Post image for back to work…

technically we didn’t actually have a snow day yesterday- there were a brave few who ventured out, despite blizzard warnings, and came to work for a couple of hours! but by mid afternoon everyone had been sent home.  when we came in this morning, this snowman was outside one of the navy yard buildings welcoming everyone back :)

Post image for a day in the life

we thought it would be fun to give you a little glimpse into the world of some of our fp girls, so to start out, we followed one of our designers for a week! we watched as she designed a garment from start to finish, had some of her designs tested out on a fit model and presented concepts and finished items to our design team. i can’t show you too much yet, but here’s a preview of what you’ll see in the video (coming soon)! stay tuned!

Post image for special wednes-diy guest blog post!

not too long ago some friends from work told me about the site nice package, and ever since i’ve been hooked…they use very simple, pretty materials to create packaging ideas that are so unique and creative.  i was on their site recently and saw they had a new product – an inspiration kit called “i left my heart in paris.” i thought it was so cute – and they were nice enough to put together a guest blog post about where they draw their inspiration, just in time for valentine’s day! please welcome the lovely ez and marichelle!

Hi everyone!  We are Ez and Marichelle, the fun-loving duo behind the creative packaging line Nice Package.  We’re so excited that we were invited here today to share a little bit about what went into one of our newest products: I Left My Heart in Paris.

In one of our brainstorming sessions last month we started talking about Inspiration Kits and how great it would be to make up mini collections that include bits and pieces of our favorite things to inspire our customer’s creative projects.  We both adore Paris, Air Mail envelopes, love letters, and vintage inspired ephemera and decided to group all these ideas into our first limited edition kit: I Left My Heart in Paris.

We like to think of our DIY Inspiration Kits as the perfect go-to sources for an instant pick-me-up.  The creative possibilities with our kits are as limitless as your imagination.  We used ours for Valentine cards, gift tags, and scrapbook pages.

Some ideas:

kit-paris-3

kit-paris-4

Come visit us on our site for more great products, and be sure to check out our blog for some fabulous freebies and DIY projects.

Post image for bonnarooooooo

this year’s bonnaroo lineup is being announced today…starting at noon today, they began revealing one artist at a time every 5 minutes on their myspace page.  pretty annoying actually…anyway it is going on right now if you want to check it out here.  so far, among the performers they’ve announced are the avett brothers, weezer, phoenix, the xx, ok go, jay z, theivery corporation, jimmy cliff and the flaming lips performing “dark side of the moon” with stardeath and white dwarfs.

i know it’s not over yet but i’ll admit, with the exception of jimmy cliff (which is rad), i’m a little disappointed.  maybe because i was at the second bonnaroo when the headliners were neil young, widespread panic and the dead.  it seems like each year it gets a little more mainstream.  what do you guys think?

on a more positive note, i love this photo shoot by dan martensen that was taken at bonnaroo ’08 (i was there that year, too)! as i mentioned yesterday, martensen shot our new february catalog, and our team was very inspired by this photo shoot – i can see why!

Bonnaroo does get more and more Mainstream, but I think in that aspect lies a lot of appeal. Being able to say you saw SUCH famous artists is super exciting, especially when you wouldn't seem them alone or on a normal basis. Additionally, mainstream music is not invalid just because it's mainstream, there is a reason it's popular, because people like it. That being said, I am disappointed in the line-up, as I went last year and was excited about every band.

Post image for february catalog drops tomorrow!

the theme for the catalog is “raw,” heavily inspired by nature – flowers, feathers, shells and raw materials, as well as lace, crochet and fringe.  the above beach shots were very inspirational, as well as the photographer dan martensen’s past shoots at the bonnaroo festival and with fashion muse erin wasson.

i think the end result is lovely!
