letterpress, originally uploaded by maybeemily.

I don't have much to say right now, except I am going away for the weekend with my benjamin, for our ONE YEAR wedding anniversary. What! Geez! I can't believe its been a year already!

So I am making us a little present, some buisness cards that we can hand out as a duo, on "hello my name is" stickers. Since they come in sets of two and all. Each one has our different information, but our joined website on the bottom. When we become more awesome than we are now and start to actually update that website, it will be very handy, i'm sure!

Bobmas!, originally uploaded by maybeemily.

Yay! I gathered a few dear friends who knit to celebrate Bobmas, the founding of Ravelry on April 11th! Hooray! We had cupcakes and knitted.


I made tiny baby socks...

and Keren made mutant booties.

Hollie did a very good job at her first re-learning knitting project! (She has since frogged it all and reknitted it)

I finished one of my baby socks after we had eaten dinner. Baby feet are tiny! Here it is compared to Tater:

Happy Bobmas!

Alpacapalooza!, originally uploaded by maybeemily.

Alpacapalooza was AMAZING. Last Saturday, we all met up and enjoyed a full day of adorable, amazing, beautiful animals! (We all being me, Ben, Liz, Astrid, Caley, Bre, Brian, Julia and Harper!)

Ben and I are planning on living in a green house and having alpacas one day, as illustrated in this picture:
Emily and Ben's Future Home

While we didn't get to roll around in the pen with them this year, it was still a wonderful time. We had a picnic lunch, looked at all the booths, and watched the judging in the show ring too. We even saw little kids leading their alpacas through an obstacle course! Jumping over hurdles! Be still, my heart.

If you would like to see the whole Flickr set, this link will take you there!

Close up of Resin City - In Progress

So, although you probably don't know me, you may have gathered from this blog that I like doing a lot of things. I like painting (watercolors, acrylics, gouache, encaustic...), I like knitting (with fancy, beautiful yarns), I like printmaking (letterpress, silkscreen, woodcuts...) I like embroidery (preferably my own designs), I like sewing (blouses mostly), I like cooking (with fresh vegetables)....

Because of this, I have a hard time concentrating on any one project. I will usually dedicate myself to one project per week, and switch between them. I recently finished my cloud embroidery project, I am almost done with my blouse, and I am working on a knitting project (blanket pieces) while I watch movies at home. These little paintings have sat neglected for a month now.
They are acrylic and resin on panel, with many layers of paint and resin. I am really, really pleased with them, but the layering on this piece is especially lovely and unexpected.

So tonight I am going to work on these, and save my other projects for the weekend. But on Saturday, I will be celebrating Bobmas and knitting all afternoon :)
