An unexpected surprise on American Horror Story

Earlier this year I sold on of my vintage linen  sleep masks from my Etsy store.

The purchaser asked me to ship it as soon as possible because it was going to be used in a TV show. I figured it was a local show and sent the mask off without another thought about it.

Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago when my daughter and I sat down to watch one of our favorite shows together. My daughter loves horror movies and zombie flicks so of course she loves American Horror Story. Coven was our favorite season so far and we even bought matching black hats so we could feel a bit witchy.

So this season starts and it is SCARY. I almost can’t handle it. I have this problem where I empathize with fictional characters way too much. So I’m watching episode 2 and hiding my eyes and cringing when all of a sudden I jump off the couch “that’s my eye mask!”

One half of Sarah Paulson’s character is trying to sleep while her other half is trying to have a conversation and she is wearing, you guessed it, my sleep mask that I shipped off weeks ago and forgot all about.

My daughter was thrilled to think that something I made was in such close proximity to Evan Peters and I was pretty excited to see my work somewhere so unexpected. Their costume people must spend an enormous amount of time looking for unique items that can fit in with the time period. That sounds like a fun job doesn’t it?

…and I am going to keep watching this season even if my eyes are closed sometimes!

A Summer’s Tale Tote Bag

I designed this little gingham wisp of a tote bag a few years ago for a friend. I love it so much that I made myself one too. I decided that this summer would be the perfect time to make a few more to offer on Etsy.

It is just a slight little tote for summer days or evenings out when you don’t want to carry anything heavy.

A new banner and some Holiday fun

I made this little collage right before the Holidays and used it as the image for some postcards and tags for the holiday craft show I did. I also added part of it to my Etsy store as a new banner.

This is my little set up at the craft show.

My daughter and I love The Walking Dead and one of our favorites Quotes from Rick is “…I’m doin’ stuff Lori, (long pause) and things”.  So with that in mind, I made some jars to hold your precious “stuff and things”.

And these are the Lost Souls rescued from obscurity and ready to be taken home.

I love making little things for a craft show every once in a while, it gives me a chance to just play and have fun.

I have been cutting up old men’s wear and reusing it to make some fall scarves and other goodies.  Here’s a sneak peak of the scarves I finished today.  Look for them in the shop soon!
