I know it’s been quiet on the blog for the last couple months, But more on that later this week. The amazing Jared DeSimio has just about a week left for his first ever KickStarter. I met Jared and a small craft show when Matt and I first moved to Maine. He is just the sweetest guy, and so is his family, and his creations are truly one of a kind! Using mainly found materials, like vintage military duffel bags or reclaimed denim, he designs and sews the most amazing bags for men and women. I can’t even begin to describe how freaking amazing each one is. Anytime I see him at a show I just want one of everything! So check out his kick starter and support an amazing maker from New England! My personal favorite reward is the Heirloom Tote or Messenger! Collaborate with Jared and breathe new life into a meaningful piece of clothing or old military uniform into a functional bag!
THE PERFECT YEARBOOK PHOTO and how to get it
Growing up my dad taught in the local high school (I’ll give a Sarah Palin style shoutout to Cape Henlopen High School). My favorite time of the year was when he would get the new yearbook and bring it home. I couldn’t wait till I would be in Highschool and have my very own yearbook. I loved the haircuts, the jordache jeans, the scrunchies, the senior superlatives, but most of all, I loved the senior will’s. I think i started planning my senior will On my first day of high school. I made mental notes of every inside joke, and funny memory so that I could have them immortalized in print for the world to see ( or at least everyone who coughed up $50 for a yearbook). I never imagined I could see what I would look like in yearbooks though out the decades, but today that dream has come true. I think most any of these pictures would look better than the one that has been engraved forever in my final senior yearbook. Now go make your own.
