ICYMI October 13
It’s ICYMI time – Friday the 13th edition! (Cue scary music). So, of course, I’m going to immediately start talking Halloween. Check out our bevy of Halloween costume ideas for the little ones. You can find everything from felt masks and tails from Opposite of Far, to superhero and knight shields from Lovelane Designs.
You can’t forget about a Halloween card, or a card for that lucky person that just so happens to have an October birthday. Spooky selections available from Alternate Histories. And on the sweeter side of Halloween, you can find candy corn cards from Haven Paperie.
Parents, you really have no excuse not to dress up. Questionable Press has made it so easy for you with these woodcut mask kits! More designs are available in store. And I promise, they’re easy to put together (unlike all those things you probably just bought at IKEA).
Stop, collaborate and listen…
AC is back with a brand new edition. -Of cat calendars that is. Kate Funk has done it again, dressing up her main squeeze, AC the cat, in costumes to keep you gigglin’ all year long.
You know we love to bring you the local! Pocket scarves from Specifically Random are perfect for the on-the-go college or high school student. -The scarves hold your phone and have a place for your earbuds cord. -Easy listening!
Of course Haven Paperie made that Octobers card above. -And it’s probably one of my favorite cards right now. We’ve also been restocked with paper cut Indiana art from Geez Louise Designs. Since sport ball season is upon us, we thought we’d show you some of the “blue and white” flare we have in store -for the grown ups and kiddos alike.
And below, check out the vintage canvas map of Indianapolis from Cuyahoga Collective, framed perfectly with STiiCKS, magnetic poster frames from Well Made. It’s the perfect gift for that person wanting to make a subtle shout out to Indy on their wall.
It’s never been so easy to give the gift of Hoosier handmade!
Who knew bicycle inner tubes could look so good? We did. That’s Lee, our How-To and Meet Your Maker Blogger, reppin’ the long fringe earrings from True Partners in Craft. TPIC uses recycled bicycle materials to create this edgy line and we are absolutely on board with it.
A Few Of Our Favorite Things…
Megan took a little break from her crazy, busy job as our Inventory Manager to pose for me with some of her favorite products.
A past (but still kinda present) alt rocker, MK loves her plaid and that new pocket scarf can keep Megan close to her music (or podcast) on her phone. She loves adventuring and hiking into the uncharted Midwest with her boyfriend. -Which is why she’ll be hanging that Tree Hopper Toys adventure print in her living room.
Megan is also the type of girl who can throw on some lipstick and call it a day. -That’s me saying that, not her. But it’s true and I’m jealous of her single-step morning routine. MK is in love with our Aromi matte lipstick and pretty much every color looks good on her. Now you’re jealous too. I know. We can’t all be like Megan.
