It seems I have a pattern of bursts of posts to nothing for weeks, I am going to try and work on that! Well this past month things have slowed down, I had finished art shows at least for a time. I decided to take a mini-vacation and just lay off work for a bit and re-boot for the upcoming holiday season. With the arrival of fall I feel the holiday spirit coming!
(1) my feet in the fall leaves- love the red, orange + yellow
(2) pile of new hand dyed scarves- get them here
(3) trays of jewelry awaiting photography - I am trying some new things, stay tuned
(4) orange leaves & blue sky
(5) my new marbled mouse pad- had it custom made via Vista
(6) jack munching on snacks in the yard- festive pumpkins to be made into soup

Starting out the week with a bag + a whole lot of COFFEE!
From wedding planning and a huge interior design job (with a Thanks Giving deadline) to keeping up with online sales and getting ready for the up coming holiday art show season, I am feeling a bit over whelmed...
I am the first to admit that I am kind of a control freak and I like to be able to get things done with out help, but I am calling in the reserves. I have to say I am excited about meeting with a wedding planner to see if I can afford to have a little weight taken off my shoulders. Fingers Crossed!

Working with metal has opened up a whole new world for me and is allowing me to do a lot more customized pieces with inscriptions and personalized notes.
I love the idea of something so custom and thoughtful as a gift, I can only imagine the look on the receivers' face! I love being able to help someone give something so special.
Check out the Shop for inspiration and send me a convo if you need something customized.

Hand dying was such a fantastic and fun experiment for me this summer.
I played around with RIT, acid dyes and bleach, the end result, this tote bag line for fall!
These bags are a collection of new and reclaimed materials, mixed with
new genuine leather strap handles, rivet & stud details with cream cotton lining.
