Cheerleading aside, I've been busy since my last post.
When Kai was a baby, his all-time favorite song was Owl City's "Fireflies". If you haven't heard it, you can hear it here. I've had it on my playlist forever, and he still requests it every now and then. The last time he did, I had an idea to put fireflies in his room.
How to do it? VINYL! More specifically, glow-in-the-dark vinyl.
And if Kai was going to have fireflies, it was only fair for Cam to have them too. So I got to work painting up some (4) canvases.
And then we lined them up to admire our work.
Finally, we hung them up. The boys love looking at the fireflies when they go to bed at night.
After the firefly canvases, my latest project has been dyeing fabric. I tried a few different experiments, and I think that the shibori dyeing technique is by far my favorite. (All the way to the left.)
These were done on cotton gauze with Dylon fabric dye. I'm still experimenting with different techniques and would love to carry some hand-dyed baby blankets in the shop once I've tested a few different things out and see what I like best.
Hope everyone is enjoying their new year!
