Thank you for your headband purchases.

A few weeks ago I asked for you to purchase a headband so I could use all of the proceeds to make a donation to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. I sold seventeen headbands total for a donation of $680. Some of them I hand-delivered to local friends, and the rest I shipped out yesterday. I still have a few special orders left (a purple one, a lime one, and a red one) and I will do my best to get those sent by the end of the week.

Thank you so much. I was hoping to make $300 and we more than doubled that.

I made this donation because of your support in honor of Corazon Gonzaga DelMundo, my friend’s mother who tragically lost her battle with breast cancer last month. I was so blown away by your support for that goal. Thank you so much and if you ordered a headband, it is on its way to you now! I hope that you wear it knowing you are connected to millions of women who stand strong in support of each other. I am so happy to pass it on.

“I look just like a businesswoman!”

Girl confidence.   Just an evening going to our favorite spots in town–ice cream at eCreamery, drawing at the Joslyn art museum, slices of pizza at Baxter’s. I love nights with Alice. I owe her a monthly letter soon–I have a lot to tell Future Alice. We just spent a week in Chicago on our…

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.
