How was everyone’s christmas break? Mine was awesome, I finally got to have my very first white Christmas and it was such a nice change fromt he mid 70s weather I usually experience during the holidays. This year I really tried to buy mostly handmade gifts for my loved ones since it’s so much better for the economy and there’s just such a nice feeling that comes with receiving a personalized handmade item that doesn’t compare to something store bought. For my newest little niece I purchased a handmade doll knit by Grace over at Done by Digits. I even had the pleasure of meeting Grace personally at Patchwork when the show came to Long Beach. As soon as I came over to her booth I fell in love with the lovely dolls she makes an knew I had to order one. And so Grace was nice enough to help me create an adorably ethnic little doll for baby Bella. Isn’t she just adorable?

So I have this beautiful linen sketchbook and it’s completely blank and in the nicest white linen stock. I love it but I’ve been thinking I want to do something really special to personalize it a bit more. I’ve also been coming across a lot of beautiful embroidery work lately and the two thoughts intersected and now I really want to embroider this sketchbook.
How can you not want to try it with all the lovely inspirations out there for this kind of project? Wish me luck because I will probably cry if I mess up my lovely sketchbook. Ok. Not really.
I really dig the style, the illustrations on these screenprinted tees is so detailed and fun and whimsical and just awesome. They’re so different than what you normally see on tees that I just had to feature them. And I found out that they’ve been a featured seller on etsy before too! The interview is over a year old so I guess I’m a little late to the party on this one but oh well.
Yayyyy!! Unique LA is having a Mini Market event this weekend, I love Unique LA. Their events are a great way to see/experience/purchase local crafters/artists seling their wares. Which are things that so good for the community! I love Unique LA events and all the fun things that go on around them. It’s awesome and if you haven’t gone to one, go to this one! Good times will be had by all, including me! Woohoooo! This weekend’s event will be held at Space 1520. Space 1520, also super cool, went there this past Sunday for Bike Day LA. And although my biking skills are far off from the others who attended this event it was still really awesome.
Anywho, back to Unique LA, the event will feature DJ sets, awesome deals on handmade local items, and drinks! What could be bad about that? Go there, partake, enjoy!

What if said penguins also were I dunno maybe personalized and had cute little props and were carefully handmade by an equally lovely former classmate of mine? Even cuter I think!
