Should I really sell these?

19 12 2009

I was prepared to give these up.. but the Metallic Top and the Skirts I am struggling with. I just have to keep reminding myself that I don’t wear skirts very much and that means that I should allow others to have them. Well, I hope you get a chance to own these lovely tops and skirts before I change my mind!

I love the Texture of the Shag Rug with the Chrome Lighting  on the ceiling.

I obsess and dream of graphic prints because I don’t get to have them. I could, but I’ve noticed that my husband gets really distracted and unsettled so I try to keep things minimalist for him.







Creative Genius Turned Madness

10 12 2008

Amazing Day. Flat-Out amazing.

1st I made photoshop work and do double photos for my shop…. like so…

2nd I washed the dishes, put them in the dishwasher and as soon as it was done running the cycle I put them away. The dishwasher is empty!

3rd I went for almost 24 hours with no processed sugar- and I lived to tell!

I just had a very benficial conversation with my Friend Ione. I described my plans for bedding for my new apartment and as I went on and on about how I was going to buy a tapestry from urban outfitters and make a duvet cover out of it because it was screenprinted with cool clocks and the variety of pillows and colors I would incorporate…. when she brought up a good point. That was very far from my original simplistic plan of beige and gray bedding with a lavender pillow. I think my creative genius turned quickly into madness and I need to reign myself in again.  Everything in my house does not need a personalized touch by me.  Especially since that means that none of it will get done and then I’ll be crying and buy some cheap crap because I have given up.

Next paragraph….

I am now trying to post handmade items daily or as I complete them. I am still testing to see what will sell and what my cliental will be demanding of me.

The first peice sold in a few hours so I think I am on the right track. I’ll keep plugging away and hopefully will be going to LA for some fabric really soon.

SOLD today:

Another Day, Another Cooking Injury

20 11 2008

Within the last 7 days I have burned myself twice while cooking. Sucks. Good thing I have the ultimate natural cure for unbearable 2nd degree burns- Honey. Yes… Honey. It does not work for a few hours, but once it does work the burn actually causes no pain anymore, heals nicely and does not get infected. I am no Dr but to me that’s a fantastic quick fix. This one was difficult to place gauze and waterproof tape over because it is a long blistered line across my entire hand, but I made it work. Good thing is I won’t have to do dishes for a week or so!
