Back In The Studio Again…

I am so pleased to be getting back into the rhythm (never looks right this word) of things. School started today for my son, Ellis and my twin 8th graders, Lucy and Willa start on Thursday. I love summer, but it is time for us all to go forth and do our respective things.

I did a lot of clean up in my studio last spring and it was instantly motivating to know that soon I get to spend hours and hours there again. I did have to cut some grapevine to be able to enter the space which felt uniquely a little sacred and hidden. A creative oasis of my own.

We are working on the fashion show and I am playing with this bag shape from an old leather coat (with oddly short sleeves) that someone dropped off at my door last spring. I am going to decide on the shape and take it to one of the leather shops to get professionally stitched…a red tulle handle perhaps for the fashion show on September 7th. Hope you have a creative day!
