I made this photogram using my two favorite necklaces, I wear them as often as I can. We are often told that a good measure of a person’s character is who they choose to surround themselves with, but what about the things they constantly carry? Why are, “what’s in my bag?” posts so popular on the internet? Could you tell who I am by the jewelry I wear daily? By that black sweater I insist on bringing everywhere? The hair pins I’ve forgotten on your dresser?
No one ever plans on disappearing, but we all move on here & there & we always leave some kind of trace. I wonder how the things we leave behind speak for us after we’re gone.

When I made that last photogram, an afternoon meeting had been canceled & I decided to take advantage of the sun! I made this one with a shirt of mine & my school of fish pin. These are so fun to make! Cyanotype paper is a bit expensive in my opinion, but I do think it’s worth the price because just about everything you do on it looks beautiful. I love the contrast of the deep blue & white!
There’s another one I made that I’m quite fond of, but I will post it later as I would like to yammer about it for a bit.

A while back I got a really gross cold that left me tired & delusional much of the time for about a week or so. Anyway, once I started feeling a bit better, my hands were itching to move & I kind of just started spider webbing out. I didn’t intend to make anything really, I just wanted to crochet so I made a large motif & was happy that some parts kind of looked like pretzels.
I didn’t know what to do with it though, I figured I could make a bunch of them & do another afghan & maybe I will. But first I decided to use it to make a photogram.
