I consider Mailbox Bliss, and Sarah Reed Photography part of my Frankenstitch team for with out you Frankenstitch could not be what it is today. I am so thankful for these girls all of them do top notch work and work at lightning speed, which is just a win win situation!!

In this blog I would like to show off some of the new monstas I've been talking about creating with all the great new supply product I purchased back in October on In the past I had only purchased finished product and our wedding rings from this site, but lately I've been searching for everything, and most of it's there!! I am pro etsy to the highest power never had a better experience purchasing merch.

So getting to the show off part.......

Wednesday I took my new crew up to Sarah Reeds Photography Studio downtown Flint so convenient about 1.5 blocks away and dropped the crew off for a couple of magic filled hours and she hooked me up, her eye's amazing  with my merch, she loves what she does and it shows!!

New business cards by Katie Cawood owner of Flint Prints

So earlier this week I received an email from a friend wondering if I'd like to swap monstas for design/printing services- 1000 super fly glossy double sided business cards usually I use my cousin Miss Bliss who is equally as fab and speedy(link bottom right of blog)!!! Seeings how Miss Bliss just got engaged and is super busy, I felt it was an ok plan to go ahead and update the cards this way and I'm glad I did the cards needed some serious changes- not visually but since the card was created I've been married and carry another name- new telly- new email- new blog and coolest of all the code to scan with a smart phone was added. I have always dreamed of having the actually monsta image incorporated on the card and only recently have I had excellent quality photographs brought to you by Sarah Reed Photograpy (link located bottom right corner).  Katie Cawood owner of the new Flint prints (link at the bottom right of blog) was able to give me the whole shabam!!

Katie Cawood owner of Flint prints plans to launch her new website January 2012 so excited for another local artist to live her dreams!! Katie was a dream to work with speedy and patient with my wants and needs, she made sure it was everything I was looking for taking time to swap out the different furs in the background to seek the perfect color- putting new images on taking them off adding new ones recreating 3 brains letting me select, I even requested 2 different fonts she was able to locate and hook it up........... till tadow, how you like me now!!

Gettin' to gettin' F.P. style

I've been super quiet and withdrawal lately- been in the sew lab birthing monstas right and left. So the fabrics and eyeballs made it to Flint town and let's just say they're amazing! I lOve the new digs Frankenstitch Productions will be sporting 2011 very fun bright and inspiring, if you thought my set up was bright before just wait it's even more bright meets texture explosion. I can't wait to show everybody. We are less than two weeks out from the Flint Handmade Holiday Craft Market so it's crunch time around this piece!!

I also got in some wonderful smelling local organic lavender from down town Flints new shop Stir the Imagination I made little sachets great for tossing into any area that needs freshening up.

Soon I plan on making mini monstas for the new bright plastic key chain rings. I also ordered up some squeakers which I can make dog or baby toys with...... haven't quite decided yet.

I think somebody knows mommas gotta sew- lol- go to bed baby all your friends are in dreamland....
Just so ya all know Frankenstitch is always open to new suggestions and if you want something special drop me a line---- at the bottom left of the blog there's a email me button :) I have also decided after 3 people suggested it that it would be pretty awesome to monstarize your child's art for a special one of a kind Christmas gift. Hope all of you enjoy the Holidays can't believe they're almost here!!

This event should be big fun, I haven't missed a one, and they've all been fantastic this ones suppose to be the best yet............ can't wait!!

The lumber jack

So recently I created a new style plush like the well dressed plush in fancy little pocketed dresses (for secret treasures) I created one that may just appeal to a little dudes...... Or Awwwisss Mae- ha!

So after a long nights sewing and not hiding the stash of half way created monstas Awwwisss Mae laid eyes on the newest F.P. Member.... The lumber jack a.k.a. Daddy - lol. She let's me know, oh yeah let's me know I am not selling him cause it's her HER DADDY and it's all she wants for X-Mas?? What? (Your 2 I think) so yeah he's hers - I haven't even finished his ensemble - needs boots- ax- vest and collar, Olive gets a little freaked I'm gonna take him and sell him if I talk of clothes for him- so meet the lumber jack- more to come in time - but this dudes just for show ;)

Halloween Shenanigans

Awwwwiss Mae- translation Olive Mae in her Olive burger suit ready to get some candy loot. Olive and I hit up the streets for candy round 5:15 and finished round 7:45 - this babes a trooper I made her walk nearly half of that time, trying to balance out the ingestion of mass quantities of red dye and yes it helped- she fell out round 9:30 oppose to her regular 11:30 routine she's worked herself into. After she passed out momma weeded out the red dye and shuffled the candy pieces into a separate bowl for her sissy Kami who is not at all affected by red dye. Olive had a blast this year the candy givers houses were well spaced out this year which made for a nice little work out. Hope every one had a safe and Happy Halloween!!
