My great uncle Wayne lost his eyesight when he was a young boy. I made this sign for him for his 80th birthday. The Braille word is "family." Did you know you can find Braille cards at Hallmark and on Etsy?
Two of our black leather and copper custom braille bracelets pose next to a custom aluminum braille bar necklace before they are packed up to be shipped - so many dots, and so much fun! #braille
Meanwhile @bat_travels gets ready for the next trip. I wish I could go with them everywhere! .
When you teach your braille student the braille for @ and & but they want to know what they “look” like for people who see you get creative with the ends of tracker-feed paper! #tvilife#brailleart#creativemind
Thank you SO much to @sable.rogue for this beautiful piece to add to my office! I wanted to take a photo of it while it has just print on it—I’m adding Braille as soon as I have time. The sign is white with turquoise, purple, and pink flowy lettering and reads “be smart, be brave, be creative, be you”. I love it! It speaks my , and its so funny that you chose two things I had been considering at the store a couple of weeks ago! Thank you for these gifts!!
These little babes are prototypes for pins I plan to donate to the American Council of the Blind for the 2018 convention in Saint Louis. I might be making as many as 800 to 1000 of these lapel pins. They say

Four custom braille wrap bracelets featuring the different silk wrap colors (in either warm or cool tones) that we offer. Polished purple amethyst or yellow citrine stones dangle below the aluminum or copper metal bars containing the braille messages, adding an element of whimsy. So fun!
Christmas comes around at least monthly at NEAT! Every time I luster it brings those classic Christmas colors right out. Luckily they don’t stick around though. When I pop these babes in the kiln the green turns silver and the red turns gold! #sparkely
I ran into a former student this weekend and today we had a long chat about making him some custom lapel pins. Here are some of the sketches we came up with. We decided to use the new and more active wheel chair symbol designed by The Accessible Icon Project. I personally love this new symbol. It shows active movement. The old symbol is so static, and with that comes so many connotations that people in wheel chairs are static and incapable. The symbol and “The Accessible Icon Project is an ongoing work of design activism. It starts with a graphic icon, free for use in the public domain, and continues its work as a collaboration among people with disabilities and their allies toward a more accessible world.” We are also going to make these pins blue. How exciting! The braille translates to I KC. We chose to keep the heart symbol instead of writing out the word love to further illustrate the importance of symbolism in our world. My former student and friend is a man about town in the KC community. I think it’s just perfect!
One year ago today I was at the same location, at the same festival but with a totally different set up. It’s great too see so much change in only 365 days!
