Photos from this week

I’m on day 135 of wearing the same dress every day. Using Eucerin’s Redness Relief line for my rosacea which has helped a lot. I just finished the first tube and I see a big difference in my complexion. The winter weather seems to be throwing me for a little bit of a loop again though.

Took some practice photos for a big upcoming project with Sarah

Dave and I went on a date and he got me a new lipstick. So much better than flowers or jewelry and such a nice surprise. I picked a good guy!

I found this box on our counter and asked Alice what it said. She said “It’s my name! A-L-I-C-E!” I can sort of make it out there. She’s doin’ good!

And this little face makes me smile every day. The hat helps, too.

I hope you had a lovely weekend and that you’re capturing all the moments as annoyingly as you wanna.

    Same dress every day? I think I missed this project…did you buy a bunch in different colors?

    I LOVE that lipstick idea. I love practical gifts too – I’d be way more flattered to receive a lipstick than flowers!

      Nevermind! Went through the archives and refreshed my memory. Love it!

      yes! I bought two of them in September and now, thanks to watching eBay, I have about 11. I’m writing something more substantive about it this week.

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.

1. A skull and crossbones drawn by Alice. "It means 'Pirate.'" 2. Before dinner with Rebecca Forsyth at Gordon Ramsay Steak in Las Vegas, my favorite restaurant ever. Maybe we'd had a few by that point. I think Rebecca looks so gorgeous here! A true living doll.
