My family and I have moved to the San Francisco Bay Area! As we transition to our new residence, I have taken a break from my art. I am using this down time to think of new innovations and new directions for my craft. Please contact me if you have any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
Everyone loves magnets, right? The only problem is that you need something magnetic to stick them to! The stainless refrigerator trend put a damper on the classic “fridge magnet collection” trend since they were no longer magnetic but have no fear, I’ve found a way to let you put your hipstamagnets anywhere you want. The Hipstaframes now afford you many many options. Hang it on your wall, put it on your mantle or even bring to work to put on your desk. I have two sizes and now, two colors to chose from for the larger size (black and brown). The small holds 4 magnets and the large holds 9 magnets. What do you think?
A friend of mine moved to St. Louis from LA and asked me where to find reasonably priced furniture that isn’t for the masses, modern and of good quality. I could think of one place, but to be honest, I didn’t feel strongly about my recommendation. Someone else must of felt my pain because The Refind Room opened up and I’ve been waiting for a “furniture budget” ever since! The owner, Suzanne, finds vintage, modern, mid-century, antique and contemporary furniture and furnishings and resells them. The best part about the outfit, is that she has turned the store into a tasteful showroom, purposefully placing pieces in “rooms” so you can see what that great coffee table might look like next to two club chairs and a great retro lamp. When I first visited, it was hard not to buy the entire “room!” Check out more photos on her facebook page.
The St. Louis Craft Mafia is having a pop-up market with 6 members who will be showcasing their own “home furnishings” among The Refind Room collection. I encourage all of you to stop by on Saturday, June 15th during our show. If anything, Suzanne’s decorating sense will give you some ideas on how you can make your new or hand-me down furniture look like you hired a stylist.
What a wonderful show we just had at Green With Indie. For this show, I debuted a new product: Framed Magnet Boards with upcycled keyboard magnets!
