Ahhhhh things are super crazy around here. Kicking out kickstarter goodies, working at new fun jobs and house hunting. (If anyone knows of a 3 bedroom in Wilmington, please let us know!!)

I’m back in sunny Wilmington! (yay) I’m currently crashing at the lovely  I LIKE IT HERE CLUB studio.

Here is an example of one of the many nutritious and delicious breakfasts served at  I LIKE IT HERE CLUB  .

I like it here club and rubyassata joined forces for a friend’s birthday surprise.

We made her leather earrings!

Here’s a close up. Soooooo Georgie.


Things are moving fast around here. SoooooooOOOOO much to come in the next couple months. Did I mention how much I love North Carolina and how happy I am to be back? Well, I am.

I was recently commissioned to make a self-tie bowtie for a birthday. (I’m taking my chances he doesn’t read the blog.) I think it turned out well. They are pretty fun to make, I don’t know why more people don’t make them?

I had only made formal band bowties in the past.  (look at me with blonde hair!!)

It’s was hard to get the shape and length the way I wanted it. I made a few poorly constructed prototypes to get it right.

I really want to make more now. . . maybe the skinny “batwing” bowties? Anybody need a bowtie? I’ll trade you one for a donation to our kickstarter?

I made this card for my grandmother’s birthday. But there were some bumps along the way. ..

This was the first one I made. . . it looks pretty bad. I don’t know where I was going with that happy birthday? So, I cut the flower out and glued it onto another card. Then there was the inside…

Then I messed up the T in birthday. I actually spelled it “b-i-r-h-h-d-a-y.” If you know me, you know spelling isn’t my strong suit. So, I did this.

I pasted a new T triangle over it. I mean, she’s 90, is she really going to notice?? It’s the thought that counts, dammit.

happy BIRTHDAY candles ESTHER !!!!!

20 Feb

I met the lovely Esther at Sundance. While there, her brilliant boyfriend asked me to make her a birthday bag. This is the bag.

I used a vintage buckle to make the adjustable strap. I would kill for more buckles like that.

Funny story about the lining.

I made this dress out of it first. I kept the dress long so that in the future I could reuse the fabric.

On the last day of Sundance, we were walking down the street in Park City and we passed a house with a triangle shaped birthday banner and Esther said that she really liked banners like that.

I remembered that.
