Handmade Brigade - Studio Ben Ben & Erinzam

Okay, this is a little late, but I'm gonna share anyways. I've been behind with the posts because of all the projects up my sleeves, but I have a little moment to catch up since the little one's off in dreamland.

I set up shop at the Handmade Brigade on June 6th. This time I had my own space and I wasn't crowding Ivy! I was a little skeptical at first because she usually creates traffic for me, but it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. The weather was on and off and for the most part windy. All in all it was a great day and I met some wonderful people along the way.

I was in super starstuck mode because I met one of my fave illustrators. His name is Ben Schlitter. I totally recognized his work when I saw his artwork.

I don't know how long ago it was, but I was perusing the internet and I stumbled upon his website and he has the most awesome icons and they're availabe on his website for FREE. So of course I snagged all of them and they've been on my desktop since who knows when. My favorite ones are the gift boxes.

Then to top it off, his wife is amazing! Her name is Erin and she shared the space with him because she is an artist as well. I totally loved her handmade booklets, but quickly recognized her "geekbooks." I saw them previously on a random blog and I immediately became a fan. Superly talented couple and don't forget to visit her website where you can go to her etsy site and check out her amazing artwork as well. I have my eye on a few already.

Stay tuned for more vendors...

Awesome, I love the zamrzla-schlitter's work. Wish I could have been there.
