Etsy SHOP LIVE Event today, 7pm EST
We're psyched to be taking part in today's Etsy SHOP LIVE Event, curated by the wonderful Marichelle of Heart Handmade. Etsy is always surprising me with the cool ideas they develop to connect their sellers and buyers. SHOP LIVE is a live 30-minute shopping sale that takes place today starting at 7pm EST. Log in at 7pm and enter the Etsy Virtual Labs. Once in, you'll see this:

You can chat on the left with fellow buyers, and new sale products will come up on the right, 1 product every minute for 30 minutes. You purchase just like a regular etsy purchase, but at Step 4 of your checkout, you'll type in the promo code in the "notes to seller" section. To get the promo code, you have to be at the event! Pretty slick, no?

Our Heirloom Growth chart will be for sale, with 20% off!! We only have a handful in stock, so get 'em while they're hot. We're also excited about the other participants at SHOP LIVE, including some favorites like Mudpuppy, SusyJack*, Fern Animals, and The Small Object.

Summer Crunch + Sneak Peaks!
It's time for the summer crunch. We're knee-deep in new projects to debut this season, and getting ready for our first big show on the East Coast in a few short weeks. Miss Natalie is heading home to New York, and bringing Mister Benjamin and Nous Savons, too, for what should be a fabulous show. Sadly, this guy above will be staying home and catching up on his sun baths. Hawkeye's life is tough. I should have some exciting sneak peaks ready by next week, so stay tuned. We'll also be announcing our full summer show schedule, too, so you can mark your calendars.

And if you've been wondering why my facebook status updates always seem to involve a girl named Audrey, here's one sneak peak at another project I've been working on. I was raised on Audrey Hepburn movies, so designing this book has been pure pleasure. It's been a busy few months, with more to come!

Happy Mother's Day
Here are the three women that have shaped my life the most. Starting from the right, my mom, Tunt Aida, and Tunt Leila. They have challenged me, inspired me, taught me, nursed me back to health, and guided me my entire life. I love them and miss them so much today.

Rainy Weekend + Renegade Brooklyn

It's been a rainy weekend here in Oakland, so here's a little something to brighten the day. The Farmer's Market had strawberries, blueberries, and cherries today, which can only mean that summer is sneaking up on us already. How did that happen?

Summer is the high season for Miss Natalie, and we're finalizing our show schedule. To kick it off, we're gearing up for a trip to New York in June for the Renegade Craft Fair (6/6-6/7), our first East Coast show. It'll be nice to be back in Brooklyn with friends and family. More details to come on that, and a full list of our shows shortly.

Donna Wilson
The work of Scottish designer Donna Wilson always captivates me. Quirky, funny, and elegant. It makes me want a knitting machine and cashmere yarn.
