Spring Break Project Mania

Spring Break is here and all I can do is project after project after project....
I started with a shadow box filled with some of my grandmother's old dance cards. My mom read some of my grandmas journal to me while I sewed my next project-felt wallets. My grandmother was hilarious and constantly on the go. It was very entertaining to hear.



Then I made a few earrings.
Then quickly moved on to journals.

I picked up some stuff so I can start screen printing the designs onto T-shirts and bags... Spring Break is just not long enough for all the projects I have in mind. I have also decided (a little last minute) that I am going to go to Salt Lake to visit my sister this coming weekend. So Utah friends-WATCH OUT! You are about to get roped into several time consuming projects without even seeing it coming. Also here is a picture that Blake took with the camera that I gave him for Christmas. This is our friend Kit in board shorts holding some snorkeling goggles and fins. I love it.
Oh and I think I finally scored my first "freelance" graphic design project. Should be fun! I am excited, and nervous, but mostly excited.

all of this stuff is so cool. Kit and I want to know if you think we guys could pull off that wallet at the top, the one that's kind of denim-looking. Porque no? Hey check out Poppy's video tutorial rough draft.

Oh I love all your projects. I hope you have fun in UT! I am hoping we can see you sometime. WE are planning on being in Portland in May. I'll keep you posted as it draws closer. Have a good rest of your Spring Break and good luck on your graphic design project.

dude bro, those jornals look pretty swank. And if you ever need fabric, I do own a quilt/fabric shop.... I'm just sayin :)

Wow -- your projects are amazing! Love them. You're oozing talent. (I've always thought that sounded gross, but that's what popped into my mind)

I want to move to Portland and be your friend. I almost went there last weekend, but ended up in San Francisco instead. I fly standby and the Portland flight wasn't open. I'd love to see your Japan photos.

Get this. Last week, Greg was in a restaurant in Encinitas and, out of the blue, said to this teenager, "You're Blake Baxter's brother!" (I can only imagine what the kid must have thought.) But, sure enough, it was Blakey's brother. Those Baxter genes must be honkin strong ones.
