garden party?

we just put a new mini-birch tube set in the etsy shop. these would make such awesome favors for a shower or party...we attached some cross stitch initial tags to this set for a personal touch. filled with dahlias from the farmer's market, these birch tubes are a lovely gift for a friend- or a nice present to yourself! the set of four is $18.

back from east

it was a lovely trip to the east coast- an exhausting but amazing tour of nyc and brooklyn design shops (so nice to meet rena and visit rare device), a hot and sunny renegade craft fair, and a few days in newport rhode island with family. not so nice- the four hours waiting in the plane on the runway at jfk then six hour flight back to san francisco!

in progress

we worked on a few projects (that have been on the back burner for awhile) this weekend, including this little felted sweater bunny. she needs a bit more work, but should be in the shop soon.

ready to go

these three guys are set to go! you can purchase one in the etsy shop now. the fabric is hand-silkscreened, then sewn and stuffed with a combination of recycled paper shred, polyfil, and balsam scent. they have a nice, solid feel, thus the name "be firm big stump". the backing and leaf are wool felt with hand embroidered details.

maker faire favorites

we didn't spend all our time at the small stump booth. there were so many amazing crafters at the bazaar bizarre and our hard-earned cash was burning holes in our pockets! we have been coveting my paper crane's plush goodies online for a long time, so it was very nice to see them in person and meet the lovely heidi and her husband. we of course couldn't leave without this sad little stump (and an ice cream sandwich). the crocheted gnome vase by the super nice and talented jack rabbit also found its way home with us.

tiny mushrooms on the way

we'll be posting more mushroom sets on the website this weekend!

birch is back!

a new shipment of fabulous canadian birch arrived on saturday, with more expected in the next few weeks. we put together a set of five pieces with varying heights that's available now for $28 on our website. we'll also be adding a sweet mini-set in mid-june.

outside would be funner

sorry pee wee, there's work to be done. a big shipment of birch bark tubes just arrived from canada. we'll post a new set on the website that will be available later in the week.

bazaar bizarre

we had an amazing time at the san francisco bazaar bizarre. it was part of the maker faire held at the san mateo fairgrounds on may 19th and 20th. our booth had a partytime woodland theme complete with forever cupcakes and stand tall little stumps!
