San Francisco Bazaar

Posted by on Dec 9, 2014 in BLOG | No Comments

What I love about the San Francisco Bazaar is that it’s a truly local show. When you go and spend money there, you’re supporting your own community. I’m really pleased to be doing this show and look forward to seeing you there.

Renegade Craft Fair This Weekend, November 8th & 9th

Posted by on Nov 4, 2014 in BLOG | No Comments

Yeah, I’m stressing the hell out. I’m sick and I’ve been subbing as a secretary to try and make ends meet for the past few weeks so I’m behind on everything, in all the ways. I know it’s going to be fine but I just don’t have time to write more. Please note that this time, Renegade is taking place at Fort Mason.

Research Field Trip

Posted by on Oct 15, 2014 in BLOG | No Comments

I went to take pictures of houses for a new design I’ve been working on (which if you follow me on Instagram, you already know about). It was late-August when I went on this field trip and the main reason I finally made it out to another neighborhood was because I was sick to death of wandering around in my own neighborhood. I needed out, so on a whim, I set out to the West Portal station and wandered around from there. It was grey and foggy. It was perfect.

This was the house I ended up using as my model for the design.

I knew this house wasn’t the one I wanted to use but I had to take a picture because c’mon look at that color coordination.

house topiary

The topiary bushes out front were just what I was looking to add to my design.

The details on these houses are all a little different and I loved getting to take note of them.

That garage door, right?

Two Events This Week

Posted by on Oct 7, 2014 in BLOG | No Comments

I can’t believe that October is here already. It’s nuts! My last appearance at the Mission Community Market for 2014 is happening this Thursday, October 9th. The market continues year-round but I’m too much of a wimp to stand out in the cold all winter. Here are the details:

Mission Community Market
21st Street at Bartlett
San Francisco, CA 94110
4:00 pm – 8:00 pm – FREE TO ATTEND
The Heated will be there October 9th for the last appearance of the season.

I’ll also be at the Urban Air Market in the Lower Haight this Saturday, October 11th. For once, I’m sharing a booth with someone and we’ve been joking about how luxurious it will be to take a bathroom break. So, come on out and see how happy that makes me. I’ll be in booth 42E, halfway between Fillmore and Steiner on Haight Street.

Bay Bridge Dish Towel Ready To Go!

Posted by on Oct 1, 2014 in BLOG | No Comments

Sure, there’s a new span of the Bay Bridge that I could be celebrating but personally, my heart belongs to the old span. Part of that is because of the Bay Bridge Lights, which, if you haven’t seen yet, you definitely should. Anyway, on the 4th of July I was out impossibly early on a bike ride and took a few photos of the Bay Bridge that I later used to model for my dish towel. If you want to buy one, do it!: http://www.etsy.com/listing/205584616/flour-sack-dish-towel-bay-bridge-in-grey

Here are images of the new design:

Here’s the image I used as a model. It’s the first time one of the research images I took for a project has any appeal as a photo. That’s largely due to the early morning sun, rather than my skills as a photographer. At any rate, it’s not terrible.bay bridge model photo

New Store In The Mission

Posted by on Aug 26, 2014 in BLOG | No Comments

It’s hard to believe The Heated’s dish towels haven’t had an outlet in the Mission for a few years now. Well, I’m back in! Wallflower is located inside another store (the awesome Carousel Consignment) and features vintage and new stuff like clothing, home decor and of course, dish towels! You should definitely check it out. Wallflower is located at 2391 Mission Street (at 20th Street) and is open Wednesday through Sunday.
