If you are an opportunist...

You will probably want to stop by the store, throw down a couple 20's and take home one of these lovelies home before they are gone...

...ANNND THEN come get your  portrait taken in the love booth, write a love letter and and we will mail it out to yours truly in honor of the junction design crawl (tomorrow 7pm - 11pm)


Design Crawl Crafts- Love Those Wacky Victorians

You'll be seeing a lot of this little birdie in days to come.  Have you looked up your addresses yet for the Junction Design Crawl? Does anyone else feel this resurgence in popularity of Victorian imagery?  This doesn't look Victorian to you? Just you wait until dicky bird gets decoupaged (the victorans were wild for decoupage btw) onto the LOVE BOOTH. Ooh baby! See you Friday night XO

LOVE BOOTH: Get your postal codes ready!

Remember last year's Junction Design Crawl?
This year come prepared with your crush's mailing address, here's why:

I'm teaming up with Phillipa C Photography again for another photo booth with a twist! This Friday night get pretty and come to the Junction and have your photo taken in the LOVE BOOTH<3 <3 <3
It's going to look like this test shot, but with pretty Victorian decorations by Leah Fay Goldstein.  Once your portrait is taken, we will give you a numbered envelope that you will take to the letter writing station (ooooh) fill out the envelope with your lovey's address and a love letter if you chose. Phillipa C of  Postmistress fame will develop your portrait and mail it off with your letter. Could it possibly get more romantic? See you all Friday at the Design Crawl!

Late night crafts on Keele

Sorry for crummy photo quality but iphone plus instagram at night does not a good photo make... BUT look at us go! Getting ready for the Junction Design Crawl next Friday night if you can believe it! Now I have to go because people keep walking through the paint, if you are in the Junction tonight, I'll be the one on a lawn chair infront of the shop literally waiting for paint to dry and telling people to get off my property.

I Love Design Crawl

Phillipa C and I are collaborating again for this years Design Crawl and we FINALLY came up with an idea today (the Crawl is on the 24th so that's pretty embarrassing). I think we will keep it under wraps for now but I WILL say that we are doing something involving photography based again and it's based on this image:
In case you need a reminder, this is the awesome paper moon photo booth we did last year:
