Wrapping Up the Holidays

I’m in a bit of a pickle. This is due to the fact that I got a jump on holiday shopping, and proudly began the wrapping process a couple weeks ago, getting more than halfway through before running out of wrapping paper. Which did not impact my continued shopping – that’s been going full steam ahead; without a list and apparently with very little regard to what I might have already purchased. Because, of course, I can’t remember what’s in all those lovely packages. So now that I’ve procured more paper (and more gifts), I’m mostly just staring at the whole mess in hopes of an epiphanal moment. Note to self: wrap everything at the same time. Make a list. And buy plenty of gift wrap. (As always, click to shop!)

Peg and Awl

iusb_760x100.7603264

I just had to feature this amazing little shop I discovered lately on Etsy. Peg and Awl is the collaboration of a husband and wife team of makers, who create exceptional “treasures built from abandoned materials” in their Philadelphia studio.

Our work is made from olde things. Treasures found and recovered from misfortune and neglect, relics of the unusual, the confused and the macabre, cut and pulled and built into wearable curiosities, and useable, long-lasting keepsakes. We used to make them for ourselves and now we make them for everyone.

A Maker in Milan

MI+ED Design_Logo

MI+ED creates handmade, eco-friendly illustrated and hand printed goods; all using high quality materials like recycled paper, organic cotton, linen and non toxic inks.
All the patterns and drawings are created by the artist in her studio in Milan, Italy. (As always, click to shop!)

I’m a maker.

I love sketching anything that is smaller than my hand.
I love getting ink all over. I like to experiment with different materials and tools.
I get inspired by many things, especially by small things that people don’t usually notice.
I walk a lot and I pick up and put little treasures in my pockets: a nice stone, a bud, a piece of paper or string.
I have boxes full of these treasures.
I love nature and one day I would love to live by the sea or nearby a forest.

I put a lot of love in what I make.
