Graphic art meets real world

My latest graphic art is now available in the real world. I designed these fish and printed my custom textile in the United States. This is my most favorite piece yet. Every aspect of this toy is handmade with care, from the fabric twine to the last stitch. Some of my earliest memories are fishing with my dad, and I know I would have appreciated a toy like this when I was a kid. This three-piece set will be sold with a simple wooden fishing pole and I hope it inspires hours of imaginative play! If you want to get your hands on this new item, make sure you come and see me at my next show. Further information available on my facebook page.

Belle and Beau Go Live!

Blockboards by Belle & Beau
New town means new adventures and Christine isn't wasting anytime preparing for the handmade scene in Tennessee. Belle & Beau is a newly formed, joint project with husband David, for a refreshing update to her original solo project Belle Adore Boutique. To start, Christine and David hope to join the handmade and indie scene happening in the Nashville and Cookeville areas of middle Tennessee. They have set their focus on children's items, particularly inspiring imagination, creativity, and problem solving skills. You can expect to see Belle Adore's classic reversible crowns as well as new items hand crafted by David, such as the miniature blockboards pictured above.
