Fall is the real start of the new year to me. School starts. Etsy perks up. I can finally wear all of those cute sweaters I have missed all summer. So I decided to bring something fresh into my shop.
Artists sometimes divide themselves into product first or process first types. I definitely get inspired by materials and process first, without necessarily having a product in mind. Several months ago I acquired these great vintage thread spools. More recently I have been left with piles of colorful matches in the process of making matchbook notepads. This summer I began work on some new, repurposed wall art using these materials. They start going up this week in my Etsy shop. Enjoy!
