug population. Here's a few new additions for the new season, available in my shop.
