Lately I've been working some on Katastrophic's branding. If only I could hire someone to design it all for me... BUT when you don't have money to buy fancy things, it's amazing what a few crafty supplies can amount to. And now Katastrophic underwear has new packaging... made entirely by hand from paper, puffy paint, typewriting, glitter, and origami!

Here is a pile of prototypes and a pretty good picture of what my work desk usually looks like:

Here is the box that made the final cut:
(I have to admit, I did impress myself with this one. I was beginning to feel like a loser for doing origami and puffy paint for 2 days...)

And now for a gratuitous dose of pure cuteness: this is how Peanut and I deal with living in a cold little house.

Stay warm, friends!


Lace for the new collection is on it's way!

I spent a good amount of time this week researching lace suppliers to source lace for my new collections. I was about to try to start ordering lace from a giant factory supplier in China because it's almost impossible to find anything else. I felt a little bad about just buying the normal kind of factory mass produce lace at cheap prices, but I decided it was good enough to be using ethically sourced fabric. When I told JR he pooped on my party and told me I shouldn't be making a compromise like that. So I started looking around a little more and pretty quickly this is what I found:

Laces made from %100 organic cotton, and even the manufacturing process involves no chemicals.

My order is shipping from Europe today or tomorrow, and I can't wait to get it!
