Ice dyeing is a fun project that we’ve been meaning to try out for ages! Nellie came across it online maybe a year ago, but it’s taken until now for us to give it a try. The other week we spent a bit of our Friday afternoon experimenting and the results were pretty beautiful. We followed instructions found on Dharma Trading, but I’ve listed basic steps below along with our comments after the jump.
It’s been a steamy week here in New York, but we’ve been having fun in the studio. I’ve been sharing more behind the scenes looks on snapchat – if you’re interested in following along my username is rebeccaatwood. Recently we experimented with ice dyeing which we’ll be posting a how-to for soon. I’ve been working on drawings for the book and we had a great photo shoot on Saturday with Ren Yagolnitzer.

I’m back from the Cape and adjusting to city life again. I must say I really miss my daily swims! I’ve got beach time planned in this year though so I really can’t complain.

I loved this post on Sally King Benedict who I had the pleasure of working with on my book.
I may eat too much Cheese.
The best lobster roll recipe (our summer tradition).
Since over-indulging on vacation I’m taking exercise routine up a notch by adding pure barre classes to my yoga routine. I’m trying to eat healthier too and it’s a perfect time of year for that since I love all the fresh produce. That being said these “healthy” cookies caught my eye.

It’s become a tradition that every summer when we visit my parents Steve and I make lobster rolls. They are my favorite. This year my older sister Grace was there and we all did it together. It was really fun and delicious as always! She’s shared the recipe on her blog so head on over so you can make your own.
