Photos from this week

I’m on day 135 of wearing the same dress every day. Using Eucerin’s Redness Relief line for my rosacea which has helped a lot. I just finished the first tube and I see a big difference in my complexion. The winter weather seems to be throwing me for a little bit of a loop again though.

Took some practice photos for a big upcoming project with Sarah

Dave and I went on a date and he got me a new lipstick. So much better than flowers or jewelry and such a nice surprise. I picked a good guy!

I found this box on our counter and asked Alice what it said. She said “It’s my name! A-L-I-C-E!” I can sort of make it out there. She’s doin’ good!

And this little face makes me smile every day. The hat helps, too.

I hope you had a lovely weekend and that you’re capturing all the moments as annoyingly as you wanna.

    Same dress every day? I think I missed this project…did you buy a bunch in different colors?

    I LOVE that lipstick idea. I love practical gifts too – I’d be way more flattered to receive a lipstick than flowers!

      Nevermind! Went through the archives and refreshed my memory. Love it!

      yes! I bought two of them in September and now, thanks to watching eBay, I have about 11. I’m writing something more substantive about it this week.

A Pretty Bridal Bouquet Inspired by “Dusty Jewel Tones”

About a month ago I was contacted by a bride to create a bouquet inspired by a muted, pretty palette of rich colors. I loved the combination and was excited to take on another bridal client, which led me to finish the bouquet (plus a few bonus boutonnieres) within a few weeks. It was nice to be working on flowers again, and I followed my whim and inspiration to do things a little bit differently this time. Each flower and leaf is much more highly embellished than work I have done in the past, and I created more types of flowers (many of them found in my book, Fabric Blooms) to arrange into the bouquet.

Embroidered Things for Rebecca

Lately I've been embroidering really small things--portraits, simple objects, flowers, but much more detailed things, and all at about three inches square. I made these three pictures and framed them for my friend Rebecca Forsyth on her birthday today.

Awful things

Awful things
> When people throw cigarette butts on the ground
> When all your underwear is in the wash
> When you have to get up to get your charging cable
> Shower curtains that stick to you
> People who leave their carts in the middle of the aisle while they browse

Bye old friend: Quitting Diet Coke.

It's now been one month since I quiet Diet Coke cold turkey. I had been drinking 6-8 cans per day, from when I woke up to when I went to sleep. That's a lot, but I'd been drinking more or less that for about 10 years. I don't like coffee or tea, so soda was my only source of caffeine, which I thought I needed to exist.

Letter to Alice no. 32

As I look back over the letters I’ve written you in the past, I feel like there’s a theme of reassurance, joy, and calm in the gifts you give me as your mother. You seem to always make my life easier exactly when I need it most. My heart is always yours, and it will always be yours, in every world, in every life, in every drawing you make, in every dream you have.
