For lack of something of my own creation to write about, I thought I’d mention another maker’s beautiful work.
I came across Block Shop Textiles several months ago and instantly fell in love with Lily Stockman’s amazing silk and cotton scarves. Today I finally convinced myself to purchase one. That indigo herringbone beauty pictured first will soon be mine! Or one like it anyway. You should definitely go and oggle their site.

I know I’ve been pretty absent from Tumblr and Etsy (as well as my other social media outlets) as of late, but it has all been for a good cause! I have been preparing to return to school to finish my bachelors degree and I’m so very excited. Tomorrow I begin the first of my four remaining semesters of my art history/painting degree. I will have my first-ever chemistry class, that I am much looking forward to. It will be so refreshing to learn something new.
After I complete my bachelors degree, the plan is to continue on to a masters program in art conservation. There is a great deal of hard work ahead of me and I couldn’t be more pleased.
Unfortunately, I expect school to cut into my Fawn Relic shop time. I intend to continue with my shop, but in more of a hobby capacity. I love making beautiful, functional goods and will continue the Fawn Relic line in small and limited batches.
In the spirit of the new year I’ve decided to make a few resolutions:
1. Learn to play an instrument (I was thinking something exotic, like the mandolin).
2. Develop the perfect oatmeal recipe.
3. Keep an art journal.
4. Learn to speak French.
I’ve already started in on two of these resolutions. I’ve downloaded the MindSnacks French iPhone app and have started my first few French lessons.
I’ve also started an art journal. I’m already behind on it, but as soon as I procure a new glue stick, I should be back in the game!
Happy 2013, friends!
I just wanted to let everyone know that the shop will be closed for the holidays from Dec. 15 - Jan. 1. Place your orders now to receive them in time for your celebrations! Thank you all for a lovely year.
