What bra works best beneath your t-shirts?

More often than not, I am always asked the same question. What type of bra works best with your t-shirt line? Here is the answer. My personal favorite is the Light Lift Front Closure Push Up by Wonderbra. Now keep in mind the bra being worn underneath the chocolate classic t-shirt modeled on the pic is a lightly lined demi (which is no longer made by Wonderbra), the light lift is a great alternative. Not only does it provide a nice lump free bust, it stays smooth and unnoticeable beneath most tees. Personally I would recommend purchasing this bra in the nude or black, and if your a matching undies girl like me, you should have no problems finding the perfect matching panty. Here is a hint: Go to the leggs hanes outlet and get a better deal $19.00 compared to $30.00. Remember, always get the correct size, which means your bra should be comfortable and free loose or cut in straps and bands.

Life As A Small Business Owner

Embarking on the journey that is my business, has been blissful and hard. Endless days of worrying how others will accept new designs, and endless sleepless nights of creating last minute ideas have become the norm. No longer do I ponder whether or not I should keep pushing forward, or slowly retreat back. I am at the stage in my business where I constantly repeat to myself "there is no way your stopping", okay. It's not hard to remember all the long hard hours I worked at unfulfiling jobs, just so I could fund my business.

Many people often ask if it's hard? What do you think? That's what I'd like to say, but instead I answer with the age old saying "anything worth having is worth fighting for". Unfortunately, I don't have a spicy tale of what has led to what i'd like to think is a profound moment in life. Unlike Coco and the many others who had their thriller love affairs, or dances with the unknown. I have led a pretty simple life up to this point. As my business heads off in different directions, so do I.

I feel like the wind, blowing which ever way Mother Nature tells me too. That's how I feel when I am creating. It's a feeling of Zen and rhythm. For those who don't know, these two things together represent life. It's the moment when I fall in to play with the sound of my viking working it's way through layers of beautiful fabric. And please don't get me wrong, I do also find zen and rhythm when creating jewelry. This also brings a sense of passion to me. Jewelry design and creation is my first love. Oh how I love using these hand of mine.

Over the next few days in between post I will be posting about ways to get the most out of your craft business, and how fulfilling it can be. Please feel free to comment, and ask any questions you would like answered.

Signing off, here's to Change Around the World.

A Day of Excellence

Coco Chanel

First, I must start by saying I loved the lifetime movie Coco Chanel. I was espicially taking by the young Coco and her ambitious ideas. Somehow that part of her legacy lives through me. There is not one person that I have ever met who does not like something Chanel. Now granted my Favorite perfume Chance was not created by the designer herself, but none the less, its ambiance screams Coco. With that said, I found myself basking in all my fashionable glory, enthused by the fact that I own 1930's Chanel style black dress. The funny thing is that I wore the dress recently to a party, and the first two words from most everyone, were Beautiful and Different. Thanks! What else could I say? Earlier this summer wore a very sleek Chanelesque vintage dress. Looking back at the photos, I think Miss Chanel would be proud.

New Items

New Items are arriving in our boutique. Recently I decided to expand our brand, and with that came the idea of aprons. Not just any aprons, gorgeous(my very own pattern) retro style ones. The coolest thing about these aprons is that I used a variety of unique fabrics, and snazzy embellishments. Also, these sweet baby girls, had the pleasure of being sewn on my semi-new Emerald 183 (I'm ready to move on up). The stitching details are to die for as well as sassy feminine cut. Wear these just for fun, or to actually protect your clothing. I hope to soon add a few baby items to the boutique. Lord knows I could go crazy making things for all of your sweet baby girls. Any who, I will be checking back in later to see if any one has entered the contest.

Yes, I know I am supposed to be resting, but I could not help myself. This morning I read an article about the predictions for the winter ( mother nature dances to her own tune), and I am so anxious for snow. Don't call me crazy, and please don't laugh. I'm serious. Anyone who knows me, will tell you that I love cold white snow. There is something about the peace it brings when it falls. With that said, I have been seriously thinking about making some warm and cozy cold weather goods, for this winter. Anything you want in particular? Let me know.

Sew Mama Sew........ You Say

Well it's been a chic pink minute since I have updated the blog ( forgive me... pretty please), so here's what's been up. First, as most of you know I not only run this pretty little business of mine, but I also run a Farmers Market. Go figure. So anywho, the awsome village faire just played out and I have to say, things went well. In the meantime ( before the village faire) I have been working non-stop on some very beautiful new fall items. My most favorite is...... well I don't have just one. If you have paid a visit to the site, than you have seen my super cute, very girly t-shirts. When I say that these shirts are soft I am not lying ( Promise). On top of that the feminine couture style cut is out of this world. To match the first batch of shirts, I also created the " Gracie Bag", which is super cute. It features durable quilted material, and lots of swanky detailing. To match I also created a few more bags to match the tote, because we all know that some ladies need a lot of stash bags. Lo.l. With that said, I finally finished two of Retro style aprons, I have been working. And boy are they cute. If I don't sell them before this weekend I will post some pics and list them for sell on ETSY. New wallets and stash bags will be coming to ETSY soon, its just that every time I make a few, they sale before I can list them on ETSY. If you can leave me some feedback, and let me know if there is anything special you want to see for the fall. I have some new fabrics and cameos on the way so stay tuned, and visit the shop often. By the way I want to say thanks to Sydnei at Simply Sentimental, she featured our shop on her Thursday blog post. Well I'm signing off, hoping to get rid this allergy fit I am having and back to making hip goodies. Until tomorrow, have a blessed day and stay hip.
