Hand Blown Glass Paperweights by Local Artisan Taylor Kelly

Amigami is proud to present an awesome line of home décor handcrafted by local artisan Taylor Kelly. These decorative glass paperweights are hand blown, and feature bursts of color and an attention to detail that make them a beautiful addition to any home or office.  These spheres feature a myriad of gorgeous designs, and each measure approximately 3″ in diameter.  Weighing over a pound each, and with a flattened base for added stability, these glass orbs are a beautiful and functional piece of tabletop art.  Completely one-of-a-kind, these glass paperweights are currently for sale in the Amigami Etsy Shop.

Amigami Party @ Wheeling Moose Feb. 9th!

We’ve been hard at work designing a multitude of awesome Spring fashions for our jewelry line, and sales and interest is booming!  I will be working over the next 2 weeks to take pictures and add them to the Amigami Jewelry Gallery, as well as my Etsy shop.

Wheeling Moose Crawl and Halloween Party!

The Wheeling Moose has been hosting a plethora of ultra-exciting events as of late, and I’ve been attempting to chronicle these occasions for the fledgling Wheeling Moose Lodge web page.  Here I’ve posted the photos of both the Moose Crawl and Halloween party, for your viewing pleasure.  Please feel free to leave comments and share your rendition of these wonderful events!

Over 1 TON of Alpaca Fiber For Online Auction – Ends Thursday!

Local Frio Auction Service recently acquisitioned over one ton of various grades and color of alpaca fleece due to the closure of a regional fiber mill.  Over the last few weeks, my partner and I have been helping Frio Auction Service in sorting and cataloging this fleece to prepare it for auction.  Online bidding has already started, and if you would like to check out the lots or place a bid, please click here. The online auction will be complemented by a live auction taking place at 5 pm Thursday on 16th St. in downtown Wheeling.  All of the lots already have bids, and this may be the first exclusively fiber auction ever (or at least for this region), so make sure to check it out!

Pizza Express & Moose Lodge #2621

Amigami is currently hard at work on several web design projects for local businesses & organizations.  At this moment we’re developing the website graphics & formatting, and will definitely post the URLs as soon as the sites are live.

The first business is a local restaurant, Pizza Express, whom I’ve worked with before in developing a logo for their new line of frozen pizza.  Pizza Express is a great example of a successful local business, their food is terrific, and I’m so happy to be working with them.  We will be creating a new and improved storefront website, as well as a page for their frozen pizza line, Oven Sensations.

Additionally, I’ve been appointed as Webmaster for the Wheeling, WV Moose Lodge.  The Loyal Order of the Moose is an international fraternal organization, much like the Lions or Eagles, with a focus on family and community service.  Although the Wheeling Moose is a tight-knit community, they’ve decided to join the online realm in order to stay connected with other Moose lodges & chapters and let the public see all the great activities they’re involved in.

I firmly believe in the idea of local businesses & communities supporting one another, and offering my graphic & web design capabilities as a service is just one way of making that idea a reality.  If you or someone you know would like to discuss similar web design projects, please contact Amigami for a consultation.

Local News Visits Rancho Chico Alpacas

After all of the attention the alpaca ambassadors received at the Wheeling Moose Steak Fry, local news station WTRF visited Rancho Chico to do a story on the whole ranch!  Newswoman Leigh Ann Towne was fascinated by the alpacas at the steak fry, and was overjoyed by the idea of covering the ranch in her Everybody Has a Story segment on the nightly news.  I’m glad to have helped set up this interview, and I hope everyone involved had a fun time during filming (despite the heat).

Patchwork Purses Handmade by Autumn

Amigami is proud to present a new line of brilliant patchwork purses, handmade by local artist Autumn Bender!  These totes are the ultimate in shabby chic, featuring colorful patterns and an over-sized design that makes them a truly one-of-a-kind fashion statement.  Designed and sewn by Autumn, these bags are completely eco-friendly — constructed from 100% re-purposed fabric.

The first available is a large satchel made primarily of warm-toned upholstery fabric, with a soft blue contrasting daisy-inspired liner and five gorgeous floral accents.  I adore the color scheme — the beige & rusty tones of the bag’s body makes the floral design pop off the canvas, bringing the whole purse together.

The second has become known as the “Green Apple” purse,  and is constructed from (you guessed it!) the upper portion of a pair of grass green corduroy pants. This bag retains its original belt loops, four fully functioning pockets, and even an additional zipper pocket for the fly!  But what really makes this bag special is the pair of patchwork apple trees which really add a whimsical flair to the purse’s overall design.  Lined by royal purple paisleys, and finished with sandstone-colored dual straps, this bag is a total eye-catcher.

With their large size and durability, either of these bags would be perfect for travel, a day at the pool or beach, or even everyday living.  Both of these purses are currently for sale in my Etsy shop, and Autumn is hard at work, so keep watching for more one-of-a-kind designs!
