Rainy Day Favorite Things

Happy Friday, folks!

I am inspired by the drizzle outside and a treasury of gifts that I curated on Etsy. Here are some of My Favorite Things, which are also gift ideas for the frosty month ahead.

I love this Vintage Copper Tea Kettle

Tea Time is one of the best times to nestle indoors with some warm tea my Kindle and a cozy blanket.

I just ordered some of these hand poured Soy candles with names like Sugar Plum and Blue Spruce, I couldn’t resist. Great wintry days spent indoors.

While I’m on my gift list.

Who would n’t like some yummy handmade marshmallows as a gift?

Check. and check.

Last but not least, I’ve spent some studio time that past few weeks perfecting the art of the hand stitched tea towel and experimenting with silk screening techniques. I promise more details and photos on how I made these on Monday! I am selling these as mix and match Sets of 2.

These projects were very much inspired by Lena Corwin’s book, Printing by Hand, which I devoured from cover to cover.

Now, I think I’ll pour myself some tea!

Have an inspired weekend everybody. xx

Woodland Round-Up!

This weekend in Los Angeles was a cozy one for me. The drizzle of the rain, a rarity, in sunny L.A. helped me to focus on taking creative photos inside my studio this weekend.

For my Etsy shop, I have been getting into the gift giving spirit, bookmarking all the great finds out there on Etsy and tailoring my collection for the holiday season. My goal this season is to hand make as many presents as I possibly can and support other hand made artists in the process.

These gift tags are in candy cane colors and are large enough to write a note on the bag of each card.

This next set of photos takes on a woodsy feeling. I love going up to the mountains near the edge of the city and camping in the summertime. These earrings, paintings, and pillow are inspired by those adventures.

These children’s cloth napkin idea came to me on Friday, while I was working with some of the young aritsts that I teach. The cute Montessori school had adorable reusable cloth napkins that I saw folded neatly into a basket. I plan to make them a gift of these holiday napkins, with hand printed silver doves. 

I am so grateful for each and every one of one.

I promise more fun surprises and gift ideas in the weeks to some.

Happy Thanksgiving!
