Dropped off a bunch of Not Made In China goods at The Common Market this morning. The modern general store will now be carrying NMIC magnets, pins, and (of course) bottle openers! So next time you're in Plaza Midwood or South End, stop by the CM for an ice cold beer and sneak a peak at their newest inventory.
Last Friday, my favorite new photographer and I had a three hour photo shoot. Melissa McDougall, of Belle Photography (website coming soon), is an artist. My goal was to capture Not Made In China's products-in-action, and I am absolutely THRILLED with the results. These are just some proofs of the over 300 photos taken. In the coming weeks, I hope to overhaul the "gallery" portion of my website with the new and improved images. Now, if only I could find another model who would pose for free...
I'm a fabric addict. And although I do have a sewing machine, and can make a mean pillow (if my mom helps), I'm not a seamstress by any means. So, instead, I maintain more of a fabric library. It's like an art collection in a drawer. I like to pull them out every once in awhile, drool on them a bit, imagine myself constructing purses or aprons or pillows out of them, and then put them back in their drawer. But since I discovered how to create pocket mirrors, now my fabrics can lead the lives I'd only dreamt about. Hope you like!
See all 9 inaugural mirrors after the jump!
Seriously gave me chills.
Cut, paste, repeat. For such a simple process, the results of Crown Town Handmade's collaged coasters run the gamut. Using old magazines, comics, Modge Podge, bathroom tiles and a little imagination, CTHm Members yielded some great places to rest icy beverages (mine's the "faux-saic" in the upper left).
Hope to see you at the next Make-Out on bookbinding (psssst... Not Made In China is instructing). Mark your calendars for Thursday, July 22nd!
