guilty pleasures

This time of year, with our gray Portland skies, it's hard to stay motivated and I can most likely be found hibernating while listening to melancholy music. Remember the soundtrack of Once?  That's often on repeat in January. In order to keep moving this past cold January here at Frankie&CocoPDX we found inspiration in some booty shakin' music to keep us going. Here's two of our favorite motivational guilty pleasures. Enjoy! Maya has Beyoncé's new amazing album on repeat.

Sarah can NOT stop listening to Flo Rida's up-do of Nina Simone's "How I Feel."

f&c in january

It’s been a wonderful few weeks into the new year here at Frankie & Coco PDX of making, designing, card playing, studio organizing, tennis watching (and playing), retail opportunity on the new horizon, karaoke, visiting with friends and meeting new ones. There were even a few PDX Etsy celebrity sightings.

We were excited that Frankie & Coco’s fuchsia wool with black canvas foldover clutch was in Ann Cosgrove of acbc Design's bold + beautiful  treasury featured on the front page of Etsy!  A great collection making us dream of a bright spring ahead.


Last week we had a fun night visiting with other PDX Etsy-ers, many of which we have been crushing on for a very long time.  It was a blast to meet the makers of Prunella Soap, Reverse Chronology, Portland Apron Company, The Cozy Project, Huzz Art Shop, Pom Love, Kyra Botanica, Ready Maker Design and Etsy guru Melissa Santos.

February is already shaping up to be a busy month. We are looking forward to a little down time this weekend to say goodbye to January and welcome in a new month.
