Holiday Pop-up Shop 11.12.2014

We are SOOO excited to kick off the holiday season with a little Pop-up shop in our own studio! We got to thinking it would be fun to pull together a few of our favorite local Kansas City makers to have a little shopping event, and before we knew it, we had what we think is a pretty killer group assembled. There are home goods, fine art prints, jewelry, leather goods, T-shirts, women’s wear, ceramics, accessories, and the list goes on and on! Plus, we will even have a fun Photo Booth by the talented One Sparrow Creative to capture some memories of the night! There will be some snacks and drinks to get you in the shopping mood, and what’s better than getting some shopping done early before madness of the holidays truly begins! We hope you can join us! Here’s a look at the fabulous vendors who will be there (scroll down for links to their websites):

1. Happy Habitat // 2. Jaime Rovenstine // 3. Janesko // 4. Prairie Goods // 5. Ampersand Design Studio // 6. Nickel & Suede // 7. Convivial Production // 8. Ocean and Sea // 9. Maddy Nash // 10. Alicia Janesko

 

shh! sneak peek of our new fabric collection! 11.11.2014

Ok, so we just received these strike-offs of our newest fabric collection with Windham Fabrics in the mail! EEKS–we’re totally loving in. We have to admit, we didn’t even know it was possible for metallic gold to print on fabric so well….but we are here to say, it looks amazing! This collection is called Bold & Gold and it will be available in Decemeber 2014!

We are dreaming up all kinds of projects already. Pillows, clutches, covering a few chairs, laptop cases….and we love the idea of fabric-backed bookshelves that our friend, Monica suggested! What do YOU want to make with Bold & Gold?

Of course…lots more to share soon!

Package Design for Land of Nod 11.05.2014

YOU GUYS!!!! We are totally stoked to share this super-fun project we did with The Land of Nod!! YES, they are a dream client of ours. YES we are like their number one fan (and customer). YES we totally freaked out when we got asked to collaborate with them on this! So, we were asked to redesign their packaging including shipping boxes and in-store bags!!! (Dream job!) We partnered with them to create a few custom patterns, new logo treatment and a really awesome color palette, and here we are! What’s better than pattern-covered boxes with a surprise pop of color on the inside?!! So…Whatcha think?!!

  1. Arleene Taylor

    So, So good! Can I be next please? I just love it :)
