WOW, the last post was on November 11th!!! And, I said I was going to keep up this time! Well, a lot has changed since then. We finally got working on the addition of our house again and it is almost done! I have a studio now to work in and bring people to. a little posh was part of the Ceadarburg Junior Women's League Wearable Art Show and I was SO surprised at the response! How incredibly flattering. And...the greatest news was 2 days before Christmas we found out that we are expecting baby number 4! I was shocked needless to say. I was seriously heading to the Y more often, trying to watch what I was eating....but I just seriously thought that the 30s were now catching up to me and my metabolism was changing! AHHH....nope, we were 7 weeks pregnant! Pregnancy and me do not get along very well, but the other 3 kids, a wonderful supportive husband and now this business is keeping me from getting too down and out.

I will be back to post more soon, but for now I see that I should change the layout of the site to be maybe a bit more is looking a bit like Christmas on here!

it all comes to a hault!

So...I was so excited that I started my Christmas pieces finally and a couple are already listed on etsy. For weeks I have been sketching what to do especially with Moda's is simply GORGEOUS...and that is lightly! I would feel the fabric, look at my sketches, lay the fabrics in different orders and repeat that over again...until Thursday night when I finally decided to cut it and not only cut, but also had time to serge and iron much of it! The goal was to drop off a few pieces at my friends house who is helping me with the photography...until the weekend hit!

Caroline went to the neighbor's house on Thursday morning so I could get a few things cleaned up around the house before our 11am appraisal...another long story. Before bringing her over there the mother called to tell me that her son woke up with a bit of a cough but I was still welcomed to bring her over if i wanted. Well...I am not one to get all freaky about colds and sickness, the kids will get it, it, I will admit that I was being a little selfish in hopes to just get a few more things done before the appraisal.

FAST FORWARD...Friday morning, I get a call from my neighbor, she is at Children's hospital with her son who was admitted via ambulance with pnemonia a complication from H1N1...AHHH!! So, I am on the phone with nurses and doctors and no one has advice other than to watch and treat any symptoms that may arise...and get this it can take up to 5-10 days to show what are we supposed to do until then? So I am all worried about who we may infect unknowingly. Anyway it came...Sat she started with a fever and a slight cough, but Sunday all 3 children have fevers and coughs and by Monday morning so does mommy and she is throwing up! AHHHH, quick reminder of why I should not have a 4th baby. My heart would be in it, but my body is out for the count!

So...back to the Christmas outfits...they are still laying on the ironing board where they were left 4 nights ago just begging to be finished. I can't wait to share them!

OK, so back in March I said it was too long since I last blogged and here we go again! That was over 6 months ago! UNREAL! Time is flying...but so much good has happened. We are now selling in a well known children's boutique in Mequon, PSues. I am very excited about this and the owner, Pam is nothing short of a wonderful, wonderful person!

I am now going to make a goal of getting things in my etsy store, I reserved that name now I believe over a year ago and have yet to really use it. Also, on my to do list is to revamp this blog and make it fit my style.

I owe a big thanks to Candace for getting my butt in gear and pushing me to do this, I think it shall be good. I go to work on some images and get things rolling...stay tuned....I vow to not let it go 6 months again!

Oh, wow! It has been way too long since I have last posted. I have been sewing up a storm for my "mock" trial run trunk show on Wednesday. I am trying to get my samples done and as I am sewing one, my head is going in circles thinking of the next one I want to sew. I finally decided to start a sketch book to draw them instead of stopping and cutting more fabric. I have also been OBSSESSING ove fabrics...right now I am working with 4 different collections but would really like to add another 3-4...still hammering that out. I feel like as soon as I do it will be July and I wil need to start showing the fall line! OK, now I am feeling overwhelmed again! Be back soon with photos of my pieces in progress, gotta go sew!
