Exciting news!

Ive been so busy! my head is spinning in circles and focusing is becoming harder and harder as i have so many projects going on all at once. But i wanted to take a minute to share some exciting news.
Justin gave me my birthday present last night, i always know he is up to something when i dont get a present on my birthday, this year i didnt even have time to think about it. But last night i was informed that i am the proud (and excited) new owner of This is a pretty big deal, i didnt think i would ever be able to snag it, someone has been hoarding it for a very long time, and he was finally able to strike a deal with them after a year of trying to get straight answers out of them. He kept this all a secret from me the whole time, and refuses to tell me how much he paid for it.
what a sweet man! so there you have it. I am beyond excited about this!

Also here are some cute little mushrooms i made for a wholesale order not too long ago :)

After i did the last blog post about giant giant giant giant sequoia this morning (see below) christina and i got started on my next installation that will be shipping off to the burrito gallery in jacksonville along with the big big tree and various other tree things. all of this needs to ship aout in about 2 weeks. its clearly not done yet, but im so excited about it! everything is looking soooo pretty. its pretty obvious what the next step will be.

Day 2 & 3

ALMOST DONE!!! just have to build a frame and attach the back! Every thing went really smooth until it came time to attach the leafy parts to the trunk. Christina and I went up to baby cakes to use the industrial sewing machine to do this since it would be pretty much impossible to run it through lil ol' betsy. This turned out to be much harder than expected, but after some blood sweat and tears (ok there was no blood, but there was definitely sweat and almost tears) we got him all stitched up.

So here is some lovely images on my new friend, giant giant giant giant sequoia. he is still flat right now, but he wont be for long!!!

Day 1....

Helllllllo everybody. Today was day one of giant giant giant sequoia's construction. His Trunk is officially in existence. I was so nervous before i started but now i know it is going to be ok. My sewing machine didn't really like it very much, i did break a few needles, but its a small price to pay for the awesomeness that this tree will be when he is done. i think he will be done, minus his frame tomorrow.

I enlisted my lovely friend Christina to come and help me get all of this under control. She flew all the way from my home town, Jacksonville (Florida) here to los angeles for the week to help me. It has been so awesome to have some one to bounce ideas off of and get feedback from. Christina is just getting her Etsy shop underway, its still in its setting up stages but i know what shes capable of and it will be awesome when she has is stocked :) you can visit her shop here.

So here are some images from todays very serious craft session.

I had a photo of mr. giant sequoia printed out on a large format printer to use as a pattern. I know what your thinking, wow what a great idea! yeah...... i know ;) it wasnt my idea. it was justin's. freakin brilliant.

So, we shall meet again tomorrow big tree, and i will finish you once and for all.........
