I part of the planning team for Hope in the City Fashion Show and I did some research on dresses made out of paper for some ideas for the Fashion Show. The first dress is from Papier Couture, the next dress is made out of a phone book, third is from newspaper, isn't this just amazing. The last image was my favorite dress from the newspaper challenge on this season's project runway.
I participated in Craft Riot on Saturday in West Hollywood. I put more effort into my display this time and was really pleased with how my table looked. The craft fair wasn't has profitable as Patchwork in Long Beach but it was fun!

I've just updated my etsy store. Cleaned up some of my photos and added some new items. Hoping to do some good selling over the Holidays. I'm also trying to buy more handmade items for my friends and family this year. Really think there is nothing better than buying handmade goods and supporting local crafters. Pledge to buy more handmade items this year and go here to find out more/

Ok so its only November but as a crafter I have to start getting Holiday inspiration early so I can start designing some ideas.
I came across some of these letterpress cards and just had to share them with you. You can find them all here. I especially love the cupcake one!

Its pumpkin crazy here at the moment. I must admit we are not that crazy about pumpkins in Ireland so it was my first time to a pumpkin patch. It was fun! We went to Mr. Bones in West Hollywood and was surprised to see paparazzi at the entrance. We did however see Amy Adams while we were there!
Our good friends Jordan and Morgan Owen showed use how to crave pumpkins and we came up with 3 wonderful designs!

My friend Jason is in this band called Petty Crux and they asked me to help them out doing some set design for there live performances. I made 2 amp covers and backdrop on the piano of clouds and rain. They have an amazing website and I took inspiration from it. They recently played a gig in Dakota lounge in Santa Monica and I think they set design was effective.
This weeks daytrip with Kathlene and Tegan was to Culver City. We went to Royal T and were so surprised at how amazing and cool this place was. We got there in time to enjoy the Dine LA lunch special - delicious. The gift shop and gallery was Japanese art inspired loved it.
