  1. The Plastic Bag – Low quality machine-made goods

    April 1, 2013 by Lauren


    Josiah and I have been doing a lot of thinking, and we think its time to rebrand the blog and shop. So we are changing from The Burlap Bag – high quality handmade goods to The Plastic Bag – low quality machine-made goods. It just seems like a good fit. A whole shop full of items from China and blog tutorials on microwave dinners and gluing yarn to plastic plates.
    Give us your thoughts!

    In other world news, today is the first of April.

  2. Las Vegas

    February 19, 2013 by Lauren

    No awesome posts this week… Lauren is in Las Vegas! Nope, definitely not my first choice of places to go… But I’m helping one of our artists with a trade show here. A couple of photos to keep you entertained….

    Our hotel… Yes seriously… A castle


    And then a person in a robe in a casino at 5:30pm! Ha. Oh what a week this will be.
    (Le shop is still up and running! Josiah and I are apart for pretty much the first time in more than 4 years)

  4. The Burlap Bag – a video!

    January 30, 2013 by Lauren

    Our good friend Andy made this sweet video of us and the shop…. in case you were ever wanting a video tour.

    Excuse our dorky selves. That’s the real us. (and we shot this awhile ago so in the video I don’t have 10 inches of pink hair, and Josiah has no moustache!)

    We love how the music turns up during the dj part, and the “dot” in dot com. (We are ridiculous, just in case you didn’t know.)

    Andy is an awesome awesome photographer – he and his wife Carrie shoot photos for weddings and family portraits as HappyDayMedia – go check their website out! Or like ’em on facebook. You won’t regret it.

    Ok. Watch ze video. Ze end.

    (thanks Andy! You’re the bees knees.)
