i’ve been spending some time in the forest & on my friend’s farm this last month, it’s really helped my spirit.
being in the trees always feels healing. they seem to dissolve much of the clamor picked up in the city.

time has been flying by. i’ve been immersed in the project of overhauling my home & studio (again)..
sorting what to keep, what to let go of, and laying a foundation for the future. haven’t had much time to post here,
so this is just a bit of a random catch-up :)

one of my bridal clients sent this picture awhile back, it seems her kitty has claimed the wedding dress!
starting to suspect that my cats are sending secret messages in the clothes, around the world to their comrades.
such clever, mysterious creatures these felines are.

i won’t be taking on any custom orders (besides those already scheduled) til the fall/winter..
going to devote more time to the ideas jumping around in my head & prepare for a stint at
my friend Trinity’s beautiful store Field Day.
i’ll be making a little army of beautiful simple dresses & other garments/adornments & they will be
available there during the month of September. i’ll have more details soon..
