studio time and a sneak peak...

so after work today i had a night in the studio. i didn't really get all that much done, but i did organize a lot, and updated the shop. i've slowly been trying to find new homes for all of my things in the new studio space, and its slowly coming along. i'm also figuring out some new work for the spring, working with a new, more cohesive colourway, and adding in a few new prints. i also have lots of show applications in progress, and i have an exciting new project that i'm working with a shop on (i'll tell ya more about that soon!).

and heres a sneak peak, (don't judge the mess!) of my new space. with my new print table in the process of being built. i've been working with a printing table that was about 4'x4' (you can kinda see it sitting there, its the actual table top), and my boyfriend and i are in the process of making a new table, thats going to be 4'x11'!! i'm so excited for more space!! i'll show you more photos as the studio gets more pulled together! ohh and don't forget to check out sale in the shop, it will only be up like this for another week or so!

made at home: chocolate peanut butter cups...

so last week it was my anniversary (4 years!) with my boyfriend, and i made him these tasty treats! i've never made them before, but followed a fairly simple recipe, and they turned out really well. i will defiantly make them again, who doesn't love chocolate and peanut butter?!

studio sale!!

it's time to make some room in my studio for the SS12 collection! i've been busy designing and working on new items for this spring, and i need to make some room and get rid of some stock from the fall. so its your chance to pick up one of my pieces at a very reasonable rate!!! check it out.

made at home: chili...

so i've been trying to cook new meals more often, and trying to keep track of what i'm eating. chili is one of those things that if i forget to take a lunch to work i usually end up buying, so i decided to try and make some instead! last night i found a few things in the pantry and a few items that i specifically bought to cook with, and made some chili. and it turned out pretty tasty! and it made quite a lot, so now i've got lots of lunches to take with me!
