Friends


A couple of weeks ago I came across this cool peacock fabric at Mountain of the Dragon's shop on Etsy. My dear friend who loves peacocks had a birthday coming up so I purchased a half yard of this gorgeous 55% linen and 45% cotton print. When it arrived it was even prettier than in the pic. The half yard was just enough to make a tote bag. I was so happy that she was thrilled with the bag!


As this post is about friends, I want to mention another dear friend of mine, the very talented Damjana of Loddelina designs. She creates very unique and beautiful bags and accessories adorned with amazing embroidery and more. I am a proud owner of one of her super sweet keychains pictured below. She was kind enough to send me one as a gift/prize for completing our Holiday Boot Camp Challenge. I had my eye on it for a long time so you can imagine how pleasantly surprised I was when I opened my package and there it was!


Shop Update: Lots of bags are in production in the studio. I'm still waiting for a shipment of heavy interface to arrive so I can complete them. I have to get better at monitoring my inventory. 

Wishing everyone a happy Friday and a wonderful weekend ahead!

The Pesky Cat's Day Dream

Katzenhohle by Dornroeschen Filzunikate I recently came across this incredible cat bed made by German artist Dornroeschen Filzunikate. This beautiful piece of functional art called a Katzenhohle , cat cave, is handmade of felted wool. It's definitely the most unique cat bed I have ever seen. It would bring a bit of nature into my urban NYC home. I think my Anni would love a cat cave although her favorite spots right now are the pillow behind my head in bed, a straw basket that was meant to store magazines and a storage box made from fabric that becomes a hammock when she sleeps in it. My sweet Anni FOX 5 Update : A while back I wrote a post about a story that Fox 5 news was doing on Etsy and the handmade market. I was interviewed in my studio as part of the feature. An Etsy press agent recently informed me that the story aired April 15th and he also missed it. He said he is trying to get a copy of it from the studio. I'll be sure to post a link to it when it becomes ava

Spring is Here!

To celebrate the spring equinox I decided to take the entire day off from working in the studio. OK, I confess I did sew one button onto an applique, but that's it! The rest of the day was spent bike riding, watching waves and smelling spring flowers wafting through the air. The weather was absolutely beautiful with temperatures in the mid 70's. No jacket required. Just a t-shirt and sunglasses. Hope you are all having a great weekend and enjoying the arrival of spring!
