I know I've said it before [and I'm certain I'll say it a dozen more times], but really one of the very best things about having this online journal are the wonderful people I've met over the past three years. Not only have I received so much support + encouragement from these friends, I've also been incredibly inspired by their creativity. I recently received goodies in the mail from two of my favorite ladies in Kansas, who have teamed up again to bring us the eye candy that is the Wiksten spring/summer 08 collection! I literally gasped when I saw the first images from the collection online, but the lookbook that Jenny sent me is AMAZING! I told Jenny that the photographs looked like they were pulled from a [non stuffy] high fashion magazine. Jenny's signature tops and dresses are so chic, yet simple and timeless. Like always, I want one of everything! She's stocking her new shop on Saturday, so good luck in snatching up your favorite pieces! You can read more about Jenny + her new line over at Heart Handmade.
I'm also so excited about all of Hannah's new work. I love the way she captures everyday life through the lens of her Pentax + Polaroid. There is something about her photographs that makes you feel at home. When she was visiting Portland last month I asked her about ordering larger prints of the photographs that she sells in her sweet shop. And she was so kind enough to send me my favorite prints for my birthday! I have them framed in my studio and I love them so much! You can see more of Hannah's work in her upcoming book collaboration and if you live in the KC area, go check out Hannah's first show on June 6 at Habitat.
P.S. Thank you to everyone who placed shoppe orders last week. For those who inquired, I'll be restocking the mouse + pads and hair accessories, I'm just waiting on the supplies. I'm hoping to squeeze in a tiny shoppe update on Friday/Saturday.
