Done with dresses, on to skirts and pants, and changes to this blog.
I hope you are all well, and having a great week. As you may have noticed I have been M.I.A when it comes to blogging, and the truth is, I just haven’t had a lot of extra time on my hands to sit at the computer and come up with new and exciting things to write. I have been busy with classes, fixing up our house, and planning out business stuff. It is a slow but steady process, and very tiring. At night the last thing I want to do is look at a computer.
I have completed my lemonade dress, as well as Ciarra’s bento box dress, and now I am on to making two skirts…both the same fabric, one for me, and one for Ciarra. The fabric print is pretty unique and we love it. I am also going to be making several pairs of trousers, and some skinny jeans.
I am really “coming into my own” now in figuring out what my particular fashion and designing style is. It is really interesting to see how my tastes have changed over the years, and I would describe myself as more of a “clean and classic modern.” This will be reflected in my product line.
I have almost completed my workspace. The only things that are left to do is paint my desk white, cut the mirror for the antique frame we have, and hang some pictures. My husband is also working on his MBA, so his time is limited as well. I still don’t know how in the heck I am going to fit everything into my schedule once everything is up and running…I totally get why people hire assistants now. I could so use one.
Here are a couple of snap shots I took recently with my iphone of things going on around the homestead….
|My son snuggling under my fall quilt. It was actually pretty chilly the other morning! When there are no thunderstorms in sight, the temps seem to plummet. I can feel the fall in the air!
|Picture of progress on the family room. John has painted a bit more on the beams now, and we are going to be white washing the brick with the same color on the upper walls (Benjamin Moore Muslin) I am so loving how it looks! painting all that trim is so utterly time consuming. We haven’t even started on the entry yet.
I am also going to be changing the look of my blog. I feel it is really not me anymore. I want things to look more simple and clean. Eventually we will be completely designing a whole new concept, not just using blogger templates.
I need to get back to work, but before that I need to scarf down some lunch.
Stay tuned for pictures of the dresses I made…
Until next post,
