{Good Read} Uppercase #11 love…

My love of UPPERCASE Magazine isn’t new. I’ve been a fan for awhile now- I’m only missing the 1st issue in my cherished collection. The magazine never ceases to inspire & delight me. I’m always amazed at how timely the topics are- it seems like each issue is always full of everything I’m currently interested in.  Now I know I say this EVERY time, but issue number 11 is my absolute favorite so far. In addition to the stellar content- there is another reason why I was thrilled when I flipped through the pages… 

Sayer was pretty excited to see the “Wise Old Owls” article too- particularly the {covet} page (pg 101). It’s always nice to get a nod or mention in print- but when it is in a favorite magazine that is so beautifully curated & designed, it’s particularly smile inducing. 
I’m still savoring the magazine but here are four articles that caught my attention right away. 

carving a niche : the small marvels of artist diam chau – page 39-41
scherenschnitte – page36-37
Scratching the Surface – page 86-87
fibre and fire : Lizz Aston – page 82-85

Funny, but two of these articles caught my attention because of Chris. He is a ceramicist & has been doing “sgraffito” for over 20 years in his personal work– which is where I first learned the term. In the work that he does for hutch studio, he has been exploring the concept of “sherenschnitte” over the last few years. So I the, Scratching the Surface and scherenschnitte articles, stood out to me in particular. 

This is truly a gorgeous magazine & I don’t have enough thumbs to give it the “thumbs up” that it deserves. If you are local to where I live – you can find this great magazine (in person) at, ideal: carefully curated goods,  in Bellingham, WA. 

Thanks Janine, you made my day. Kudos on other fantastic issue!

{Fun} City Dog….

I just got this cool magazine in the mail called City Dog & if you are a dog lover, I recommend checking it out (on the stands until October). It’s full of all sorts of great articles & features about life with a dog in the west (Seattle, Portland, & San Francisco). It was particularly fun to open up the magazine to the four page section called {Cool Products} because my Chasing Tails mobile was featured along the side of many, many “cool things for hot dogs“!  Thanks City Dog! Not bad for a Tuesday…

{mail} cool delivery…

Every now and then, I get an email from a publication requesting a klt:image. Those are always great inbox discoveries. However, I have learned over the years to not get my hopes up too high-as they don’t always pan out. But there are always those lovely few that do pan out and actually follow up by sending the publication to my doorstep. Yesterday, I received a magazine in the mail that was one of those “make my day” surprises. It was, burda style, a German sewing publication, that had requested images of my plush kitties awhile back. There is something sort of cool about seeing your products in a magazine that is written in a language that you don’t speak. The translation is always entertaining.
One of the things that I have always found interesting about making “products” is that they tend to go in waves as far as popularity. The kitties in particular (the plush, mobiles, & tees) are forgotten about for awhile and then I will get inquiries and sales all at once. Ironically, I am frantically working on orders for 20 plush kitties and 2 kitty mobiles this week- and shipped off 3 kitty tees yesterday. This feature has funny timing- it is the week of the kitty…MEOWWW!
