Me Made May: Week 2

Me Made May: Week 2

Hi All,

Week 2 of Me Made May has come and gone, and I have to admit that I wasn’t quite as good at taking pictures of all my me-mades this week. I do wear me-mades every day, but a lot of the time they are repeats, or not super photo worthy (like my really old but really comfy sweat pants!). And some days I just don’t feel like having my picture taken. But of the days I remembered to capture: this is what I wore!

Reflections & Resolutions

 

Hi All,

 

2017, it’s already here. wow. 2016 seemed to be that year of a million little changes for me, and a settling process. The year before, 2015, was my year of HUGE changes, like starting my business, opening my studio and moving back home- it was a MASSIVE year. But I found that 2016 was the year when all the dust settled, and I figured out which direction was up again, and I hit the ground running and sorting out all the little details and the everyday realities that 2015 left out.

And all of that is okay with me, I felt very ready for that after 2015. I’m a detail-oriented person, and I love when I have my own little space and hours to myself to work away on all the details and sort things out- and there was (and still is) a never ending list of things to do! It was the year where I started to hit my stride in other some areas, and then totally fall off the bandwagon in other areas, and the year where I really started to question all of my choices and decisions and think about my life and business more holistically with more concrete goals and vision.

New Madalynne Kits & Christmas at The Emerald Studio

New Madalynne Kits & Christmas at The Emerald Studio

Hi All,

Christmas always seems to come with a little chaos, there are a million things to add to your to-do list, so many people to see- so many cookies to eat. I always seem to get out of schedule around this time, my posts are more sporadic and I feel like my brain is teeming with ideas and plans for the new year. For me it falls into that category of ‘a lot’ – a lot of everything. But through it all I have managed to do some fun Christmas things, AND put together a couple more beautiful bra kits!

 

I’ll start with the bra kits because they are the most exciting!!  I can’t believe how quickly the other kits disappeared (only one or two left!) So I thought it was about time I found some more beautiful stretch laces and made a few new kits!

I found these three beautiful laces that I knew would be perfect for some more of the halter bralettes!

And then I couldn’t resist making two more kits for the 8229 Bra pattern out of this new black lace that I love- and a black & Antique gold which is always a stunner!

Time for a Change

Time for a Change

Hi All,

 

So…. notice anything new?

 

OMG, it’s real, I got a new website! And let me tell you this has been a long time in the making, and has definitely been overdue.

I remember when I first chose my old blogspot blog, thinking that it would be just a hobby to fill my time while I sorted out my quarter life crisis and decided what I wanted ‘to do with my life’. I never thought at the time that it would become what it is today.
