you just can't say cheeriup without an exclamation point. try it. cheeriup (exclamation point!) is a thoughtful new venture by our friend kelly. she takes native recycled willow branches and weaves and maneuvers them into simple yet intricate outdoor or indoor play structures (thickets) for kids of all sizes. i visited her brand new studio space a couple weeks ago and was blown away by both her process and the seemingly endless compositions and good bits littered all around her work space.
in kelly's words...
What will you discover in your dream Thicket?"
a thicket in the works, nearly complete
if you're in minneapolis and want a real cheeriup experience, kelly has been hard at work all week weaving a 9 foot tall thicket that will reside in michelle's new impeccable, beyond perfect studio space, which is already becoming our new second home (an entry about that coming up, in fact).
