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?

Hey guys, Happy Tuesday! It’s been a little rocky establishing a solid work schedule at the studio. I took much needed time off during the holidays, but the kiddies came down with the flu towards the end so they’ve been sick at home for the past 2 days. Luckily, I can adjust my schedule, and work from home when need be, but it definitely makes it harder to establish open hours for the boutique. So I want to take a minute to say Thank You to all my customers for bearing with me as the open hours schedule adjusts. I am working on some fun new items and can’t wait to get them in the shop for you. Meanwhile, you can always shop online or via instagram and I can email your invoice. Thank God for the mobile offices of today!!
Hey guys! This past Saturday was our first in-studio event and we had a blast! Over 30 of you showed up to support our very first Pop Up and it was so great to meet many of you in person for the first time! I can’t tell you how great it feels to meet the people in real life, that I spend so much time thinking about, designing and creating for in my head!! Lol. Anyway, the day was filled with light hors d’oeuvres, coffee, Christmas music and lots of laughter. Thank you to everyone who came out and for those who couldn’t make it, I look forward to seeing you at our next one! Catch the photo recap below . . . xx
