Free-Fallin’ just came on shuffle.  What a nice day we had today.  75 degrees in NYC!! Global warming, man! I tried to play basketball, but all of the youths of the neighborhood invaded the courts. Oh well. Maybe when they’re off at school on Monday.

Any of these designs can be slightly altered to accommodate a size smaller, if need be.  Okay.  ;o) Time to get back to my taxes.

Yuck.

BIG ASS SALE

SERIOUSLY, EVERYTHING MUST GO.  DESIGNS PAST AND PRESENT:

in the words of the Mamas & the Papas, :

I used to live in new york city
Every thing there was dark and dirty
Outside my window was a steeple
With a clock that always said 12:30

Young girls are coming to the canyon
And in the morning I can see them walking
I can no longer keep my blinds drawn
And I can’t keep myself from talking.

At first so strange to feel so friendly
To say good morning and really mean it
To feel these changes happening in me
But not to notice till I feel it.

Cloudy waters cast no reflection
Images of beauty lie there stagnant
Vibrations bounce in no direction
And lie there shattered into fragments.

Young girls are coming to the canyon
And in the morning I can see them walking
I can no longer keep my blinds drawn
And I can’t keep myself from talking.

An Exit Statement…

I am taking a much needed break from fashion design…I’m giving California a try…   Please take advantage of all the sale has to offer and thanks for your support these last six years.  I’ve reached 1000 sales, which I never would have imagined when I first started.  Etsy has given me strength, beauty, love, support, true friends & a wonderful lifestyle where I can support myself sewing!!  Being able to share what I make has been a tremendous dream come true. I am someone who used to watch fashion tv and read countless magazines dreaming of cooler clothes than what was available in my small Pennsylvania town.  I used to sew and paint and sculpt and put together costumes… I would make my own clothes at 14 and courageously wear them to my conservative Catholic school on “dress-down days”.  One time, I wore a purple jersey drape top I made; and a snarky popular boy asked if I had made it.  Excitedly, I said yes, only to hear him say, “Well thank God, I would hope you would never pay money for that.”  Fourteen years later, I am a two-time almost contestant on Project Runway.  I got to meet Tim Gunn & Zanna Roberts twice, as well as Christian Sirriano.  I’ve been lucky enough to have gotten mention in Lucky Magazine, Bust Magazine, Style.com, the Martha Stewart Show, the Huffington Post, Daily Candy, The Awl, and others.

I’ve had fashion shows to rave reviews, I’ve sold at numerous boutiques, shows, fairs, etc.  I’ve taught sewing classes at Etsy and NYU.  I shared studio space with prolific designers and artists.  I sewed for The Row & Ohne Titel, as well as gotten to see shows firsthand, such as Rachel Roy.   Magic has happened. I can’t even recount all I have done or all that has happened.   I’ve never worked harder in my life and I have the grey hairs to prove it.  Life has been very satisfying being my own boss.  It’s also been remarkably challenging.  I am taking a leave of absence and leaving knowing I worked my absolute hardest and put my business first 90% of the time.  Life is what you make of it.  You can truly do anything you put your mind to.  Do what you love.  You only live one life.  Thank you for making these last six years magical.
