Another sneak peek from the winter knits shoot–I canNOT wait to see all the images!


And, a couple of new knits that hit the shop over the weekend.  I didn’t manage to get them completed for the shoot, sadly, but I DID get my new photo studio together in order to snap some images for the shop.  (pictures of that later this week)


Love this one–I mean, SEQUINS AND WARMTH?  Sign me up.  (you can find it here:  https://www.etsy.com/listing/104300695/multi-color-scarf-sequined-scarf-hand?ref=shop_home_active_12)


I love the natural-fiber look of this one.  (find it here:  https://www.etsy.com/listing/175544848/brown-chunky-cowl-wheat-knit-cowl?ref=shop_home_active_17)

Happy Monday!  It’s my sister’s 30th birthday today, and I’m wishing I was able to celebrate it with her.  Happy Birthday, Lexo-face!  You kick ass!

Over the Weekend

Over the weekend I had my annual winter knits shoot with a couple of my favorite friends–who also just-so-happen to be an amazing photographer and hair/make up artist, respectively.  I also got to work with one of my favorite models again.  Looking forward to the final images!  I’m always so impatient for those.  I try really hard to not start asking “are they ready yet?” every few hours.

A behind-the-scenes sneak peek:


My inspiration this year had to be, ultimately, scaled waaaay down since I don’t have an old falling-down house, tons of money, or a snow machine.  I started with this idea from a Vogue Korea shoot:


Yeah….that wasn’t going to happen this year.  So, I scaled back and decided to do something similar to last years, with changes  Last year’s looked like this:


That last knit shoot produced some of my favorite ever images.  Britt of Underexposed Photography did this years shoot, too–so I can’t wait to see how amazing the images are!

Hair inspiration this year:


Make up inspiration this year–but without the crazy-creepy eyes.  I wanted her to look beautiful, but slightly frozen, going further with the frozen idea than we did last year.  (Amanda Bravender did hair and make up on my shoot–and she’s amazing, so it looked fabulous):


I can’t wait to start sharing the final images!


In between sewing up custom orders, I’ve been editing many, many pictures from a photo shoot I did on Monday of this week.


I think I’ve mentioned before how lucky I feel to meet so many talented and wonderful people in my area.  I got to utilize THREE of these fabulous folks for this shoot.


The amazing Amanda Bravender did hair and make up for my two models. (For inquiries:  http://www.ahbweddingandevents.com)


My models were sisters Nancyjane ( http://www.modelmayhem.com/2403245 ) & Hannah Johnson ( http://www.modelmayhem.com/795520 ).

We had a BLAST.  Seriously, I don’t think I’ve had that much fun in a long, long time.


So, slowly but surely, new items are rolling into the shop.


These images are just a taste of what’s to come!
