imagine

the first computer i ever touched was a mac. the first time i ever went on the internet was at the computer lab at antioch college - which was filled with apple computers. i first saw the news that he passed on twitter, on my iphone. he brought us the future and it, and he, were inspiring.

the blog...

is growing moss its so neglected. i've been busy. there've been shows, lunches and birthdays with friends, lots of bike rides and cooking, and the neverending work to do list. it true. but its also true there have been times i could've blogged and i didn't. every moment i've spent NOT doing something, i've wanted to be MAKING SOMETHING. i don't know if its october and the colors or that i have more to time to sew at night, which is my favorite time to sew, because of the longer nights, but the ideas just keep coming. i've used pieces of broken vintage jewelry that have sat in my stash for years because i finally had the perfect idea for them. i've made things in color combos that feel very new to me. and that's just it - everything seems new. i'm seeing possibility everywhere and right now, i just want to enjoy it without giving it more thought than i have here, right now.

so, this week i'll probably post for autumn colour week because well, duh. next week, we'll just have to see what happens.
