But I'm going to take a moment away from that and do a quick update, including my most recent additions to the tiny hat world. First off, my friend Kip celebrated her half-birthday recently (thanks to the sweet planning of her boyfriend, Brian) and for the occasion, I made what any half-birthday girl would want: a half-cake birthday hat.
More recently, I finished hats for my friend William's band Sleep Creeps, which turned out pretty nice if I do say so myself. Two-fourths of the band donned them at their show at the Earl last Monday, and the entire crew plans to wear them at an upcoming gig at the Cabbagetown festival this March.
Other noteworthy moments of the past couple of weeks include: Antony & the Johnsons at Variety Playhouse, Tim & Eric Awesome Show, finally getting my new glasses and most importantly, last weekend's awesome photoshoot for Abardis, Christy Petterson's amazing line of earrings and barrettes. Below are a few sneak peaks from the shoot, which was conducted by the amazingly talented Meghan Mcneer, photographer behind my totes profesh tiny hat pics. I'm excited to see how they all turn out!
Lately I've been toying with the idea of branching out into new tiny-hat fabric territory, namely velveteen. This would up costs considerably but I could charge more for hats that would likely look more elegant as a result. We'll see if that ever happens....
Catch ya on the flip side, y'all.
