Woohoo! Today I am sharing with you my very first Zine. After 10 YEARS of wanting to make something like this, I fulfilled a teenage dream, sat down, and made one. Sometimes an idea becomes so daunting even though you know it isn’t a big deal. Making this zine required that I didn’t think too hard about the technacalities of it’s creation. Sometimes you just need to bring yourself to the project to get your juices flowing. I can’t tell you how excited I was when I got to the copy store and ran off xeroxed copies of my very first ‘angsty’ (not so much) zine.
I created this as a collage using all kinds of tapes, ephemera, pictures, stickers etc. It is meant to inspire. I wanted it to be layered with little details that make it fun to pick up again. I named it Love Potions, after this month’s moodboard. The zine itself is a little quirky. Imagine weird things you might keep because of a boy you liked, or how you felt about love in elementary school… that is this.
These zines are available on etsy. I would love to mail you one! I will hand make each cover and include a love note for you. Happy Wednesday!
I have obsessivly been watching this skirt on Modcloth for two months! Ai yi yi! I just think it is awesome! As we transition into Fall, many of you will get to bundle up and enjoy brisk Fall winds. Here in Los Angeles, we suffer the heat into November. I channel Fall by wearing Fall colors…not by drinking hot beverages and drowning myself in blankets. Totally wish I could though… Can I put that on my Fall wishlist?
I’m spending most evenings lately keeping an eye on my to-do list, working on little crafts here or there and watching 30Rock. This is such a busy but FULL season in my life and I really love it. I can’t wait to share more of my special projects. Happy Tuesday, Sweet Thangs!

I am so excited to share this project I have been working on and dreaming on since November ’11! I created these collars to be worn with just about anything: dresses, tank tops, crew necks, whatever! When designing these, I was really excited by old fashioned costumes and show ponies. I love color and whimsical design. I really hope you enjoy Show Pony Collars!
