What I've Been Working On

These box necklaces aren't up on my website yet, but I've already sold a couple of them at shows. The first one took me about 9 hours to make. Since then, I've got it down to about 2-3 hours. Still need to get faster! Next up, a matching ring? Still unnamed.... suggestions welcome!

Astoria, 27th Ave

A tree growing right through this little shop! I peeked inside and saw the trunk inside the building. They just cut a hole in the ceiling and patched the roof up around the trunk. LOVE IT!

My Kind of Town

A picture perfect weekend in Chicago. Who knew the beachfront was so freaking gorgeous? Or that it would be a 30-second walk from the friend's condo I was crashing at?

On Division St, in front of a Polish Bar. My Polish friend had been teasing me about having gone to Zakopane, Poland. So we had to take this pic.

At Renegade. Another cloudless, gorgeous day. Elsie Q and I were rejoicing over the weather and having a great time chatting with shoppers.

My display got a bit of a facelift: I covered my neck displays in cool textured paper and coated them in modge podge. And it worked! The displays definitely looked much nicer and more unique.

For Real?

So I had to walk through a residential neighborhood to get to a hiking trailhead. And I passed this house.

And the stuffed animals sitting around the table were definitely not the work of some cute little kiddie engaged in a jumbo version of tea party. No, those things were part of the decor!
