I have a new friend, someone I feel like I should have been friends with a long time ago. Her creativity and artwork inspires me constantly. Lately I’ve even been dreaming about collaborating with her. I want to move back to Kansas City and start a business with her!
Its Kaley Cornett, if you haven’t guessed already.
(not to mention, she’s the cutest, ever. ^^^)
There is nothing better than a great cluster of pottery. In-process or finished, it doesn’t matter to me. I find great joy in staring at a cluster of pots. Knowing the work that goes into working with clay I have such an appreciation for what it takes to get a good cluster going. I have a few clusters going myself—I’ve got to get some kilns loaded! And you know what? Cluster is a great word today.
The Manhattan Senior center has donated vintage Christmas decorations, jewelry, home goods and more. All for sale, and all benefitting the senior center. I picked up these amber colored glass votive holders, and that sweet little white necklace.
What a sweet treat! The votive holders were $1 each, and the necklace was $8! Score!
Manhattan friends, you can still make it! The sale will continue tomorrow and Saturday, 11am-6pm at The Dusty Bookshelf. Hope you find something good!
Have I told you about my shop? Well, it just opened. Its just the beginning, I’m hoping to fill it full here in the next few days or so. Please stop by!
here are some of my favorites.
I think wrapping paper is rather ridiculous. Spend $9 on a roll of mediocrely-designed paper that is just going to be ripped up and thrown away? I don’t think so.
So I pulled out some of those old paper grocery sacks, turned them inside out, purchased a silly little foam stamp, and viola! Better-than-store-bought wrapping paper. Now, to find the right ribbon and make some new tags!
So there’s my friend Kate, artist and blogger behind Advo.Kate. She posted up this super sweet post about a bowl I made, over in the shop, and she totally beat me to the punch! I was going to blog about her creations! I had no idea she’d beat me to it. So it looks as though I’m just saying this because she said such a nice line about me, but really it was my idea first! And she’s brilliant. Her cards and calendars can be purchased from her Etsy shop, advokatedesign.
Her work is so adorable. Especially this card here:
Its my favorite! The inside says “hey, how are ya?” I instantly thought “I’d send it to my friend Cammie”. Perhaps I shall…
