New banners are in the shop! They are already selling pretty well, I wasn’t even able to get a screenshot for this post before the “sold out” flags showed up. You guys don’t understand just how happy that makes me!!! Thank you!
There are more colors then I’ve shown above, they just wouldn’t all fit on one page. As of this post I believe there is 13 colors left.
To go along with the update, there is also a Juxtapose Necklace sale going on. 15% off any Juxtapose Necklace in stock. No coupon code needed, discount applied in the cart. (how neat is that? Storenvy does it right)
I’m going to be good and walk away from the computer for a bit. A watched shop doesn’t boil, or something like that. Ha. I have some things I want to make for my niece’s 5th birthday tomorrow anyway.
I hope everyone has a great weekend!!!
I am super excited about the shop update I’m working on for tomorrow!! I kinda posted a peek at these last week, and then I spent all of this week cleaning them up and getting them ready (it’s one of a hundred reasons I’ve been so quiet)
My plan is to have 18 different colors of the plastic version, plus a screen printed gold & cream felt version in the shop around 11am EST. It’s first come first serve. If these do well, I have a few ideas for more (plus I’m open to suggestions!)
If you want to be notified when they go live you can sign up for my shop newsletter here, or keep an eye on my Instagram or Twitter accounts! (I’m having a giveaway on my Instagram account if your interested btw)
Ive had this idea in my head lately to try and make more pieces for the home, instead of the body. It might have something to do with cabin fever or the fact that I always feel like changing things up a bit in winter, but whatever the reason, I’m excited.
The first piece I’ve tested out is shown above. They are hand cast plastic “Home Sweet Home” banners. Hopefully the first in a series I’ve been dreaming up. I want a full range of colors before I add them to the shop, so it might be a week or two before I get proper photos.
What are your thoughts? Any colors I NEED to make?
Modcloth does this thing called “Make the Cut” every so often, where they open up submissions for a new clothing design to be sold on their website. This time around they did something a bit different. They provided a template of an existing dress and asked for fabric designs for the said dress. The illustration above was my first submission.
You had the option to submit five designs total and I figured “why not!”. I really liked the way they came out, so I also wanted to share them here. Submissions are closed and they won’t announce the 10 semi-finalist until March 3rd. I’m still on a mission to make most of my own clothes, so I figured no matter what I can use these sketchups as inspiration for my own dresses.
Last night I came up with this design using my Daily Uniform fabric mixed in with some dark gray stripes. I’m thinking of sewing it up using a skater dress style pattern and some knit interlock fabric. For fun I used the Modcloth template to see how it would look first! I think this one is getting moved up the “to do list”, I really do love me some striped dresses!
…From Batman & Robin!
I hope the week has been a great adventure that surpasses the one these guys had (though motorcycling cross-country on a batcycle seems pretty adventurous, so it might be hard to compete).
I have decided to spend the day rewatching Ugly Betty and drawing objects from my kitchen. So far I’m having a perfectly calm day. Though I can’t wait for tomorrow when the rest of my supplies get here and I can start casting a new piece I’ve been thinking about.
I haven’t been feeling my best lately, so I have been trying to find something to do with my time that doesn’t require a lot of moving around. One of the things I found I could do was go through all of the boxes of discontinued Art School Dropout goods I have stashed away and put them up for sale. I would rather sell them at a much lower price and send them off to a new home, then have them sit around in storage forever where no one can enjoy them.
I decided to initially keep the sale separated in an Instagram shop. Somewhere where I could just snap the photos quickly and upload them with out a whole bunch of work. I’d add them every Tuesday and Friday morning before CT woke up and then go about my day. This system has worked out perfectly so far and I’ve cleaned out a small chunk of pieces, but I realize not everyone who may want these pieces uses instagram. Which made me think that if something is still available after three sales I can just delete it on Instagram and add it to the SALE section of my shop. I will probably do this with pieces I have a large quantity of and some loose pieces too.
You can see all the pieces I’ve added so far HERE.
