Basically, I have been filling my days with drawings and thank you cards. I’m not posting the drawings because, I want them to be a surprise.

Here’s a thank you card from a guest artist.

New old fabric!! I love new old fabric! Let me know if you run across any good prints?

Look what was just mailed to RACO(rubyassata company)!!! New markers, pencils, and paper!! Super excited. (Notice that hot pink le pen!!)

Also, this beautiful umbrella can be all yours!!! I just posted it on the Sundae, Sundae, Sundae vintage site.

Because we received so much love from Kickstarter we want to showcase  a new kickstarter project each week. We have to start with our good friends at Freaker USA!!!! Spread the love and get your FREAKER on!!!!!!!!!

This is what happens when I’m left alone. Super mess time.

I did manage to make  a few glittery thank you cards !

I also visited the most super cool fabric store today, Mary Jo’s Cloth Store in Gastonia. First opened in 1951 by Margaret Colien Cloninger in the back of her father’s grocery store. It’s the sweetest giant fabric store in North Carolina. You should really go.

I’m working on ETsy and website updates. Stay tuned!!!

NEW postcard, MY bathtub & OLD screen prints

18 Mar

The place I print postcards was having a sale today and we need some for the Charleston Style Swap, so I made these. I really wanted to do a drawing or something more intricate . . . but this is cool, too.

I hand washed some vintage fabric/dresses today. The water turned yellow.

I found these old screen prints under my bed. The top right print is fucked up. Maybe I’ll turn some of them into kickstarter thank yous??? Maybe you would like one??? If so, go here!!!

(please and thank you!!!)
