Florals: Lovely Tuesdays

So today, in my Surface Design class, we started floral patterns. We have done stripes and square repeats so far. (I promise, these will be coming soon. I just forget because my life is so crazy.) 

Anyway, because we looked at a bunch of patterns, I though to myself: Self, you should start an iPhoto archive of patterns. And then I thought: Self, you are so smart. 

Ok maybe I didn't really think the second part, but I thought it was a good idea. I already have an inspiration folder (so important). So now that I'm in textiles, doesn't it just seem right to have a textile/pattern folder? I think so. 

So, I bring to you some florals to enjoy on your Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. And then, after I'm done with this project, I'll show you what I came up with. :) 

I have more, as they are never ending, but I am falling asleep at my computer! So good night everyone!

Research for projects leads to beautiful finds...

I'm doing some color research for my new spinning assignment {which will be shown sometime soon} and I found some pretty things along the way. 

Whimsicalities is just fantastic for beautiful images as well as beautiful quotes. So inspiring.

Don't forget to check back this weekend for my "What I've been working on" post :)

Hi all!!

It's a late night for me tonight, but I wanted to stop and say hi before heading off to do some more work! (Ahhhh!) 

I have been a busy bee lately and have not had time to think about anything having to do with my blog... *tear* But good news!! Remember those pillows I slaved over this past summer? (If you don't/weren't around, just draw your attention to my title bar and you will see them!) 

Welllll, I participated in the RISD Student Sale this year for the very first time with my good friend Sunny and we both had a great outcome! I was soooo excited that my pillows sold well! And I have lots of new ideas for expanding my pillow collection and improving! Exciting! 

Hopefully these changes and new pillows and *possibly* an Etsy store (?) will happen during my Wintersession which gives me A LOT more time. (Which I noticeably haven't had... sorry!) If anyone has advice for set-up, managing or how much time weekly you put in, comments would be extremely appreciated!

I will definitely be posting this weekend and give you all a sneak of what I have been spending all my time doing. I have been having SOOOOO much fun in Textiles! It was a great choice for me. I'm so happy. :) 

I hope you all find love in these illustrations I found on Etsy. (up top) They are my new favorites. I really want this one for Christmas!! (hint hint... hehe)

Thank you so much for your patience in my absence!

September 1st was my last post?

Oh my... so sorry. 
Obviously, things have been super busy for me lately, as I haven't posted in over a month. But the RISD Art Sale yesterday reminded me that I *have* to post something on here, and get back into blogging regularly. 

School has been really hectic. Especially as I have changed my major and like any other day, today is another full day of work. Meaning, it's hard for me to take the time to post right now. 

Therefore, I will be posting more later. (Lots of fun stuff happening lately) But until then, go check out the new RVA shop! It looks sooo super cute and I can't wait to visit one day!

Elsie's shop makes me dream of one day having my own... *sigh*

Lots of painting today! Wish me luck!
