Shhhhh

It’s been awfully quiet around here lately.  I wish I could say it was because I’ve been doing exciting and fabulous things….but, really, it’s just been a lot of sewing and painting.

I did manage to sew up a few things for myself that have been in constant rotation.  These oversize t-shirt style tops are pretty much my go-to for the summer (and, MAN, summer is here in the South!):

I also ordered a ton of jewelry, both on etsy and forever21 online, so I’ve been playing with new necklaces and earrings.

I rarely buy anything new for myself, and it’s even MORE rare for me to sew anything for myself.

Of course, I was WILDLY optimistic in my cutting out of things for myself and still have 3 entire skirts that need to be sewn–but those will have to wait for evening and weekend work.  Orders and photo shoots come first. 😉

Speaking of shoots–I finished up the second painting for the upcoming shoot:

AND I found a good deal on the PERFECT SHOES for the models:

Luckily the model who will be in the red pair has the same size foot as I….so those will most likely end up in my closet.

Off to package the weekend orders, hit USPS and then SEW-SEW-SEW!  Have a fabulous Monday, my friends!

The Weekend

Shots from over the weekend:

Working on some sideshow-banner-inspired artwork for an upcoming shoot:

This is the second one, which you can barely see (even with the wacky editing filter I used), but I had to share it due to the Buster Keaton photo-bomb:

The arugula in the garden was just BEGGING me to make one of our fav salads, Arugula-Fennel:

We worked a lot in the yard, as evidenced by the mountain of limbs/fronds/weeds that we left behind:
