Just some stuff I did


Friday night The Makers drove out to Rockford for the Rockford Midwestern art show at the Rockford Art Museum. Al had submitted the wood block print kite (shown in the background above, lower left) and was accepted into the juried exhibition. I took that picture with Elinor standing in front, as she is the inspiration for the piece. It was an eclectic show, which was very refreshing, and many familiar faces were there.

Today has been the perfect day, weather-wise. Matt got a call that some servers went down at work, so we decided to ride our bikes across town. While he went inside, I explored around Barsema hall, and the North 40 and found my new favorite place. There is a pond behind Barsema and a couple bridges. Near one of the bridges there is a dam and I was able to climb out onto it and enjoy my surroundings. There were fish, snails and huge tadpoles, tall grass and cattails, bright yellow birds (golden finches?), perfect breeze, perfect temperature…I could have just stayed there all day.

When Matt was done he came out and told me about the other bridge which is a secret/hidden, wooden bridge to get to the North 40 and beyond there was a geocache we located.
We rode our bikes home and I cooked pancakes again. We’re obsessed.

I just went to get my hair cut and I have a huge gripe. Why is it so difficult for hair dressers to understand the concept of cutting hair on a side part? Even after I ask them to cut it on my part, because I NEVER NEVER NEVER wear it in the center, they still want to cut in down the center. Granted I’ve just been going to the Hair Cuttery for a long time now, but still, it’s like beauty school only teaches their students one way and these women have no idea how to stray off that path.I thought the dresser today was going to have an aneurysm trying to understand the concept.


Hi, I'm Robyn and I was Hatched from a Kinder Surprise Egg. Graphic Designer by day, Maker of things by night. I have worked as a graphic artist professionally since I was 16 years old. Went on to get my Bachelors of Art from NIU. I like to share my Artwork online at flickr.com/photos/robayre and on my own personal website http://www.robayre.com. I also have an online shop http://www.robayre.etsy.com where you can find more of my "crafty" sorts of things, as well as a random piece of artwork here and there. Oh, and I'm also an occasional contributor to Artomat (artomat.org).

  1. Your mistake is going to the Hair Cuttery. That was the place where they wet my hair down with a spray bottle, instead of washing it first and then trimmed “half and inch” which was three inches in reality.

    Today was the perfect day though. It was nice to open the windows and get some fresh air through the house. :)

  2. Ugh, it really IS a simple concept and I don’t know why stylists make that mistake. If you’re ever in Los Angeles, I’d be happy to cut your hair Robayre!

  3. I totally know what you mean about the haircut, eeewwwwwwww! I love your new banner :) PS I think I owe you a pendant, for your sis, that we discussed a LONG time ago and that I never sent you…. which one does she want?
