A few photos I thought I’d share from the past couple of weeks. It feels like fall, but the calendar says it’s nearly summer. I’ve been doing a lot of restocks to shops, and working on the design for my new website (that I hope to launch soon!). Lots of projects, as usual!
Glasses first, eyes second. That’s how everyone gets dressed, right?
Henry is really into gifting “white flowers” right now. These were my Mother’s Day present ; )
Trying out a full batch of Andy Warhol puppets. Really diggin’ this design, so I hope to have it online soon.
Our garden is officially in bloom, including this amazing (no-filter-needed) ombre yellow rose.
And finally, I posted this video on Instagram the other day, but can’t resist sharing it here, too. Because Mad Men.
In the spirit of things you’re simultaneously in love with and a little repulsed by, I was floored to come across these rope masks created by designer Bertjan Pot. The project came about after a failed attempt at stitching together a large rope carpet– the material started to bow and curve, making it unsuitable for the floor, but fascinating as a mask.
The inspiration for the pieces seems to run the gamut– from African sculpture, science fiction, Native American weaving, natural coral formations, architecture. Even a bit of a spa influence with the cucumber eyes mask.
Suddenly spring is here, huh? Our lilac bush just burst into flower in the last day or so, and even on rainy days, it’s not the cold rain anymore– it’s the kind that bring breezes and the smell of mud and growing things. I think the season has been good for me. I’ve been feeling productive in the studio, and also finding time for yardwork and kid stuff and some other fun projects. Here are a few shots from Instagram over the past few weeks, in case you missed them.
Saturday workspace and list-making.
New Ruth Bader Ginsburg buttons. One will ship with every puppet from now on!
Daffodils getting ready to bloom.
Bringing back the Joan from Mad Men design to honor of “the end of an era.”

Every wondered what Ira Glass would look like bald? Here’s your answer.
