Quirky, Colourful, Reclaimed

27 Jul

The legend goes that Katherine and Rebecca (the creatures of Honksville) first met in college where they studied art all those millions of honks years ago. Discovering they shared the same life long dream of designing and making dolls along with other curious creations to please the human race. They traveled to London to pursue their ambition. They soon found themselves lost and jobless in the city but after much idle chit chat and many many cups of tea, they came up with the idea of Honksville! EUREKA! They took some fabric to sew, ink to print and fluff for stuffing, and so the first Honksvilian was created and the rest as they say is history…

Deft

26 Jul

The word deft is defined as, “Quick and neat in action; skillful.” Ben means what he says when he describes his work using this single adjective. His work is deliberate, thoughtful and conversation-starting. Thanks for sharing your point of view with us, and causing us to spend way too much time contemplating whether or not triangles truly are our friends.

Hand-Made Cuteness

I am what you would call a “clean creative”…my first scrapbook had whole pages that where actually color coordinated and made out of sticky notes. I am in love with office supplies and I have all the highlighters in the world in order to make color coordinated labels, tags, cards, etc… My favorite drawing utensil of choice, a sharpie, Why? Because they make clean lines and that makes me happy! Simply put, a clean creative is what happens when you mix creativity with organization skills. That would be ME. I grew up with two very “clean creative” parents who have always inspired me to write, draw, paint…. dream. Scuttle is the byproduct of their influence, My husbands constant support & mad web design skills and of course my aunt who gave her the nickname Scuttle many years ago.
