Would somebody please stage an intervention for me? I have been CRAZY busy for the past couple of weeks, and it has led to some really scary mess taking over my house.  I need to clean, but instead I have been making new messes! 

Behold my office floor, at least that is what you should see in this picture.  I have another show coming up in a couple of weeks and I am super excited about the new pieces I am making, but this is just ridiculous!  I belong on "Hoarders," I think there is a dead cat under this pile (okay I don't have a cat, but it IS really messy).

Since I am publicly shaming myself into a cleaning spree I will also share this photo of one of the jackets I am working on so you can see I am not a total loser.  The show will be amazing.  We have a Mad Hatter's Tea theme.  There will be hats and all of my garments are going to have velvet or corduroy in them, they will feel fantastic!  I can't wait to see everything completed, so I guess I better get back to work.  If you live in the PNW come see us at the Anchor Pub in downtown Everett on Sunday March 10th.

Dropped Balls and Other Dilemmas...

When I decided to plan a fashion show for Valentine's Day with only one month to prepare I knew it was a little crazy.  But I figured, "what the hell?"  and I went for it.  Now that I am counting down the last 24+ hours to the show I am alternately excited and panic stricken.  I should be baking my second batch of brownies for the chocolate buffet right now, but somehow the morning has gotten away from me.  Does anybody else find they procrastinate worse at the last moment? 

Oh, well.  I know the event will happen, and it will be fun, and hopefully I can catch my breath long enough to enjoy it.  And, by the way I decided to debut my first ever burlesque clown act tomorrow night, because you know, I didn't have enough to worry about.  Wish me luck, especially with my juggling acts, you know the real one and the metaphorical one too.  Wink, wink.

If you're in the neighborhood, come see the show
