Excuse our Mess.
We are working on creating an interesting format and should be done soon!
Muji Tape Dispenser
What: Muji Metal Tape Dispenser Why: Ah the most basic of tools. Or one of them anyway. The clear scotch tape, used in joining pieces of paper together for those times when your patterns stretch to vast sizes, or when you forget to add an inch to your already cut out waistband pattern and don’t want to retrace the entire piece. I will give you a little side note about me, design is a...
I have always had a love for A.) Vintage and B.) Anything Kid related. And one of the great perks of having a babe is that I don’t feel like a weirdo when I buy toys, get excited over crayons, and stock up on vintage baby clothes at thrift stores (even girl stuff). Not that it REALLY stopped me before, but now they are actually put to use. And now (for culdesac photo shoots) I will...

We LOVE...COOL CRAYONS!
I love crayons already. I love the smell, I love the crayola box with the sharpener, I love the color names. Let’s just say I am a huge fan. So no suprise that I went bananas when I saw this etsy shop, and this one.
The weather has been beautiful lately and warm enough that water activities will soon be apart of our daily lives. I lurve summer. We got out the baby pool. and we are still working on how to smile.
What: Draping Style Tape Why: Style tape is a ribbon that is 100% cotton, thin, and usually in black. Comes on a slice of a spool and is used to mark the location of your intended seams, necklines, and any other marking you want to see easily through the muslin you are draping on the dress form. As this one is secured to the form by pins, you can also find sticky tape tape kinds. I tend to...

A Paris Trip
Oh Happy Day is a blog that my sister introduced me to after Jordan and her family decided they were moving to Paris for a year. Studying fashion, Paris is and always will be my Mecca. I have been lucky enough to have traveled to the Holy Land several times while growing up with my family and also in the past several years with Cameron, and friends. But the last time in particular was...
Cameron has a deathly fear and intense fascination with sharks. So anything shark is a must. If we had a beach house do you think they would make an enlarged version for a fence? I WANT ONE
Lets go back a few steps and let us introduce ourselves. We are Cameron, Hayley, and Ender Barker. Culdesac is our boys clothing line that we are creating together. This blog is something we knew we wanted to do when we thought about launching our site. Cameron and I both love sifting through blogs of people who create. Whether it is art, photography, graphic design, flowers, making...
What/How To Buy: Pattern Notcher
What: Pattern Notcher Why: This small but heavy duty stainless still punch is a tool that I learned about in school. Used in the industry on production level patterns to mark where the legs of the dart ends. It might seem like a unnecessary tool that will sit in the drawer and collect dust. But on the contrary, if you are serious about pattern making this guy will be used and well loved...
Check it out Wednesday
