These past few weeks have been filled with an abundance of joy, adventures, and thrills! It was with great excitement I launched my photography website: michelledupont. 'Now' feels like the right time to embark on this new journey and direction. Photography has become such an integral part of my life - a passion that has presented opportunities in my path that I would never have otherwise explored - a passion I want to share with others around me.
My new photoblog was also launched last week, and so far I have been overwhelmed with the wonderfully warm response it has received. If you have a moment, please stop by there and here and say hello - i'd love to hear from you.
Of course, I'll still be continuing with my first love - twoandsix. I feel so lucky to be able to indulge in two things that make my heart sing: crafing + photography, and it's only going to get busier in my little home as I prepare for the Niche Market in August!
In amongst all the excitement, I picked up some deliciously soft, chunky yarn and was taken back to where my love of crafting began - a four year old little girl sitting at her mothers feet. Big, chunky yarn (it was a wonderful turquoise color) with thick knitting needles. "In, around, under, off" where her directions, and I learnt them well. Garter stitch always reminds me of those early days, when life was simplier and I all I had to remember was "in, around, under, off"!
So, to celebrate the events of recent weeks, the pleasure of simple things, and my love of garter stitch, I made this incredibly simple scarf with tassles. Beautifully long and warm, it wraps around my neck three times. It makes me happy. Simply.
Now, some happy news for you all (well, I hope it will make you happy)! I made a scarf for you too - just because I wanted to. Just because I wanted to say 'thankyou' for stopping by, and leaving so much love behind when you do. Just because I wanted to share. I'm also going to give you a 8 x 8, or 8 x 10 photo print from my 'STILL' portfolio - your choice! This way you get a little piece of two things that I love!
