Someone recently asked me what inspired this collection and I found myself coming up with some bullshit answer because I didn't want to dig deep and be vulnerable. Then I realized, I do want to explain it, I want to be vulnerable, that's what art is all about right?
Well, at least that's what it is to me.
I have a hard time channeling emotions , sometimes I'm moving so fast I forget to live in the moment and truly feel.
I have a little notebook where I write down random things that usually only make sense to me. I capture a memory, a place, a feeling. Sometimes it's just a song or a color or a time.
7:48pm: I was driving home from my studio, overwhelmed, and exhausted. I realized I hadn't stopped moving all day, I hadn't looked up from my phone or my sewing machine for hours.I looked at the sky, and took a deep breath. It was a deep almost royal blue, with hazy Seattle clouds, it looked exactly like the blue in my collection, so I named it 7:48pm.
This color is a constant reminder to stop and look up.
This is the only one I will share for now, but each color in this collection means something to me, and brings me back to a memory, a time, a place, big or small. It is so important to realize feelings and emotions and to document them.
I hope when you wear these pieces, they will be constant reminders to capture moments and feels, take a deep breath and slow down for a second. Be vulnerable, breathe, and be cozy.

The colors in my current Cozy In Color collection (Moonlit Fog, 7:48pm, Cheek, and Purple Yam) are extremely important to me. They take me back to a specific time and place, a certain memory or feeling. For my first launch of this collection I shared what the color "7:48pm" meant to me. Now, I want to share what the color "Moonlit Fog" means to me.
With this Cozy In Color pt 2 collection, I am offering 12 different solid colors, and rainbow tie-dye. I want you to have this collection in a color that is important to you, a color that brings you back to a specific memory, a specific feeling.
Wear something meaningful AND cozy.
