Little Llama

Monday, February 9th, 2009

I recently noticed a pretty little pair of earrings on Etsy’s main page. It took me a few seconds to then notice the background… one of my own recycle bin books! Little Llama’s shop is full of beautiful jewelry and the photos of the jewelry are great too. Below are a few images that include my own creation as a prop. Lovely! I would be pleased as punch to wear any of these.

Hedgehog Surprise

Tuesday, April 15th, 2008


Yesterday I received the best surprise ever… a ceramic hedgehog that’s not only handsome, but it’s a rattle and a whistle too! I’ve had my eye on this little handmade cutie for some time. It was created right here in the Los Angeles area by fellow Etsian, MaidOfClay. Thank you benben for this smiling little pal!

123 Mini Tag Books

Saturday, February 16th, 2008


Here they are! Earlier I mentioned a special project that I worked on in conjunction with the online shop, Three Potato Four. We came up with a set of three little books made from inventory tags. I screen printed numbers onto the covers with a Print Gocco, lined them with special papers and bound them using a pamphlet stitch. Each set is bundled in a little handmade muslin bag. I think these would be fun for grownups too!

Here are a few more cute items available through Three Potato Four’s brand new Kids section:





Three Potato Four

Sunday, January 20th, 2008


I’m oh so far behind in posts and updates! So much has happened since the Holidays. First, after a link from Boing Boing (yay!), I spent the days (and nights) leading up to Christmas packing up dozens of rocket clocks. The next two weeks were refreshing; time was spent with family and friends back in Kansas. Upon arriving back in CA, I dug right in to a special project for a fantastic online shop.

The shop is called Three Potato Four. The owners continually update their beautiful selection of new and antique items, all inspired by their love of collections. In February they will launch a special section dedicated to kids. We worked together to create a set of little books that will be a part of this section. You’ll have to wait until February to see them, and all I can tell you is that they are super cute!

Here are a few examples of the goodies to be found at the Three Potato Four online shop:
