Fabric Lab Show

This June 13th I will show some work at the Fabric Lab on Colfax. It will be a modest show to pay tribute to these modest times. So modest, that this blog shall have no photo and no, it's not because I'm too lazy to post one.

My Dosha

I am a Vata. This is my dosha. 
Vata-type people are generally thin and find it hard to gain weight. Because of this,  Vatas have very little energy reserve and can tire easily and get themselves out of balance. Vatas need to get sufficient rest and not overdo things,  stay warm, and keep a regular lifestyle routine. The Vata dosha controls all movement in the body, including breathing,  digestion,  and nerve impulses from the brain. When Vata is out of balance,  anxiety and other nervous disorders may be present. Digestive problems,  constipation,  cramps,  and even premenstrual pain usually are attributed to a Vata imbalance., The most important thing to know about Vata is that it leads the other doshas. Vata usually goes out of balance first,  which causes the early stages of disease. More than half of all illnesses are Vata disorders. Balancing Vata is important for everyone,  because when Vata is in balance,  Pitta and Kapha are generally in balance as well.

I am learning more about what this means.

Would You Get A Load Of This Guy?

I love my baby Miles. When he experiences something for the first time, take this shopping cart for example, it makes me feel like I'm experiencing it for the first time too. I was just like this guy, little and smiley. I will work my hardest to maintain his wonderful little nature.

This Is Rediculous

The packaging for these eggs makes me queasy. It's absurd that consumers that have the means to recycle can't recycle some things. Things like this semi-precious egg carton that will live on longer than I will. Having a dozen of them in my fridge kept me up late one night. I should be thinking of other things in bed.

Making A Pile

I am gathering images of all my favorite things. Soon, I'll be posting the best and worst of things for life, mom and baby.

Kiehl's Panthenol Protein Moisturizing Face cream, which at $27 for a 4 oz. pot is a much better deal then Oil of Olay. So far, it's lasted me for at least 5 months. Since, I live in Colorado and my skin is always thirsty, I have to use a moisturizer every day. With others creams, my makeup instantly dries and creates a flaky layer all over my nose. I only wish I had this ten years ago when I first landed here.

Toms For A Song

Look at these darling, vegan little baby shoes. Tiny Toms at Nordstrom Rack for $7, originally around $30. Every pair you buy, Tom's sends a pair to a child with none. 
Take a look at this wonderful brand.
