I am very excited to show you the cover I did for the latest Mixtape Zine. This issue is available right here and it has 2 covers—the other is on the reverse side by the incredibly talented Christina Gordon. So cool. This is a great issue and is possibly the last printed one. It looks like it might be PDF only in the future (this seems to be still up in the air, you can send Justine your thoughts) so get a printed one while you can. I love looking though the stacks of mine over the years. Thanks so much, Justine.
some links and random items:
- The newest issue of the online magazine, Covet Gardens, is out and so lovely. It has me thinking about houseplants in a big way. That cover is outstanding!
- I was flattered to be interviewed over at ohdeedoh for the Big Blog Family feature. Her questions got my mind percolating about blogging and how much has changed and what it was like when I started. It's all good. Thanks, Katie!
- The Tie One On aprons (the theme is Apple Cider) are due at the end of this month. I will post the book giveaway next week chosen for a lucky apron maker who enters this challenge. It's a super good one!
- I am sort of devastated and in denial at what both my naturopath and acupuncturist are telling me about my feet and swayed back. It relates to my heel wearing habits and the super cute bad-for-me shoes I have worn all my life. A yoga-related calf injury a few months ago was a real wake-up call as to how my feet are changing. So, my shoe fetish has pretty much closed down until I can find shoes I actually want to wear that aren't 110% hobbit. Not that I can't hang with the hobbit look, I can, but I only feel partially hobbity about 2 days out of 7. Still, these boots, made by Keen, are making me happy and totally approved by my lovely practitioners who are also making me wear these Correct Toes as much as I can stand it. How I will match shoes with my vintage outfits is eluding me, so I'm trying not to think about it. I can't stop wearing heels altogether, but I need to wear them less, obviously.
