New Shop & New Juxtapose Necklaces

newshop_001The new Art School Dropout shop went live this morning! I am super happy with the way it came out. It’s simple and I love the way it showcases the products. What do you think?


I’m even happier with the new Juxtapose Collection that went live along with the shop. I talked about it a bit last week, the series I’m calling the “Dark Collection”.

Vending at BlytheCon 2014: Seattle…

BlytheCon VendingI found out this past weekend that I will be a vendor at BlytheCon Seattle! It’s August 2nd, 2014 at the Seattle Center’s Fisher Pavilion. I am excited, it will be my first time selling the eye chips in person, plus I have plans for some new products.

My little sister Cori is most likely coming with me, and it will be our first time visit the Pacific Northwest. So if theres anything you think we should check out in Seattle, and possibly Portland, let me know!!! Also if you will be attending, I’d love to know about that too.

Sneak Peek: Juxtapose Necklaces – The Dark Series

comingsoon_juxtapose_012214I’ve been thinking of bringing back my Juxtapose Necklaces for awhile now. Last year I made a few, but there were very limited colors and styles. This year I decided to go all out and make every color and style! I didn’t want to overwhelm all of you though, so I will be adding them to the shop in series. The first series will all be made using black enameled wire and chain. I have decided to call it “the Dark Series”. The name makes me giggle a little, but I think it fits.

I’m hoping to release the first series of necklaces within the next few days. There will be around 15 of them, unless I decide to make more. Even though they are all different colors and sizes, I tried to keep the look of each one the same. I did this purely because I’m really into the idea of collections right now.

If your not into the dark nature of these, but love Juxtapose Necklaces, the next series will be much lighter and airier looking! Then the series after that will be brighter and more saturated. Something for everyone!!!

Win This Papercut Dachshund!

dachshund_giveaway_001 dachshund_giveaway_002About a month ago I bought a new toy, a crafting toy to be exact! It’s a Silhouette Portrait and it is seriously my new favorite tool. I never really messed around with paper crafts before, and I’m not a scrapbooker, but I thought I could still find a use for it. Well, I found loads of uses actually and can’t wait to share them all with you guys.

You’re probably wondering now what this has to do with the “WIN THIS” flag above, well I made the above paper cut using my machine and one of my animal doodles I mentioned on Monday. I made it purely to see if I COULD. I love experimenting and testing my limits, and this was one of the outcomes. I want to make some many more too!!!

I love the print, but I don’t own a Dachshund and I felt like there might be someone out there who loves them more and would like a likeness on their walls! So here goes…

If you love wiener dogs, paper cut pieces or this piece just “speaks to you” (hahaha) then you can enter to win by just leaving a comment below. The comment can say anything. You can tell me about your day, what your favorite food is, what you think I should make next, or whatever else is on your mind! Please keep it nice and clean though, I guess thats the only rule. The print measures a total of 8.5″x11″, that includes the chipboard I mounted it to. You have until next Wednesday night to enter (January 22nd at midnight EST) , and I’ll choose a winner the next day!!

Entries are closed for this giveaway!


The winner is comment #3, Katie T.

I’ve contacted Katie, but if she doesn’t get back to me, then i will choose a second winner!!
