The above photo was for The Photo Trade, April. The theme was Fairy Tales.
What I like: Love these "Creatures of the Deep" by Matt Cipov at Three Potato Four.
It's Polaroid Week on Flickr! I'm really enjoying some of sparke's polaroids this week. Especially black/green and shadow.
What I've been doing: I measure my days right by how far down I got on my list of things to do. The good news is that I'm almost caught up! I think this weekend there might be a ski day at Mt Hood to celebrate.
Where I've been: I've been antiquing lately. I have a new project up my sleeve as well as expanding on an existing one and have been collecting the items that I need....so secretive. I'm scared to say more before I have anything to show.
Also went to Bolt on Tuesday for a skirt pattern making class. I need to do some reading, because my zipper sewing techniques lack any real skill that most other people use. But once I'm all read up, I hope to have a few patterns to sew for the summer. I think I might also have to check out Purl for some fun skirt fabric.
What I've been thinking: Part of my antiquing is looking at and for handmade objects that were made for a purpose beyond the decorative. I've been thinking a lot about the whole handmade item/handmade process/ingenuity of it all.
I am searching for some books that address these topics. Any ideas?
