LAI GRAI + packaging

hi hi hi!!

well, this post is coming from a much more cheerful place than the last!

let me tell you, i am so much happier already! i felt with rawfish (a very weird name) that i couldn't have my products x-amount of weird because i was already trying to overcome the weirdness of my name. and now, like my broker said ... "you shouldn't have to make the place work, the place should work for you!" (so true) and i feel LAI GRAI is working for ME, baby! well, really, ideally, i'll be working for me. but still, we're getting there!!!!!

you might have noticed... i opened a new etsy shop- laigrai.etsy.com and isn't this banner beautiful?? yes, i designed it. so i'm a *bit* biased. but really, mmm. those colors!!!

and speaking of those colors... guess who painted a wall in her living room serene shades of blue like an ocean? or like jesse says "gazing out a giant window into the blue sky" ... haha, it was me! (you knew that though! hehe)  no picture for you yet of my blue blue blue waves. but coming soon! as someone may or may not be reshooting her collections in front of that wall.

plus, i know since i haven't posted in a bit you all might have thought i was frolicking in the sunshine. alas, i was not. (but i wish!) instead i've been amassing quite the pile of knits! (well, crochets). and wooooo you guys are gonna be blown away when i finally get this beast up & running.

anyyyyway, on to some FUN!

love using the simple silouhette of a sheep for the logo. and the way this picture is staged is wonderful. totally has me craving cheese and has such a great earthy natural richness. can almost taste it. knuthenlund via
