Rough Spots and Promos




Getting prepared for next month's SB swap, which would be my first! Ordered adorable vellum mini envelopes and buttons. Got the buttons from Busy Beaver. Their website is awesome, and they really are good, fast, and cheap! Great place. Was also happy to find that a couple of the people behind Busy Beaver are RISD alums. It's always a nice fact to find.

It's been rough lately. Things with the Sig. O. are not very good. Whenever we go through long periods of time not speaking to each other, it reminds me of my senior year of high school, when my boyfriend at the time went to college and after not calling for a little while, decided that he didn't love me anymore. It's not a good feeling.

I'm awaiting a couple of reviews, one from Mommies With Style and Thrifty Boutique Jewelry. I hope they're good. =)

Recently discovered Emiliana Torrini and I love her. New fav. song: Sunny Road. Also really really want Jem's album, Finally Woken. Eee.

My Wristlet is Finally HERE!





The stinky part about ordering something from Canada is that it takes what feels like an ETERNITY to get here! But it's so worth it when it's something like my new cutey wristlet!

Busy, busy!



Since the launch of the shop, I've been scrambling to do a bunch of things. I realized I was burning myself out though, so I had a nice break this past weekend at a friend's house. A lovely slumber party that lasted 2 days.

Now that I'm back, there's lots to do:

- Clean. This place is started to be unbearable.
- Work on the Spring/Summer line.
- Finish the Press Kit
- Send out samples for various fashion places to review.
- Finish the Sig. O's website

Start shopping!

A Crafty Girl's Best Friend

So I did a trade with a wonderful seamstress-- a logo for some sewn stuff. But I didn't know what to choose, so she came up with this amazing apron for me:




Perfect for business cards!


Knitting needle pockets, wow.


One of her ceramic buttons!


One of 2 big pockets..


And the other big pocket.






I am in love.
