studious reflection.


So far, I feel that I'm off to a good start for 2011. I'm working on updates to the site [like the ABOUT, CONTACT and new BEING GREEN page]. The DOWNLOADS page is published, but I'll add some more over the next week. Also, I'm excited to launch the Cardinal House Nest Club this coming week too. After all this, I'll be working on updates geared towards retailers.

In addition to the site updates, I'm thrilled about the recent necklace designs and plan on working up similar pieces in various colors.

But enough teasers for now. Safe to say I have quite an uphill path ahead of me at the moment. One thing at a time for sanity's sake!

sneak peek. I LOVE this necklace!

Please, please, pretty please with a cherry on top 
tell me that I am NOT the only one digging this necklace! 
I really, really want to work up more like this design.  
Can you tell that I'm excited?! 

Sorry, it's just that the design is a bit more dressed up without being kitschy. You could find cabochon-set necklaces like this in stores [which is what I'm going for here]. And if only I was ready to produce look-books right now---so many great outfits to pair this design with!



Here are a couple other pretty pieces coming to the shop soon!

sneak peek.


Here's what I've been up to this week so far. I should be able to take more pictures tomorrow to get them listed in the shop

What do you think of the necklace above? I really like it & I hope others do too. I'm in the process of working on a couple different alternatives to my staple asymmetrical style.

Enjoy!

COMPLIMENTARY US SHIPPING now standard!


Introducing complimentary US shipping for all orders @cardinalhouse! 
-sorry Internationals, but I still have to wait in long lines at the understaffed post office for your orders. So no breaks for you just yet.

Also, above is the new standard packaging for the store. For now, I'll still keep some of the kraft pillow boxes on hand in case I have requests for a gift order. In addition, I'm transitioning to also recycle the paper-backed portions of the fabric book to use as backer cards [shown above].

As always, I make the stickers [cardinal-shape & circles] from recycling old wallpaper samples and magazines. And the fabric ties are also old samples that would otherwise end up in el trash can.

Well, what do you think?

studious reflection. diamonds in the rough.





My design A.D.D. & I have been playing with scaling down my rosebud earrings. The problem I came across was that sewing that much densely compacted folded fabric did NOT work out well with my fingers and MR Needle. Can we say ouch³?! 

So, I decided to try Mr Glue for these guys.  They're still sturdy-made & look great. It's just that my fingers don't look like nasty swiss cheese & I can't tell you how much I appreciate that! Plus, they're faster to make this way so the price comes down! 

The first pair's listed HERE

now that's a colorful cake!

Now I've seen some "basic" [hah!] rainbow cakes at local bakeries & on the web --including this one, but this one really *ahem* takes the cake [sorry, I HAD to]!


How freaking cool is this wedding cake?! Okay, so not for everyone, but well-matched considering it's for a head honcho over at COLOURlovers.com. Find the original post about the cake [including the recipe] HERE.


And isn't it so inspiring to adapt for your own use? Gradations of blues for el kiddo's birthday cake or think sports team colors...


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Happy baking!
