Craft Fair Fanatic


As you guys know, the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft show was a few weekends ago. it was at the Philadelphia Convention center and in all aspects, it was wonderful. The customers were amazing. They had a phenomenal sense of style and were ready to try new things. My ladies were super excited about this collection. The standout pieces of the show were the Abscission top and the Mylan pants. I think it is because they matched the bold and experimental style of our customers. AS far as the physical show, it was better than ever. I want to thank the producers of the show for inviting me. The artists really stepped up their game; so much beauty, so much innovation. I would say this has been the best show so far for the PMA. 

As you may or may not know, the Chicago Show is coming up very soon! Chicago's One of a Kind Craft Show is going to be December 7th to 10th. I am so excited for this show! It's going to be another amazing event for everyone. Since all the vendors have pushed themselves so much, I have to be on top of my game as well. Therefore, in honor of One of a Kind, I have made very special "one-of-a-kind" scarves for my One of a Kind clients. The scarves are cotton French terrycloth and have accents of leather. Each one is a little work of art! If you are interested in attending the event, there is a giveaway on Instagram going on right now so check that out. The Instagram handle is @kimschalk. 

Until next show....


$300  sleep


The ACC show in Baltimore proved to be THE most interesting show we have ever done. From the two blizzards, sick children, the rude parking garage assistant, and the $300 night of sleep, it was interesting, to say the least.  On a good note, we {overall} had a great time at the show.  We met some of the sweetest people and saw some of the most amazing things we have ever seen.

Let's just say we are now prepared for anything that can be thrown our way.  BRING IT!


Rain = apocalypse 


As I sit here listening to the rainy mix hit against my windows, all I want to do is pray;

Dear God,

Please! Please! Please! Don't let school get canceled. It's only a little bit of rain, and I have way too much to do. I have no time to be making endless amounts of snacks, making sure things are not too cheesy, or answering questions about what, how, and why.

If we can hold off until four, I would GREATLY appreciate it!

Your Dearest,


-I think I sprained my brain-


It has been nonstop ever since June. And my poor brain has had its work cut out for him!

I was hoping for the 3.. yes 3 pop-ups we had going on in December were over, that we would have just a glimmer of a break. But! Between spring 2015 production and getting ready for the trade show in Baltimore this upcoming February that just isn't going to happen.

So hang in their little Brain .. WE CAN DO IT!!
