E.A.S.T. The New Frontier

Remember how I recently moved into a new place on the east side of town? Well I'm excited to announce my participation in the 2009 East Austin Studio Tour! That's right on the weekend of November 14th & November 21st you can come over and visit me in my studio. I'll have some items for sale and I'll be printing new items too! Oh and there will be drinks and snacks for visitors, you've got to keep your strength up on the tour! So much walking and so much to see! Speaking of - The Birdhouse (my amazing neighbors) will have an awesome group show up during the tour that is NOT TO BE MISSED! To learn more about who is else will be opening their doors please visit the E.A.S.T. homepage!

Praying for Plaid? Hungry for Houndstooth?

Or maybe just anxious for argyle? Me too!
Tis the season for these preppy/punky patterns - and don't worry because Model Citizen's got your back.

This fall I'm offering a small run of limited edition jewelry featuring more plaid, argyle and houndstooth than you can handle! Why - because I'm crazy obsessed with all three. Seriously - cray cray!

I sat down the other day while I had a cold and designed my own argyle (see with the unicorns!!) and then I could not stop myself. And there is more to come! You know this! Two words for you Cupcake Argyle. Oh yeah - that's in the works! Do not fret my lovely readers, I'll keep you posted.

If you see something you like, but maybe you prefer a different tartan or color scheme please feel free to message me on etsy or email me @ and I can make you a custom piece. Why? Because I want you to be happy ;)

So tell me, which is your favorite? Houndstooth, Argyle or Plaid? Which do you wear the most of? I think I probably wear plaid the most. Austin recently bought me a plaid dress - check it out!

p.s. My $12 T-shirt sale is still in full effect... but how long will it last?

Trilogy of Awesomeness!

Hello loverly readers! Remember how I've been hinting at a Super secret collaboration for months now? I don't have to keep you in the dark any longer! Sublime Stitching approached me a few months ago *swoon* about the Model Citizen <3's Bake & Destroy design I did at the beginning of the year. You know the one - inspired by Natalie Slater & it came with her awesome Nacho Cupcake recipe? It was featured on the Bust blog & we did a huge giveaway? Yes! Now your memory has been refreshed & just in time! Well, that design is now featured on one of Sublime Stitchings Stitch-It-Yourself Eco Tote Bags!
That's Right!
Sublime Stitching + Model Citizen Clothing + Bake & Destroy!

Soon they will be available in my shop too, but here's some seriously amazing new: You've got a chance to win one of these amazing totes, a Model Citizen brooch AND 3 sets of cupcake toppers from Bake & Destory! Visit the Sublime Stitching blog, leave a comment and cross your fingers! The give away ends @ 4pm this afternoon so do not dilly dally!

*You will get a second chance to win a tote here @ Good Girls & Geeks - but not today...

Okay, What are you still doing here? Scram! Go! Win!
