more trees

These are new trees that are now available in the shop. The first is actually a request from someone for another two trees piece (Two Trees - No. 3). The second is called The Bench.

I sent this order out the other day (yes, I know - awful picture!) and as I wrapped it I wondered if people really care what kind of presentation a package has when it is received. I love wrapping them so from my end that's a non-issue but I'm just curious to know if you pay attention to those types of details. Anyone care to comment on that? I'm just curious. What people may not realize when they receive my packages is that not only do I try to make them as presentable and pretty as possible I also take the time to select recycled paper and whatnot. Great presentation and eco-friendly is my motto!! :)

I got some Lara Cameron fabric in the mail! I can't wait to use it. The possible projects are starting to work themselves out in my head. Nothing as beautiful as these I'm sure!

Thank you for the continued comments and emails I've received regarding my little recycling project. I never expected such a response! It's actually encouraging me to come up with something else in the recycling department. This also brought up an idea I've had for a while of publishing a book of projects. I have so many in my head that it would be really interesting to put them on paper and share them. But just the idea of pitching a book idea to anyone sounds like an adventure all its own. I hope that doesn't sound too presumptuous or big-headed of me. It's just one of those things I'd like to do someday.


  1. Packaging is uber important. Like, an extra reminder that the person you are purchasing from really appreciates you. I'm a sucker for good packaging!

  2. Beautiful new work! Can't wait to have one in my home! =)

    And I think the packaging is very important...but you knew that, right? ;)

    I would love to see you publish a book, it would be a big hit for sure!!

  3. When someone puts some thought into the presentation I really appreciate it. It's not necessary, but I always love it when the extra care is taken.

    A book sounds great to me.

  4. Personally, I really think it's important.

    You know this, but a lot of times, packaging sells the product.

    I love how you package up your stuff. It's really understated, simple + elegant. I'm sure people remember when they get your stuff :)

  5. I can only hope that package you're talking about is mine! It looks so clean, understated, and elegant that (if it's mine) I'm leaving it as is for my brother's birthday. It actually reminds me of how the shops package items in Argentina. Each purchase is wrapped in specialty paper with a discreet store label affixed to the front. Bliss!

    And I think packaging is very important. It's an indication of the caliber of merchant with whom you are dealing.

  6. Thank you are all too kind! :)

    Yes, Julieta the package is yours - It's on its way! :)

  7. Yep totally agree on the packaging thing. I love opening a parcel and having a bunch of little business cards tumble out or an extra little treat. I'd love to do something like that for my fabric packaging.

    On that note, so glad you liked the fabric in person! Thanks for metioning it here and for the lovely pic (other people's pictures are so much fun).

    P.S. - love the park bench addition - very cute.

  8. Not only the packaging is important, but it's even better if it's eco-friendly too! That's juste the cherry on the cake!

    Oh, and I'm in love with your work...

  9. I love your packaging! It compliments your work perfectly. And heck yeah, you should pursue that book idea! You have some great ideas that should be shared with the world! :-)

    Also, can't wait to see what you do with Lara's fabric, I love it.

  10. Thanks for all the feedback. I love hearing what everyone thinks about these things. Makes me feel less nuts about things! ;)

    Thanks Mel. I'll be sure to let you know the date the book is published! Ha! (if you say it, it will come?) ;)

  11. lovely! i pack up all of my things in matching tissue and yarn or ribbon and postcards from my store. it may not matter to some people, but i think that it really makes people feel spoiled, as well as showing that you really take pride in every aspect of your work.

  12. These are so beautiful! What sort of material are they made of?? And yes, I notice the way things are packaged. When I receive a package that I know was created with thought and care, I almost don't want to open!!
