Riight? I mean, on one hand I totally understand not having the spare cash to buy art, but also I should be able to charge fairly for my stuff. I just wish that people understood that it’s more about me being able to like…afford to live, and not about making something unattainable for them. Plus there’s a ton of things in my shop that are super budget friendly, so…

I have a handful of these limited edition tapestries left (I sewed 20 total but a few have already been claimed), they feature an original illustration I did of Sandhill cranes, wild thistles, and chrysanthemums. Hand drawn, then screen printed on canvas, heat set and sewn by yours truly. I’m going to be working towards doing more pieces like this in the future, hopefully even more detailed/refined. If you are interested in purchasing one for yourself, they are 40 plus shipping (a reduced price because this is something of a sample sale). Shoot me a message if you’re interested. The design itself is 17” by 30”.

Anonymous said: are you going to be releasing some more tshirt designs early fall? can't wait to update my wardrobe for this school year!
All kinds of new stuff for the fall! There will be new tees, crops, dresses, leggings, and cardigans…followed by some crew neck sweaters and hoodies. Also we have a collab lined up for waxed canvas backpacks, some cool new cast jewelry, and are meeting with pattern makers and a local seamstress to do a custom fabricated line later in the year that will include all kinds of cool drapey dresses and scarves and maybe some outerwear!

Anonymous said: Do you draw tattoos for people? I love the look of the stuff on your etsy and would like pay to have something designed in that style. Thanks <33
I love drawing tattoos for people, and wish that I had more space in my schedule to do so! I do have a couple of slots for illustration work open in the next month (due in part to the fact that I will be looking for things to draw while I spend a blissful internet free week in Canada), so shoot me an email at fennecdesign@gmail if you have a project in mind :)

It’s just a sneak peek, because I’m going to probably be napping for two weeks straight after all of this but here are some photos from my wedding ceremony this past Saturday. We worked super hard to DIY pretty much everything imaginable, and I couldn’t be more proud of the results. (all taken by my very talented friends With Love & Embers)

Anonymous said: where do you purchase your shirts for screen printing? I want to get started but I don't want to spend a bunch of money
We have a membership with a wholesaler who supplies a bunch of different kinds of t-shirt brands. But…it might not be the best sort of thing if you are just starting out. Most wholesalers will require you to provide a tax i.d. and additional info about your business. If you want to try screen printing but don’t want to spend the money, start with patches (the fabric is a great way to practice without spending a ton), pick up some blank shirts at a thrift store, or see if a local friend with a wholesale account who does larger scale ordering can order a small batch of shirts for you. Hope that helps!

Anonymous said: Did you go to college?
Yep. I have an almost completed BA in English Lit. I’ve been slowly finishing off my last 12 credits online over the past year (I didn’t want to go into any more debt so decided to take only the classes I could pay for outright at any given time). I only have 6 to go at this point and should be done by the end of the fall. I had taken a break before that because I was too sick to attend classes. Sometimes I wish I’d gone to art school, as it might have been more applicable to my current career path…but I’m still glad for the time I spent in school for reasons more related to maturing as a person etc.

Where do people buy fancy lingerie these days? I need to get a few extra special occasion kind of things, and have decided to spend a bit more than usual and I’m feeling a little out of my depth. I want something mind blowing but not like out of this world expensive. If it’s black, I will probably like it. eta: I’m looking for something in XS-S sizing. Suggestions?
