In order to have a useful project page, I’ve created a project key for every project.
Light bulb = idea phase of project
Half filled square = in-progress phase of project
Check box square = completed project
Circles with “R” = reoccurring project
30x30 is a self-initiated project where I challenge myself to make 30 pieces of clothing before turning thirty.
Spoiler alert: That didn't happen.
Some might call this a failure. I call it one of the toughest projects I'm still working on.
Now in my early thirties, I continue to challenge myself to reach for the moon. And to finish this thing, one day at a time.
You can follow my progress on this project over here.
Web & Video
Sometimes the stuff you already have is worthy of attention.
Mend and Alter is the place where all of my many interests and hobbies intersect. So, I decided it was time for a little refresh.
Video, animation, fabric scraps and thrift stores, Photoshop and InDesign - it's all game, if it gets me to where I desire to go.
Design / Media: Adobe - Photoshop, Illustrator, Lightroom, Premiere; Website - Squarespace (Avenue template); Apple - Garage Band; Video / Photography - Canon T3i, 80d
Projects #16 & #17 (in progress)
Is there a limit to my love?
I guess not. After a year (or two) long break, I'm back. Attempting to add two items to my handmade wardrobe.
Like usual, I fell in love with the yarn and fabric first. Smitten by warm gold tones, denim, and unicorns.
