Holiday Happenings

I had an amazing weekend at Bricolage for Small Business Saturday! Thank you to everyone who came out and supported your local handmade community!

I have two more fabulous shows going on this weekend at Wintry Pop-up Shop in downtown Boise and the Boise Christmas Show at the Expo Center. 

THEN I'm off to CA for a week to visit Renegade LA and do some Christmas shopping before I settle down for a long holiday with the family. Look for my new 2015 wholesale catalog to be released before the new year thanks to my great friend from Picture me Pretty. I've also been working on some new designs I hope to feature this spring on Etsy.

Don't forget you can shop lost little things year round at some great local stores in Idaho and Texas. For a full list click HERE.

Happy Holidays Everyone!

ExtraOrdinary Things Start Small

Join myself, lost little things, and Bricolage for a special Small Business Saturday event downtown Boise. Etsy has partnered up with American Express to give small businesses a chance to win money towards a shop makeover with Rue Magazine by hosting a handmade truck show with a local Etsy artist.  We will have special Idaho and holiday themed gifts, food, crafts, photo booth, goodie bags and more!  

RSVP at Eventbrite HERE for a chance to win a door prize and help us win that shop makeover, then join us on Saturday, November 29th @ Bricolage, 418 S. 6th Street, Boise, Idaho.

Starting in 2010, the same year both Chelsea and I started our businesses, Small Business Saturday has helped celebrate what it is to be a small business.  By shopping small you help create jobs and boost the economy in your local community.

DIY Pull Down Map

I love getting creative with new ways to hang artwork. This little project was inspired by the old vintage schoolroom maps that make my heart skip a beat. I used one of my screen printed vintage maps and a couple lengths of molding stained dark. I simply trimmed the map and glued it to the wood, drilled two small holes and hung it with cotton string. A much more affordable mini version that fits great in any space!

If you wanted to get really creative & authentic you could use a golden eye hook drilled into the bottom center to act as a decorative pull hook.
