Hair color!!

I need a change in my life.

Maybe a new haircolor? I'm not sure how much I can get away with at work, but might be able to do this deep red without too many waves.

I'm blonde right now but it would be fun to try something new!

Messy studio means busy machine

Messy messy sewing studio but I feel like I got quite a bit done today.

Taking 2 bags to work tomorrow, I may be teaching a class on how to make one (or both!)

My Creative Peace - Inspire Your Soul: We are all on a Quest

My Creative Peace - Inspire Your Soul: We are all on a Quest

So beautiful!

Children, husband, & bickering, oh my!

Tried to work today - operative word being tried.

Children were demanding attention, husband hovered like a stalker, and everyone was bickering!
Was a bad, bad day for work here at home. :(

On the up-side, I did have some new designs & ideas today for bags & clothing.

Listing tomorrow!!

Satin, satin, satin

Bought 3 different satins yesterday - a navy, a pretty burgundy, & a double-sided satin that's navy blue with pretty polka-dots on one side & polka-dots on stripes on the other.

I have worked a lot of the day on a reversible skirt out of the polka-dot satin. It's finished & super cute! Would be awesome as a "going out to dinner" outfit.

The burgundy is going to be sort of like this top by Gucci.

Trying to get motivated again

Well, I have truly lacked energy or motivation lately is not good.

I quit my one part time job in the hopes to have more time to dedicate to designing & sewing for my Etsy shop & creating artwork for my other Etsy shop.
But so far I am having a hard time controlling my depression enough to work.
For anybody who knows me personally, my life has been a big heartbroken mess. I was betrayed by my very best friend in the world in a cruel & cold way.
Subsequently, I am trying to change my life - from top to bottom.

I need to dust myself off & get busy!! I won't be able to change anything if I don't stay motivated & disciplined.

This is a pretty satin gown I made from a pattern printed in 1944.
