jónsi & alex craft up food, music & art

anyone who knows me knows that i'm super keen on sigur rós and think that jónsi is an angel (or out of this world). so it's pretty much awesome that he and his beau alex have a vegan raw food diet. they share the recipes. and make cooking videos!

jónsi & alex have been making art and music for a while. i envy such constant artistic ambition, especially when it has such magical results. (see their website for a list of evidence.)
those two and their vitamix is just about the cutest thing ever. i can't stop watching the videos! here's a teaser:

graph paper

making library card pouches has made me think more about paper, and how one can turn fabric into paper. paper as fabric, fabric as paper. in looking through my ginormous fabric stack to make some new stuff with, i came across two geometric fabrics, reminiscent of graph paper. so again, paper meets fabric. i had a bit of fun using metallic embroidery floss to add a bit of bling to the wallet.

and in case you're wondering, no i am not going to start working more with actual paper. i'll leave that to the experts!

these cuties are now in the shop!

sneaux day!

they predicted a blizzard and everyone was going crazy! it resulted in a snow day and a magical day off work, which made way for a bit of snow shoveling and outdoor exploration before i began my long to-do list. i crossed off a few things on this stay inside kind of day.
also, i was recently interviewed by a local paper as part of a blue house market profile series, featuring a variety of blue house artists. it's kind of weird that it says i "own" dang argyle. because cortney and i own dang argyle together forever. :)
