Pink for October!

I wanted Atomique47 to contribute in some way to breast cancer awareness month by participating in the Go Pink for October campaign. 20% of the purchase price from pink items in the Atomique47 shop will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Qualifying merchandise has a pink ribbon logo in the listing.

Etsy Finds: Preview Fall's Palette

Atomique47 was featured in the Etsy Finds email last week! I am so honored to have been included in this lovely collection and so grateful for the exposure!

They were dead on with the fall palette prediction. I love the deep aubergine purples for fall. It translates perfectly into tights or my linen clutch! This deep purple also goes great with my favorite boot color - cognac!

I love this new set!

I just finished up this great set of items that includes a wristlet, zip pouch and zip wallet/ camera pouch. I'm calling the wristlet "Rockstar on the Inside" because it has this great Michael Miller guitar print on the interior and a black and gray polka dot exterior. The coordinating items are in the reverse with the guitars on the outside and polka dots on the inside. I'm having a hard time not keeping these for myself!


Check em out in the shop!

One of my business goals for Atomique47 is to get a couple items in the store of my Alma mater - The Savannah College of Art and Design. ShopSCAD features the work of students, alumni, staff and faculty and it would be a great honor for me to be featured in the store.

I'm working on some new designs and hope to submit a few items for consideration by late summer.

Check out shopSCAD online. They've got a little something for everyone and a really wonderful group of artists represented.

So Excited!

I've been working on some felt bags for the last couple weeks and I just got some of the new merch in the shop today. Felt is such a fun medium to work with and makes a quite beautiful product.

So far I have a few flat bottom zip pouches - more colors coming soon!

I love this clutch! The heathered gray felt is so soft and the felt & tulle flowers were really fun (and time consuming) to make.

Check out the new merch in the shop

Sneak Peek!

I just received a bunch of new supplies - colorful zippers and wool felt solids. They are materializing in the form of zip flat bottom pouches first.

Here they are after they get their zippers sewn on.


I should have a few in the shop tomorrow!

Busy Bee!

My zipper shipment finally arrived so I was a busy busy sewing bee today and whipped up a few more wristlets. Three of the new ones are in the store now and I'll photograph and list two more tomorrow. I'm also finishing up a batch of small cosmetic zip pouches that should get listed tomorrow evening.

Once the zippered items are finished I'll get back to work on the frame clutches.

Keep checking back for new items!

Banana Bread

It's been years since I've had my mom's banana bread so I decided a few weeks ago to try making it myself. It was so easy and delicious that I made it again last night.


Here is the recipe:

2 1/2 cups of flour
1 cup sugar
3 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3 tbsp salad oil (I use melted butter)
3/4 cup milk
1 egg
1 cup finely chopped walnuts
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (2 to 3 medium)

Heat oven to 350
Grease and flour 9x5x3 loaf pan (Pam spray is fine)
Measure all ingredients into mixing bowl. Beat on medium speed 1/2 minute, scraping side and bottom of bowl constantly.
Pour into pan. Bake 55 to 65 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Remove from pan.
Cool thoroughly before slicing.

What is Atomique47?

I'm an interior designer by trade but due to the current economic situation, I've found myself with more free time than usual. I've always been a crafty and creative person and decided to put my interests, skills and free time to use and be productive!

The name Atomique47 is inspired by my beloved horse Silver. "47" is the atomic number for the chemical element Silver and thus "Atomique47" was born.

I've spent the last few weeks building an inventory for the Etsy shop and hope that you'll enjoy watching as this venture grows and evolves. This blog is not just a place for store announcements but a place for me to explore my creative mind and share ideas, inspiration and news.

Welcome to Atomique47. I hope you enjoy what you see here and keep coming back. :)

Wristlets Coming to the Etsy Shop Tomorrow!!!

Wristlets will be making their debut in the Etsy shop tomorrow (3/2/2010). These zippered purses are fully lined and come with detachable wrist straps. Perfect for a night out, a camera bag or just carrying the essentials. Get yours now while they last!
