Have you heard of Tattly ? ! ?

We’re obsessed ! ! !

The founder of Tattly, Tina Roth Eisenberg, was tired of giving poorly designed temporary tattoos to her daughter. Tattly was then born when she teamed up with a team of designers.

Now over 150 designs are available here !

After watching EAMES: The Architect and The Painter I’m head over heels in LOVE with the Eames and their spaces.

Charles and Ray Eames are the dynamic duo behind the ever so famous herman miller chairs.

pinafores. button up oxfords. petter pan collars. bows. pearl post earrings.

She was a notorious pack rat, who’s skirt pocket linings made all the way to her hem so she could hide notes and napkins.

Ray’s office packed with goodies.

Look at that flat file cabinet!

I’m currently working on the TV show “Eastbound & Down” ! I was asked by my supervisors to make an insulated case to protect the magazines from the heat of the sun .

This is what I call a space blanket !

This is a film magazine . It holds 1,000 feet of 35 millimeter film !

We had to measure the magazine with Alisha’s phone charger because we didn’t have a soft measuring tape . (in one week we will have a house with all of our supplies ! and a read studio ! )

Making a pattern .

Alisha and her fancy gold shoes .

Sewing time . . .

screen MAYBE print

10 May

I’ve been working on ideas for our kickstarter screen print. I think its going to be a hand drawn-cut-painted cityscape. Maybe.

I cut this little drawing out of contact paper.

I hope to have this abstract RUBYASSATA logo in the background. This could all go horribly  wrong. I’m going to try to print in the morning.

AND!!! Thanks to all of our fabulous kickstarter backers we now have our very own industrial sewing machine!!

Thankfully, my  dad put the machine together. It was just a bunch of metal and plastic parts in boxes with no instructions. Some how he figured out what to do. Kind of amazing.

(See the other sewing machine in the background? Baby factory!!!)

I have spent the last couple days packing and organizing. Basically, I haven’t ever thrown anything away in my entire life. I might be a hoarder.

Anyone want a life size cardboard cut out of Marilyn Monroe?

I have a week and a half to pack up Rubyassata life ship it to Wilmington and then I’m going to spend a couple weeks in the middle of a no where Missouri. Should be interesting.

Here’ a couple drawings. . .

OH, and we have to finish all the kickstarter rewards before I leave. Don’t worry, we promise you’ll get them soon!!!

THANKS to all our kickstarter backers we were able to get a snazzy new sewing machine!!! We are still blown away that so many people threw in and made this happen. We feel loved. Thank you.
