Custom DIY Bike Storage.

Geoff and I live in a little tiny apartment. We have two [assembled] bikes and with the shortage of space, we were tired of leaning them against our furniture. After sifting through a few blogs and online shopping for suitable storage, we knew that we only had one option: make our own. See the full how-to after the jump!

Modern Paint by Number Kits

State Bird Series - Ohio
This was bound to happen sooner or later. I started an Etsy shop specifically for my hand-drawn paint by number kits. What can I say? I'm a bit obsessed. I've started the shop with my state bird series. So far I have Ohio and the Northern Cardinal listed, but am definitely open to custom requests. I love this concept.

I have plans to release other states very soon, as well as various other themes (a US presidents theme? An animal series? Bicycles, of course!). Keep an eye on the store and I'll be sure to update you on what's happening!

While pretty bare at the moment, go ahead and get familiar with Quaint by Number on Etsy. And if you have an ideas, leave a comment or send me a message! If I use your idea, you'll get a special discount code for your purchase.

Quaint by Number is no longer active on Etsy. If you're looking for custom kits, please email me for inquiries!

Live Every Week Like It's Shark Week

Blue Shark Porcelain Figure on Etsy
I can't even express how excited I am about this shark. Geoff shot me a look of don't-buy-that as I squealed with excitement upon the treasure. If we had a two bedroom (ie, one bedroom, one studio room), I would totally stash this away for myself in my work area. Alas, we are still in this onesie and he doesn't appreciate the awesomeness of this fish, so I'm putting this on Etsy for your lovely home. Check it out on my Etsy shop!

Moving to Blogger.

Originally, the Mini Penny blog was living over on Tumblr. While I love Tumblr (the design, the community, the simplicity), I'm feeling as though Blogger is a better platform for the content of MP. Sometimes I just want to talk and talk and talk, and well, Tumblr isn't built for that.

So for those of you who were already following me on Tumblr, please bear with me while I work out the Blogger kinks. To be honest this is my first time using this blogging outlet, so it might take me a second to get the hang of it.

Meanwhile, what should you expect to see here? Rather than redundant posts of "Hi, I have this for sale," I hope to spread a little more information regarding my personal style and fashion inspiration (possibly via my Lookbook account?) and other tidbits that I find interesting.

I plan on making the same transformation with my Twitter, so be prepared! Comments are enabled, so if there are any suggestions of items you'd like to see, let me know!
