I'm pleased to say that Small Adventure has had its first interview! You can read it on a cool blog called Indie Icing that does a good job of finding and promoting less prominent Etsy shops. Thank you to Jessica of Indie Icing for being interested in our very humble goods.

I made some packaging for a larger than normal order. Just a little drawstring bag and some labels, but I think they came out pretty well. Someday I'd like to have a consistent identity for Small Adventure complete with business cards, stationery, tags and labels, drawstring bags, boxes and shipping supplies, as well as a matching look for the craft fair booth. But this is a small first step.

A new item for sale in the shop! They are wood slices made of fine wool and hemp twine to hang on your Christmas tree or anywhere. They are $12 and would make a very nice gift for someone you like. They also come packaged in a drawstring pouch. Purchase one here.

Yay Anna Hurley! Anna and I have been pursuing a way of creating together for some time now and hopefully this will be the beginnings of a long lasting partnership of awesomeness. She has just put up her beautiful letterpress prints into our shop! If you would like to check out her personal blog, it is here.

I'm sure many of you have seen this already, but Studio Violet has a new batch of reused porcelain pieces that are going to be for sale starting tomorrow night. The illustrations are so incredible and the printing job on the antique porcelain pieces is perfect. Look how awesome!

goodness, it sure has been quite awhile since my last post. i have been working hard to try to find another means of making money so i can quit this job that seems to suck all the energy out of me. i think i am getting there. however, my focus has been on finding work so the crafts have not been worked on for awhile. until now! my sister and i have decided to do portland's crafty wonderland in (hopefully) october. i will not be attending, but my sister will be selling some items for me! as well as some of her own awesome creations. so now i have a deadline to work towards. here is a small first project. 1 inch buttons.

I bought this felted animal book at Kinokuniya bookstore in Seattle. There is also a Kinokuniya in Los Angeles, but it is much smaller than the Seattle one. I found so many books that I wanted, but I only got this one. I am hoping to find time to make some felted animals soon!
Also, my trip to Seattle was one of the best vacations I've ever had! I cannot wait to live there someday. When I find someone who has taken pictures of my sister's wedding, I will post those. The Tree House Point place was sooooo cool.

These are the coffee and tea bags I made for my sister's wedding using my gocco printer. It's hard to tell in the pictures, but the coffee bags are printed in a brownish-gold ink and the tea bags are a dark wine, purple-ish color. I hope she likes them!

A new project I'm about halfway done working on for my sister's wedding. This is what it looks like so far. I'm going to screen print these designs onto little bags as favors for her guests. The bags will, of course, be filled with coffee and tea. I will take pictures of them when they are done. Now to scrounge up some kind of good ink colors from whatever I can find...
