GlitterPony in the City Reliquary

Just finished my first order of Rugs for The City Reliquary here in Williamsburg. They are remodeling this wonderful museum and reopening with a gift shop! These GlitterPony Doily Rugs will be part of the new collection. So exciting. Delivering them later today on my way to the clothing swap! I even baked inside out Smore brownies to enjoy, what a great day!

And I'm off to DC tomorrow for my boyfriends opening for Porch Projects DC!

Listing new necklaces!

I've finally listed the new necklaces using the photos from our photo shoot in the park.

I think these pieces with the plastic lacing incorporated are really special. I have since been working on some pieces that focus on the thread element and exploring designs in different color combinations. Some cool looking pieces . Pictures soon!

New Year, New Ideas, Need Follow Thru

Two weeks into the new year and I am feeling like I need to create.... something. Baking isn't really cutting it right now. I need to refocus my time and energy and get back on track. Too many distractions. I want this year to be about productivity and success.

One of my new year resolutions was to pick up and put away clothing everynight before bed so I can start with a fresh slate in the morning. I have been pretty good about this and it is helping me feel good about my space and my surroundings. I think my boyfriend appreciates it too.

After spending the whole month of December in Florida with family, and then returning immediatley to a full time position and commute, I have not quite settled back in yet.

So this is my promise to myself, the month of February will be my mulligan start to the new year. I will retrieve the supplies I have left waiting for me in Florida, and gather my things in New York... and get to it.

I have so many ideas, I just need to focus and follow through.

This post is meant to inspire me to action, I'll let you kno whow it works.

I have this lonely looking basket of wearable pieces that I have completed over the Summer and haven't listed yet. My problem is photographing them. The mannequins and forms I have aren't in the best condition... or I made them look creepy because I have covered them in yarn circles and left it unfinished. Anyways, I came up with this great idea to invite some girlfriends over for a photoshoot party! I am gonna get some wine and candy and we can play with makeup and hair. I think it will be really fun and a great way to showcase these pieces.

I am really starting to understand how essential the photos you present are to communicating what your work is really like. Its an artform I really didnt give enough thought to until recently. Eye opening. I've always admired great photos and and I guess I never really stopped to think about what made them great photos.

I tried taking pictures of the head warmers and scarves and they just looks so flat and sad laying on a table, I wouldn't even want them! So wish me luck, hopefully after the spooky dust of halloween settles I can find some time to get my beautiful friends together for this photo shoot! Pictures to come soon!

Plastic Doilies!

One of the things I like most about creating doilies is the different textures and fabrics that result in completely unique pieces. Do you remember making lanyards and key chains as a kid using gimp, that plastic lace that comes in every color imaginable. Rexlace. Amazing!

I purchased a bunch of different colors and got to work.

I really like the color change pattern. I made up that pattern as I went and I think it came out pretty cool. I will take some more shots tomorrow.
