i recently participated in a photoshoot for the grand opening of a new boutique in town called BOHO. the photos were shot by local photographer Kyle Delmar and we featured some of my harnesses (which are also available at BOHO...get to shoppin, ladies!). it is always such an honor to collaborate with such talented and visionary people, and to be part of the collective forward movement in craft, culture, and local commerce. 

Kyle shot several other models in this infrared style for BOHO, resulting in a whole treasure trove of beautiful, glowing photos and beautiful, glowing women. A selection of them were printed and framed and are available for sale at the BOHO boutique. Stay tuned at Kyle's Flickr to see the other photos surface soon....the series is called "Orbs" in honor of the light orbs that appeared in all of the photos. BOHO is similar to a local Buffalo Exchange and buys back your clothes on Sundays and Mondays. It features a classic Californian/bohemian selection of used and vintage clothing as well as some local jewelry and treasures. If you live here, go visit!


monday morning

ahhhh at last i am here, having survived one of the busiest, most hard-working weeks of my life. it was amazing, so much work for so much joy, so much exhaustion and so much sleep, and finally, i am starting to feel normal again. the Hillstomp Gathering was a huge success - a beautiful, fiery gathering of glowing hearts and good music, and brave souls who weathered the cold. as soon as the sun rose, many of us began cleaning up and breaking down, and most people around us lent a hand, just to be kind. i really should write more about it now, but i don't quite have the words yet. i made this photo (i took the snapshots while we were setting up) to thank everyone who made it happen:

i wasn't able to make it to the grand opening on saturday of a new boutique in town (for which i made the harnesses mentioned in my last post), and i've not seen many photos yet, but i can't wait until they surface. i stocked the shop (BOHO) with a load of cool harnesses, and was also featured in the photography exhibit at the shop by Kyle Delmar. do you see me?

more photos of recent wonderments soon. xo



harnesses, harnesses

i made a new batch of harnesses....started getting creative on a few of them. and i finally have some beautiful new hangtags - aren't they great? all my new harnesses got sent off to a new boutique, but i'll be making more soon enough. 



i am working with Resonance Sound on planning/organizing/hosting a huge event this friday called the Hillstomp Gathering.... so for anyone who i love and owe communication to, it might not happen until this friday is over. i'm deep in a lot of phone calls and logistics and list-making and detail-remembering. it's crazy, but it's also very exciting. if you live in Nor Cal, you should come to the party. and if you don't, please send us your beloved thoughts of clear skies and smooth sailing.
