Enamel Pins?!!

At some point during maternity leave my one-handed internet browsing led me to Gimme Flair. I was overcome by the desperate need to buy all the enamel pins, but somehow I refrained and redirected my energy into making my own.

I have a buttload of ideas for enamel pins, but I’m starting with just one to test the waters. I mean, I don’t want to fill my shelves with a zillion pins if nobody else wants them. I only have one jean jacket to fill after all. If my “lady power” uterus pin is a winner, you can expect to see a lot more Wit & Whistle pins in the near future!

New Mother’s Day Cards

Mother’s Day cards are in the shop! I have two new ones this year. One for your mom friends who are up to their necks in dirty diapers (me), and one for your mom now that you’re a grown up and appreciate her more for her friendship than for her butt wiping skills.

In other news I’m on snapchat, and I’m kinda loving it. At first I was totally confused, but my hip little sister gave me a tutorial. Now I’m posting completely uncurated photos and videos without caring if they look perfect together and fit my branding, because they disapear in 24 hours. It’s the social media where you can let your hair down. I feel so free.

My username is witandwhistle—come follow me or friend me or heart me or whatever snapchat calls it!

Basement Gardening

A while back I got Daniel this grow light for his office. Since I ended up being the plants’ primary caregiver, I commandeered it, spray painted it gold, and moved it to my basement studio. I’ve always wanted a bunch of plants in my studio, but there just isn’t enough natural light to keep them alive. Problem solved! I have the light on a timer so all I have to do is remember to water the plants every so often. Thankfully succulents and cacti can take a lot of abuse, because I usually forget. I’ve had this setup for at least a year or so, and everybody is thriving. The greenery doesn’t look nearly as appealing as it would in front of a big bright window, but this is as good as it gets in a basement!
