Shop Update: A Week Long Flash Sale

Shop Update: A Week Long Flash Sale {an Art School Dropout's life}Flash Sale Time!!! I have put up all of the extra Letters and Hexagons that I cast these past two weeks up in my main shop for ONE WEEK ONLY! 

Most of the listings are set up to be customized in some way or another. This was the reason I couldn’t do this on Instagram and had to open up my StoreEnvy shop again. It will help keep things organized a bit!

I’ve also added a few pre-made earrings, necklaces and a banner or two.

The sale will end Thursday, May 21st at midnight. At that point I will close up shop and start working on all the orders. I wont reopen the shop until the next sale. This way I can ship everything in a timely manner and still fulfill my contractual obligations I have.

All proceeds from this sale are going to help me take care of monthly payments on a long arm sewing machine, something I’m hoping to purchase very soon. The machine will help me turn out quilts faster, and allow me to experiment more with the actual quilting process. Then maybe after a year of practice, I can start taking on others quilts! It’s an exciting venture, and I just want to be ready. So expect a few of these flash sales within the next few months.

Shop Update: Custom Letter Charms & Hexie Necklaces

Shop Update: Custom Letter Charms & Hexie Necklaces {an Art School Dropout's life} Shop Update: Custom Letter Charms & Hexie Necklaces {an Art School Dropout's life}I decided a few months back that I still really love casting plastic, like a lot! I have started setting up custom listing in my Etsy shop so when I do cast, I’m only casting what customer like, not just what I feel like making in hopes other will like it all.

So, if you have ever wanted a custom Hexagon or Quilt Block Necklace, or maybe a set of charms that spell out something awesome or ridiculous, then now is the time. I’m casting all week!!!

Adventures in Casting: Quilty Necklaces

IN about 10 days I will be boarding a plane all by myself, and flying to Austin, TX for this years QuiltCon. The last two years I did BlytheCon (I STILL need to blog about that experience), and this year I decided to mix it up a bit and go the quilt route.

Adventures in Casting: Quilty Necklaces {an Art School Dropout's life} #quilt #necklkace #patchwork #jewelry

I had this brilliant idea to pull out some of my old molds and make a few quilt inspired necklaces for myself, my hotel roomie and a handful of friends. I posted a teaser on Instagram and they were a big hit. So of course I went overboard as usual and cast a bunch more!!

Shop Update: Three Baby Quilts

muted_hexagon_quilt_mintgraytan_006_550I’ve been making baby quilts lately as a form of therapy and as skill building exercises. The size is perfect because one yard of fabric fits on the back and I can sandwich everything together on my work table. However my little one is starting to outgrow this size and I really have no use for a stack of baby quilts. Soooo I added them to the shop!

I priced them according to quilts similar in quality and design that I’ve seen online. I don’t plan on taking custom requests and won’t update quilts non stop, but it’s nice to know that if I have an idea I can test it out and it may end up finding a new home one day, not just sit on my shelf and get dusty.

$195.00  Hexagon Baby Quilt - Mint, Gray, Tan & White {an Art School dropout's life}The first three quilts that I added are all completely different. Both in color and design. There is the light muted tone hexagon quilt above
