When the lovelies ladies at Lowbrow invited me to be a part of their upcoming Custom Toy Show & B-Day Party I was thrilled. I’ve collected vinyl toys for a few years now and had yet to design one of my own (pan to obligatory shot of toy collection)…

When I unpacked the pristinely white DIY Munny I knew exactly what I was going to do to it, it’s a term I’m just now making up, dioramify! I imagined all of these tiny figures gathering together in their community, filing the proper paper work, lobbying the local city councilmen and women and anxiously awaiting the day of unveiling that is soon to come. These tiny figures worked hard on their miniature landscape creating a giant topiary munny. And with that I give you Topiary Assembly

Handmade Colorado

I recently had the opportunity to check out the Handmade Colorado Exhibit at the Denver International Airport. This is an exhibit focusing on the handmade talents of Colorado. Here’s a peek at the few of the artists on view…

There is even a DIY craft station that you can create something before you travel. If you are passing through the airport anytime soon, don’t miss this exhibit.

Rakun & Fast Geek Boutique

I am pleased to announce that you can now find becky’s buttons & things at two locally owned boutiques here in Denver, Rakun & Fast Geek Boutique. Rakun is nestled in the Arts District on Santa Fe and specializes in locally made goods as well as recycled and upcycled wares.

The owner Meghan makes these adorable hand-stamped children’s clothing and shoes. Needless to say I’ll be headed back soon for a pair of those anchor shoes.

Fast Geek Boutique is located in a cute strip of locally owned restaurants and store fronts called Cherokee Row. Created by Tina Jolliffe and Vincent Fasano, Fast Geek Boutique is dedicated to the creative local talents of Denver. The store includes original clothing designs, vintage clothing, accessories, jewelry, fabrics, craft supplies, art, books, and music.
