Design Work & News


I’ve got a few tidbits of exciting news to share with you today!!

I did some design work way back when for Carrie of This Mama Makes Stuff. She’s launching a new blog the end of this month, and I just can’t wait to share it with you all!

I’ve also been keeping busy this week while waiting for labor to come by hand-calligraphing a few things for another client. It’s going to be a while before I can really show it off, but here’s a little preview:

Besides fun design stuff, I’ll be speaking about my thrifting/refashioning experiences at the Sewing Summit this fall! I can’t wait. From the looks of it, there’s a pretty rad line up of ladies that will be teaching. I’m honored to be teaching along side them!

Since I’m sure you’re sick of hearing pregnancy updates, the doc bumped up the induction date from next Friday to Wednesday. We’ll see if I’ll make it to Wednesday. In the mean time, I’m going to make a little paper chain to remind me that the end is near! Have a great weekend!

      I still can’t believe how cute you are dressing being this close to the end! I did weekly pictures of my pregnancy progress and the last 2 weeks I took the pictures on the couch! That’s right, I didn’t even stand up, let alone get dressed! You do look great though!
