Meredith Design

Posts Tagged ‘ornate

Yeah, I know. Cheap joke. But seriously, my rum is not gone. I have been totally slacking in connecting with my peers for merriment this season. On one hand, professionally and artistically I feel rather accomplished. On the other hand, I feel a little alone and left out, to no fault of my buddies. I just need to get back on the ball and balance these things out a little more.

Back to business, I uploaded a BUNCH of new hairpieces to Big & Blooming on Etsy. I’ll attach some on here and be sure to add any new designs to the kanzashi page here.  I have two questions though: #1. I was silly and didn’t choose the name of my shop until after I chose a different name as a screenname…and the shop goes by the screenname for the web address. Is this a problem? I’m thinking that once I get enough sales, I’ll make it a seperate domain name from Etsy, ie bigandblooming.com. #2. If anyone is local to me and is interested in a hairpiece, would you be interested in picking up the hairpieces from me if I refund you the shipping cost? I’d even be interested in chatting about trading and so on.

Again,  thanks very much to Jenna Kempista for modeling for me and even taking a couple shots of me!

Yes,  another kitty. For those of you that don’t know, I lost a kitty a few months ago who was very close to my heart. He lived a long happy life but now there was a hole in my life and I needed to fill it. Fast. I found Sasha on the side of the road on Kirkwood highway. The lot was next to a car dealership and she was really on edge but super friendly just the same. So I scooped her up, put out an ad for a lost kitty, and now she’s my Sasha.

Well, evidently one is not enough and my dad scooped up another ball of fluff today. They think they’re gonna call him Floyd…whatever. I’ll call him what I want. It’s not like they really pay any attention to what people call them anyway. Don’t they only hear the first sound? He’s loads more energetic than Sasha, however. He’s sleeping now…and that’s the only reason I can type. Otherwise he has to be on the keyboard, chasing my fingers.

On the the important bits. I added a few more pieces to Big & Blooming today.

That’s right, she does. Take a look for yourself. Click the image to go to Big and Blooming and see more of that piece and others.

Next time we’ll get crazier with the makeup and background… I promise. Hehe.

Imagine that! Not only are some ladies enjoying my hairpieces but I’ve even gotten a few commissions. Yay me! Just kidding, but I’m happy just the same. Below are a few recent pieces. The brown and blue one was supposed to go with her brown hair…that she no longer has haha. Oh well, she wants me to do a second one now so it all works out.

I think I’m finding more and more that when creating a piece for a specific person, if they don’t have certain colors they always go with, get them to show you an outfit they really like. It’s a lot easier to then coordinate with the outfit. The light blue, dark blue, and magenta piece was one such item I made at the last minute to go with a shirt I really like to wear at Otakon 2010. I learned so much making that piece. Trial and error, rinse and repeat. The magenta and aqua piece was my very first attempt at making the wisteria-like dangles. Ha ha ha…that one’s going to forever sit on my shelf as a reminder of things not to do.

Get excited… I finally did it! This shop will be dedicated to my kanzashi (that’s Japanese for hairpieces) and maybe some fine art giclee prints. It’s called Big & Blooming and I hope you check it out and pass it on. I’ll be updating more pieces in the next few days so be sure to check back. Below are a few I’ve added recently today.

With love – M
