so, i'm freaking. it seems my hands cannot sew yo-yos fast enough. the fascinators are a hit. since nicole's post, i've sold a bunch of necklaces. and renegade is this weekend. i'm kinda screwed, yo. in the best possible way.

i made these new simple necklaces that i adore. i especially love this blus silk one!

so tired...

we went from shawn's grandpa's funeral to renegade prep to extreme etsy sales. i feel like we haven't had a break. when i go to bed, i'm thinking about everything i did that day and what i'll need to do the second i get out of bed... i'm making yo-yos, packaing orders, taking pics, answering convos... at some point i'll need to a) have a good cry for grandpa sam and b) plan for chanukah and christmas. because oh, that's right, its december 10 and i haven't given that much consideration. at all.

if i disappear for a bit, that's why...

of all the pretty things i've ever made, this may be my favorite. a fascinator made with silver sakura brocade. so fancy. so shiny.

this scarf is amazing. i'm seriously considering making it mine.

how do you make an already beloved item even better. add monkeys and mushrooms.yup.

these new earrings by miss kateri. i've now seen them in person and oh me, oh my! they are amazing.

the new black


i went to check the pantone spring 2009 color report and discovered that they've declared 2009 the year of mimosa. i'm down with that. its bright. its happy. i think yoyos will look awfully pretty in mimosa.
