hey friends! it's been a while i know- i am NOT the worlds best blogger. but i do have some exciting news to share. i am going to be in Poppytalk Handmade's MIXED TAPE Market from sept 21- oct 16! i am super excited and super over-worked- which, as always, is my very own fault! i guess it's better than having nothing to do but i need to learn how to not eat, sleep and breathe luggage and art..... nice try rachel.

i remember making mixed tapes. getting one tape to record onto another and getting the timing just right between songs. those were some good times. all set up in front of all of my fathers black music equipment. 2 tape decks a record player an equalizer? i didn't know how half of the stuff worked but i knew how to make a mixed tape. i'd make them on the weekends. they would fill up my time. and the music would fill up my head and heart and take me away from all the pain and confusion of growing up. music = escape.

i couldn't ask to be in a cooler market. it's called mixed tape for cryin out loud! sweet. excited. overwhelmed and taking an airplane trip soon. to gather some of my friend's ashes and his camera.
october will be here before we know it. i will say hello to michigan for you. i will take many many pictures.

until next time.....
