ponder and stitch

i absolutely LOVE these hand sewn bracelets from Ponder and Stitch. They are dainty, delicate, and downright awesome. I am not sure if she uses interfacing, but there is definitely something between the layers of beautiful fabrics that gives these bracelets shape.
The double stranded style is probably my favorite. But I'd even like to see these in single-strand. I just cannot believe how cute these are....

i am thinking i need to research endcaps a bit and here are some articles i found so far. I love that i have a whole end cap for my wonderful goodies at the co-op. Now, I just need to deliver a better display to them...
articles:
"design a great endcap"
"New Super Market Design" by Christian Campos
And I found this cool Natural Foods Merchandiser site that has been very interesting...

jade scott.

i am currently sitting here gushing about how amazing these pieces are! I wonder which one i should get? I love the earrings the most, but it is no wonder this amazing etsy seller has over 1,000 sales. her photos are so sweet, and the fabrics she encases in oxidized copper make for a very special treat. i even found one pendant that i used in a skirt many years ago. that may be the one i have to get!
thanks to jade scott for all of this amazing inspiration!

uncommon kid UK

These items are absolutely ADORABLE. This seamstress spares no quality when choosing fabrics for her creations! These insanely cute designer cottons are the perfect match for the minky fabrics used on the backs of bibs and blankies. These to-go sets are also cute, which feature a changing pad, bib, place for diapers, and more. I love their little UK tags too! They really set the whole feeling off with high-quality everything. Please visit Uncommon Kid ASAP!!
