moon phase garland

Snow outside, banana bread and this little garland inside. I’ve been wanting something moon inspired and/or gold on my wall for a while now so this came about and I’m just smitten … it looks different in every light and brings that magic lunar feel right into the day.

dip dye affirmations

Something for the soul today: dip dye affirmations. I have a little bowl of random fortunes and quotes by my bed and I love the ritual of reading a few before I go to sleep or when I first wake up, so I thought I’d print some of my favorites on fabric.

It’s important to me to remember the good things in this season of rampant goal setting and resolutions. My long term dreams aren’t going anywhere. Learn to do a cartwheel is something concrete I’ll commit to though … again. Anyone have tips?

My printer did so well with these babies that I thought she could handle some fabric. This project was actually easier than the tissue paper. (You could totally make the affirmations with paper too; the fabric is just a little more special and long-lasting.)

The dyeing process is really spontaneous and meditative and the finished result looks so natural. You can vary the lengths and let them dry in between colors to make graduated effects.

To self-care, ritual, and positive thinkin’.
