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

Alright party people, we have 36 days to go on kickstarter! We just wanted to let everyone know that we really appreciate the support and love we are getting for this project! PLEASE tell your friends about us and we will make them something amazing!

Another thing…we’ve decided to offer other rewards that aren’t listed on our Kickstarter page. If you can think of something that you would enjoy more PLEASE let us know! Alisha is super talented and could make anything you throw out.

For example, she’s has been making bowties as of late.

OR maybe you want a leather headband!

OR an awesome birthday banner?

OR personalized table linens! You name it, we can make it!

Thank you, Whitney, Ross, Benjamin Jones, David Guggenheim, Andrew Diroll-Black and Carol Roggemann for donating to our kickstarter this week! You rock!

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.
