Kool-aid dyed yarn

Speaking of Tumbler (my lil post the other day)…

Yesterday I posted this old picture of some yarn I spun from wool I dyed with kool-aid. Today I found that picture was posted on tumblr by robot heart. Currently that image has been “noted” and “reblogged” 47 times. How cool is that?

I love tumblr, but usually I just “heart” images that I like, and only share my own images, as I kind of feel weird reblogging another person’s work. BUT, in the case where my image is the one being reblogged, I’ll jump in on the fun and add it to my own tumblr.


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. I figure that if the artist/photographer is being credited, it’s all good. I would never say anything was my own. I try to make sure it is a link to the blog or flickr stream.

    ps- I signed up for the Kara class too!

  2. Oh, I hope my post didn’t come off like I was trying to say that I think other people are stealing images and trying to claim them by reposting them.
    Most people just post beautiful images from all sorts of sources and it’s fine. But I also create my own stuff and I want to share that and I wouldn’t want people to mistake that I’m trying to say that I also made the stuff that I didn’t, ya know?

    I don’t want to offend anyone that uses tumblr as I really enjoy looking at it and ALL of the artwork from artists that other people share.

  3. isn’t it a nice thrill to find something of yours has been liked by a bunch of people that don’t even know you? it’s always a nice surprise. . . provided they actually do link to you!
