Common Scents!

Vivi Dot hair accessories and earrings are now available at Common Scents in Noe Valley (San Francisco)! It's an awesome little store that's been around since 1971! It's filled with amazing bath products and a wonderful selection gift items as well. Seeing all the great stuff they sell made me really excited to be a part of it.

I had the pleasure of meeting Jan (the store buyer) at the Noise Pop and Shop event a few weeks ago. She's a huge sock monkey fan so my sock monkey fabric items caught her eye right off the bat. Jan has an infectiously upbeat personality that I can’t say enough about. I went into the little shop this past Wednesday and Jan picked out some things to try out. I received the nicest email the next day thanking me for bringing my things by. She even sent me a photo of where she put my things in the store!

Bottom line: In addition to an amazing selection of bath and gift items, Common Scents is worth a stop for the employees alone!

Shop Info:
3920 24th Street
(between Noe St & Sanchez St)
San Francisco, CA 94114 (415) 826-1019

Jan is also an artist and will be having an art show featuring her paintings of sock monkeys later this year. I'll post more information as I receive it!Pin It

You're Invited to Macau China

Harrah's Entertainment needed a special keepsake invitation to send to their execs that they wanted to invite to a training/leadership trip to Macau, China. I did some research on Macau and discovered there are some very strong ties to the lotus flower. I decided to tie this into the invitation and explain the relationship between the lotus flower and Macau in some way as well.

I made a paper lotus flower out of red card stock and really nice checked gold and red chiyogami paper. I also made a card to slip under the black ribbon with the Chinese character for lotus flower and the description of its connection with Macau on the reverse side.

The actual invitation sits nicely inside the gold metallic box. The circle invitation is folded into a rectangle and tied up with a thick black satin ribbon. Once you untie the ribbon the actual invitation is revealed.Pin It
