Join {me} at West Elm on December 1st

I'm so completely thrilled to be a part of the West Elm + Etsy Handmade Holiday Workshop and Mini-Market on Thursday, December 1st from 6 to 9pm at the Charlotte, NC West Elm store. I'm offering all my designs at 10% off, including custom orders, at the event. It's going to be so much fun selling my pieces along side these four Charlotte Etsy artists...

Here's a link to the national event on Facebook so you can add it to your holiday calendar.

Ever since I found out I was picked to sell my designs at the West Elm + Etsy Handmade Holiday Mini-market, I've been working on capturing my design process using stop-motion photography so I could make this fun little clip. I gave you a sneak peek last week, and now I've finally pieced it all together! From painting the screen, carving the block, and cutting the fabric to the printing and the sewing, I've captured hours of my design process in thousands of photographs and boiled it down to one minute. I even included three of the four incredible Etsy artists who will be selling their designs at West Elm event in the clip. I hope you enjoy watching the whole design process!!

 

 

If you don't live Charlotte, you can attend the Handmade Holiday event at your local West Elm store (if you have one in your city). It's a national event, but it's organized to promote local Etsy artists and support community charities.  

See a full list of all the fabulous Etsy shops selling their handmade items at one of 37 West Elm stores.

What fantastic news, Chanee! I wish I lived closer to Charlotte than to Chicago. And your Vimeo is outstanding! Enjoyed watching the process. Also happy that I now know how to pronounce your lovely name :)

Aw, thanks Laurie! You are so kind! Your note about my name made me laugh...I always forget that my name is spelled so weird and most people pronounce it wrong...for good reason!
