Country Themed 1st Birthday.

Megan Bailey of Sweet Little Peanut Blog contacted me about making a barnyard mask set for her little Bennie’s 1st birthday party. I was more than happy to create these fun farm animal masks! Bennie’s birthday party was adorable, of course! Megan has an eye for design and her parties are always top notch cute + fun!

off switch magazine.

I found Off Switch Magazine last summer and fell in love with the photos, stories and especially their mission:

Isn’t that just lovely? And I feel so honored and lucky to share that Opposite of Far makes an appearance in the latest volume!

I encourage you to check out Off Switch!

little fox + opposite of far = love

Opposite of Far is working with Little Fox again for their June subscription pack and I couldn’t be happier with this partnership! Christine of Little Fox had a brilliant idea to offer their subscribers with an extra special, exclusive mask. We decided on the Toucan- quite a challenge for me me at first, I think this mask turned out to be pretty great! The toucans have finally escaped my studio and will be sent out into the world very soon! I can’t wait to collaborate with Little Fox again- they are truly the bees knees!

sweet little peanut feature.

When I opened my e-mail & saw a message from Megan Bailey, editor of Sweet Little Peanut blogazine, I knew I was in for a treat! Megan asked if I would be interested in collaborating on a styled shoot full of little peanuts wearing Opposite of Far masks & tails. My answer was Y E S !  (in a sing-song voice, of course)! I mean…just peruse through this blog and you’ll understand why I was so excited- the photos are gorgeous & the styling is spotless! Not only that, she also has amazing photographers, darling locations, and little peanuts galore at her fingertips! Megan has an eye for what’s cool, what kids will love and what’s beautiful- I’m just so honored to have fallen into those categories!

The feature is even better than I imagined! Heather Nan was the photographer behind this lovely photo shoot, and she nailed it! The photos are full of energy, imagination and childhood playfulness. All the images perfectly illustrate the spirit behind Opposite of Far.

Brickyard Buffalo + Nat the Fat Rat

I feel SO honored to be one of Natalie Holbrook’s guest editor picks on Brickyard Buffalo this week! I’ve been reading her blog for a couple years now. She’s funny & real… I just can’t get enough! Natalie writes about being a mama to Huck, fake eyelashes, food, infertility, New York City and being in love with her red-headed husband. I love her sense of humor and feel like we’re kindred spirits when it comes to “taste”- from her obsession with chocolate cookies & other sweets to her love of antlers, arrows & animals! Seeing her & Huck in my masks was really something special this morning! Thanks, Natalie for thinking my masks are cool & for choosing Opposite of Far to spotlight this week! And thanks to the gals at Brickyard Buffalo for hosting a space for handmade businesses like Opposite of Far to be showcased & supported!

Nat the Fat Rat*not only do I feel immensely cool for being chosen by Natalie…look at my fellow artists up there!! –
