Products of My Suffering – Mousybabe Hand-Sewn Linen Bags

As I wasn’t allowed to eat today (see our last posts: Detox Post #1 | Detox Post #2), I busied myself with sewing so I wouldn’t think about delicious fried oysters or ramen or fill-in-the-blank with favorite food. These are the products of my suffering. More explanation to come on what exactly these bags are… Read more »

My New Wall of Accessories

Took a cue from Suzi’s February 9 post today and assembled my very own wall of accessories… to accommodate¬†my overflowing collection of belts, hair doodads, and hats. I did it¬†all with two simple tools: a hammer and some nails. It was a long overdue solution to organizing knick knacks that were starting to find themselves… Read more »

MOUSYBABE CLOSET SALE No. 1

I spent this past Saturday cleaning out a messy “storage” area in the corner of the kitchen which has been an eyesore for the last year. So much so that a little mouse appears to have taken up residence amid the mess! But I digress… I took advantage of my cleaning rampage to also finalize… Read more »

Why do I want this bag so much?

I just like it. Target $29.99. I can already hear Em telling me how lame I am. I already tweeted about the bag a couple days ago. I think I shouldn’t have taken a picture of it so that I see it every time I look for a photo to upload. (sad face!) It’s probably… Read more »

Stylelights!

Bizzle #1 (aka Em) with a new colorful stripey tank (bangin’ bargain alert: $7 Forever XXI) and baggy blue jeans that, um, aren’t supposed to be baggy but she’s got no meat to fill it. New York skyline in the background (priceless, haha). The necklace is the one handcrafted by our cousin Ellen, which we… Read more »

Fashion Find!

  My newest acquisition: a dress split between a deep burnt orange and mustard yellow, incidentally two of my favorite colors! From Zachary’s Smile in Greenwich. Looks like I got more out of my visit to the dentist this afternoon than a mouthful of clean, polished teeth

A Better Way to Keep Necklaces

If you’re like me, you rarely deck yourself out in jewelry unless it’s the bracelets and earrings you’re still wearing from the last event you bothered to dress up for. And it’s not that I don’t like accessorizing, I love it! But my laziness shows up in the strangest ways (for example, I’m too lazy… Read more »

Recycling Precious Fabric on an Old Bag

Recycled some fabric last weekend! Bam. and from an unlikely object… a beloved old purse that I’ve been reluctant to part with over the years, even though it’s become worn and ratty. Normally a little patina just makes my heart grow fonder, but somehow the design on this bag doesn’t pull off that threadbare aesthetic… Read more »

…aaaand that’s a wrap!

Crafty Bastards 2011 has come and gone. It was a wet one this year, but thanks to plastic sheeting and duct tape, we still had an amazing time! And special thanks to Kim + Sara of the Crafty Bastards crew for continuing to outdo themselves every year. Please note: We’re working on migrating all of… Read more »
