Just some random pics. Designing a new homepage on my website. I want to really promote my motto " There is beauty in individuality Just Be... and you fill in the dots! i think it all stems from having a twin sister and having to dress alike a lot. As we got older we got smarter, more clothes if we each got different stuff. My mom hated to sew so she had us take sewing lessons when we were really young. I got good at altering,hemming and repairing clothes when I was about 12 and was making prom dresses, swim suits and tailoring my dads clothes by the time I was 15. I remember thriftstore shopping in High school and coming home with these big bags of clothes. We would shorten, alter or add , to make totally one of a kind pieces. I wish I had kept some of them now, very grunge street cool 80's stuff. I started selling altered and my own designed clothes at swap meets in San Diego when I was 16. It was cool to see people wearing pieces that I had made around.
This new year i want to get back into designing really unique pieces that just have have elements to them. Looking forward to 2010!!

My girls want to keep all of the Pettiskirts that we get done.They are so fun! They would be fun to wear for Christmas. The gray one is actually a fun leopard print.
And yes that is our new overnighter bag, so many people have put in orders to use it for their temple bag.

Some fun shows this week. These are just different enough that you would want to check out both of them if you can! I had a lot of new stuff made up over the weekend so there will be some fun new vintage gypsy purses and fancy holiday skirts there.
Had a wonderful time at Beehive Bazaar and Art Market this weekend, I don't know how these gals pull it off. They just have to deal with vendors, buyers, marketing and check out.... It's all a little bit crazy!

I've been sewing like crazy this week!! Such pretty velvets and Chenilles are being made into lovely bags. The skirts are on a little more Fancy note. But I still wear some of my lace skirts with my Motorcycle boots. The little girls skirts are really full and have tulle!!
Anyone living in the Boise area, there is a fun boutique that my stuff is at. Email me if you want directions.
Hope to see you at some of these shows. There are some really amazing Artist out there!
