with no surprise, i have been taking lots of inspirations from gems

for my crystal expanse collection.

talk about organic meets geometric! 

these are the kinds of natural beauties

i try to channel when i'm freeform crocheting.

these gems are all from my recent trip to the natural history museum.

in other news, 

 i was thinking about podcasts-

the gals* remarked that i had a lovely radio voice after

my etsy spinning tutorial - haha!

but- the problem would lie in me trying to describe something i captured..

since generally my posts are very visual. so maybe video blogging?

i'm still tinkering with my camera- so there will be a learning curve.

i have at least one post coming up that will at least have some

video component incorporated...

so what do you guys think? podcast? video? sticking w/ typing?

i'd love to hear your thoughts!

happy tuesday!!

love,

laila
