So I came home from 4 months in Italy on Monday, and it has been a whirlwind of activity since. I had all these ideas for new products and business ideas, I've been trying to do them all at once! I can't, but I did manage to get two new recycled sail wallet designs and up on etsy, and wrap my Christmas presents. Schweet.
In addition to my original tri-fold wallet, I created a simple clutch wallet and a bi-fold wallet with a velcro change pocket, because I'm so damn clever. It's really cool and you should check them out, especially if you are into green products.
I also threw up the prints that I did in my screenprinting class while abroad on etsy, to see how people reacted and gauge the interest. I had really wanted to do jewelry, but that class was full and I did Serigraphy (screen printing) instead, which was amazing and I'm so glad that I did. My first print was inspired from my constant drooling over Italian shoes but not buying because of need to buy food and my ridiculous size 11 shoe size.
Then I did a carousel piece that I had done in memory of my late grandfather who passed away in September. One of my most vivid childhood memories was of him taking me to the carousel, and in Piazza Repubblica in Florence there was a carousel that provided the inspiration. My last print was of the Duomo; I took a photo and seperated the colors in Photoshop to come up with the final image.
Check them out on my etsy site!!
