People are boring

But you’re something else completely

Damn, let’s take our chances

It’s finally here! The 2015 edition of the Spring Mix Tape. As you know, I create a mix tape (i.e. a 2-3 albums of curated music as well as handcrafted cover art) twice a year- once for spring and another for fall. I ask my friends to submit songs that remind them of that particular season then curate their great music into “albums.” The music is always excellent and always of a wide variety (my favorite part!). But the best experience for me is creating the cover art, which has also varied widely: from screen printed canvas to watercolor to this season’s piece: collage. In fact, this season’s cover may be my favorite. I enjoyed the free form of the collage process as well as the structure of creating a “booklet” that literally stands on its own.

Copies of the mix tapes are for participants only, but luckily for you, I’ve put together public Spotify playlists for everyone to enjoy. Here’s to new music, art making, and above all else, the great friends to who make it happen, year after year…!

It’s only a handful of days before I leave for Europe, so it’s down the wire on a couple creative projects I’m trying to complete. The first is posting new items in my Etsy vintage clothing shop, The Gibbson Girl. I’ve finally photographed every last piece in my inventory, so it’s time to get them measured and up on the shop!

The second project is my annual Spring Mix Tape. For this iteration, I’m creating collaged booklets. The concept was fairly simple but the execution is slow going (but worth it!).

With just a few days left to finish this all up, wish me serious luck!

Cheers!
