Today and tomorrow on the blog we wish you a happy Spring as we go back in time to revisit some of our favorite Easter Egg projects here at the studio. You can read about the Star Wars Easter Egg endeavor here. May the force be with you.
Time is flying over here at the studio as I wrap things up at my job of 12 years at Beinfield Architecture. I’ve got just 8 more days until Sequined Asphault Studio Photography gets 100% of my career attention. And as I clean out one office that’s been a wonderful and challenging learning experience, I am putting together another room that’s sure to be even more challenging and hopefully, even more wonderful.
This is a peek at the awesome nursery mobile I found at the Etsy shop, Pink Cheeks Studios. Multi-cultural kids, dressed as bears, and going to a party. You can’t beat that. Nichol also has some great dolls and prints. I love the use of colors and textures throughout the collection.
I can’t wait to show you more of our new baby’s room as things progress, and of course, a full nursery tour in the not to distant future.
So I’ve decided I’m finally ready to discuss this on the internet, since there’s really no hiding it anymore. I’m waddling around with 8 weeks to go until my due date. We are having a baby! Apparently soon.
Today was another snow day here in New England, so it was perfect timing to prep a tiny, little knitting project. Don’t read into the yarn color choices because it’s all a surprise. Not so much a surprise that I don’t like pink or baby pastels, but you get the idea. I’d dress the kid in all grey and black if I could find that in the store.
I’ve been exhausted, which explains my fall/winter blog hiatus, but as I wrap things up at my day job, I’m finding a bit more energy. I cannot wait to share all the upcoming excitement and changes going on around these parts. We’ve also moved, so not only are we designing a nursery, we are trying to get the rest of the house and my studio in order before week 40. I’m keeping everything crossed here so there are no early deliveries.
We are definitely feeling really blessed. And I am thrilled and excited for the opportunity to create a completely new, fulfilling, creative life for myself over the coming years. Thank you for being part of the journey. xoxo
The awesome Budgie Striped Sweater Pattern is by Grumperina. The yarn you see is Black Worsted Merino Superwash from Plymouth and the scrumptious Dragonfly Fibers is Superwash Merino in Traveller. The variegated little purple cake is some Tiny Owl hexapuff-destined Koigu.
It’s been a while, friends. We are a full 2 months into 2013. Wow. You haven’t seen me here, at one of my favorite places on the web, Tripping on Asphalt, since the fall. I’ve missed you.
There is tons of new excitement here at the studio and beyond, and I am so thrilled to share it with you over the next few months. And in the midst of the whirlwind, I’ve been quietly working away on amazing projects with inspiring designers and developers.
A sincere thank you goes out to all of you who have been supporting me behind the scenes both personally and professionally. And I thank all my wonderful blogger friends who have inspired me with their great content during a time when my keyboard has been silent.
One of those people is Gretchen Black, co-founder and designer at LuluBelles, where she and her cousin, Natalie, design wonderful handmade jewelry pieces from vintage finds. We met at a bloggers’ workshop last year and I was struck by her creative lifestyle and entrepreneurial spirit. At the start of the year, when I was too overwhelmed and tired to even consider resolutions, I stumbled upon a blog post where Gretchen described her process of dedicating a single word to the upcoming year. What a wonderful idea!
I immediately knew the word that would best help me embrace the journey of my year to come. And today, I am thrilled to be back here, including you in my Adventure, guiding me to explore, take risks, and create the life I most want to live.
These guys look to do a ton of lap sitting, especially during the knitting hours. In today’s edition of Yorkies in the Wild, we are at Uncle CawfeeGuy’s house and I’ve just completed a knitted bird’s nest in preparation for Susan B. Anderson’s awesome reversible bird and egg knitted toy. Funnily enough, someone discovered the bird’s nest makes the perfect sized hat to transform a Yorkie into an old Russian woman. Since those pictures of Rufus have been deemed too undignified for a Terrier by way of Yorkshire, you get this picture of Chewie looking (shocker) annoyed.
