July art & a poem!

I've been crocheting a lot, but haven't really been making as much art as I'd like. Here are some pictures of the mail art I have made. Also, I'm including a picture of my mom holding my first-ever blanket! It's a yellow baby blanket made with a simple V-stitch. Also, here's a poem a wrote at the beginning of July:


Stumble

Laying in the grass,
my head on your belly,
I gaze at the sky.

We talk about what
it means to be
fully alive.

I don't want to merely glide
through conventional motions,
I say as I watch a heart-shaped
cloud pass by.

I want to stumble on a
path that is my own,
then rise, slightly bruised,

but better.

Summer 2014 Update

Hi all! I haven't been making all that much art lately. I've been crocheting up a storm, though! I'll include some picture of my art, as well as some of my crochet (can you tell I love to make hair bows?!). Enjoy!

End of Winter Update

I've been going through a bit of a dry spell lately. I've been crocheting, pen paling, and reading a lot, but I've not been doing much mail art. I did, however, make 8 postcards these past two months or so. That's better than nothing!

Night of the Book! AND MORE!

Tonight, during a spell of insomnia, I made this little booklet. It's my first attempt at combining mail art and art journaling. It contains six pages of artsy goodness! I'll mail this to a special somebody today.








Also, here are some pictures of some of the mail art I've made recently!

July 29, 2013 update

I had an awesome art-making session last night! It lasted ~2 hours and produced 4 completed postcards and the start of some others, plus the start of an art journal page. Here's the goods:





Also, I've crocheted 6 beanies in the past 2 weeks. If you're interested in buying one, please head to Green Owl Crochet (my Etsy shop).

February Update

I've been making quite a bit of art lately! I've mostly been making mail art, but I've done some art journaling, too. The top postcard was made for Jane Davies's campaign to save her local post office. Please check out the project in her blog post, here, and sent her a handmade postcard!
