It's the Little Things :)

Here's a little out-take from the other day from a shoot I got to do with this lovely angel for the Spectrum Littles Collection. I just can't handle her cuteness! It just kills me.

P.s. This one of a kind little's white dress is now available to shop along with the headband and fawn necklace! Check it all out on the online store! 

Creating The Littles Brand





I've been wanting to get back to my love of fabrics, designing and sewing for awhile but really didn't have a good reason to...and then a little spark was born :) The start of this new collection came with the news of Carissa (the lovely owner of Tusc Boutique, where you can buy Spectrum Jewelry) expecting! So with her contagious optimism and prompting I looked into if I could pull off adding a whole new line under the Spectrum umbrella. After a month of research, adding up the numbers, making lots of patterns and prototypes, and finding suppliers I decided to go for it. Time to add something new and I love creating new brands! 

P.S. If you are local to Wilmington the Spectrum Littles is now available to shop in-store at Tusc Boutique!! 21 North Front Street, Wilmington NC 28401:





I chose the name "littles" because that's exactly who the products are for! The sweet littles in your life :) From newborn to tot, there will be a range of pieces for your little luv.

As for the letter-mark, I wanted it to feel unassuming, soft, special, and personal. So I pulled out my ink, brushes, and a LOT of paper (because I hate my handwriting), and after many tries it came together! Twinkles and all :)




I want to offer soft, natural and sweet little pieces that anyone would love to put their little one in. I'll be using all organic buttery soft onesies, natural untreated kiln dried wood beads with natural dyes, and beautiful fabrics and trims that will make you swoon.



Keep your ear to the ground! Or to Instagram :) Follow @spectrumhandcrafted.

Ok, I'll give you a hint. If all goes well, in May. If you can't wait till then, pop in to shop the Littles Collection at TUSC boutique in Wilmington, NC on Front St. 

Dreaming Of Creative Spaces : Someday Studio

Ever have those days where you just can't find that ONE tool that you need or all your threads are twisted together, you can't get enough light, your work table would be sooo much more helpful if it was a yard longer or like had five of them, and you feel like your creative space is...well, spaceless? I am affected so much by what's around me and whether or not I feel like I have space to grow better creatively. When I feel cramped and cluttered in a space that's dark, I also feel like that creatively. So I'm hitting my dream board hard :) Therapeutic gawkings at white rooms filled with light and a wall full of organized tools gives a little more life to my creative aspirations. Hope your day is filled with light creatively and literally!!
