nism: Hi, I’m Nathan Stapleton-McKinzie. I’ve always loved to draw and paint. I studied painting for a while in Carbondale, Illinois. From there I spent some time Upstate New York where I was represented by the Varga Gallery. At the moment I am working as a Freelance Designer/Flash Animator and living in the Windy City of Chicago. I love coffee and working on art late into the night.
Who says boys can’t be cute? I have 3, and they wore these shirts from Super Sweet Creations all last fall and winter for Thanksgiving, Christmas parties, birthdays, and other special occasions. I love having an outfit that gives a nod to a formal event, but is made by someone who clearly understands that kids aren’t miniature adults.
Valentine Vixen: The time and love that goes into each item, shows. I only use high quality fabrics and trims, and I try to add that “little something”, in details like, lace edges or ribbon bows.
Jenny Karlsson has a great shop full of one of a kind bags and accessories. From the wintery photography, to the carefully selected fabrics, I dare you not to purchase something from her.
Bio: I’m a Swedish lass who loves to create things.
I like to laugh and to feel and to find wisdom. I love trees and plants and birds and nature in general.
I have always been making things, and now a days it’s more of a necessity in life for me.
I easily get stuck in shops selling fabrics, yarns and beads. As well as vintage & second hand shops…
I like old things.
Jenny Karlsson Design makes handmade accessories with the aim for ‘feeling before fashion’ and individuality, uniqueness & quality is very important. I make each bag & item from scratch, I never use a pattern, except the ones I keep in my head. :) Each handbag is unique and marked with an embroidered number.
Bags range from $35 – $65, and if you see one you like you’d better grab it, because they’re all one of a kind.
