erin and i had a huge training session about our website. there are so many little things to learn... it's actually really fun! i'm excited to use all my "new tricks". yay.
in addition, i picked up all our new vinyl from the vinyl fruit world headquarters. :)
it's so exciting! we have nine brand new stickers (gonna add them to the shop tomorrow!) and some restocks of old favorites. here are a couple quick pics i took... i can never wait to share the new stuff.
(these are just snap shots... proper photos comin' soon)
eeeek! cute little skeleton vinyl in black and white!
(perfect size for the back on an iPhone too)
camera vinyl in red, pink & black!
and a cute little mustache in black & pink! i am tempted to put these on every single thing.... seriously. mugs, bowls, mirrors... so many cute ideas. this one is on a journal.
there are more, but i'll wait till tomorrow to share!
he! thanks for letting me share my little happiness with you. new designs make me so excited.
K... quick reminder, check out my July sponsors before the month is over (i know! another month already... this year is flying!). Their shops are lovely & I'm so honored that they support my blog.
also... i wanted to show you the finished inside of this vintage photo album. i think the colors are really pretty.
fun. well, i'm drawing all night tonight.... i hope your day was full of magic.
i finished my bag two nights ago while having a (quite long) phone conversation with Leigh-Ann. it was lots of fun to stitch, but my fingers were a little sore when i was done. :) i think i love stitching with yarn even more than traditional embroidery... more experimenting to do! & maybe even mixing the two? yes. i'll be carrying this bag for a long time, i love it so much!
here's a detail shot...
the design was inspired by the always classy Orla Kiely.
i'll post more later, but i couldn't wait to share these photos!
the other night miss rachel heard i wasn't feeling well and brought me some chamomile tea and gummy worms...
what kind of a combination is that?
a perfect one.
well, i'm feeling better & now that our update is up i am spending a couple days working on new designs and catching up (finally gonna make some tattoo designs. yay!). i'm actually wanting to get started on my tattoos again too... maybe this month?
and this closet is SO beautiful. oh my goodness. in love.
tonight i am stitching a new vintage purse (for myself) that sort of resembles this bag i stitched last year...
it's Orla inspired.... this time i am stitching with yarn. i loved that bag SO much, but the strap broke (like 3 times) so i'm making a new one. :) feeling happy to do something of the 'just for fun' variety this evening! i need these kinds of projects to keep the hobby aspect of my work alive... it's so important!
i am super excited to make a bunch of projects with it this week... i already got started on a mini album for Polaroids! (i'll post tutorial details soon, so you can make one too!)
(ha! this photo of Jeremy is totally funnnny. i love it.)
here are a few new paintings...
i also, finally, posted a few pairs of my XO hand painted sunglasses.
and we are introducing a new section to the site fashion. i'll tell you more about it soon, but here are a few of my favorite pieces....
here are the special deals for the week.... all orders $75 or more get a free bird clip (modeled here by the cute little miss Christie (listen to her new song it's wonderful) and a surprise vinyl sticker (a brand new one!).
Well... good morning everyone! i think i'm gonna go to bed. :)
PS. special thank you*s to Jeremy, my mom and dad and Rachel for taking such good care of me this weekend... i'm so lucky to have you. and thank you for all of the get-well-wishes. really.
