Lately I have been trying to make "green" changes to my life, and one of the most significant changes has been trying to conserve disposable materials. One of the coolest solutions I have found is to carry a tote bag with me when I leave the house to run errands or go to the grocery store. That way I dont have to collect tons of plastic bags at each stop. I can fill up my tote and when I get home everything is easily carried into the house!
I am very excited to announce that large Tote bags are finally available in my Shop! These have great long straps so everything is balanced well and you dont have and armpit full of bulky stuff! (I hate that!) They are 100% cotton canvas and are totally durable, and with 6 designs to choose from, pretty stylish if I do say so myself!
To help everyone get a little "Greener" I am offering free shipping on all tote bags now through June 17th. Simply enter the code "TOTE" in the message to seller box upon check out and wait for a revised invoice.

Today's IF theme is suit! Funny how the brain immediately goes to a mens 3 piece or business suit. I have been working on a series of vintage women in bathing suits at the beach, and it took a minute for me to change the direction of my thinking.
I think that is my favorite part of these IF exercises, the immediate thoughts that run into my head, and then the "and what else could it be" that I then go think about. One word carries so much initial thought. It is nice to stretch it and really sort of be creative with the theme. This is the part of school I kind of miss!
So here are the 3 ladies in their suits! I would rather be in this kind of suit, than the formal one! And that is saying A LOT! ;)

5280 MagazineI am so excited to finally get to share the Illustration that I did for 5280, a local magazine in Denver! The whole project was so fun and I was honored to be asked to create the art. If you are in the area, make sure you check out the mag. I just got my first issue, and it is awesome, even though I live in Los Angeles!
Thank you Alese!! This project was a dream! I LOVED working with you and am so delighted by the final printed article! xoxoxox

What a crazy weekend! As I mentioned in my post last week, this past weekend was the So Co Bazaar. It was a lovely afternoon overlooking the ocean! I met lots of awesome people, including my blog friend Christine Adolph, who I am with in the above photo! It was so awesome to finally get to meet her and her gorgeous family in person! She was so kind and sweet! Thank you Christine!!!
Monday was the Little Monster Market at the Sunnyside Pre-School in Studio City, CA. We (for anyone who doesn't know, I often share a booth with HannahMade) re-configured our booth for this one, and the change was really nice.
As you can see, Hannah liked it too! LOL
We met some amazing creators and I can't wait for Felt Club, as many of them will be there too!
Hannah and I really enjoy doing the craft fairs together and are thinking of venturing beyond the borders of LA. Do you have a favorite craft fair where you are? If so, please leave a comment with the name, and you never know, we may just be coming to a town near you!
