So my friend, Cyndi Coon, is a making, blogging, artsy, craftsy, chefy, supah-stah. She’s a writer, designer,promoter of all-things-craft, a marketing whiz and all around cool person. I adore her and have done so for a long, long time. She is a real, live human– real the way you wish everybody could be. You can see her blogging about craft here and here and visit her website here.
Now, I’m no dummy…and I can see a good thing when it is staring me in the face. I saw one of her tutorials for creating jewelry from old t-shirts a while back and I just couldn’t shake it. It is so good. So simple. So fun and easy to make something that looks fabulous. I thought about her amazing and addictive T-shirt Yarn jewelry tutorial and collaborating with her somehow (read: vulturishly profiting off of her talent and/or promoting and supporting her by publishing and selling her pattern so we can both become rich beyond our wildest dreams off of recycled t-shirts.) And I just had to ask her if she’d like to be a guest designer for SUCH Designs. To which she said yes. So, SUCH Designs’ two newest patterns featuring Cyndi’s designs will be coming out in the next two weeks! These are kits including the items you need to create your own jewelry and hairwear. Check back at my etsy shop to buy yours soon!
I will give you a sneak peek of our incredible…nay, words-cannot-describe-the-greatness photo shoot with the mind-blowingly talented photography duo behind www.jillandjill.com (Jill McNamara and Jill Richards or rather, Tall Jill and Short Jill, as they call themselves.) In an effort to promote all the people I adore, let me just say: hire these women to photograph your life, your business, your kids, your house, whatever…just do it…you’ll be glad you did.
So, Cyndi wrangled up some models (who are not models) by simply putting out a call to her friends on Facebook. Little did we know that we would get the three perfect girls on the perfect afternoon with the perfect photographers with the best T-shirt Yarn jewelry this side of the Mississippi. Allow me to stop writing so you can see the splendid fruits of that day.
I am so excited to do this project!!! 🙂 🙂
