Letter to Alice no. 32

As I look back over the letters I’ve written you in the past, I feel like there’s a theme of reassurance, joy, and calm in the gifts you give me as your mother. You seem to always make my life easier exactly when I need it most. My heart is always yours, and it will always be yours, in every world, in every life, in every drawing you make, in every dream you have.

Progress report: A muted jewel tone bouquet

I've got the thread pile and pincushions back out on my lap and I've got a bazillion movies queued up on Netflix, and that can only mean one thing--I'm back in the saddle doing some more bridal bouquets! Here are some flowers I finished tonight that shows the first phase finished. Next come the buttons, choosing the perfect color and shape for each flower to compliment the bride's vision for the color and tone of the bouquet. After that, each flower gets stemmed and arranged, and then I start working on filler flowers and leaves which are added last. The colors used in these flowers might seem kind of all-over-the-place, but once the buttons are added and they're arranged together, it will look very cohesive.

New for March: My favorites!

It's that time of year when we're starting to get a lot of new things into the shop, but this season is even more exciting to me because so many of our designers are brand new to us as well. I'm noticing a theme throughout my favorite picks--lots of words and messages. I generally think it's good to let your clothes speak for themselves, that they don't need to speak for you, but a playful message here and there (especially one of our enamel lapel pins on a conservative business suit?) can be memorable in a good way.
