Saturday Life [05.09.15]: Family, Etsy, Exciting News & This Fall for the Bra-A-Week Challenge!
This week has been CRAZY!! and I have SO much to tell you all! I have: 1. that exciting news I mentioned a while back!, 2. Updates from the Etsy shop, 3. What’s coming up this fall for the Bra-A-Week Challenge and 4. Some family fun 🙂
First I’m going to start off with my exciting news!
I have been given the most amazing opportunity to travel to Connecticut to teach private bra-making classes! YAY! I’m heading out early next week and I’ll be gone for the week! I’m teaching a lovely lady that I know who is looking into designing a RTW collection, and needs some assistance on designing the patterns, figuring out fabrics, and understanding all the fundamental elements of bra-draft & design that will help make her bras exactly what she wants!
What this means on the blog is: for the next two Bra-A-Week Challenges, I’ll share with you two of the tester bras that I’ve made for the private lessons that show more about the impacts of direction of stretch, the amount of stretch and the impacts of different design elements! (YAY for bra theory!)
I will also be leaving my Etsy store in the very capable hands of my mom 🙂 although I will always be available for questions!
I can not wait for next Saturday Life – (when I’ll still be in Connecticut) and to share my week! 🙂 🙂
And that brings me to The Emerald Studio Etsy Shop!
Wow it’s been absolutely incredible!- if you didn’t know from my previous post, I launched my bra kits this week! And you have been loving them! I am so excited that I’m finally open and getting to share all my favourite bra making supplies with you! And this is only the start!!
This is my shipping department, beside my elastic department! lol
And here is a ready-to-go bra kit with small sized findings! I like to keep them all nice and tidy so they don’t get wrinkled on their journey through the post!
I have been absolutely loving running the Etsy shop so far! and I can’t wait to bring out more products! If there is anything that you know that you LOVE for bra-making and you think I’m missing, please let me know- I would love to grow this business with all of you in mind 🙂
Also a little bit of extra business stuff- I just got my “The Emerald Studio” Sign art digitized and put on my business cards!! I’m obsessed with them! YAY
You might be seeing more of this branding coming up!
Now the next order of business is the Bra-A-Week Challenge!
Lovely wine tasting in Prince Edward County 🙂
Some strolling around the vineyards 🙂
Some family feasting at my grandparents house 🙂
And last but certainly not least, a few hands of bid euchre that went late into the night 🙂 my favourite!
So that was my week! I hope you’ve all had a lovely week- please tell me about it in the comments 🙂
until tomorrow for the Bra-A-Week Challenge!
