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.

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!
