It is all about getting my stuff together. I am hoping that over the coming break I will be able to photograph/scan some things (old and new) to put up.

I was given the idea to do this from a friend from school. I liked the idea of being able to look back on the process of everything I have made, and I also love looking at blogs where artists do the same thing and post different inspiration and such. I thought I could contribute a little to something I like.

I think the most exciting thing I have documented is from my freshman year (last year). Voila!

I can't upload the rest for some reason, but you can view all photos at www.flickr.com/jolispaons

I love fashion but don't know how to sew so I am trying to work myself into it with different materials. Currently I am working on a dress made of tulle and sticks. I'll post as I am working on it!

Goodnight!

Indian kurti's are just perfect for summers. I recently bought some from the site kaneesha.com they have amazing collection of trendy kurtis. I will say worth visiting the site http://www.kaneesha.com/tunic-top_index.cfm

This dress is amazing. It reminded me of Audrey Hepburn :) I wrote a review about it on my lifestyle blog. You can read it here: http://cloud-nr9.blogspot.com/2010/11/phonebook-paper-dress.html
