the moSCoWRade

The little community of Moscow, Idaho puts together a wearable art show every Fall called the Moscowrade. A majority of the design entries are either Clothing, Textile, & Design students from the University of Idaho or just talented, crafty souls from the surrounding community. This would be my second year participating, last year a student, and this year as Clothing, Textile, & Design graduate (woot woot). No big cash prizes or awards for me this year, but truly some innovative, remarkable silhouettes, textures, and themes this year.

that time of year again

Wow Christmas is so close I can smell it. Time to start making lists for those whom you want to buy for and the most exciting of all....making your wish list. As a recent college grad without that big girl job, I acknowledge that I will not be getting the contents of my Christmas list. But hey....a girl can wish, and I'm the type of person that if I want something I will just go and get it for myself.
My inner teenager has crept out lately and I've been collaging some of my wishes for the holiday season.

channelling all of the inner banter i have with myself. exploiting the million and one day dreams, distractions, and urges i have on a daily basis. chic new vice for  maintaining a balance.
