My tidying obsession has refocused itself from the garden (which I’m pretending doesn’t exist now) to finishing up old projects. We had a little cold rainy spell in Seattle and it quickly threw sewing back in full swing. The studio and website continue to evolve and I’ve been scheduling Open Studios and classes a bit here and there before I start traveling for the teaching season.
See those photos in the photo?
For me projects rarely start at Point A and end at Point B, they evolve and can be hard to keep a handle on when things get moved around. My friend Sharon shared a tip with me that I’ve embraced and would like to pass on.
Groovebook is a company that allows you to create nifty little photo books monthly by uploading directly from your phone via their app. You simply download 100 photos and they print and ship for $2.99. It even has perforated pages so you can tear them out and post them up. Just don’t forget to do it, they’re banking on all those that forget for the cost;) You can cancel at anytime.
I stick these ‘in process’ photos up on my wall or in a zip lock if the project has to come down. It’s often intriguing to see the transformation that occurs from the start to finish of a project.
It’s also helpful for those fabric combos you want to keep in mind or the screen shots I take here and there from Instagram when I’m inspired by someone else’s work.
I won’t rave about the quality, but for this type of thing it’s perfectly matched with the price. If you’re interested I’d even Google it to see if there’s a coupon on your first book.
Happy Thursday Peeps!
