Setting up the shop

Got my Google Analytics set-up ...k, thanx.

No, seriously, I'm interested in this kind of market research. It makes sense and you can't argue with numbers. Soooo, let's see who REALLY visits the site.

To style, or not to style...

Blending theromanceofstylewiththefunkofindividuality...or do I, really.

In my dreams, I see all of these beautiful things. They don't go together, but yet they do. There is color and texture. I drool. I wake up. I am inspired. I try to sketch and it comes out alright, the idea is there. Then, I cut, I sew, and I place the garment on my form. And, it looks great - except, it is not what I set out to create. So, how did this beautiful piece end up looking like this? Am I really a "classic" at heart?

I guess I am. I always have been. Why? Because I'm too anal and Type A to be a true designer. I won't let spontaneity and abstract find its way into my work. There must be process, clean lines, symmetry and such. Otherwise...well, I don't know, but there just must be.

So, then why am I in love with all things madcap. Why did my heart skip a beat when I saw Marc Jacob's spring release?

April's Eco-friendly Fabric Tip:

Your emery board can remove small stains from suede. Gently rub the file across the stain a few times to remove the mess and rejuvenate the nap.

Day at a time

No, you're right. It wasn't that bad. It's actually kind-of fun. Is anybody out there? Echoooo.....

And, my innocence is given away...

So, I am joining the masses. I have been successfully peer pressured (or, maybe market pressured). I am a follower, a bandwagoneer....a blogger.

This is my first time. It's a little scary. Maybe someone can tell me just how easy is it to forget that this is not just between me and my laptop. How soon will it be before I am type-ranting and all of my personal business is in the streets, ha! Well, I guess we'll find out soon enough.

Thank you and goodnight!
