Weekly Want: Tough Luck

I was super bummed when I heard the news of Falconwright closing shop. The ladies of FW cited that they were closing up to move on to new projects. A couple months have passed and Sandi Falconer has opened a new shop: Tough Luck. I was already a huge fan of Sandi’s work so naturally I would follow her to whatever new project she was starting. Tough Luck, so far, looks like a continuation of her personal stuff previously under the name Deadweight. But she’s added a few new pieces which I’m totally in love with!

I Only Have Eyes For You

I've been trying out some new things and making brooches out of polymer clay. It's been nice working with a 3D medium again. I made a couple of these eye brooches, available in black & blue. Each one is hand-sculpted & hand-painted, making them unique; no two are exactly alike. You can find them in my shop!

Weekly Want: Hand-painted Cat Brooch by Emma Carlisle

I feel like I've been lagging on blogging because I've been focusing on producing new work. It's been a little disheartening seeing a lot of my favorite Etsy shops close & move their shops elsewhere…or worse, close forever. But being a seller myself, I understand. I don't expect my etsy shops to be there forever either. But the one thing I really miss about the old Etsy is how easy it was to discover new sellers & great products. The new Etsy tries to predict what you will like based on what you previously liked or what your friends are liking and it ends up being a bunch of repetitive stuff.

I think that's why I haven't posted a Weekly Want in a while. I just haven't come across anything recently that wowed me. But I've been thinking a lot of Emma Carlisle's work lately. Everything about her work just makes me happy. It's probably mostly because a lot of her work features a orange tabby cat that reminds me of my Sebastian. This week I'm loving this particular hand-painted brooch. It just looks like Sebastian when he's looking to play!

Available from her shop.

New in the Shop: Love Letter Brooch

Last week, Kevin and I registered to be vendors at DesignerCon 2015. Even though it's 7 months from now, I'm starting to work on some new products just for the show. One the things I'm making for the show are new brooches. The first of which are these Love Letter Brooches. Each one is handmade, hand-painted, and unique! They're currently available in the shop and there's more on the way!

Hello There, Tangerine Cat

I just added this little guy to the shop. He's a quick little painting I did earlier this week. I have a couple more things I've working on this week, one of which is an Easter special; you'll just have to wait and see.

I'm also having a Spring Cleaning Sale in the shop! Get 25% Off all orders with code: SPRING2015 now until Monday. I'm looking to cut down some of my greeting card inventory to make room for more prints.
