Reflections of a Sunny Day

While I was outside yesterday snapping some cool shots of my displays, I stumbled on a really fun thing to do with the window.

Me on one side, Dylan on the other, lots of super reflecty sunlight and there ya go: awesome photo opportunity. I just couldn't resist taking a thousandy pics. These are the best two. I have a feeling we'll be doing more.
Mr. Dylan is wearing his brand brand new Grand Whale shirt. It'll be making an appearance in his Etsy Shop shortly. Until then, you can see it here and envision how you'd look it in with tiny tiny legs and yellow pumps.

Display Project!

Task: Create some jewelry displays to showcase my rings and necklaces for two hip and local boutiques. One for Make, the hottest Dallas joint to pick up some killer handmade goods, and one for the Coffee Haus Downtown, my favorite and the cutest coffee house and boutique in the Arlington area.
Both displays were hand cut, sanded and painted by myself and my honey, Dylan. I designed them to showcase my designs in a way that was easy to view and fun to look at. Plus, gotta add a fun bright color into the mix! Love me some lime green!
Now I have a way to showcase my wooden rings, which kinda just sat around before!

This is a snap shot of my logo, which I hand painted in white. I think this part took the longest.

After one week on intensive labor, it turned out waaaaay better than I could even imagine. I'm so super happy with it.

If you get a chance, go check out Make and the Coffee Haus Downtown to see these beauties in person. I'll be setting them up this weekend! hoorah!

New Design for the Second Annual Jingle Bash

Here's your first peek at the new Jingle Bash poster artwork done by yours truly. being a part of Etsy Dallas is a pure treat. Not only do I get to meet Dallas's most talented artists and designers, but I also get to plan shows and design all the art for Etsy Dallas and the shows that they put on.
You can see more of my Etsy Dallas designs on the Etsy Dallas Flickr page.

Get ready for the 2nd Annual Jingle Bash! On November 21st from 1pm-7pm, Etsy Dallas, the original local craft collective, will offer up quality handmade goods from over 40 local artists, crafters, and designers - just in time for all your holiday shopping. In the spirit of supporting the local handmade movement, the Bash will be held at the Sons of Hermann Hall (3414 Elm St.) a local historic Dallas gem in the heart of Deep Ellum, just west of downtown. In addition to locally-crafted goods, the Bash will feature music, a full bar, free raffle, and free goody bags for the first 50 shoppers. Admission is free. While this show will be family-friendly, the vibe will be a fun, night-time holiday bash full of handmade love and good times. Think of it as a party - not your typical craft show!

A night at the Dark Carnival

We spent last night at the Dark Carnival at The Church/Lizzard Lounge in Deep Ellum. They had jugglers, people dancing on stilts, popcorn, cotton candy,fun dancy music and the list goes on.

I haven't been to the Church in years, so it was interesting to see the place still thriving and still the same, and yet different. They even have a new outdoor upstairs balcony that has a great view of downtown.

They've been putting on tons of themed events this year that are totally worth making the trip out there. Check out some of the upcoming fun here: www.thechurchdallas.com

I only snapped one pic last night, since I was so distracted by everything else that was going on. Our buddy Miss Tara to the T was all dressed up in her cute handmade corset dress, selling her killer vintage style accessories along with all the dark fun. I was able to snag a cute item from her shop, but I can't tell what it is because it's a gift, so shhhhh. :) But do take a trip on over to Tara's shop and check out her work. www.taratothet.etsy.com

Custom Order Fun!

In the past few weeks I delightfully had the pleasure of creating a few custom pieces for some very lovely people. I love any opportunity to create something new. It's especially fun when the requester says, "I trust you, make something pretty." Whoo hoo! how fun is that? I get to do whatever I want!!! So I went and had myself a good old time making some necklaces for a few special people.

These pictures aren't top notch, but it's all I had taken before these lovelies found their new homes.
This first one is for a dear friend who designs and makes all kinds of awesome handbags, wallets, zipper pouches and home decor. It was thrilling to make her a necklace that symbolized something close to her heart. You can see her lovely designs here: www.cutoutandcollect.etsy.comThe second was for another designer friend who has the cutest little baby named Ian. I wanted to make her one that reflected her style and represent her love for her son. She also sells jewlery online too. Check her out at: www.tefi.etsy.com
