First Friday Florals

The beginning of this month I went out with my awesome Uncle Paul and his friend Ray to Community Florist to kick off First Friday after an awesome dinner at Ray's house, complete with quinoa and a veggie burger!

Every First Friday Community Florist offers floral arrangement classes. I had a lot of fun picking out colors and learning techniques from Paul and Ray (who once upon a time had a very successful flower shop together in Hawaii!).

The image above of my arrangement was taken on the work table at Community Florist shortly after I finished it.

This image was taken on my patio, from above so you can see all the prettiness.

A close up of the gorgeous flowers.

A back view of the arrangement so that you can see the gorgeous orange flowers too!

I hope everyone is having a spooktacular week!

Stay Spooky,

Model Offer

Let me preface this entry by saying that I have been dabbling in modeling here and there, and thusly some months ago started an account on Model Mayhem. Having an account on Model Mayhem I sometimes get model inquiries e-mailed to me from supposed agents or agencies in foreign countries offering me money to come here to shoot photos of me. It is usually pretty easy to tell just by the e-mail subject lines that these e-mails are scams. The subject of the e-mail below, which I woke up to this morning, was Model Job Offer With Good Payment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now, any respectable modeling agency would have a bit more professionalism I would think, and perhaps not exclaim so much as if it were a Craigslist ad.

I would also like to point out that I have my name on my Model Mayhem account, so the opening to this e-mail was awesome.

Hello Vegan,

Tuck N Roll Kustoms Interview!!!

Gothcupcake recently had the opportunity to interview the beautiful and talented Krissy of Tuck N Roll Kustoms about her line, classic cars, and cupcakes!

When did you start your business?
I started the concept for Tuck N Roll Kustoms in August 2009, opened an Etsy store in February 2010 and started listing items in March 2010.

How did you get started?
This is what I wanted to do when I started crafting. I started out by making jewelry, sending it to my mom in Texas and having her sell it down there. Then I opened a store called Absidy's Boutique, but I didn't enjoy what I was selling. It wasn't me. I told my husband that I had been wanting to make clothing, hair flowers and everything Rockabilly/1950's related. He asked me why I hadn't started already. I got my first sewing machine and gave it a shot. I took a few trips to LA and started my fabric habit. I started playing around with different ideas for patterns and lengths. I made some REALLY wonky stuff starting out, haha. He helped me buy my serger and coordinated with my parents to surprise me with a new and better sewing machine for Christmas. It's so nice to have so many people supporting me.

Your line, Tuck N Roll Kustoms, is "Retro Inspired", do you have a personal vintage collection?
If so, what types of items do you collect?
I used to collect a ton of things like 1950's toasters, V8 car emblems, vintage suitcases... etc, but now that fabric and sewing machines take up my sewing room, I've had to get rid of a lot of things to keep up with that habit.

I noticed on your websites, and, that you pose with classic cars alot for your listings, do you own any classic cars?
The main car in my pictures is my Husband's 1930 Model A Coupe. That thing is wicked! It'll rattle your brains. The other truck in my pictures is my father-in-law's 1952 Ford Pickup. My husband is in the process of giving it a new paint job and a new motor. For our wedding, our friend Dave gave me a 1955 Ford Ranch Wagon!

What inspires your creations?
I fall into sewing slumps sometimes, so I make some time to head out to search for new fabrics. When I find new stuff, I can't wait to rush home to construct my next design.

Have you had any famous/memorable clients?
No one famous, but I try to treat every customer like a rockstar.

Do you ever sell at conventions or local events?
I'm in the Marine Corps right now, so my time is pretty limited. I try to atleast attend a lot of SoCal car shows to pass out business cards and free hair bows/flowers. After I get out, I plan on doing way more shows.

Future plans for Tuck N Roll Kustoms?
I have so many plans! I plan on doing a ton of shows and expanding my product line to dresses, vintage style bathing suits, more hair accessories, elaborate hair fascinators, and any idea that pops in my head.

Favorite product from your line?
I'm going to have to go with my skirts. They're so comfy and there are so many ways you can pick to have your skirt made. There is a design for everyone.

What do you like to do in your free time?
I wish I had free time. If I'm not at work, I'm sewing, at a car show or online promoting.

Favorite film?
Hands down, my favorite movie is Crybaby with Johnny Depp. I have other favorites as well, such as, Grease, American Graffiti, and (random) Arthur.

Favorite cupcake flavor?
Key lime flavored cake and cream cheese frosting. mmmmmmmmm.
