Blue Pumpkin Corsetry: I’ve been making corsets professionally for three years now. I was studying the construction techniques and pattern manufacture for two, previous to that.
I really do believe that a good quality corset is comfortable and wearable. I also believe that a corset can be made for any occasion, not just formal or bedroom occasions.
I have made corsets for clients all over the World and for all manner of reasons. From underwear, to office wear and day-to-night corsets.
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.
Check out this teether for your little badboy (or girl) from EcoAyris!
Why settle for a boring duckling or ring shaped teether when you can get a grip on your teething pain with a much hipper design. This shape seems like it would be really easy and soothing for a teething babe, and lets face it, funny. Funny is important when you have been up all night with a teething babe, trust me. EcoAyris also has an adorable sign language “I love you” teether for peaceniks and those kiddos who are lovers, not fighters.
EcoAyris says these are made of natural maple, sanded silky smooth, without any finish added. They are filled with rice grains so they are also rattles, which is amusing to your teething tot. I find both designs totally charming.
There are few statements that strike me so bizarre. “I don’t cook.” One might as well tell me they don’t breathe. Or drink. Or use the restroom. If you do not cook how do you eat? I always want to ask, despite already knowing the answer.
For some cooking is a dreaded task; another chore at the end of a day already filled with them. For those people the advent of jarred sauces, loaves of bread in plastic sleeves and whole dinners requiring no more than a swirl or two around a skillet are sanity savers. For me they’re the bane of it. But I wasn’t always this way.
