So, it's been 2 months since I posted. OOPS. What can I say, last semester was a doozy, and when it was done I just needed a break. A long break. I hung out with family, cooked/baked like a mad woman, had many house guests, an epic new years party and lots of cuddle time with Eric & Enzo. But, I'm back! And resolving to post at least once every 2 weeks. Promise. Here is just a little taste of what I did in the last few months. Day of the Dead poster (class project) CD cover for my friend,...

Bought these animal stamps on my last thrift store adventure. They are super-cheap little kid stamps- which makes them even more charming, in my opinion. The text stamps I have had for years, but never really used. So, Eric and Rae had a craft night. Here are (some of) the fruits of our labor. Lower left just might be our Xmas card this year, who knows. Continue reading

Just got back from AIGA Design Camp in Nisswa, great! Aaron Draplin spoke on Friday. A down to earth, uber-talented, weiner dog owning, garage salin', all around nice guy. He was selling posters of "pretty much everything up to until May 27th, 2009"-super cool poster, super cool guy. It really started the weekend off right. you should buy one too! I had a great time meeting new folks & getting better acquainted with some of my classmates. I was reminded once again what a beautiful place Minnesota can be. The Grandview Lodge was charming, the weather was gloomy (but... Continue reading

In honor of this thing called The Impossible Project (which is not only saving polaroid film, they are making it better) I have a few of my favorite polaroids. 1. My first time at the Art Shanty Project in the snapshot shanty with Frankie, Peter, Michael & Eric. 2. Me climbing into a tree back in 1999, i believe. Junior in high school. My friend Katy and I were REALLY into polaroids back then. 3. Eric and I at a really amazing Xmas Cookie Party last winter. 4. Eric on said Xmas partie's polaroid scavenger hunt. Each team gets...

A little background on this poster: My friend Byron owns a bar in my hometown of Pomeroy, IA. He is an old dead head, and his bar is themed accordingly...dancing bears all over, steal your faces every where you turn, i think they're even tie dying the outside of the bar (i don't know how that is even possible). Pomeroy is also home to one of the larger wind farms in the midwest. And I will have the honor of not only attending and partying it up with the family, but I'll hopefully make a little cash selling these babies...bonus! Continue reading

I could have been more productive today. I am working on a poster for my friend Byron's street dance this weekend. I was really chugging away at it yesterday...then Eric talked me into coming over to play rummy on the porch. I told myself I would finish it today. Alas, I found many other things to do besides the poster. This is one of them: I had this amazing little bird book that I got at a rummage sale. When I found it I immediately thought "Collage!"...and then I immediately brought it home and let it sit around my apartment... Continue reading

I would give this chair to my boyfriend. 4 years ago when things between us were getting serious, he was looking for jobs across the country in california. I agreed to tag along if it worked out.on his first trip out there for an interview, he got me a postcard of charles & ray in their california home. he forgot to send it...but gave it to me in person when he got home instead. and there it was on the back, him telling me he loved me for the first time. (a BIG step for him). I cried (in a good way;) and loved him back and framed the postcard and it sits on my desk to this day. We both have a slight (or major) obsession with mid century furniture. AND we are tired of sitting on each others laps in front of the computer. Also, my name is Rae....bonus!

Already? Yep. Check it out in my Etsy shop. I have had the past two days off, and since I lost the key to my apartment this weekend, I am sort of stuck here until my new key is made. I have to call my apartment manager everytime I want to leave the has been a real pain, letmetellyou. On the upside, it has forced me to be pretty productive. It has also left me to check my etsy site every 10 minutes to see how many people have looked at my stuff. And I did have one sale!!!!!... Continue reading
