Playing Catch Up
Hello Friends! I feel like I am perpetually apologizing for my inconsistent blogging. But here is another I’m sorry for neglecting my blog. However, I have been super busy! And I thought I would put up a little photo diary post of what I have been doing the last month.
These cold winter months just call for lots of reading, so I have been diving into great reads just as Mindy Kaling’s Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? and Hemingway’s A Farewell to Arms. And I have been working on sketching some dress designs, I hope to start selling my own designs in my shop by the end of the year.
On Valentine’s Day I made a heart shaped brownies (all thanks to my Ma) for the Hubster’s class.
We have taken in a stray dog (Rocky) from our neighborhood because she was limping around on her front leg and the temperatures were getting down to -51 degrees Celsius. She’s only staying with us until she heals up, then we hope to find her a permanent home, even though she does fit in here with the family perfectly.
I have been slowly working on new pieces for my shop. I hope to have some great, sunny colored items for spring.
I have been experimenting with nude makeup. I have always been into super red lips and (well I can be honest) over done eye shadow. But lately I have done away with eye shadow, toned down the bright red lips and started adding a touch of blush. I love the effortless look, although I can promise you the red lips will be back.
I have been watching the gorgeous snow pile up outside my window.
And the hubster and I have been out and about enjoying this wonderful winter in our new town. We’ve built a mitchuap, gone to see his school kids play hockey and broomball, attended some great parties and jam sessions, and met a lot of cool people.
Also, I got the opportunity to work for Special Education Services at the school for a week. Something I hope to pursue more in the future.
What have you guys been up to? Tell me how you are getting through the winter months.
Meant To Be
Have you ever felt like a piece of clothing was made for you? Like a designer somewhere was imagining your body when they were making an item? That’s how I feel about this coat. A neighbor of mine had this old coat laying around and thought I could use the fabric for my shop. I went to take the lining out of the coat to make a hat with it, but instead I tried it on. I couldn’t believe it, it fits like a dream. I have never worn a coat that actually slimmed me down but this one does (if I do say so myself). Which is really nice considering I haven’t shed my holiday pounds yet…or the pounds I had intended to shed before that…
