an oldie but an oh so goodie shot by @michellenorrisphoto / @tropicophoto SO, i’ve got lots of samples (versions slightly different from the final, garments worn in photoshoots, a few exchanged pieces, and a couple one offs) and i’m wondering..... would you prefer an IN PERSON sample sale in melb, an INSTAGRAM sale, or a sample sale in my WEBSHOP??

these photos were taken almost a year and a half ago in front of my old house on Haight St. in San Francisco. so much has changed, and so much is about to change. i’m on the precipice of a massive life overhaul and i’m feeling quite weary and nervous as i’m about to head back to school for the first time in over 5 years. but then i look back and think about the change that was about to come as i took these goofy ass photos of my goofy ass friends and i think, ok i made it through then, i’ll make it through now. (also i now know, it’s really hard to capture model-y photos of friends because getting them to stop laughing is impossible...) @alexsteele @munbeibi and @julia_ballenger (who is not in these photos but is a part of our overly global @westcoastcraft GANG) i love you and i miss you and one day we will all be reunited!

HEY AUSTRALIANS, so, even though I live in australia, my prices online are still in USD, which is definitely confusing! I’ve been offering local in person discounts on Maker & Mineral garments for the past few months because the exchange rate from USD has changed quite a lot over the year and has just gotten worse for you (sorrrrry about that!), but now i’m extending that discount to online shoppers as well!!!! COMMENT with the name of your hood, and i’ll DM you the discount code and feel free to tag your friends who might want this super secret (ok not that secret) code as well!

I’m sure you’ve been seeing those THIS IS A TEST posts all over the place recently! Instagram’s algorithm, that isn’t even remotely new at this point, is screwing over a lot of small businesses and creatives who came to rely on this platform for growth. But boosting future engagement is as easy as liking and COMMENTING (even just one word or an emoji) on the accounts you follow!!! it can be extremely demoralizing as a small business owner to put time/ work/ effort into creating imagery and content that ultimately only a tiny fraction of your followers see. So let’s make this a more engaged platform again, let’s chat! (photo by @alexsteele of badass cactus babe @shannonjosette)

I love seeing you all in your @makerandmineral!! When in the studio, each piece follows the same production path, each piece gets printed, sewn, pressed, and packaged the SAME way each time, so seeing these pieces take life out in the world on different bodies, in different cities, is PRETTY DAMN AMAZING!! These are some of the most recent pictures of cuties showing off their @makerandmineral!! please send me your photos or tag me in a post, you don’t know how happy they make me!!

i’m baaack! as of yesterday all holiday orders have finally been posted! oh my goodness i got so behind, and i hate getting behind! So, thank you all for you patience with me. i’m a one woman show, cutting, printing, sewing, ironing, and packaging all by myself, so it’s easy to get overwhelmed when i have a larger number of orders than usual come in all at once!! but as always, I appreciate you all and appreciate those who chose to support me, my small business, and ethical slow fashion when they buy from @makerandmineral (ACID POP set photographed by @alexsteele)

finding one picture to sum up 2018 was nearly impossible, but these forget-me-nots stuck on my chest by friends at a beautiful museum seemed pretty close to perfect. feel free to stop reading now.... it’s been a big year, of course filled with ups and downs, triumphs and huge disappointments, tears of happiness and tears of sadness, and probably most importantly the birth of my precious baby angel niece Winter (and my sister became the best mom around and i’m so proud of her). I don’t really like new years as a holiday, but today, on the last day of 2018, i feel quite hopeful for 2019. i put myself out there a lot this past year, in a way i never fathomed possible when i was an anxious/ awkward teen. If you knew me before, you’d probably know how much the fear of rejection and failure plagued me daily. but opening up and putting myself into uncomfortable situations has lead me to some truly beautiful friendships, a dream house, an opportunity to build @husbandstreet.studios, the ability to stay in australia at least until march of 2020, the chance to tattoo both here and in SF, and to meet and chat online with so many of you!!! like i said 2018 was a big one, and i have a feeling 2019 is going to be even bigger.... and this time maybe even better???? thank you for following on my little journey. i know social media can be a strange place, but your continued support has definitely been a MAJOR highlight and has allowed me to become who i am now as we enter 2019!!!! thank you! and HAPPY MOTHER FLIPPING NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!

wrapping things up for 2018, can you believe we there are less than 2 weeks left in this year?? i can’t, it’s been a whirlwind, and i can’t totally wrap my head around it. i’m trying to get as many order out before the christmas as possible, but i promise those ones that don’t make it out will be on their way so soon! (still so enamoured of these photos of @mariejkins taken by @alexsteele)
