Embroidery by Lauren DiCioccio  

Sorry for the lack of posts lately! For awhile I was getting back into it and then things at work got crazy and then things in my personal life got crazy (today I found out that I'm going to be moving again this summer and tomorrow I'm leaving for a Chicago vacation and everything just keeps coming!)

Anyway, on my friend Samantha's tumblr, I saw this amazing embroidery piece by Lauren DiCioccio and immediately had to look up more of her work.

Both of my parents grew up in families that were big on photography and who had their film developed as slides so that their pictures could be projected. I spent most of my growing up sorting through these boxes and holding the slides up into the light so that I could see the pictures they contained. Obviously I was drawn to Lauren's embroidered 35mm slides (which are actually done to scale!)

You can see more of Lauren's slides

You can see even more of Lauren's work on her official site.

When I first saw the picture I thought it was huge. I never even considered to be so small. She is really talented.
