Sooooo I've been super busy with orders and new plugs latley but I'm here today! I'm going to give you a little sneak peek of a new project I have in mind.
Vintage News Paper Printing Blocks
That is a picture of a few newspaper printing blocks. I have a huge box of them that I got from 7 Mile fair about a month ago. I'm not sure how well they are going to print for me but I know some will work and others will not at all. My idea is to make some newspaper print fabric (dresses skirts shirts all that jazz too). No two will look alike! If it turns out the way I hope then it is going to be amazing so wish me luck :)

The place where I live is also having a gallery this July and a open house that should bring a lot of people in. I am hoping to be able to submit a dress or two, one with a painting on it (fabric dye painted on) and another with mass amounts of roses/flowers. It's a little hard to explain and I'm not the best at drawing clothes so you guys will have to wait a bit. I'm planning to start the pattern tonight so it shouldn't be terribly long for in progress photos. I would also like to do the open house and open up my apartment....but I've been slacking on things like painting my furniture for the living room and looking for new couches :/ but it should be done in time...fingers crossed!

Tie Dye Fun and Pink Suitcases

Sooooo I wanted to share our tie dye fun with you guys! We did it last week and it was a blast! Milo loved it and I'm sure we will do it again in the near future. Although I would like to find a more natural alternative to the dye, it hurt my fingers really bad (stung like a mother trucker!) it also dried them out a lot too. If any of you guys have more natural alternatives we could use (even if they're not super bright colors) I would love to hear them. Along with the shirts we did I also did a test chunk of fabric, a very large test chunk and I love how it turned out.

And now shirts with goofy faces and thumbs up!!

New New New!!!

Good news! Last week a customer requested 2G plugs. Now if you don't know I do not carry anything lower than 0G. I was very excited to take this challenge up, especially because it was a pair of flower plugs! They turned out fantastic! Better than I could have hoped. So my first announcement of the day is I will now be carrying 2G for specific styles of plugs :)
2G Plugs Now Avaliable!

Here is another new pair of plugs I have been working on. Rock plugs! Made from smashed rocks with a little sparkle in them :) Other colors are available but not pictured yet.

I also have some of my items (mostly jewelry) at Project M in Milwaukee, check it out if you're in the area, it's an amazing store.

Tie Dye pics tomorrow!!! I made some sweet fabric using tie dye to show off to you guys :)

Happy Crappy Tuesday!!! hahaha I only say that because it's an icky day here in WI.

So this is my place to come and vent every now and then so I'm going to do it here today. Thankfully for you I have the wrist of a 90 year old lady today so it hurts to type and this blog may be short.

I hate hate hate dishonest people! I won't say exactly what is bothering me because I don't feel like I should call any specific person out. It's just super frustrating when people who are honest and follow the rules don't do as well as the others who lie and cheat..but I guess that's how it goes. I just hope karma comes around and kicks them in the pants...well not really but I hope they realize what they are doing is wrong and stop.

Okay I suppose that wasn't to much venting, thankfully I wrote this a little after I got all heated up on this subject.

Anywho good news! I have some new plug designs coming to the shop soon! All different sorts so keep your eyes peeled :) I also find out this week about Renegade in Chicago, I really really hope I get in! Then again I'm a little nervous that if I get in I'll be very scattered and unorganized :/ Wish me luck!
