Bon Weekend – Seriously awesome dyed eggs

I’m always a sucker for new and interesting egg dyeing ideas/techniques and Aunt Peaches has delivered the GOLD! This is so going on my ‘need to do’ list.

Have a safe and fabulous weekend!

A post of a different color

Happy Monday! I don’t normally do posts like this but as this is something of particular interest to me, I am going to try to pique your interest. I am passionate about corsets. I am even more passionate about well made corsets. I would love to take on local clients and create works of art for them.

Alexis Black of Electra Designs Corsetry has a Kickstarter page going to raise funds to create a collection of educational materials for corset making. I first became an admirer of Alexis’ work in 2005 when our friend Ingrid Houwers received her gorgeous bespoke peridot green silk corset. I’ve watched through the years as Alexis has continually raised the bar with her technique. She has been very giving to the corset making/sewing community, and I’ve benefitted not only from her knowledge but also from group ribbon and twill tape orders

Making every corset is a learning experience. Now we have an opportunity to benefit from her years of experience and knowledge. So, if you or anyone you know has ever been interested in corsetry, please take a moment to watch the video, read the updates, pledge, share and help make this possible for all of us! The pledge drive ends this Friday!

You can see more of her incredible work on on Facebook.

Thank you!

A quickie post for today! A friend shared a photo of UK artist Heather Jansch‘s amazing driftwood horses and I had to pass the goodness and share them here!

Enjoy her work!

Happy Monday – Infected with more technology

I’ve had the Instagram app on my phone for a long time but have never used it. As I’ve become a little more active on Twitter I’ve noticed many people using it, so when a couple of my our friends came to visit this weekend and took some sweet shots via the app, I got hooked. Here are a couple of Michael’s studio.

We left the Samhain decorations up for them to see in person, and here’s one of Steph’s shots.

Oh yeah, this app is a keeper.

Lowcountry Artist Market

I am taking a Saturday off from the Farmers Market on November 19th to participate in the next Lowcountry Farmers Market at the Music Farm. You can like their Facebook page and RSVP for the event here. I’m looking forward to being with fellow Etsy artists.

I will have the accessories that I’ve been working on for a while now as well as introducing some new products. I am going keep those under wraps until closer to the show date. Speaking of new pieces, here are a few that I’ve uploaded to Etsy. More behind the cut. (more…)

November Sun Etsy Treasury

I almost forgot to share this! Etsy member Artesserae curated a new treasury featuring my octopus necklace. I absolutely adore the color palette in this collection.

Thank you so much!

New Etsy Treasury – The Descent II

I decided to make a follow up to last years ‘The Descent’ treasury. I discovered many gorgeous new pieces and also stumbled upon Boline Strand’s work, which is the first item featured. She has some amazing pieces on Etsy as well as her site, bolinestrand.com.

Other wonderful pomegranate goodies that I couldn’t fit into the treasury template after the jump… (more…)
