Super Sneaky Collaboration Project!

Ok, so it's not entirely "super sneaky", otherwise I wouldn't be talking about it. But in order to pretend like I'm being sneaky I wont disclose in full detail what we're exactly doing.

As many of you may know, my boyfriend, Dylan of Dowdy Studio and I live, breathe and make art all day long. We honestly wouldn't know how to function without it. So when you're living in this state of mind you tend to hang out with other artists and designers that do the same thing. Only because no one else understands your constant babbling on and on of color combinations, paint preferences, design choices, fabric selection, etc etc. And when I say constant blabbing, i mean pretty constant. We do take a break every once in a while and blab about weather, current events, movies and other regular normal everyday stuff. Yah, so we're not entirely crazy.... just a little.

One friend in the indie design realm that we've grown very fond of is our friend Cheyne, from Cut Out and Collect. This girl can bring it when it comes to a needle and thread. She designs and creates handbags, wallets, and home decor using two hands, rare fabrics, an intense attention to detail, as well as a sense of humor.

So take Cut Out and Collect, Dowdy Studio and Pamela Michelle, and put us all in a room to hash out some amazing ideas and the creativity goes wild. We've come up with something so good, we just can't contain ourselves. We are truly excited to reveal the final project! So stay tuned!

This is a sneak peek into part of the collaboration. I've hand crafted 4 wooden buttons to be a part of something (or somethings) that I can't tell you about......yet!

These buttons are all hand carved in wood and painted by me. The illustrations are original designs, and these buttons can never be reproduced exactly as you see them here.

I'm super duper pumped about this and I can't wait to spill my guts about it. So stay tuned for more!
