Holding Summer

Monday, August 26th, 2013

There is a slight chill in the air tonight…getting darker earlier….summer is fading.

It was a glorious one…rare in the Pacific Northwest to have so many days of consecutive sunshine…what a gift.

Been working like mad in the studio preparing for new fall designs…love working with the palette of Autumn. No pumpkins and scarecrows mind you, but how I love to collage with shades of rust and wheat and green….makes me want to put on a sweater. But as this wondrous summer fades, I didn’t want to lose that sense of tranquility that only the sun can bring. I was working on a set of magnets for myself…to remind me…to breathe, relax, flow and be at peace.

Liked them so much I thought I should share…so here they are….posted on my bulletin board and my never ending to-do lists…my zen magnets:)

Hope it helps!

Is it just me, or is anything that helps me “remember” becoming increasingly useful and appreciated?

Granted, I am at that stage in life where if it isn’t on a post it or pinned to a board or openly showing on my magnet board, it’s lost in the ether. At first I have to say I found this frustrating…now I realize, it is another great opportunity to create little collage sets of information all around my home and studio. To that end, I just finished designing our new line of magnets.

As you all know, there are a lot of magnets out there. Which I actually find comforting…makes me feel like I am not the only one who has to keep life’s details on the front page in order to get them done. But I did find a few things lacking in most of the magnets out there…for example: they have to hold lots of paper and not slip off the board ( or refrigerator). And since these magnets are part of my new “absolutely can’t forget this” collage series, I wanted them to be fabulous looking…worthy of being featured on a daily basis. Which leads me to the gift packaging…who do you know that doesn’t need a charming and useful accessory to help manage daily life? I thought the tins did just the trick.

Please take a browse through our new MAGNETS! section on the website…and as always, enjoy!
