a little fun

It's been a stressful week, and today is a sad day. I need a little pick-me-up. Who's with me? I think we could all use one.

Today I have a present for you.

My good friend, Josh, makes amazing mix tapes. He's that music guy, the one that knows about the best stuff that you've never heard of, the one that figures out what you like and introduces you to sounds that you instantly fall in love with, the one that you try to stump with more and more arcane trivia (and who always frustrates you by knowing the answer..ha!).

Josh has been making mixes for his friends for years now, and since we live so far apart, I was thrilled when he gave me the golden key and I was able to download them. Now he's gone one better, and is setting up a website.

He made an inaugural mix for his site, and asked me to design the cover. yay!

I'm really pleased with it. I used photos of my batik and shibori fabrics and layered them all together. Not what I expected it would be when I started, but I like the result- it's very me.

Check out josh's site and present 19. Enjoy!

Thanks! I really appreciate all the comments. :)

Alicia- I'm not really that organized, I just like to pretend sometimes on the blog... ha ha.

You should see the rest of my studio.
