shop update!

i apologize for not posting much lately. i have been super busy trying to put a shop update together, and am also still working on the sewn drawings for the bambi show.

i started updating the shop yesterday, with some new smaller zipper purses in valentine's colors. i just finished adding the rest. they are going fast, but right now i have a few new totes (perfect laptop size!), a new batch of roundy-bottomed zipper purses, and lots of pencil purses. most of the ones i added yesterday are already sold (!), but there are a few smaller zipper purses in greens and aquas.

the bambi project, a few clutches, and a porcupine in my throat

i apologize for being a bit of a deadbeat blogger lately. i have been hard at work, i assure you. i am working on a new batch of my sewn drawings, which will be part of a show with katherine kaminski in february at the bambi gallery. i am very excited to work with candace (she owns the bambi gallery), and katherine, whom i have not yet met. i am not at liberty to reveal what she will be displaying, but it is very large and sweet and often found in the forest.

here is a sneak peek of one of my pieces

i will share more details about the show soon!

i am trying to also keep my etsy shop stocked, but because i have limited time to finish my work for bambi, this is proving to be a bit difficult right now. i finished up a few clutches and added them to the shop this morning, and i will try my best to add more bags soon!

i am also trying to keep myself healthy, because yesterday i woke up with a small porcupine in my throat. you know the feeling- achy everything, heavy head, no energy, fuzzy brain...
this does not make for a very productive day of sewing. and because i cannot get sick right now, i decided it was best to rest and drink lots of orange juice and tea and also watch stomp the yard, of course. if you have not seen this, please do. the battle scenes are so good. and it is kind of hilarious, because they are super tough dudes and they are dance battling each other. also, please watch rize, which is the documentary about clowning and krumping. rize is so much more amazing, because these are just regular kids, and their moves are incredible.

oh, you didn't know? i am a bit obsessed with dance movies. and completely unashamed.

i will post about future shop updates when they are ready.

and i hope everyone is enjoying 2009 so far!
