Happy Saturday, guys. Hope you had a fantastic week. All week long I’ve been working on re-entry to real life after my belated-birthday-business-trip to Carmel last weekend. Re-entry has been a little bumpy by my standards. I came back super energized, excited and ready to push myself out of my comfort zone. But my TO DO list was major and trying to balance everything and fit it all in with homeschool has been a little challenging. Nevertheless, I know it will get done. I’m doing some “Spring Cleaning” in the shop and I’m having a special sale for my instagram followers, so if you aren’t following me on Insta click here and get in on the action. Sale will go live on Tuesday, when I get back in town. Yay!
In the meantime, be good to yourselves, Enjoy this weekend + make it a point to spend time doing something you love at some point before Monday rolls around again.

Hey guys! Can you believe it is already September??!!! Where did this summer go? So much has been going on in my camp, I don’t even know where the time has gone! My kids start school next Tuesday, and this year we have decided to homeschool them, so our family is in the midst of an exciting new experience.
Our booth at Unique Markets Summer Session @ Barker Hangar
My booth partner, Renee Hulett of The Silver Feather (an awesome jewelry line!) and I @ Unique LA
The Verdana 3-in-1 makes it’s debut @ Unique Summer ’17 Market . . .
Day two, chatting with other makers and creatives . . .
Two weeks ago I participated in the Unique Summer Market @ Barker Hangar in Santa Monica. It was a two day show for makers + designers that I’d been contemplating doing for a while. Before I had surgery this summer, my friend Renee approached me about getting a booth together. She has a wonderful jewelry line called The Silver Feather. You can check out her wares here. Doing shows are really out of my comfort zone, but seeing as I was facing a dire prognosis, I thought it would give me something to shoot for recovery-wise, so I agreed to participate. I’m so glad I did. It was definitely an experience that pushed me outside of my comfort zone, nonetheless, it was a really fun show. I was inspired to create a new style which we debuted for the show: The Verdana 3-in-1 waist pack/cross body/clutch is an exercise in fashion + function. It can be worn 3 different ways which allows for ultimate versatility. We sold out of the black + camoflauge colors at the show, and have since sold out of liquid gold. So I am opening up pre-orders for a new batch! I’ve added the styles to the website so click here to check them out and preorder one for yourself or a friend!

Are you guys ready for summer? This is the last week of school for my kiddies. I’ve been lying low, dealing with some health issues, + taking a break from social media among other things. I haven’t been able to get to the studio regularly so I’ve been working from home a lot. I posted the picture above to remind myself that dreams really do come true. For years I dreamt of having my own space to work from and I just realized that in a few short months I will have been at the studio for a year! It sounds crazy, I swear this has been the fastest year of my life! God is so good. I just have to give thanks.!!! Anyway, I’m excited about summer’s swift approach. I’m looking forward to our schedules relaxing a little as far as drop offs + pick ups go, and I’m excited about lazy summer evenings and beach sunsets. How about you? Do you have any trips planned? What are you looking forward to this summer?
Summer is here!! | The City Bruncher Coin Purse in Sage
I’ve been adding new items to the shop and have a few more fun things coming soon. One of my favorites is the City Bruncher Coin purse in Sage. The perfect color for summer, and the perfect size to grab + go!
Bringing sexy back . . .
Been working on new colors for the Bee Keyper fringe tassels/keychains. I love the movement + interest they create when used as handbag tassels. These tassels are a great way to add a dramatic edge to bags, especially when you choose a contrasting colored tassel or one with a metallic finished leather, like the Liquid Gold color above. What are some colors you would like to see the Bee Keyper available in for summer?
