Look but don’t Touch





I like cacti, so it is a good thing I live in Arizona. I’m not sure why I find them so interesting, but I think they are really beautiful. Succulents really do it for me too. I can’t say I have a green thumb by any means though. What’s that you say? You can’t kill a cactus? HA, wrong!
You know what? This blog has really made me see that I have a lot of strange obsession. Stay tuned for more.

I love triangles. I have some creepy thing for ALL geometric shape, especially ones that involve triangles. I also get creepy about turquoise. That’s why I’m kinda obsessed with the first picture of the Aaron Moran’s assemblage piece. Could you picture a potted cactus sitting next to that bad boy on a parsons table? Oofta, good stuff!

The last piece I left you with is a newly crafted necklace for GEMEG Jewelry. It’s definitely one of my favorite pieces from my collection. Many of the pieces revolve around the triangle shape. (How many times can I say pieces in one post?) Reese’s pieces. 6

Welcome to One of Each

Welcome to One of Each Blog, a daily blog dedicated to fashion, art, cuisine, interior design, jewelry, photography, weddings, music…(deep breath)…and a whole lot more. One of Each is actually derived from the phrase von ove ichie, which I made up, and commonly say in an Italian accent when looking over a restaurant menu. “I’ll have von ove ichie.” I found it to also be perfectly fitting for this blog, but came to the conclusion that one of each would be more easily remembered.

One of Each is run by myself, Amanda Shoemaker, self proclaimed master of crafting, fashion connoisseur, and blog addict. When I’m not perusing blogs for inspiration, I’m busy getting my Art Director nerd on at Broken Bulb Studios, a growing social gaming studio based in Scottsdale, AZ. I have far too much creative energy brewing inside me and I find myself needing many creative outlets. This is why I will also be launching GEMEG Jewelry, a handcrafted jewelry line inspired by Arizona’s desert landscape and it’s native culture. Come back for more on that soon.

Now that my blog is born I call out to all of my fellow blog addicts to make a habit of dropping by daily for a One of Each fix.
