Unexpected Patterns

images via WebEcoist

When I first discovered these images they struck me as beautiful, but I wasn't quite sure what I was looking at. It took me a moment before I realized I was looking at airplane graveyards.

Tally Up

Hey Designers!

I was talking with Olivia a few weeks ago about our Guild going as a group to Printsource or Surtex...what do you guys think? It would substantially cut down our costs and for us first time exhibitors it would be good to go as a group learning together about the process and offer support & encouragement as we go. We could spend this year getting our lines ready to show...what do you think? Is anyone else interested? Which one would you be more interested in attending? Take a vote! See you all on Saturday!

PS-This baby deer is hanging out in my front yard at my new home on Vashon. Woot!
