Passion for Fashion

It’s hard to grasp that only a week ago I was in the midst of the Passion for Fashion challenge. To say that last weekend was stressful would be an understatement. But it was also an insane, wonderful, gut-wrenching and edifying experience. I met some lovely people and was definitely pushed beyond what I expected from myself in the time that was provided. I will try my best to communicate what life felt like for those two days. Continue reading

Then I did some sewing

I feel like I’ve done more drawing than sewing in the past few weeks. Fortunately, I’ve had a commission or two come my way to break it up. Plus I finished one of my personal sewing projects. Nothing like adding to your closet! Continue reading

Finishing moves & Good news!

Amazing products, and the proprietor, Sandria, is absolutely lovely. My mother and I visited the shop while she was in town, and had a fantastic experience. Continue reading

Procrastinate much?

Oh. My. Gosh. You guys, totally unacceptable. April 23rd was the last post?! Ridiculous. I feel especially bad because during this gap a few people started following this blog. Ugh. Fail me. So let’s get this rolling again. Continue reading
