Hair Cut



I went to Fawn and Fox Salon and Dana cut my hair.  And... I love it!!  It was my first time at that salon and with that hairdresser.  I'm never going anywhere else ever again.  I wish I had taken pictures of the salon itself, it's gorgeous!  And they offer you hot chocolate at the door!

Sneak Peek


Here is a sneak peek on some stuff I have been working on for Clutter.

Saturday, January 28, 2012


Welp... I got my new camera (Olympus EPL1), and I loveeeee it!  It let's me take pictures of all the fluffy things I love.  If my cat's don't hate me yet, they are going to now. How cute are these guys though!

This was most likely pre-attack.

 So regal!

This is the same face I give my mom when she gets her hands on
on a camera at Christmas.

I did something bad...

Peter's birthday is coming up, and I bought myself way too many presents...  It's like these urges come upon me every 6 months or so... and this one came, at a horrible time.  There is honestly nothing that I can do about it... I would literally have to lock myself up in a room with no internet access for like a week to avoid these splurges.  On top of this, I have also made a hair appointment to get highlights and bangs...  I am so compulsive about these things.... when I want something I drive myself mad and cave.  I feel guilty, but I am also soooooo excited for these things to come in the mail!!

For the record, this camera will be a great help to this blog and to my Etsy Shop.  I'm thinking it will pay for itself by taking extra beautiful pictures for my shop (fingers crossed).  And like my last one, I promise not to drop it in the lake....

I also got this great 10" lap loom to make...

...these!! Think guitar and bag straps, belts, woven jewelry ... things of that nature.
(can't remember where I got image, sorry)

All of these pictures made me laugh.   Or at least smile really really big.

Ahh can't wait to see Wes Anderson's new movie Moonrise Kingdom.  It looks so beautiful, and magical.  The colors, and the costumes, and the characters... oh my.

I am having a 10% sale in my Etsy Shop.  Out with the old, in with the new.  Just type in TENPERCENT at checkout.

I have been getting more and more interested and involved in illustration and painting.  I went to MOMA for the first time over Christmas break, and got really inspired (more on that later).  Anywhoo I came across this video, and I love Maira's drawings, and she's so funny! "Cheezle, reminds me of weasel, it's like weasel cheese... or something like that" ... genius.

I love peach and black together.

 I've been thinking a lot about new spaces, and redecorating.

I am going to be working on intricate knit necklaces and I found some beautiful clay beads for decoration, and weight.  These bracelets remind me of them, beautiful.

I'm Baaaaack

New Years Resolutions:

I know I'm not perfect, not yet anyways... In fact, making resolutions this year wasn't hard for me.  Like ideas for projects, I can think of about a million things I want to work on.  However, I am going to limit myself to six.

1.  Spend at least 15 hours a week in the studio working on Louder Space. 

2.  Hit the gym at least twice a week (may not sound like a lot, but it will be increasing my exercise by, oh about, 100%)

3. Increase Louder Space sales by 50%

4.  Drink more water!

5. Learn how to knit a sweater and socks.

6.  Buy a nice digital camera, learn how to use it, and make blog more personal.  Show more projects and processes, tell more stories.  Upload less photos from other people, and more of my own.
