I wanted to share some recent works. It’s nice to have an outlet to talk about what I do instead of just speaking to myself or my cat.
I’ve been playing with simplicity lately. I’ve been thinking a lot about this quote from Paul Simon- “It’s actually very difficult to make something both simple and good.”
I also still love playing with new fabrics & quotes (both stupid & serious) so my work tends to be all over the map as a whole but that’s fine with me. I’m just happy that I’m still passionate about embroidery. My biggest fear was that I would come to hate it pretty quickly but I’m still happily stitching away the days.
These are all for sale, of course, if you’re so inclined, or rather if you just want to check out what other things I’m working on you can see them (here)

Stepping up my game in the greeting card department!! Tis the season for Father’s Day cards, and I’ve just put up in my shop a fun alternative to ho hum golfing/beer dad cards (don’t get me wrong, both of those things are super great). These cards are printed on recycled white Mohawk folding cards and come with a linen finish Eastern Metallic envelope, sized A2.
Make that classy man in your life smile with a dapper dino card!! :D
We’ve been noticing a recent street style trend that always looks chic, and it doesn’t necessarily involve a designer label. Forget about what you’ve heard about proportions for a minute and open up your mind to a new look - the straight silhouette. Here’s how you get it: layer a loose, long sweater or thick top over a midi skirt or dress, add a pair of heels and voila. It’s exceptionally easy and ever-so-chic. Your proportions may look slightly out of whack, but a great pair of heels will take the look from sloppy to sophisticated in a matter of seconds. Take a page from the street style handbook and try out the slouchy-cool look with our editors’ favorite pairings below!
