Our Faceted Sphere is the perfect way to display grandma s linen handkerchiefs, or mom s Sunday napkins, or dad s ties... Stitch them up with loved one s fabric, and enjoy being able to appreciate that fabric on a daily basis! (Even better, you could make one for multiple family members to share those precious textiles.) . . . .

Today marks a very special day in my career. Today I start designing @kevin.givens dress. This is not just a friend . This is a man who believed in me as a makeup artist and let me be in charge of a COUNTRY. I will never forget the day we were in Dallas with the Tigi international makeup team and we were going over our jurisdictions and he said ...Mel ...ok Mel you’ve got Canada ok sweety. And of course like a boss I said Fuck ya I do ! Remove fuck but you get it, I was going to care for Canada the way I did my Care a lot care Bear up to the age of 12...maybe 14? This was because I would do anything for this man. He made things happen. He’s the reason I got to teach Zak mascolo how to put on eyeshadow. He’s the reason I worked directly under Pat Mascolo and Anthony mascolo for the biggest hairshow in the USA ! He always coached me and he taught me that putting extra lines on a ladies face takes away from her beauty so it better serve a purpose or else BLEND BLEND and more BLENDING. He came all the way to my little town and salon to meet my team and share his techniques and education with them. This was not something that Kevin would normally do, but he flew half way across North America and did it. I love this man. He does his own thing. He dances to the beat of my drum. He wears whatever the fuck he wants and he has excellent taste in shoes. If he wasn’t gay I would ask him to marry me...I still might. So now I’m a retired makeup artist , I had the best experience at Cream and with TIGI. Now I sew, and I’m about to make the sickest dress for kev in his new career with Behindthechair.com ! I love you more than you know, Love Meli+Betsey . . .
