AND INTO MY BRAIN-  THIS BLOG IS BASICALLY MY PERSONAL THERAPIST

I share my creative process, before & after photos, thrift hauls + time lapse videos because going behind the scenes is fun.  Also, it’s the kind of content I want to see from other makers.  And DOG GONE IT I just like to.

As my business & I have evolved over the y...

It was Earth Day & I was being hard on myself for not coordinating a clean-up, a special sale or let alone an e-blast saying, “Happy Earth Day!”  For a business centered around up-cycling it seemed sacrilege.

I learned a lot about myself while creating this bag, so I named it Rae & nearly kept it for myself. 

As I’ve fallen slightly behind on this venture, what was an attempt to get ahead ended up taking WAY longer than planned.  And I know this because I’ve finally started...

My 10th grade English teacher is the kind of person you thank during your acceptance speech of a lifetime achievement award.  Not only did a project in her class lead to a giant pipe dream of a career choice, but we crossed paths when I was just starting to try and fig...

I may talk like I'm a few flax seeds away from being a granola cruncher, but I’m not vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free or anti the next big thing to be anti, nor do I ever plan to be.  Unless the day comes where it’s possible to be against fruits/veggies, live off of pota...

These days I view my wardrobe a bit differently.  As I've been tidying my closet in attempts to clear out the stuff I don't like to wear, I've stumbled upon a few pieces that have potential to go from duds to faves with a little TLC.

My view on shopping has also changed...

Motorcycle chaps, blaze orange pants, skirt & blazer suit sets... You wouldn't believe the degree of hideous stuff that is made out of leather.  I've seen it all and I've cut it all apart.  


Now I could use your help gathering the fugliest of the fugly.

Turning garbage into glitter- some people are weirded out by it, some are intrigued, a precious few think it's freaking awesome, but everyone always wants to know how the obsession began...
