Really love these new scarves I have been working on. Silk cut velvet paired with hand-dyed silk.

This year my dad decided to send out Thanksgiving cards to his business clients in lieu of the traditional holiday / Christmas cards. I think it's a nice idea!
So I was commissioned by my dad to make the Thanksgiving cards. I researched mostly vintage post cards (my go-to when researching). Somehow the turkeys, pumpkins, pilgrims, etc. weren't working for me..
This is what I came up with:
- Gift Shop Brooklyn
- An ever-changing inventory of handmade accessories and gifts. Items made in limited quantities, to keep things unique and fresh. I truly am inspired so much by nature. Just walk outside and there's millions of things to be inspired by, whether city or country. At different points in my life, or year, or day I can look at the same thing and see it in a completely new way. I realize Im not the first person to be inspired by nature, but I find it amazing how we can all be inspired so uniquely by it. I am a pretty practical person; I feel designs should have form AND function. I USE all of my designs to ensure ease of use, aesthetic appeal, and versatility. If at the end of the day I don't love it, it goes back to the drawing board; or on the back burner; or just tossed on the 'prototype' pile. I also make sure all my designs are items I personally would love to give as gifts.
