New Lives for Sweaters




I have been busy the last few weeks thinking up new designs to use with sweaters. Have been doing sweater skirts for quite a few years now and they are still quite popular. But I am no longer very enthused when creating them so thought it was about time to come up with some other options. So here is one of them. Still trying to come up with a name for them, I'm sure it will just pop into my head at some point.

Hair Accessories

One of my favourite pictures with my daughter. It is always fun to be a bit silly when you are working on taking product shots. And didn't you know wearing this many hair elastics at once is a new trend ;0)

Busy Sewing

 New batch of bloomers in the works.
 Some of the skirts I have been creating lately. 8 different panels so can actually be worn 8 different ways. All depends on which panel or panels you want to be more prominent.

This week I am concentrating on skirts in blacks and greys which are always wonderful coming into the winter season. Many will be made with repurposed golf shirts and will be a longer version of the ones in the pictures.

Open House


Having an Open House once again. This will be the second since I decided to rent a space for a studio outside of my home. Also decided it would be a nice time to have some friends over so they could show off what they have been creating. So the list of guest artisans include Holly Fox/Shackled Fae
                          Lisa Morris
                          Peter Paylor
                          Paula Brooks/Bark'NUp The Green Tree 
                          Annetta Batty-Pratt
                          Moira File/Stargate Cretaions


Here is a quick snapshot of the studio

What I have been up to Lately

 Making outfits for show in Cobourg that I organized for the Dumpster Diva Collective. Have been thinking about making some bloomers for a while so took this as the perfect opportunity.
 Made some new monsters which I am calling Acuties as they are based on an acute triangle. They had a total photo shoot which resulted in many wonderful shots. Below a few relaxing after a hard morning at the mushroom farm.
A quick photo of my set up at  Art Among the Ruins in Newburgh which was Father's Day weekend.

Also have been sewing lots, working on content for website, and dealing with everything else that has been presenting itself. That is what I have been up to lately :0)

Upcoming Website

Have been busy getting lots of product shots done for the website. Thus far have been concentrating on the accessories and a few of the new creatures I have been creating. Hope to get good pics of some of my skirts starting next week. Otherwise have been working on product descriptions and content for the website.
Inputting pics and product descriptions later today. With website up and running within the next week.

Here is a sample pic of the some of the new monsters I have been creating. Am calling them ACutie monsters as they are based on an acute triangle. Been developing a whole story to go with them especially after some of them did their photo shoot. ;0)

Busy, Busy

It has been extremely busy lately. Just finished help organize an event with the Dumpster Diva Collective  (www.dumpster diva collective.com) - 2nd Annual Garbage Bag Ball. Which went well.

Now it seems suddenly shows are upon me. This weekend is the County Terroir and Mother of All Crafts and next weekend brings the Mulberry Mayfair.

Life As I know It

Now that my studio is mainly done and that the hiccups that naturally occurred have been dealt with(mostly). It is on to cleaning out some old stock - hoping to do this at She Creates in Kingston tomorrow. Surprising the odd things one finds when moving and organizing supplies and stock.
All about keeping up the momentum.
Been working on the website and price charts for consulting aka Wardrobe Evolutions. It is time to get more structured so clients have a better understanding of the breakdown of fees. Also about me being better at managing my time effectively. 
Yesterday got some pictures done of a few of my latest creations which is definitely a step in the right direction. 
So that is my Life As I Know It At This Moment In Time.

New Work Space aka Studio.


 Start of new changeroom
 View towards front door
Been working on a new work space for the last month. Between my part-time job, family and trying to get the space sorted I haven't known if I am coming or going most of the time. But I am reaching the finish line on the space. I actually have a real change room(aweeesoome). Something I have been coveting for quite a while.
 My own oversize personal pinterest board
Walls painted
This coming week the plan is to get the space set up to actually create in and be able to schedule client appointments.
