Studio/Craft Room

I've been slowly working on my studio/craft room. So far I've painted the walls pure white and replaced all the light bulbs with day light bulb. It's amazing what little things like that can help with designing the colors of your projects and the photos of the projects. It's much easier to get the colors of the photo to actually match the actual colors of the project.

I've been seriously considering adding one of the Ott-Lite to the room. The cost is the biggest problem I have right now. But, I might just have to bite the bullet and get one.

I've also half organized my yarn stash. I did really good when I first started out. So, I now have half (or more) or my stash in bags all over the room (and my bedroom) and the other half neatly organized in the closet. I'm waiting for the yarn fairies to finished yarn organization and that has not happened yet. I might actually have to do it myself.

Old friends found online

I stumbled upon my old letterhead on the Letterhead + Logo Design 5" By Rockport Editors, Rockport Publishing, 2002.

And from there I found another piece in The Best of the Best of Business Card Design By Tabula Rasa, Rockport Publishers , 2003.

This is my friend Steve Mims' letterhead for this Austin Film Work business.

It was pretty cool surprise. I have not thought of them in a long time.

I'm back!

Hopefully this time I'll be better about posting. I'll try anyway.

I've been busy crocheting new things and learning new stitches all the time. I've listed many new items on my etsy shop. I need to start writing down the patterns so that I'll be able to make them again in the future or at least have the record of how I made them. That's just not the fun part.
