I've been working on a Petit Clochette prototype made using only Fancy Felt. I'd love to start making these for weddings, but I'd like to integrate French netting in the design, as well, which I think would be absolutely lovely. They'd be completely customizable, as there are 60 colors of Fancy Felt to choose from. I'm still working out some issues, but I hope to have these available soon!
A thoughtful surprise arrived today from Chad Merritt, one of the sweetest gents in the craft world. The lovely packaging, once opened, revealed a jointed silhouette bear creature, which I'm so thankful for!
Chad is the artist behind Mon Petite Fantome, who's amazing papercuts make my heart skip a beat. He also has a blog, where he shares some of his favorite things, as well as his art + music making. He's a fancy + talented lad, to say the least, and I'm thrilled to be in his good graces!
Nate + I took a trip to White Clay Creek State Park in Delaware to get out of the city for a spell + hang out with nature. We were also on the hunt for morels, fiddleheads, and leeks. We were unsuccessful in gathering wild produce, but we had an excellent hike + the perfect picnic.
I was lucky to celebrate spring break last week with my best friend, Nicole, and all my old pals, in the place I hold dear to my heart, Portland, Oregon. I can't believe how much food + shopping we were able to squeeze into such a short visit, but I feel like I saw + ate it all. Also, the weather was amazing, which made being there as delightful as ever. More photos here!
