FOLKLORE is on the move – literally! Please pardon the radio silence as I relocate back to my favorite city.
I’m not one for resolutions, but I felt like FOLKLORE could use a fresh start. I started poking around for a new layout and fell in love with Suits, a simplified theme with tons of white space and clean lines. Haven’t worked out all the kinks yet, but I am enjoying the site’s new look.
I’ve got some really fun projects that I’m currently working on and a handful that I cannot wait to start. Be on the look out for updates!
It’s been quiet on folklore these past few weeks, but I’m still here! DJ and I both managed to catch a cold and work has been bonkers, but things should settle down… for a bit. When I can get around to it, I have many projects in the blogging queue. Until then, here are some crunchy and brilliantly colored leaves to hold you over.
PS: how adorable are those flats? I snagged this ladylike Tahari pair at Marshall’s for $35.
Two weeks ago, I started tinkering around with beads and some embroidery floss. I wasn’t thrilled with the result, so I put the project away for a bit. We have been very busy lately and taking a break seemed to be the natural and wise thing to do.
I revisited the unfinished necklace this weekend with renewed creative spirit, and much to my surprise, it didn’t need much work at all. In fact, all I did was swap out a small charm for a giant tassel. Et voila!
The necklace consists of three tassels of various sizes and textures, purple and grey seed beads, a light gold spike charm, and an embellished gold charm. All of the pieces are pulled together by the blue-grey thread for an eclectic but muted look. I can’t wait to layer this with other long gold chains!
Oh! It turns out, this necklace is incredibly soft. Who would have thought?
I’ve had an overwhelming amount of positive feedback these last few weeks, and so I wanted to take a moment to thank you all for your encouragement and kind words. It is hard not to be inspired when you are surrounded by so many creative people.
Really, thank YOU.
See, craft time can be badass, too.
