Do Tornadoes Get Names?

I am guessing a workshop that looks like this won't get featured in any magazines any time soon. But folks, this is where I spend about 14-18 hours of my day. Usually with some kind of giant drink (lots of water, cranberry and lime juice these days,) a dirty apron and the Loretta Lynn Pandora station playing. I love my little space, it feels worked in, lived in, and used daily. You cant see them in this photo, but there are huge windows on the opposite wall. 
I love peeking into maker's shop spaces, especially when they haven't been cleaned and primped for a  fictional magazine-esque work/life. Also, I secretly love to believe that everyone is as messy as I am. I am like a tornado covered in paint and wood dust and bright blonde hair strands everywhere I go. But it works for me. When I organize my space, I can't find anything, I get frustrated, and make an even bigger mess. It's just the nature of this beast. 

We have made so much progress this last week, and are slowly and surely shortening the turnaround time on our sunglasses, which is awesome as summer gets closer. We also have some new Heart sunglasses that I am seriously in love with... They seem so classy to me. Are heart sunglasses classy? I think so. 

You can also now get the summer club in all walnut, which is pretty cool. 

HEY! Also, did you see the amazing job Kaelah did designing my blog? Like seriously, it's the most amazing thing I have ever seen, and matches me so freaking perfectly. And, the really neat thing is that she's all caught up on orders, so she can redesign your blog too! Yeeeeeeah!

Back to work!

  2. I definitely think your shop needs to be featured everywhere! I love it. You are so devoted to work, 14-18 hours whew. The new design is great- so simple and easy to use. I recently redid my design too and it feels amazing when everything is up and running correctly.

  6. I love your space! When I see photos of studios that look all clean and tidy I'm like PFFFT AS IF. If you're working hard there is no way it would be that tidy! Haha.

  7. Your blog looks fantastic! I wasn't sure if I landed at the right place at first cause it's so different but it so so so great! My mom is the same way about the organization...she says her mess is an organized one where she knows where everything is. I am so the opposite. I need to check out these glasses!

  9. I love how she did your blog! I love the raw honesty of your workshop because seriously, nobody works in a clean & tidy space if they wanna get anything done. I destroy spaces as soon as I get near them. It's ridonkulous. But yeah, heart sunglasses are classy shmassy!

  11. Your re-design is SO great!! I love peeks into peoples work spaces as well...who cares if it's worthy of magazines or not, unlike most people you actually DO work in your work space, not just typing on a computer.

  12. yes, i agree, everyone is messy in a TRUE studio or workspace, i guess it just comes down to who isn't afraid to admit it! i used to get jealous seeing super organized and so clear they're almost sterile workspaces, but now i just think, "it's pretty, but i bet they don't actually work there if it's that neat and clean."

  13. I loooooooooove the new look of your blog! So awesome.

    Your workspace looks great! Getting to check out the spaces where people work is just so interesting to me. & I love it when they're messy! ;) Because I am sooooo freaking messy. Well, I just manage to get lots of clutter everywhere, haha.

    Loving those new shades!
