I made a mobile with huge glass-winged butterflies and hung it over my bed. They’re so calming, I really wish I thought of this sooner
I've been taking on more freelance work lately including designing logos and signs for local businesses. This is one I made for @polarbarebath, a fellow woman-owned shop that makes soaps, scrubs, and bath bombs (all of which would make wonderful gifts 😉). Remember to shop small this holiday season and if you need any kind of design help call me, your friendly neighborhood maker/artist 👩🎨
I made these little bird ornaments for the Rengade craft fair this weekend. The wings slot in and they're not glued so they're easier to store after the holidays. They're made out of the same wood and eco-friendly stain as my clocks and each one has a clear monofilament loop for hanging (not pictured). They'll be available in packs of 4 🎄
Happy small business Saturday! Im celebrating today with the Oak Moss clock because it's one of my favorite designs. I always take progress photos as I work which means I have the full evolution from start to finish. Looking back it's clear that I wasn't really sure where I was going with it, in fact I almost scrapped it more than once. Since I don't report to anyone it's hard to tell if I'm onto something or just wasting my time. That's part of the trouble of being a very small business, but that's also why I get to make designs that I probably wouldn't make otherwise.
P.s. I have a sale happening on my Etsy shop. Remember to buy small and local this holiday season!
I made two signs for my holiday Renegade booth and now I have to pick between them. I think the top one is nicer and more Christmas-y but the bottom one might stand out better against everything else that I'll have going on. Thoughts?
Itty bitty type scraps! Btw I'll be selling my stuff at the @renegadecraft fair in Chicago on Dec 2nd and 3rd. Wish me luck, and if you can come out and buy clocks!
This is the last new clock I'll be releasing for a while. It's called the Moth clock and it's inspired by the Vitra Petal Clock by George Nelson.
Btw, for all the clock jokes I've heard over the years and all the wing designs I've toyed with it's crazy that nobody has ever said "time flies". Everyone must have more sense than me.
Update: this is the third and possibly final prototype of the Eclipse clock. It looks a lot softer and more versatile in the Bourbon and Espresso stains but Halloween has been kicking in around here so I'm gravitating towards everything dark and witchy 🖤🍂
I keep telling myself I won't make another clock but I just can't seem to shake them. I think this one is inspired by the eclipse. I watched it from the path of totality at a little church on a hill in a little town in MO. It looked like a ring of blue fire. This is the first prototype of the design. The hour markers and center section are meant to look like little moons blocking out the sun.
Idk how to photograph this without revealing the utter chaos of my apartment but this is what I'm working on right now. It's a mobile of giant goldfish💕Each one is 16 x 11" and they're hanging from an 18" hexagon. The tiniest breeze sends them swimming. They still need to be tweaked and stained but they'll definitely be in the next collection along with the bird mobile
