A new look

In the midst of everything happening this week I was able to finish my new branding. I am super excited about the change of pace. It is a little out there and different, but I felt like it was needed :) 

I will be getting fabric tags as well to attach to all of my pieces moving forward. I cannot wait to order them! 

Now it is back to work on my project that has been neglected the last week.  

Made my first attempt of rapid stitching at the park today. I would do a few things a little differently next time, but I’m in love! I love just diving in and stitching free form on little to no sketch or plan. Next stop the museum! (Hint @alexlyon_design 😉) #embroidery #fiberart #fiber #sketching  (at Central Park North Meadow Baseball Fields)

You must make, always. You must act, if you believe something. Talking about acting is like boasting about pictures you’re going to paint. The most terrible bad form.

One of my favorite authors. This is a great quote.

Well that little sketch the other night did turn in to a project after all! 

               “Rental Sweet Rental” 

After working on the type and layout for a chunk of today, I was able to transfer everything on to a naturally dyed canvas. This has been designed to be framed in a 16x20 frame. 

Adding a little personal touch, I will be adding the apartment numbers that my husband and I have lived in while we have been together within the filigree detailing.  

Excited to jump in!

I am in love with Meghan Trainor and the message of her song “All About The Bass”.

It is cute and uplifting. 

Because you know
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass

Yeah, it’s pretty clear, I ain’t no size two
But I can shake it, shake it
Like I’m supposed to do
Cause I got that boom boom that all the boys chase
And all the right junk in all the right places

I see the magazines workin’ that Photoshop
We know that shit ain’t real
C’mon now, make it stop
If you got beauty beauty, just raise ‘em up
Cause every inch of you is perfect
From the bottom to the top

Yeah, my mama she told me don’t worry about your size
She says boys like a little more booty to hold at night
You know I won’t be no stick figure silicone Barbie doll
So if that’s what you’re into then go ahead and move along

Because you know I’m
All about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass
Hey!

I’m bringing booty back
Go ahead and tell them skinny bitches that
No I’m just playing I know you think you’re fat
But I’m here to tell ya
Every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top

Yeah my mama she told me don’t worry about your size
She said boys like a little more booty to hold at night
You know I won’t be no stick figure silicone Barbie doll
So if that’s what you’re into then go ahead and move along

Because you know I’m
All about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass

FINALLY feeling up to getting back into things. It has been a tough few weeks with my personal and work life. I am looking forward to really getting lost in a piece again. 

I have so many ideas floating in my head and sketch book, I couldn’t pick just one to play around with. Why not all of them!

fuck-yeah-feminist:

Ladies:

If you feel the need to qualify why you are a feminist with things like,

"…but I love men!"
"…but I love dresses!"
"…but I shave!"
"…but I ____________"

STOP. Don’t justify your belief in gender equality. By saying these things, you’re claiming that women who don’t do them are lesser. That’s pretty damn counterproductive.

Yes!!!
