The Clothes Line

The idea has been rattling around in my head for awhile, creating funky, cool graphic's for tee shirts.  After dreaming up a few ideas and finally setting them to paper, I have come up with 3 designs that I am very happy with. I am offering the Triniti;s Closet clothing line with tanks, tee's, long sleeve tee's and hoodies for women, along with a line of organic kids wear.  Stop by at under Triniti's Closet.

Everyone has a hard side. Everyone has a soft side. This Tattoo art design has both sides turned all the way up. Cute, sultry, playful, edgy, ballsy, relaxed, daring. Just pick a word and it works.

Eco Tip: Mothball Alternative

Did you know..
..Mothballs often contain a compound called para-dichlorobenzene? The reason mothballs contain this compound is because it is very harmful to moths.. but, guess what? This carcinogen you are putting in your drawers with your clothing is also very harmful to you!
A safer way to keep pesky moths out of your favorite clothing items is to buy sachets with the scents of lavender and cedarwood. Moths steer clear of these scents and you'll be one step closer to making your home greener.

SHOES...need I say more.

I have just discovered  Molly  the founder of Hydra Heart. Her mother taught her how to sew at a young age, and with the birth of her own daughter her love for sewing has flourished. She  provides quality handmade shoes and clothing. Each prodcut is constructed from an original pattern that was hand drafted by Molly herself. All products are vegan and earth friendly. Most materials are gained from renewable resources. I hope you enjoy Hydra Heart's products, I really enjoy them!  I have to say I think I am in love with this pair of shoes!!!

A crush on 2

I have a bit of a crush on 2 amazing woman ...

Crush # 1

Steph of Deconstructress created the most coolest dresses that started with sample wedding gowns that turned into Corpse Bride costumes back in 2004. She had so much fun with the concept, that she spent the next year collecting fabrics, dresses and other items to upcycle into unique costumes and interesting formal wear. Steph released her first collection of twenty costume dresses in 2005.  The name makes so much since: designs begin as several wedding dresses "deconstructed" to one and recreates a one-of-a-kind master piece dress. Now that's recycling big time. She also has many that are all original designs made from scratch.  The prices are great when you really think that they are a true piece of art.

Crush # 2
Natalie Chanin of Alabama Chanin! I've been following her via the internet for several years - absolutely wowed by her incredible designs, dedication to traditional handicrafts, impeccable personal style, and her revolutionary business model.

I wasn't aware of it when I first started Studio 23 6 years ago, but many of the philosophies that have shaped my business have been employed by Natalie, also. Alabama Chanin is built on green practices, and is dedicated to keeping alive the spirit of the female community, of hand sewing and home crafting. Her garment are breathtaking and worth every penny of the fair amount she charges. She shares her craft through workshops, her book, and has even made a documentary featuring some of her inspirations.
