outtakes from our shoot for Omahype’s 2012 cat calendar

Posing in a cat calendar was never on my bucket list, but maybe it should have been! Omahype, a local website that promotes all the cool stuff going on in the arts scene here in Omaha (their office is in my building!), recently put out their first annual cat calendar with photographer Daniel Muller. The calendar features photos of Omaha artists, business owners and musicians as well as, of course, their cats.

I love the picture that ended up in the calendar–it’s in our bedroom shot through my vintage mirror, and shows my racks of dresses behind me. But here are a few outtakes from the shoot Dave and I did with Daniel Muller along with our cat, Turbo. He’s a four-year-old tabby cat.

The calendar also features tons of other cool people with their cats, like Rachel Jacobson, founder of Film Streams, vegan chef and author Isa Chandra Moskowitz, Nate Welker from Saddle Creek Records, and more. If you want to purchase a calendar, they are available online for $20!

Me: Nanette Lapore dress, Odille blouse, FCUK sweater, Target socks

    DAVE!!! How cool of you to don the tiger/cat costume!
    Love the shot with Dave draped over the chair, in a very cat like pose, looking at Turbo, in a very catlike way, and the very fun shoes, placed just so, in a very Megan like way!

Hello Fearless: My friend Sara’s new company for female entrepreneurs, and an interview with me!

Several years ago (probably around the time of the first Big Omaha conference) I met Sara Davidson through the Silicon Prairie startup community, and as two creative (and outspoken) women in the community we became fast friends. I remember one time in particular when I was going through my divorce, I was at a party…

The Sewists: A beautiful new craft & design book by Josephine Perry

After over two years in the making, crafter/artist/author Joesphine Perry's beautiful new book The Sewists: DIY Projects from 20 Top Designer-Makers is available for pre-order! I'm incredibly excited and honored to be one of the featured designers, along with several of my crafty design idols including Julie Jackson of Subversive Cross Stitch and Jaime Jennings and Amber Corcoran, the girls from Fancy Tiger. When I received the book in the mail today I was first struck by the beauty of the cover and elegant simplicity of the project layouts. It even comes with a CD with all the templates.

Things I’ve Learned Trying to Break Into Plus-Sized Retail

I used to think that retailers that didn't carry plus sizes were deliberately excluding a huge segment of the market, but as a small retailer that is trying hard to offer those sizes to our customers, we've learned so much about the extended sizing landscape in ready-to-wear fashion.

DIY: A Fabric Flower Crown from my book, Fabric Blooms!

Crowning Glory Rose Bouquet Headband

One of my favorite trends right now are flower headbands. They're whimsical in a tall, teased-up hairdo, and they can be sweet and demure on a favorite little girl in your life. I made this headband in shades of yellow and pink roses, but once you get the hang of this technique you can re-create it with other flower types, different colors, and other fabrics for a completely different look that's personal to you. Each step is included in the photo below, so you can sort of see how the process looks as you create the headband. These instructional photos are one of my favorite things about Fabric Blooms--they're beautiful, easy to follow, and they were a lot of fun to style with photographer Justin Limoges! Thanks too to my model, Sarah Lorsung Tvrdik aka Fash Flood aka my business partner!
