Last minute is how I roll, I know, terrible at announcing things – but if you’re in LA this Saturday night and looking for love in all the wrong places how about you come on out to SHOPCLASS instead and check out some of my CAMP goods and also shout hello. Come out for a party and for fun and for stuff.

FYI, SHOPCLASS is the newly opened retail coming together of three very fantastic folks, namely Ellen LeComte of Amsterdam Modern, Jeff Garbs and Sally Breer of Commingle Home. It’s amazing.

What are the details and where is this magic happening? Also, when?

CAMP (IS FOR LOVERS)

LOVE IS MESSY & SO IS THIS.

I’ve had it with trying to make everything CAMP line up perfectly to launch all at once in some sort of culmination of perfect perfection. I’m tired of talking about it, I’m tired of waiting – so screw it. Here’s a quick and dirty Flash Sale for Lovers.

Valentines day seems like a thing? Do you have a lover or something? Did you need a last minute stylish token of love that says hey, I like you and I respect you, but I want to do things with your body? Well, here are a few small baubles and bits to consider that might help you get busy.

For Her?

+ DAILY PILL NECKLACE 

+ EVERYDAY NECKLACE

For Him?

+ LEATHER KEY STRAP

+ SALTILLO PILLOW 

This small batch of things in limited quantities will be available through Friday. Domestic shipping only (sorry), but hey, it all ships for FREE in the US. Orders will be sent out Friday/Saturday and will arrive to you before the 14th.

Also, everything comes with neutral packaging to keep things tasteful?

Maybe someone stylish you know needs a few good basics for everyday living?

Maybe its time to treat yourself? I don’t know!

Thanks to everyone for putting up with all this CAMP crap. It’s been all consuming and I know the blog and house have suffered. Wait, does anyone read blogs anymore? I don’t know! I’m terrible at blogs! I need a girl to model my necklaces because Jeremy just looks silly! I am surrounded by dudes! Someone remodel my kitchen! I hate my pink tub and gross bathrooms! My dining room is a messy workshop! My life is chaos! The dogs are making me crazy! Weeds are growing out of control everywhere! Teenagers are loud and disrespectful! Hemet is a nightmare! I want a forever lazy!

Happy V-Day.

 

PILLOW TALK

2013 feels so 2012 and not like the future at all.

Apologies for looking and sounding like a broken record, but I haven’t had many ‘blog-able’ ideas or much time to work on or even clean up the house. Sorry about that house, all my supplies are piled everywhere and my brain energy has been consumed with getting the CAMP shop running and not with your maintenance. Also, you look awful. Perhaps being ambitiously naive, I fully expected to have been launched and chugging along with everything about mid January; despite certain obvious clues like say this half decade long and ongoing renovation. Unexpected material delays as well as tackling peripheral details like packaging (oh yeah, duh) have pretty much made a mockery of my plans and pushed things back.

So, February-ish. Lets say then?

In the meantime, I’ve been stockpiling vintage textiles and making pillows with much help from my sister. Above are a few samples of the latest Saltillos as well as a peek at the Ruffian, a pillow made from vintage surplus army canvas with a rough cut and hefty surged edge detail. Yeah, it’s a pretty manly pillow.

BEA BREAK.

OK, I am a one woman tornado of making things and interweb wrangling, but hope to be back working on the house and posting better stuff here soon.

In the meanwhile, any sweet advice / tips for the CAMP shop (our independent retail in general)? What do love / hate when you buy stuff online? I mean, like I despise loose packing peanuts but love opening things which are ready to use immediately (*basically not needing an extra pillow insert, special bulb or whatever in order to start using it).

Anyways. Thanks.

I can’t tell you how much I’ve been loving designing and making everything and how completely impatient I am to get this whole thing rolling.
