Amazing People

There are some amazing people in this world and we all know at least one. I'd like to take a moment and tell you about a couple I know.

Mackenzie, and her sidekick Kate, are known for their Meatbagz. These awesome totes, with a wicked sense of humor, will help you lug around all your prized possessions whether you're male or female. These two woman rummaged through their scraps wondering who they could give them to. After thinking about it long and hard, Malamoose came to mind and is now happy to have some very awesome scrap leather. I can't wait to work on projects using this vintage leather. Thanks guys!

Another person I'd like to give a shout out to is my friend Jeromy. After working together in a camera shop and sharing our passion for the arts, Jeromy has inspired me to give back to the locals as well as help out those in need. Jeromy has just started a blog called Small Happenings , I suggest you check it out and see what other inspiring ideas he has to talk about.

New Home and Men's Collection for Malamoose Beadery

Malamoose Beadery has moved to a new location! Now located in the Northeast Kingdom in a small town called Greensboro,VT with a population of 700 people during the winter, and twice as many in the summer months it's still a very remote area. Known for it's gorgeous views of mountains, lakes, and wildlife this is a photographers and artists dream destination.

After spending time photographing everything in site, I decided I needed to put the camera down and actually get my studio set up and ready for business. I've claimed the upstairs loft just for this due to its inspirational views and warm sunny atmosphere. Although it's just a little nook in the corner of our bedroom things are working out well.

Due to this fabulous work area and amazing views I've been inspired to create a Men's Wear section for Malamoose Beadery. With it being NEW I plan on spending time in the studio creating more items to get this section fully stocked for the holidays. But right now here's a sample of what's to come.

I would love to hear from any of you who may have some suggestions about what you would like to see in this section. Please leave some feedback with you ideas and I'll get back to you about my thoughts. Now back to taking photographs and getting this Men's wear section filled up....
