Maker’s Monday…kinda

ramona

Hey y’all.  You may notice that this is coming to you a little later in the day than usual.  Today we decided to bring you something a little different – partly because of the fact that none of the interviews from our queued up Makers are quite ready to go but mostly because I wanted to get my husband in on a post and we BOTH have some major crushes on some magnificent makers and we just can’t keep it in any longer.  So here you go! Clint’s Crushes (Dave Massman/Ramona Press/Scott Dye) These three makers use different mediums for different purposes, but they are all driven by the desire to make a quality product with their hands. Detail, precision, and care can be found throughout their work, and that’s one of those things that inspire me, and motivate me to get away from a glowing screen and make something I :READ MORE:

Maker’s Monday!

Paloma

Happy Memorial Day everyone!  How lovely is it to have a long weekend, best spent with family, food and beautiful weather!  I’ve loved every minute of it and to top it off, I get to present you with a Maker that I have been excited about for, like, ever. Popbasic is a company I have supported since their first ‘Micro Collection’.  I found them through a friend and was hooked on the concept immediately, not to mention the fact that their CEO is an Australian transplant, just like me!  Popbasic’s mission is to fill your closet with high quality staples – the things that you don’t necessarily buy at the mall (because we all get distracted by trend pieces, lets face it) – but the items that you WISH you had as you stare blankly into your closet, trying to make an outfit out of all these now-dorky trends.  I feel :READ MORE:

Maker’s Monday

anchor

It’s that time again! Maker’s Monday, comin’ at ya like a northern bullet.  Excited is basically my normal state of being (backtrack through my posts, you’ll notice I say it a lot), but I am SERIOUSLY excited for today’s Maker.  It’s so nice having this feature come together the way it has, I have a lineup of Makers who are just so dreamy and so many wonderful collaborations ahead because of this.  Anyway, onward with today’s post! Today, I would like to introduce you to Mark Gypson, a Leather Craftsman (among MANY things, check out his typography and other ventures via the Tumblr link below) from Ft. Wayne.  I found Mark on Tumblr (I find a lot of things there, ie: Husband) and the things he was making just caught me.  I have to say, it was the Brass/Leather rings that roped me in at first, but the rest of his :READ MORE:

Maker’s Monday

tim&cate invite

I am so absolutely thrilled to be starting this new feature!  Maker’s Monday is set to become a regular post, published on the last Monday of every month and will showcase the work and life snippets of some of my favorite makers. We define a Maker as anyone who creates.  Music, home wares, art, words, furniture and ANYTHING else you could possibly think of.  These people inspire me and capture my attention entirely to the point that I want to know all about them and I would like to share what I learn with you also.  I have some exciting (and hopefully EXCITED) Makers lined up for the coming months, none more exciting than our very first Maker’s Monday Maker (mouthful) – Hilary Thackway! Hilary is a Sydney based maker of just about anything that cartwheels around her brain.  Her work is full of laughter and light and I had the :READ MORE:
