yesterday my friend kinsey and i went to a really cute boutique in downtown raleigh and attended a little afternoon cross-stitching/mimosa fest. it was freakin' awesome. i was so glad kinsey agreed to go with me. i'm bad at interacting with strangers, but i love doing art stuff and i desperately want to make friends with other crafty people. (lol did i actually talk to anyone and try to make friends with them? no! of course not! way too shy! but i was THERE. baby steps.) so! my darling husband agreed to watch our daughter for a few hours while i went out and did something frivolous, creative, and just for myself. it ruled.
the store and group hosting the gathering had four cute designs to choose from, plus blank cloths for you to design your own thing. guess which one i chose, ha! so now, as a treat for reading my dumb blog, you get to be in on a little design secret i've been keeping... i'm obsessed with lightning font. i'm working on a series of lightning font cards for NSS... they're badass. i can't wait to share them with you.
