Valentines Day plans are simple this year. Work, clean, cook. I may even make a card... but let's not push it.
John and I consider ourselves extremely frugal; which I love and hate. But, on days like today, I'm grateful if I'll find a bouquet on the table, where in my youth I'd think he was stingy or didn't REALLY love me.

We've been rocked this week. We had our next steps planned out until a friend of ours, very much in a tone of love and concern, expressed that we might be getting ahead of ourselves. It's been a lot of emotional honesty this past week, which is good and draining. And on top of that, I've been having a mild cold/allergy attack that is bringing on lots of fatigue. So, dear friend, please pray for us and clarity for the steps ahead. 

Hope you are having a sweet day.

Mid-week Update

My dearest Megan, who is a best friend and a go-to model for me is turning 26 today. We're hosting her and her boyfriend tonight and I'm really excited to spend some time out of the office decorating and making a meal. John and I ate cereal for dinner last night. I was tired and had given up on real food.

And now for a few photos of us from our 6+ year friendship:

I'm having a hard time believing it's Wednesday already. So much attention to sewing this week that I haven't been doing much else.

I have been taking breaks in between custom orders to work on Spring things. I'm feeling the stress of not having anything fresh for Spring in my shop... and it's only February. But, that's how it is in this fashion world and I must follow suit.

I will be so happy when I have a few of these available. They take such a long time to make, that I want to make sure I stock all the sizes before I put them up in the shop. Probably in less than a months time. Fingers crossed, everyone.

Customer Appreciation- Kari

Kari had a custom white heart cut out dress made for her reception. I love when brides slip into a classic white dress for dancing. I honestly wish I would have known about this possibility as I definitely would have done the same. I dance like crazy (seriously, I look crazy) and had a rough time dragging that bustle around.

Here she is when she first got it (I just love her mustard bathroom and that you can see the front and back in one shot) and then at her reception.

Thanks so much for sharing these with me Kari. You were so sweet to work with and you look stunning!
