this week i am moving my studio (from my previous loft to downstairs behind the RVA store– even though i am closing the store on May 10th, i am still officing there for most of the summer because of Jeremy’s recording studio… so that’s exciting.) PLEASE NOTE: my local store is closing for relocation & restructuring. We are expanding & making it cuter than ever, and these things take time. We are still shopping location and I will fill you in on details after we’ve made our final decisions. It will most likely re-open in Spring of 2011. I just want you to know that the changes going on are %100 positive and so exciting! This summer the RVA online store is expanding more than ever before… i really can’t wait to give the online store the attention it deserves for a season. 🙂

i CAN’T WAIT to get my studio unpacked and back to normal daily use! i’m also starting a new class. so most of my week will be spent like that! I’m looking forward to it and i’ll be here with probably a million-or-so more posts to keep you company with. LOVES, elsie

ps. jeremy, i miss you.


  • as always your 10 things are part of my sunday – i LOVE it

    cute cafes !!!!! made for sunday

    have a super duper day elsie


  • Super cure moccasins. Went to Jeremy’s show last night. So fun. He did awesome. Very talented. LOVED the song he wrote for you. So beautiful!!!

  • I love the paintings, cute!

    i love your 10 things i love Sunday posts 🙂

  • We are relocating my local store and restructuring it, adding LOTS. it will be a good thing, but i need some time! 🙂 The online store will be up & running all year and the new local store will be back in 2011. XO.

  • Don’t laugh, but I own that record player and its in mint condition. Mine since I was a young gal!!

  • I cant wait to see all the new awesomness!! I of course love the panda balloon 🙂 Hope everything goes smoothly for you!! Yay for new adventures 🙂



  • I saw a few of those little houses (and I think a barn) at one of the STD markets last weekend. I think it was the one further east….and towards the west side of the store? Very cute!

  • Elsie, I’m so pleased I got visit your pretty little store before you closed. I can’t wait to see what you do next; I think so many of us would wait forever!

  • I found a record player just like that at my local thrift store, and miracle of miracles it works (didn’t even need a new needle!) It’s been so handy for things like rearranging my apartment and providing some tunes for our garage sale at work. Plus, it’s super cute!

  • I’m really excited to see what you do with your store! When you open in your new location I will have to make a trip to visit your new store!!

  • Cute bangs Elsie! Moving is great because it’s a fresh way to look at what you have, and what you need or don’t. I love editing, and making things fresh! You’re great at that, so I know there’s lots of amazing things in store for RVA.

    PS. I love that you have a garden now. What would an elsie garden look like?

  • Did you delete your formspring? I just made one to follow artists that I like, but yours seems to have disappeared!

  • Yay! I’m so excited that you love our record player! Your Ten Things I Love Sunday posts are one of my favorite weekly reads, so imagine my surprise to see myself on it! I even blogged about it 🙂

  • your posts are always so inspiring to me. thank you!! and i can’t wait to get photo peeks at your new studio space!

  • That hot air balloon is adorable! Thanks for the smiles on this dreary Monday afternoon 🙂

  • Oh, good luck with the move! 🙂 I’m excited to see your online shop expand – that’s rad! And your 10 things are lovely and oh-so-inspiring, as always! The panda balloon is genius!

  • You are probably right. The mnmeot I’d clicked Post Comment I’ve realized that when drawing objects on top of a shadow would cause serious problems.Anyway thank you for your response and keep up the good work I hope that some day you will be able to write improved version of your sample, maybe transforming it into tutorial. It seems like quite a lot of people could benefit from that.

  • april is like emerging from a cave. I love tkiang care of my plants, starting seedlings (for the first time ever after many phone consultations with my mom), and seeing my children relish the sun-shine and fresh air. Now, if I could only find a sunscreen that doesn’t use nano-technology. Any ideas? Happy April to you!

  • zeusco Posted on Boris, gracias por tus repseustas, mira por algunas razones mayores tuve que reinstalar magento a la version, uso el lenguaje es_MX y me gustaria nuevamente poder usar el mismo formato que tienen los precios en tu pagina por el momento no puedo cambiar el idioma, y ya realice el cambio de presicion que sugeriste.

  • Well put.It’s about time someone said it. It alatucly hurts me to see people misuse their/there/they’re and then/than. No matter how much you know (know/now is another one) you come off as someone who doesn’t know what they’re talking about if you consistently make those mistakes.
