Building & Making

It's been a very busy spring so far between work, illustration projects and some personal projects. Last week I finished up a weaving project at the studio, a gift for my main man. Since it's a bit of a trek to get to the studio I spent part of the weekend building my own warping board so I can do that part at home. It was pretty simple and I am just thrilled with the final product. I measured out the warp for my next project on it already. 
This weekend I have some fun things on the agenda, more weaving, a hike, and tending to my newly planted herb garden. Let it begin!

I've been working on some really killer illustration commissions lately. They're coming along, I'm really excited about them! I've been listening to podcasts throughout, I'm obsessed with the Discovery Channel ones, Stuff you Should Know and Stuff Mom Never Told You. What podcasts are you listening to?

I recently bought issue 3 of Kinfolk which I was delighted to find on the shelf at my local coffee shop. It's breathtaking, the stories are touching, the photographs are beautiful, and the whole thing together just feels like such a special collaboration. I'm not through reading it yet, but am enjoying every time I sit down with it.

{new shoes}
Things have been busy lately. I bought some new shoes, fancy pink patent leather ones above, loving them! I've mostly been at work, but I've also been doing a good deal of weaving. I recently found a place in Portland where I have access to a loom, and I'm loving being back on one, it's been a few years and I'm a little out of practice. Some of the knowledge came right back, but I've definitely been very grateful for the assistance of the other women who rent looms in the studio as well. It feels like such a warm and welcoming community. I've been posting my progress pics on my Instagram (hellojackiebos) if you'd like to see. 
Recently on the internet: my at home studio is featured on the Boys With Banjos blog. I also did a screenprinting project a little while back for an awesome Portland couple who got married a few weeks ago. Their wedding is featured on the wedding blog Style Me Pretty, my contributions of screenprinted ties for the groom and groomsmen are here.
