Inventory So Far

So far, so good. I’ve been plugging away with all my craftiness for the race. Here’s my inventory thus far:

Tissue pom poms. Fun to hang around the house. Colors: blue, green, beige, pink and white (2 of each color)

Scarves and cuffs handmade out of recycled materials.

Pink reusable canvas totes. Handstitched applique and fabric painted.

Tangerine reusable canvas totes. Handstitched applique and stamped.

Framed art made of refurbished frames. Varying sizes.

Baby T’s for 24 months. Handstitched appliqué and fabric painted & stamped.

Precious baby onuses. 24 months. Handstitched appliqué and fabric painted & stamped.

Wowsa! It’s been quite a few long days but all very well worth it. The countdown begins. 11 days until the race!

PS- I am not listing anything on Esty until after the race.

Scarves & Frames

So I’ve been a craft monster for the last 2 days. Check out what I’ve done.

All my scarves and cuffs are upcycled. They are made from clothes and bags.

9 scarves, 5 cuffs, 4 framed art pieces in 2 days. Neck hurts, finger is pounding, eyes are cross-eyed but heart is very satisfied and happy.

Big thanks for Lacey, my gorgeous model, whom I have the luxury of calling a friend! Love ya girl.

Handmade Greeting Cards

So I am going to be a part of trunk show at the studio where I teach yoga called One to One Health. The last sale I did was the Artisan’s sale and as much as I loved what I produced, having bulky furniture to transport around is not fun, so I’m thinking of keeping it smaller scale. I’m thinking more pillows, maybe some t-shirts, a small table or 2 and I have been getting really into the handmade greeting cards. Pretty fitting for the holiday season. Of course before I start any project, I need to get inspiration.

I love these corky greeting cards. Look at the hand stitching on the bottom left robot. Do you know that I love robots?! They remind me of my brother, I don’t know why.

Here are some 3 dimensional greeting cards. Lohuve the birds on the top left <3

I will for sure get some recycled cards like these cardboard looking cards.

And the dandelions are my favorite, like one of my paintings. The snail and whale both have hand stitched trails! How cute is that?!

Alright let me know what you think since I have the time now to think of what I am doing and will take any requests or recommendations.
