makers mess

sunday's paper mache ornament workshop at maker's mess in silverlake was a huge success! it was a full class of 23 makers and i wasn't expecting all the beautiful unique ornaments that were created! a few photos i took...and regret not taking more!! 
thanks to the wonderfully positive response for this workshop, i'm hosting another  on december 16th. since it's already sold-out in a day with a full load of 25 makers, i'm considering doing a more intensive 4 hour workshop on paper mache mobile making in january. if you're interested, please contact makers mess for more info.

9 years of mobiles!

happy birthday to sid my kid 3 of 3. his birthday marks 9 years of making mobiles! when he was born, i wanted to make a mobile for him. we had moved 4 or 5 times that year (from east coast to west cast) and the only things i could find unpacked around the apartment were newspapers and cardboard boxes. i made him a mobile of little houses with paper mache that i hung from a branch with an igloo, teepee, airstream, yurt,  and a frame. i loved this mobile so much that i made another, put it on my jikits blog and etsy and it sold immediately. then it was featured on design sponge!  sid was only one month old when we moved and i never stopped making. he's my golden boy leo sign also born on mick jagger's birthday:)

branco collaboration
as a child growing up, our family had a little house on silver strand beach in oxnard, california. i remembered the brightly painted sidewalks and collecting magical stones and colored glass. revisiting our childhood beach with my sister, the sidewalks are still there! we collected some smooth magical pebbles and brought them home. after drilling small holes, these pebbles were brightly painted (like the sidewalks in silver strand :) designer maria branco asked me to do a collaboration and look how beautiful these pendant necklaces are! They are now available just in time for summer at branco
