wow, here after months, hello to this site.
alot has been happening in the last while.
i managed to move out of my 9 year nest in oakland
and transplant my self, cats & collections to
a magical lil cabin in olympia.

the actual move was a nightmare ( never ever rent from budget )
but thanks to two of my best comrades, Hali & Peter,
we made it here safe & sound-ish, though very very traumatized..
with 4 cats in hand & one delivered on the way to a friend in portland.

my cat friends are really into our new place but
rather annoyed they can’t run wild in the woods.
hoping to build them a lovely cattery on our porch soon..
i’m pretty sure they see faeries everywhere here

it has been slow going getting the studio set up. it’s starting to feel a bit
more like my world. i’m downsizing again, so will be offering
a lot more antique clothes &  treasures in the
next months in my garage sale shop over at

the fabric when it was still all organized. it’s gotten quite messy now..
that’s kind of a good thing though, signs of life, haha
i’ve opened commissions from now until the end of september..
then i will be on a break again until spring/summer 2018
i’m fully booked on bridal work until then as well.
send a note if you’re interested in a custom order or makeover..

all these photos are from my instagram, by the way.
that seems be the place i update the most on the internets
lately, though i plan on being here on this site much more soon.
