conversations with my 2-3 year old friends.

(talking about england)

juniper: whats yurup?

miss. grace: europe. its a place across the sea. there are lots of castles and it used to be a land full of magic and there even used to be dragons there!

juniper: *gasp* what happened to them? are they still there?

miss. grace: no they all got washed away in a big flood and they are gone now. they don’t live in this world anymore.

juniper: *gets really close and whispers* there used to be baby elephants too.

(4 hours into the day)

lilyanna: *stares at miss. jerrica for about 6 seconds* I bite. I bite john-boden




I got this fantastic green and blue and yellow plaid fabric from hobby lobby. I thought it would be a great idea to make a dress out of it.

then I remembered catholic schools.

so I am half way done making my school uniform.

but whatever. because it feels good to be sewing again.

young mothers

its been a while since I posted on here. school, work, family, church, friends. theres a lot thats has been going on. in my religion in the public square class our prof gave us an alternative to writing a research paper. instead we could use the arts to portray some sort of ethical/political issue that is hot in the public square and the church. I was the only one in the class who opted for that. 

these photos are meant to represent two young women who either are or were pregnant.

1) uninformed/pressured


 2) shame/regret
