Fashion Friday: Watercolor art as fashion

Watercolor flowers Series B Square Dress. My grandmother was a very high fashion lady. I always remember her matching outfits, including shoes (cute mules) and casual pant/top assembles.  I’d like to think she’d love wearing this comfortable yet versatile dress.

The dress is made with the finest 100% Silk crepe de chine in the world, inspired by using real flower petals with a watercolor overlay on paper and scanned to the computer.

Fashion Friday: Umbrella Style

Periodically when my online stores advertise amazing sales, I take advantage of them to purchase my own products. I love ordering from my different stores for several reasons, the most important one being quality control.

It’s very important that anyone ordering my designs receive beautifully made items. My two, 3 year old tote umbrellas were still in working condition but totally beat up so imagine my utter delight spotting a super sale offer in my inbox. I immediately decided to order the larger hook handle umbrella rather than another small tote.

Less than three weeks later my package arrived. Oh boy! :-) I took several minutes to open the box as I wasn’t sure how it was packaged and I didn’t want to damage it by accidentally cutting the umbrella. Word of caution, it was tightly wrapped in plastic. I was extremely careful removing the plastic, wow, what a process but so worth it once it was free and opened to 43 inches in diameter and 35 inches length.

The first rainy day had me smiling during my entire commute and yes that’s a selfie of me in the elevator – isn’t it great. LOL

Contact me using the form below. It’d love to collaborate on a design with you!

It’s a gray, gray day

It takes a lot to overshadow my normal optimism however today was that day. I received an email that I could only bear to read the first paragraph before placing in a special folder to maybe read at some point whenever. If ever. Reading lots of you, you, you is not my idea of how to tell someone how you feel. It puts me on the defensive so rather than read it all and respond I am removing it to a special spot. If they really need a response they can contact me. We can then set up guidelines on how to discuss whatever needs to be discussed. It took me a while to get back on an even keel and that’s where I intend to remain.:-)

Big bold colorful rainbow stripes for Mom and Baby

There’s nothing worse than sending your child to daycare only to pick her at the end of the day to find that someone permanently “borrowed” their handmade crochet baby blanket. True story.  Now, creating eclectically fun and uniquely designed baby gifts such as this vibrantly colorful rainbow stripes diaper bag online is amazing. Personalizing with a name  or special text will help the daycare provider know whose bag belongs to who. Mom can enjoy a fun bag with complementary flips, earrings and necklace.

My granddaughter just told me she likes pastels so up next is re-designing this print for her baby due this December. G Ma is on it!
