I'm Teaching A Tie-Dye Scarf Class!

For those of you who know me or have followed Camp Smartypants since the beginning, you know how much I love tie-dye. It's been my dream to be able to offer tie-dye classes for years and I'm finally able to do it with the help of Molly Muriel Apothecary in Milwaukie, Oregon!


Below is the class description and details on how to register. I hope you can join me!

TIE-DYE SCARF CLASS:

Discover the fun of tie-dye and make your own scarf for fall! Each student will be provided one white jersey scarf to dye. Rachel will demonstrate a variety of different tying methods and walk you through the steps of tie-dye. Lots of dye colors will be available to choose from, so you’re sure to make a scarf you will love!

Note: Because tie-dye is a 24 hour process, you will take your dyed scarf home in a plastic bag with simple washing instructions.

CLASS REQUIREMENTS:
Tie-dye can be a messy process, so please come wearing clothes/shoes you wouldn’t mind getting permanent dye on. Plastic aprons and gloves will be available for student use.

When: Thursday, November 13th from 6-8pm
Where: Molly Muriel Apothecary, 11049 SE 21st Ave, Milwaukie, Oregon
Ages: 12+
Cost: $30.00 per student

*Pre-payment is required. Email info@mollymuriel.com with your class request and we will email you back an invoice which you can pay through Paypal. Once your payment is received your spot in the workshop will be held.

Botanical Collages

I finally got around to scanning in some new art I've been working on recently. I had fun making these little botanical collages while house-sitting in Issaquah a few weeks ago. I'd been collecting vintage flowers and seashells from old books and magazines and I love how they compliment each other so well. I played with different arrangements and watercolor doodles...

Protection + Creativity

Sharing a new painting today! This one is all about the hand of protection, creativity and intuition. Inspired by the Hamsa, a protective amulet popular throughout the Middle East and North Africa. I've been seeking new ways to protect and nurture my creative self and this is a reflection of that.

New! Summer Greeting Cards

Hey there! I just got back from a relaxing mini vacation. I spent yesterday with Lindsay (from A Wooden Nest) at her Dad's house in Mill City, OR. We ate delicious pizza, swam in an ice cold river, and relaxed in the sun. It was the perfect day!

Today I'm back home and back to work. I've just finished two new greeting card designs inspired by summer. The first is "Let's Luau!" – perfect for birthdays, anniversaries or any other summer celebration...

Let's Luau - $4.00 each
These pink flamingos are true "Love Birds." A fun, unique card for weddings, anniversaries or Valentines!
Love Birds - $4.00 each

New! Spiral-Bound Journals


Happy Monday! I'm excited to share two new spiral-bound journals I've just added to my Etsy shop! They are designed and handmade by me (with the help of my friend Alison).

First is the Animal Playground Journal- I originally created the art for this while taking MATS. I'm so excited to see it now used in real life! It's 5x7 in size and has 60 blank white pages inside.


Next up is the new Adventure Journal. It's 6x8 in size and comes with 60 blank white pages inside. What's special about this journal is that you can write your name on the cover AND it comes with a full page of art to cut and paste into your journal pages as you go.
