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.

7.5.11 grilled TUNA spinach sallad
Lots of amazing dinners and a little kickstarter screen printing.

All of this went into . . .

7. 3. 11- poor kids SARDINE pasta.

Along, with sardines the pasta was arranged with all the goodies from the above picture.

This was my first idea for the kickstarter canvas print. I did it a while back.

6. 30. 11 slappy white’s two bean CHILI

The corn, tomatoes, peppers and onions were roasted on the grill before turning into magic chili.

Ohhh look at that new monogramed NORTH CAROLINA field notes!!! Get your own here.

This is the the start of the the KS print on canvas. I don’t think it’s quite finished yet. . .

Tomatoes from the farmers market.

7. 7. 11 hedley lamarr VEGETABLE wrap

Green beans count as protein, right? Regardless, it was stupid good.

Sooooo. . . still not satisfied with where my other KS prints were going, I decided to do another print.

I had to used student grade emulsion for the new print which is good and bad.

The new print is yet another cityscape but with clothes lines. I’m liking the way things are looking.

I promise ALL kickstarter rewards will be done before summer ends!!!!!

I’m finally REALLY headed back to Wilmington today to be reunited with Courtney and my old life.

Updates to follow. . .

 

ThE CAVE !

25 May

Alisha is here . . .

I am here . . . (thanks for the new desk Kit ! ) We are taking this month to divide and conquer ! And SOMEHOW we will do that while Alisha has little to no internet or phone service. yikes !

I sorta feel like this bird I found today when I think about Alisha being in Missouri . . .

 I bought this at Goodwill to make me feel better. Awesome right? Hopefully it will fit over the mantel we don’t have yet.

Oh, and this ! Bam !

Please bare with us as we work from two different parts of the country. We know some of you have yet to receive your kickstarter treats but time can only make them better !  (And I think it makes the heart grow fonder. ) As soon as this duo is back together, your rewards will be arriving in a mailbox near you  . . .

Thanks. We love you all.  x0x0

Movin’ on UP

20 May

Well it’s done. Everything I own is in Wilmington. (Even my car) It’s been a long couple of days.

On Sunday I’m driving my mom’s car to Missouri. I’ll be gone for a month and RUBYASSATA will have to be on hold. We desperately tried to get all the kickstarter rewards finished but, everything happened too fast. Don’t worry, we promise you’ll get them as soon as I get back and RUBYASSATA is whole again!

This move wouldn’t have been possible without my amazing freaker moving team. We barely had room in the uhaul for all my crap.

It doesn’t help that I inherited a lot of things from my parents, like this kick ass 1980’s stereo. Who wants to listen to records?

It was so hard. Old chucks. . . gone.

While in Missouri I’m gong to do drawings in my new personalized field notes memo book and post them on the blog. (Hopefully I’ll have the internet)

I just wanted to remind you that FREAKER USA only has 17 days left on their kickstarter project. They are great friends of ours making a cool and practical good in the USA. Give and share. Give and share.Give and share.Give and share.Give and share.

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!!!)

MoUNTaiNS of ThANKS ! ! !

RUBYASSATA is buried deep in thank you cards and packages. Coming to a mailbox or porch near you…

Getting organized.

A special gift for Jessie. Have you seen her jewelry ? You probably should..

Courtney is good at drawing unicorns…

This is just the beginning…
