new delights for your loveliness

I've spent the evening adding more sew on buttons and necklaces to my etsy shop.
And eating pina colada flavored licorice.

I have closets full of zines, big rubbermaid containers full, in various rooms where they're not doing anyone any good. It's time to spread them around! I'm sending them all in flat rate envelopes for just the cost of shipping. I'm trying to keep them thematically unified but some are more of a variety. This is jus the first round! I hope to post more this week.

report from Acknowledge Me : 2008

On December 6, 2008, a bunch of artists, crafters, DIYers, musicians, activists, ... etc. gathered on a very cold night at the Mohawk.

Thank you Michelle and Johanna who helped me set up and take down, table, kept me company and entertained in the cold !

this guy bought some of my tiny art zines

this nice girl Lani (sp?) traded a wonderful bird screenprinted shirt for a little embroidered hedgehog of mine along with a little polka-dotted tooth plushy. Later, I ran into her at my favorite paper store in Austin, the Paper Place, where she works!

Laura picked out a house collage to take home

stockings for the pups!

I made stockings for 3 of my favorite pups this Christmas.

Michelle with Nola

me and Brutus

me and Tucker

I sewed the little stockings first, with trim and a loop to hang it, then sewed on the piece of fabric with their name in iron-ons.
