Erica Domesek of P.S. I Made This is back with another DIY installment just in time for Valentine's Day. She's taught us how to make a denim cross-body out of jean shorts, a Wang-esque sweatshirt, and today she's doing a Tom Binns-inspired multi-strand pearl necklace. But the best part is the Valentine's Day poem she recites to the love in her life...her closet. Enjoy!
Life With Erica Domesek from P.S. I Made This
Since we've started a DIY series with Erica Domesek of the fabulous site-turned-book P.S. I Made This, we thought we should get to know her a bit better. So a few weeks ago, I arrived at Erica's East Village apartment mid-morning, expecting to have a brief chat with her to find out more about her site and how it came about. I walked into a cloud of smoke coming out of the oven and Erica muttering something about her lack of a vent. She likes to cook almost as much as she likes to craft, and had prepared baked eggs with spinach and baby tomatoes topped by sliced avocado for our informal "chat." "I love cooking...using my hands to make things, that's what makes me happy," she told me. Lucky me. Getting them out of the oven without a potholder? No problem. A vintage army jacket doubles as a potholder in Erica's world. She took off her jacket and used it to grab the steaming hot eggs, and without missing a beat said, looked up from the oven and said with a wink "P.S. I made this...potholder."
