NEST, your the best

Nestle up to this. Our Nest soft sculpts are starting to really materialize now. They'll soon be on etsy, really soon. They're already in a couple stores here in town and we'll be bringing them to a few upcoming shows. Details to come.

All alone.

On another note, keep your eyes open if you are in the vicinity of Bluebird Handmade on Bathurst or Love of Mine on Queen. A few sets of our NEST dolls have made their new homes there.

wooden scarves

Aside from printing piles of dolls, we are still developing the wooden scarves as promised. We want them to be perfect and have been testing our floorboard print on a variety of fabrics. Today we'll be printing a brown on brown and a purple on green version.

Softest wooden scarves ever.


We've been working madly on these plush sculptures of nesting dolls. This is a sneak peak.

We're still in an engineering phase. All the dolls are printed on the front so far and we've done a few mock-ups of what the dolls will be like when they're sewn. They still need their labels printed on the back and then we'll be sewing-stuffing-sewing for days. More soon...

"The Hey Now" concert that we printed Louise the Dawn posters for was last weekend. The show was great. Heavy turnout. Even Louise was there in spirit- and posted at the front door. Bassist, James Reid, was wearing our handmade teeth buttons on his guitar strap. Okay, you can't see them very well here. Look closely. See those tiny white blurs? You can just imagine how hot they looked. Good job boys.

The makings of "Louise the Dawn"

So a few days back we posted a work in progress shot of a poster we were working away on. The project was inspired by the song "Louise the Dawn" by The Hey Now. Charming bass-player James Reid found us at the Cabbagetown Arts and Crafts fair back in September and commissioned us to do a poster for their CD release party. Well, after a couple of long days, it's all done. Like it?

This good lookin' poster will be on sale at the CD release party taking place this friday at the Central.
The Hey Now for details and some sweet tracks. See you there okay?

Also check out some of the progress shots. This is how the magic happens.

Edition of 70... no drying rack. You do what you gotta do.

Sneak Peak!!!

We are super excited about these floor board babies. They will be up in our etsy store soon... very soon.
