Lauren Hinds, Cloth, Frocks and a Little Boy Named Ari

Frocks

I'm excited about a few things today.

One of my favourite people finally started her blog. Lauren Hinds is an illustrator, designer, bookbinder (I have a handmade journal from her; it's absolutely gorgeous) and a friend of mine. She's currently based in the US where she's studying.

My family has grown a bit with the addition of my fourth nephew earlier today. Ari's a perfect little boy, with a full head of black hair, trying to suck his hands last I heard. I'm very excited -- I love those boys to bits.

I was asked to model for a regional design company called The Cloth. Great experience, exhausting but awesome. The photographer is Arnaldo James who can pull mood and texture out of anywhere.

Coming out of that experience, was an opportunity which I will post about at a later point. I'm thrilled about it though.

I'm studying and whatnot so forgive my lapses. Exams are next week so I should be back on stream after that.

Also, I was featured on two very cool blogs: Parapluies at Soleil (Khristian is an illustrator and a generally fly person) and Dolls of Colour. Thank you ladies!

Keep good and blessings!
