LauPre Spring Summer Preview

May 20th, 2009

Want a peek at the items that will be popping up in my Etsy Shop this spring and summer?  I’ve been working on a handful of fun tops, skirts, and dresses that will all be posted soon, and I’ll be making new items all summer long.

Let’s take a look at tops first:


So far I’ve been working with mostly a palette of blues and greens in my tops, because I just love these colors for summer ’09.  I’ve been playing around with contrasts, and pairing solids with prints.

Blues and greens aren’t the only colors I’m interested in, though.  Take a look at this fab dress in red, yellow, black, and white.  The print fabric on the bottom of the dress and edging on the top is some reclaimed vintage stretch that I just had to give a new life to.  A row of bright red buttons decorate the deep cut back yoke. This dress is so lightweight and breezy it would be perfect for even the hottest of summer days.


Here’s another dress with a warm, fiery hue.  This one features crossing straps at the waistline and a tie in the back.  The bust detail is decorated with layers of overlapping printed knit fabric.


This dress brings us back to the greens, but with some fun details.  Allover stitched lines give this strapless dress a geometric and architectural quality.  A bow ties in the back for cuteness and fit.


And finally let’s take a look at skirts.  I’ve just gotten started working on these, but I’m excited to bring as many fun new ideas as I can for the new season!


Thanks for looking, and be sure to keep an eye out as I add all new items often!

Out With The Old

May 18th, 2009

Welcome Spring!

I’ve been doing some spring cleaning this week.  Clearing out closests, sweeping, dusting, polishing, and organizing.  Now I’m going to do the same for my Etsy shop.  I’m marking down almost everything in stock up to 90% off.  All coats, jackets, and capes are marked down.  Also take  a look at the accessories and long sleeve shirts that are now at all new low prices.  If you want them you’d better grab them quick!

A Photo Every Day

September 8th, 2008

Crafting and photography are two of my greatest joys.  On this blog I like to share the joys of crafting, but I’ve just recently started a photoblog, hosted on Aminus3 (Which I really like so far).  My twin brother and I decided to commit ourselves to taking a photo every day and posting it online starting on our birthday, Sept 6th, 2008 and continuing until at least Sept 6th 2009.  Taking just one photo everyday and getting it up online doesn’t seem like too much of a challenge yet, but I have a feeling it may get more difficult as time goes on.  The rules? For each day of the year we must take and post a photo for that day.  No cheating by using photos taken on a different date, and if it isn’t posted before midnight it is considered a fail.  We’ll each create a “Fail” image to hold the place of the missing image and it should stand out as show of shame for not sticking to the commitment.  At the end of the year we’re going to get all of the photos printed and put them all together for display.  I think it will be a lot of fun to see all the different things that caught my eye during the course of a year.

If you’re interested in checking in on my Photo-A-Day Challenge you can view my photos by clicking the image above or by following this link.  To see the photos taken by my twin, you can follow this link to his page.  Wish me luck with my year of photos!



Making My Mark

February 18th, 2008


I am excited to announce that I’ve created my own webpage!

The page is still in development, I’m doing it all myself and learning as I go. Css is tricky! I’m working hard to get new stuff up, though. Recently, I added info to the About me page and wrote up a bunch of information about making custom orders including a page filled with questions to get you started. Next I’ll be working on photo galleries of some of the fun things I’ve made or sold and my featured items, so look forward to it!
