books books books

I put some of my handmade books in my Etsy Shop, and I really just wanna keep filling and filling it up! I remembered that my dad had this little mini tripod, and that my mom has an excellent cannon digital camera. So I took those two things, set up a little makeshift photo studio with the sun pouring through my window and took some yummy pictures. Heres how some of them came out :

YAY ETSY

My new Etsy shop, Handmade Yummies, is up and running. There is a limited amount of stuff in my shop at the moment, but that will change in the coming days. I am really excited about this little online venture, and I hope you will check it out! I will have everything from weavings and yarn to prints and handmade books going in there. BUY MY SHIT. thanks.

The Actual Plan

So I am going back home tomorrow for realzzz. I’m excited to get back to my little bedroom studio and get some work done! But it’s always sad to leave Savannah. I’ll have a lot more to write about when i get home and start getting my hands on things! So I’ll be on the 8:20 am train back to Penn Station!

Alyssa Nassner = delicious

stumbled upon the website of Alyssa Nassner and fell in love. She is a super talented illustrator and pattern designer, and I found myself getting lost in her body of work. Its cute and clean lined, and pleasing on the eyeballs. I loved these craft inspired illustrations..

As I said earlier, she is also an extremely talented pattern designer, and there are a lot of great images on her site, but i fell in love with these stationary/paper good designs. The row of houses reminds me of Brooklyn, and the colors she uses in general are pure eye candy.

I Walked

As a born and raised New Yorker, walking (fast preferably) has always been something I am used to. And before moving down south for college, I hadn’t even really thought of any other way to get around, not even by bicycle. As soon as I got to Savannah bicycle is what I did, that is, until I got in a series of debilitating bicycle accidents that have probably scared me away from the two wheeled machines forever. That began my serious walking, which luckily was easy in a city as small as Savannah, and I could always get anywhere in the city within 45 minutes on my feet. After moving back to New York, I realized how much the subway actually takes away from the walking exercise I felt like I was getting down in the dirty dirty.

SO. Now, on my little visit down here I find myself walking again, especially when Herbie is away at work, and I am too scared to get on his fancy hipster fixed gear. My walk today took me from Ardsley Park to The Sentient Bean, about 30 minutes, and heres some snappies I took along the way.
