Travel on my mind…

sj_traveljournal

I would really love this travel journal with illustrations by Lena Corwin I would really love to take a vacation this year and I am thinking of going to Prague. One of my close friends is performing at theater festival there at the end of May and I have been checking the prices of tickets daily. Has anyone been to Prague?

Design Glut

Congrats Liz and Kegan for making Page Six! I love seeing people I went to school with carving their own niche in the design world.

Busy Day tomorrow! Besides the talk that I blogged about yesterday I am hopefully going to make it over to PrintSource and Direction by Indigo for work.I have never been to a textile/surface design trade show besides Surtex, which seemed to me to be lacking the kind of design that I prefer, not as modern and leaning more on the commercial side, so I am quite excited. Hopefully we will come back with some prints and some inspiration to get me started on my own work. Speaking of which, yesterday I finally put all of the magazine clippings/computer printouts that I have been saving up next to my computer desk in hopes to get myself inspired to break out my sketchbook and so far it looks like it is working.

Thrifted Dress from NH

Forgot to share my one thrifted purchase while in NH! I saw the pattern on this dress from across the room and knew that I had to have it. This dress is sitting next to my sewing machine (along with many other dresses) waiting to get hemmed since it is currently floor length. Perhaps this could be a new years resolution of sorts. Best of all I ended up only paying a $1 for it since the linen lining looks like it has some water stains on the bottom.
