Let's hippity hop down memory lane today... in 2008, while enrolled in fine art at the U of M, I did a bit of experimental abstract work. This is still one of my favourites. #jesscapriart #abstractart

So... I did it! I wouldn't have been able to make something so beautiful without my absolutely phenomenal instructor, Cynthia Boehm (Cynthia Boehm Designs on fb). My goal in taking her class was to develop new skills, as well as appreciation for traditional art/making from in and around Treaty territories 1-8/Manitoba as I had begun working with vintage furs. I also wanted to connect with the part of my heritage that (long story short) my mom's adoption agency hid from her for most of her life. I have no interest in monetizing this skill #ajesscaprioriginal #moccasins #moccasinmaking #handmade #c2centreforcraft

Has anyone else been getting really strange and highly politicized ads lately? My usual ads are for yarn and cabin rentals. My browsing patterns have not changed. In the last two days I've been shown a pro gun ad, one to check my "intersectionality score" and compare my oppression with friends! (Literally!! πŸ™„) And just now an ad directed at women who have had abortions who need to turn to Jezus. What a wild ride that was. @instagram I demand to know why you're suddenly spewing all this at me, is it bc you know I love reporting ads? Am I a barometer of ad acceptability to you? A "test" account before you submit ads to the greater population? (Image of hoarfrost in downtown winnipeg taken last fall by me)

The Mom Hat. I try not to post too many toques, but this will be the third in a row because I really like it! πŸ€“ I designed this for my mom, who requested a toque to match her grey hair. The hat features locally dyed wool from @oliveparkyarns held double, topped with recycled fur and a recycled leather tag. #ajesscaprioriginal #toque #knithat #knitdesign #makingitupasigoalong #furpom #recycledgarments #knitting #leftyknitting #wool #biodegradableproducts #canyoutellidontblockmyprojects
