jen's first ban.do

i made this one for myself, before ban.do was even a thought. i just wanted something fun for when andrew and i went to vegas to renew our vows (more photos here). i had so much fun wearing it that i decided i would make more and sell them. strangely enough, at the exact same time, jamie made something similar for her birthday - - and she wanted to sell hers, too. and ban.do was born.

ban.do girls

i found these little ladies at the swap meet about a month ago. i keep them on my desk. i love them!

she inspires us!

although that mustache would not survive today's harsh "facial hair on women" views, she was quite amazing. we are hoping to do a whole bunch of "frida" ban.dos for spring. my friend rachel gave me this book when we first started ban.do. i nearly fell off my chair when i saw it (and yes, i really almost did fall off - - i know people just say that, but i really, really did. i admit i was drinking at the time, but i really attribute it to the book.) if you want a copy go here (and just make sure you are either in a secure seat or sitting on the floor when you open it).
