Starting the New Year with a fever...

I've started the new year with a fever. Jimmy Page fever. I've been listening, reading, watching everything Jimmy this week and I'm not sure how I got here...

Lazy and Not-So-Lazy Summer Inspiration

Admittedly, the summer has given me permission to lay around with my pup, read some books, walk around with my pup and then lay around some more.

We Sell Kids Crowns!

Since the beginning of this crown project, I have been asked: "Do you do children's crowns?" As an irreverent brand, it was hard to know how to do the kid thing. If you search 'kids crowns' on Etsy, it's all felt and the number "1" for the first birthday. 

 

Testing, Testing...

Testing, Testing…we’re back.

Oh baby, it's been awhile.

Well, Instagram happened. Tradeshows. Those happened too. Many birthdays happened as well.

OH! And we changed our name. CROWNS FOR THE PEOPLE.  Isn't it better!?!?

Let's get back to it.

Best looking gift ever.

Imagine being surprised by a beautiful red box with a bow. You have no idea what it might be. You open it up. You take a moment...and you realize someone has sent you...a crown. Why would someone send you a crown? It's a great question. I'm guessing everyone in your life would be able to provide an answer.

Lately, crown designs have been flooding into my head. In some ways, the drive to create has the potential to turn me into a crazed recluse...

An attempt at fan art....

I have been planning this 'homage via crown' since i first saw the trailer of "The Grand Budapest Hotel" last year. 

Valentine's is over. Way over.

 

How did I spend my Valentine's Day? I did things like needle-felt this heart onto this piece of wool while watching House of Cards as my labrador slept beside me. Not too shabby, i guess.

Now, it's March 8 and Ive finally gathered all of my plans & news for 2014 and wanted to share.
