Let’s just jump in, shall we? As if 3 months hadn’t passed…..
I (finally) jumped into 2016 and upgraded to an iPhone. First thing my sister said was “download Neko Atsume immediately”. I’m in love with the kitties! Obsessed with the kitties! Games that are adorable and require very little from me are high on my list of good times.
A few Mardi Gras pieces yet to finish up, a complete over-haul of the studio (I hope) and a new online shop are all on the horizon.
Happy Friday–weekend here I come! (after I finish this stack of orders….)
The Official Photos from the Mardi Gras shoot are in! Just in time for the season, as Fat Tuesday is almost upon us (one week from tomorrow!).
All items are now available (ready to ship or made to order) in my shop.

Just a sampling–the light was so perfect and the sky so blue this day!
After a long (looooooooong) and unintentional blog-hiatus, I’m back!
Really, that was a long time to be away.
Blame instagram–it’s so much easier to post a picture with a one-liner, and go about my merry way.
Also: business has been pretty kick ass since before Halloween, and I’ve been busy sewing (and upgrading my studio).
I figured some images from a Mardi Gras themed shoot I did this week would be in order for my first post back in this cob-web-filled space.
These are just images that I took–I’m anxiously (yet patiently) waiting for the final edits from Underexposed Photography, whom you’ll recognize from past shoots.

I can’t believe Mardi Gras is next week. Already!
In honor of the impending (and ongoing) festivities, some images from the recent (and thematically appropriate) shoot.
I’m rolling out the Trapped In Time Tuesday feature again, folks. Since it’s officially carnival time in these parts, I figured what better way to start than with a Mardi Gras accessory.
This is a tulle boa, made from strips of tulle that I cut and sewed individually to a sturdy center strip.
It has layers and layers of tulle sewn on both sides and is pretty fabulous, if I do say so myself.
You can find it in the etsy shop here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/127893659/boa-mardi-gras-boa-mardi-gras?ref=shop_home_active_7
And in the artfire shop here: http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/product_view/TrappedInTimeDesigns/8421085/boa_mardi_gras_boa_mardi_gras_costume_tulle_boa_scarf/handmade/clothing/costumes/fantasy
Another sneak peek–I can’t help it! Photographers keep sending me awesome images that I want to share!
This one is from a shoot that I loaned some items out for.
Bit of a Mardi Gras theme, and I can’t wait to see more!
A tulle boa for Mardi Gras.
Not listed in the shop yet–will get stock photos over the weekend.
One more custom order to go, and then it’s to the grindstone to get everything ready for my upcoming RAW fashion show and booth.
This was the first tulle boa I’ve done. Pretty result, but I don’t think I’ll make another.
Extremely fiddle-y and time-consuming. That baby is made up of strips of tulle (hand cut by yours truly) and individually sewn on in alternating colors of gold, green and purple.
Thank goodness for books on cd.
(if you’re interested in purchasing the boa, please comment or contact me)
