Stitching Together Thoughts

I've been spending quality time in my upstairs hideout, where I have the juiciest space to do whatever creative thing I dream of. I'm stoked to announce: I have a new craft! I'd show you pictures of my new creations, but unfortunately, Zieg is traveling right now with the camera. So stay tuned for the return of the camera. I guarantee that next week's photos will be exciting to "unfold." In the meantime, rest assured that I am full of inspiration and jolly jubilee for life. I am definitely not bored!

Needletune needs new pictures. Since I have to hold off on showing off what I made, here's a pair of random musings about photos I found in the computer.

Here is a my silly friend Kari from college, who I recently bonded with while she was living in Astoria, Oregon (where "The Goonies" was filmed). Her house was on a hill overlooking the ocean. It had what appeared to be the Golden Gate Bridge out the front door. Breathtaking! But in return for the beauty, she had the shortest shower in the world. An elf shower. This is what she had to do if she didn't feel like going to the gym to take a shower.

Isn't this pretty? It was taken by our little camera just a few weeks ago. I bet you have no idea what it is. I'm not telling. heh. Any ideas? Leave me a comment and tell me what you think it is. If you're right, you'll be my new best friend! If you are wrong, Needletune points for you for effort.

It's late, I'm all crafted out. Good night.

List of Lists

Right now in my life, I am doing a lot of little things to keep busy and stay afloat. A little of this, a little of that... all meeting together from different directions to make for what I think is a pretty interesting life. (Thankfully, it is all stuff that involves some creativity or I think I would go crazy.) Well, all of these things add up to what feels like a very big thing, a mass of thoughts in my head. So today, I did something that made me feel more organized and also made me laugh-- I sat down to make a list of the lists I need to make. Seriously. I'm not sure what that says about my life! Next, I think I might try drawing out a tree with branches to get my lists organized.

Ooh, Let's Join

Here are the 3 poster designs that I just finished for Girls Inc. I ended up being asked to do separate designs for elementary, middle school, and high school. Since the posters are laminated, it works well to write on them with a dry erase marker, so the white boxes are for meeting times, etc. The posters will be displayed at schools all over the Portland area. Enjoy!
