Cactus Window

I created the window installation for the new Rare Device store in Noe Valley! I had the idea of filling it with decorative cactus pinatas. Here’s a peak at the window, but please check out the full post here!

I was beyond thrilled when photographer, Sarah Deragon, took some up-close photos of my window cacti. I wanted to share some of my favorites (so hard to choose!) to show some more detailed shots of what’s hanging in the Rare Device//Noe Valley window!

Lately

It’s been so quiet on here, eek.

I’ve been really enjoying my new job. Not only is it just a wonderful work environment, but it’s also allowed me to learn so much about wholesale and product-based branding. I feel very right-time/right-place, right now.

Here’s a few snaps of what’s been going on here:

Roos and I finally took the plunge and bought a fancy epson printer! I love it! I can’t wait to stock-up on beautiful printing paper. // I got my flower crown pug and teacups screen printed by the amazing ALL GOLD // My job is the best!! Thank you ZELMA ROSE for packaging my cross-stitch heart necklace SO beautifully (and thank you Kehau for the dreamy-lit photo!) // I played with a lot of crystal/geode pattern ideas. I’m sure we’ll see more of these… // I’m embroidering beautiful sounding words onto watercolor paper. Super excited about this, but it’s pretty slow. This is a snippet of the word “Susurrus” // A tiny fair I did at the end of March. Looking at my fellow crafty girls, GREEN HORSE CRAFT and FIBER FLORIST, I need to step up my table decoration! // Happy Mother’s Day Mom!

Etsy love: Spring Dream

April is here! Considering my rampant love for everything floral, Spring is totally my season! Here’s some lovely spring things I’ve found while perusing etsy lately:

This sweet painting is the prettiest /// I need vintage botanical prints everywhere please!

Holiday Craft Fair

Oh man, this week has been crazy busy! But also productive, and that’s always the best. This past Saturday I participated in the CCA Holiday Craft Fair with my good friend and crafty soul mate, Mary.

I sold my flower crowns and some hand-stitched fox ornaments. Mary sold her beautiful crochet work and some cute Star Wars ornaments. We shared a table and it was super colorful and adorable! I’m really happy with how it went! This was my first time selling at CCA (did I mention I’m an alumni?) and I had a great time. I met some really lovely people, fellow crafters especially! Here are some pictures from the fair!

I was nervous that my flower crowns might be too summery for this fair, but they sold pretty well! Though I did intentionally only bring my red, black, and gold ones. Can’t get too flower child!

I had stayed up really late the night before and had some pre-fair antsyness going on, so Roos was sweet enough to buy me a mimosa while I did some last minute stitching! The sweetest! Best way to start a craft fair day!

Balcony Garden

I love hanging out with crafty friends! Mary is a crazy talented artist who is heavily focused on crochet work. I hope to share some of these creations soon, but I’d like to introduce a part of her home first. I love seeing creative spaces and how other artists nest. I have never been that great at nesting (it took me a whole year to actually put anything interesting up on my walls) but Mary has always been so good at it!! This girl has SO much stuff, and they’re all amazing! I spend so much time going over her countless vintage knick-knacks, thrifted art collection, family photographs, and her own handmade work. Mary recently moved to a new place with her boyfriend and her balcony has become the new home for her succulents! I had to take several photos.
