EsQuisite Designs: New Ombre Heart

I own two etsy stores and one of them (EsQuisite Designs) makes wine cork hearts, letters, veils, etc.  The Ombre Heart is a new design that I came up with a while back and it has been FLYING off the shelves! =)

The creative process ;P~ Wine is always a necessity.

Knuckle Rings Have Arrived!!

I ordered knuckle rings from Etsy recently (post here) and they finally arrived in the mail!  They were so teeny tiny that I was sure they wouldn’t even fit.

I like them a lot.  I haven’t worn them or tested them out~ but just trying them on was adorable.  The service was fast, efficient, and I would purchase with the vendor again.

4 Gold Knuckle Rings from Etsy

I just bought these over the weekend and I’m so pysched for them to arrive!  I have fat fingers, so I didn’t think Knuckle rings would be flattering~ but I tried some on when I was in SF two weekends ago and well…they actually make my fingers look longer!  Go Figure.

Weekend Recap and Photodump

This past weekend was a rare one for me.  I had ABSOLUTELY no plans!!

Saturday Morning, Markel and I rode our bikes to Santa Monica and Venice beach.  It was SO MUCH FUN.  I haven’t done anything like this ever, so it was refreshing to do something new and spend the entire day sunbathing, eating, and relaxing on the beach =)

College Humor Video: The Fall of Pinterest

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Pinterest, online shopping, etsy and everything girlie.  This video is pretty damn funny as it makes fun of everything I love.  Listen carefully to the things they’re making fun of and if you’re like me, you’ll catch phrases of things you love being used as puns, weapons, and much more.  teehee

The Fall of Pinterest

EsQuisite Designs on Etsy

I started the EsQuisite Designs etsy shop about a year ago (my second shop) and it’s been quite a difference!  The items are larger and easier to make and I like that I get to do some of them with Markel.

These wine cork projects below have been our pet project/collaboration in recent months and it’s really been a blast!    We have been working together to collect the corks, create the letters, and make a gorgeous layout.    Markel is really the mastermind behind these and I’m nothing but a “gluer”.  lol   We’ve been getting feedback on the items that customers have received and it’s seriously been such a high!  They’ve loved the letters and the designs and have used it for their weddings and homes.

All the rad comments/notes have been so amazing!  I swear it brings us closer together as a couple and makes me excited to think that we have a lifetime ahead of collaboration~ if these little things can be so rewarding, can you imagine what bigger things are in store?

And a plus side???  I get to drink all the wine I want without judgement.  LOL  I mean…It’s a business expense right?  haha

Happy Monday Ya’ll!  If you have any thoughts about the letters, I’d love to hear from you!

Flower Girl Tutu Dresses from Little Miss Esther/EsQuisite Designs

I recently made tutu skirts and sewed them to white tank tops for a friend’s wedding earlier this month.  I was stressed to the max because I wanted it to come out perfectly!  I mean…it’s a wedding after all~  I scoured downtown LA for the perfect shade of tulle, the best ribbon for the waist band (in the exact shade of raspberry pink) and wahla!  Here are the final dresses:

I’m trying to figure out if this is something I should add to my Etsy store or only take personal orders from friends?  If I do sell on Etsy, which Store?  What do you guys think?
