2010 EMC Charm Swap

 I just realized that I mentioned the 2010 Etsy Metal Clay Charm Swap but never followed up!

Above is a picture of the copper charms that I contributed to this year's swap. And here is the finished bracelet with all the charms that were included:
Such lovely stuff! It's always nice to see all the different ways a certain material can be used, and this just proves how much talent is contained in this little group of metal clay artisans.

New Dress a Day

Day 259
Day 253

Have you been to New Dress a Day yet? Inspired by the movie Julie & Julia, this blogger decided to shun traditional shopping for 1 year and instead dedicate her time to this little project: 365 Days, 365 Dollars and a new dress made from a vintage clothing item every single day! Some of the things she has made are pretty amazing! I'm definitely inspired to get out my sewing machine again.

I went to the free Big Boi show in Miami last night. Best. Show. EVER! Enjoy the recorded version above!


Face Me

We're back! After a great, not-so-relaxing vacation (I mean that in the best way possible), the store has been re-opened and re-stocked and we are ready for business!

I have a few new ideas in the works, but it's been a pretty slow process getting back into the swing-of-things. Hopefully the inspiration will come soon!

In the meantime, enjoy these face collages by Justine Khamara, pretty amazing!
