Crafts N'At 2010!!

Come see me (and other awesome artists) this Sunday, August 29th, at Soldiers & Sailors Hall (Oakland) for Crafts N'At 2010!!!! There's an amazing list of vendors, found here at the Pittsburgh Craft Collective blog!

Lunatique will be re-introducing the new and improved Rock Bottoms!!! Popular several years ago, Rock Bottoms return with a better design. Now all ONE-SIZE, Rock Bottoms are still made from the coolest band tshirts I could find.





I also hope to introduce my Rad Padz this Sunday! Rad Padz are new from Lunatique this Fall....mama cloth crafted in part from recycled tshirts. Comfortable, unique, edgy and eco-friendly!

Hope to see you Sunday! :)

It's been awhile since I've updated this blog. Sorry for that, if you're a reader. Seems I can't remember all of the places I have to post, update, etc. This summer has been busy! Lunatique was at the Three Rivers Arts Festival with I Made It! Market, which was fun! Then two weekends ago, we were at the SouthSide Works Exposted market, again with I Made It! Market.

While these markets are fun, I find that they are too time consuming and not profitable at this point. When you're spending more money then you're making, it's time to do something different! So, I'm choosing to focus on my online presence and to have my items in a few local shops around Pittsburgh. This will allow me to continue with my craft, while accepting that as a busy mama of 4 I just can't get out there into the scene at this point and really make it happen. I'm cool with that!

So, look for me online: on Facebook, at my new website http://www.lunatiqueonline.com/ (which is not yet complete), and if you're local I will be found at "SoMe" (www.somepgh.com) and hopefully the "E-House" (where I was before). I'm excited to be offering my Rock Bottoms cloth diapers, again; in a new and improved style and as a one-size diaper.

Thanks for reading!

First sale of the season in 5 days!

Well, the busy spring/summer season is about to begin and my sewing machine is smokin'!! I'll be at the South Side Works this Saturday, April 10, to kick it all off! I'm really excited by a bunch of new Little Lolis as well as a new pattern for bigger girls that I'll be introducing. Should be awesome!!!

Here are other sales you'll find me vending at this summer:

April 24, Pittsburgh Zoo Green Marketplace
May 8 & 22, Lawrenceville Little Flea
Mid-July, South Side Works Exposed

....and more, I hope!!!!

My focus this year is pretty much everything recycled Tshirts. I'm a little obsessed. I'm especially excited about all the little cool accessories I'm making from Tshirt scraps that will be seriously cheap and fun!

See you at the sales!!!!!! :)

Spring hasn't sprung, but Lunatique can't wait!!!!!

This winter I've been working hard to create better web presence for Lunatique in the form of my own webstore. My goal is to have a SUPER FANTABULOUS SPRING GRAND OPENING!!!!

In the meantime, I've been working on new ideas, patterns, and creations; while improving and tweaking some of the old ones. I am narrowing my focus and creating mainly from recycled tshirts. As always, I will continue to strive to keep my store eco-friendly and affordable, while creating one of a kind, unique products. As part of my commitment to the earth and living beings, I will be using a green web host called Taproot Hosting. I'm really excited about this. I'm also really committed to supporting small business; my webdesigner is an awesome friend and talented woman who owns Motherwit Web Design.

All of this awesome energy combined is sure to make this Lunatique's best year ever!!! I'm glad you're along for the ride!!!!
