Look closely at these words you see. If you can believe it they are crocheted out of cassette tape ribbons....amazing. I first experienced Nicola Vruwink's work back in 2007 when she did an exhibition at the university here. I happened to stumble upon her art again and had to share, it's even more astounding in person.
A successful event dedicated to Bradin and Laura. Everything turned out beautiful, the venue, food, family, friends, and of course the actual reading from Bradin and Laura.
We thought we were going to have too much food (three tables full), but there was such a good turn out we ran out of everything. Great job Bradin, you did so well reading your story. We are all so proud of you.
Laura reading her poetry (also very nicely done).
A surprise visit from my aunt in Colorado(right). And cheers to good friends.
Thank you so much for everyone's help, it meant the world to us the support and love we got from everyone. It all turned out wonderfully and we had such a good time with you all.
It is going to be a very eventful weekend. My husband's thesis reading is on Saturday(yay!) and we are about to have a lot of company. I (not really knowing what I was getting into) volunteered to cook for this marvelous event. I have never cooked for this many people and am a little nervous it will go smoothly, but luckily I will have many family members near for aid in my little venture.
I am so grateful that some of our family can make it to this very important milestone in Bradin's life. I can't believe it's almost been three years since we moved to Missoula, even though the transition has not been easy, I am (finally) coming around and enjoying our remaining months here. So not only is this a Mother's Day post, but also a turning of a new leaf, Bradin's leaf...our leaf. Congratulations Bradin one hoop down only a few more to go.
Happy pre-Mother's Day Mom and Cindi! We are so glad you could come.
my inspiration for these found object trees....spotted right over here. just a little sad they are going.
Early this week I had the pleasure of interviewing with Becky. Feeling pretty flattered by her request. I had no idea starting my etsy business would lead me this way and I hope that my business can continue to grow. Thank you Becky for this opportunity!
I can't believe this Japanese artist, Nendo. His 09 exhibition revealed the possibilities of synthetic fibre technology. The end results, chochin lanterns out of the blow-fabric, even better than glassblowing. The technique is marvelous.
I start out with the beans so they can slow cook. Once they are finished I spread them on the toasted tortillas.
Then I cook salsa and eggs together, it makes the eggs delicious. I like my eggs over-easy but they can be cooked any way. I think the yolk makes the dish taste a little better. But hey, I understand if you don't like that yolk.
Once those eggs are finished to your liking, add them to the tortilla and beans.
I eat mine open-faced with a dollop of sour cream.
This one is my favorite thus far. I love it because of the color combo, and the vintage fabric it is lined with is another fave of mine.
I embroidered around all of the feathers to add some visual texture. Take a look here to see the latest.
