Happy Halloween!!!

I'm an owl and Ted is a bird watcher!  


Close Up!

I found a kids version of this online so I decided to make the "t" version. I started with a cotton dress and cut the feathers out of old fabric swatches. This dress was so fun to wear!

Paper Show

Last night was the 22nd annual Unisource Paper Show in Chicago. It was fabulous. I got free stuff... 

Don't judge me. Just look at all of this inspiration! Some of the highlights? Well French Paper, of course. They were giving out a beautiful dye cut piece with stationery from their collection. Also, Neenah Paper's wonderful look books and business cards made of 10 pieces of recycled paper... Impressed? I certainly was. I also attended the lecture by Trish Wiktowski of and was super excited by her tips and tricks - I can't wait to implement them into my designs!

I feel super nerdy being so excited about paper samples, but this is the story of my life. Dear web, stop being so efficient, I want paper to stay in design forever!
