will only be available in the gallery. There will be snacks and drinks and
good tunes.....So come on down and join us.

There's no place like "Home"


A while back, I mentioned a contribution I did for Faesthetic Magazine regarding the theme of "Home." I recently expanded it and created a zine out of it. It is now up for sale on my webstore, will be up on etsy by the end of the week. (With better photos!)


But for now, here it is:
8 page, duotone zine
Comes with a Set of 4, hand printed coaster set. $10 plus shipping.
(only comes with one zine, there are 3 different covers that were created)

spoonmelove is LAUNCHED!

As you saw on our sneak peek on Monday, I've been working on this project spoonmeloveme with Bryn. After a year of back and forth, talking, discussing, designing, and printing, we are finally ready to launch. And here it is...



This project started out as an IM conversation between Bryn and I after a tumultuous day in New York. If you have a relationship with New York, you know that we have our ups and downs with it and sometimes you love it and sometimes you hate it but you always want it to love you.





This is our love note to Brooklyn and New York through posters and totes. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have in creating it. We plan to work on more cities, so keep your eye out.
Find our store at spoonmeloveme where we're only allotting a couple of items to be sold, we're fully launching our sales on Sunday at the Bust Craftacular at special prices. So see you then!

yes, yes, and my boyfriend will thank you

The new Sonia Rykiel lingerie line for H&M.
How about every one of these and a little liposuction to go with?
