I couldn't give this one up...

I screenprinted, stenciled, then handpainted this shirt, and finally reconstructed it.
By the end of it, I couldnt give it up. 

But i promise to make more and put them in my shop :)

Three 5 Eighty 5

Gorgeous Earrings by Lyn and Gette of Three 5 Eighty 5. These earrings are handmade and hand-woven to perfection. After I had seen these earrings on etsy, I actually saw them in person, on this women in a coffee shop in Chicago, and they are beautiful. What a fun strange coincidence!

So i have been researching Reeboks, and i'm excited to say that i got them in the mail over the weekend! yeah, I got the vintage white looking ones, but i would have loved these other ones, but they were either 80-120 bucks, or they didnt have my size. Also, they might have been hard to match outfits too :)
LOVE them all!

Octopus Me

So fun, and detailed, i love these pieces!! Deana from OctopusME is super sweet, and creative, I can't believe that she intricately designs, casts, fabricates, and metal works these wonderful creations. 

I love her shop announcement, and i was reading through all of her descriptions, and she has a fun fact about  Octopuses'(is that a word?) , with each different item, and description! You can learn something new when reading about her creations! check it out!

heres one fact:
Octopus Fact: Sometimes when an octopus releases a cloud of ink, the cloud is shaped like the creature itself. This is called pseudomorph, meaning false body. Often the cloud fools a predator long enough for the octopus to get away.

The story of the NIU shooting really hits close to home, since I went there, just a few short years ago, as well as my boyfriend Donnie,  My sister Annie, Her husband Chad (NIU Cop 2 years ago), my closest friends, Katie, Casey, Erin, Alyssa, Michael, Alex, Bryan, Keenan, Quinn, Dan, and so many more people to name.  Its really hard to believe when this was Your school, that you went to. I can't even imagine, how terrifying, it must be to have been at the campus when this happened.  We have all had class in Cole Hall. If Anyone wants to comment, or needs to say or get out anything, feel free to post it here. 

I just pray for those students, and faculty who are going through the experience right now. I pray that they can talk to people, and get help to deal with this horrible act. How could you go to school after that? And most of all I pray for the families and friends of the students who have passed on, and who are injured.

PICAPICA - One Artist, So Much creativity

Liz Grotyohann has a meticulous attention to detail, a thirst for knowledge, and a love of ephemera that serve her well in the myriad aspects of her creative work. Trained as a Graphic Designer, Liz works 40 plus hours a week as a designer specializing in exhibition and environmental graphics. 

When her 9-5 day is done, she gets to work with her hands, shifting the scale of her creative work to personal collages and assemblages. Lately exploring recycling and repurposing household waste, Liz, has created beautiful and functional objects from materials that would most likely be discarded. She is also working on exploring a jewelry line based on her collage art. 

Wow. Liz, has got it all, What an amazing craft, and style, and she definetly wears many hats in the creative world. 

I could have added so many more images, so please check out her website, to find your own personal fav's
