And it's already November!!!

Well, well, well. I know what you are thinking! Where the hell did she go? She puts up this new website, blabs on about Halloween, and then...crickets.

I have to tell you that I have been cheating on clothing with table centerpieces. I am in charge of decorations for my sons' school silent auction fundraiser and have been making hat themed table decorations. There are only fifteen, but each one had to be different and eye-catching. I heard rumors that they may get auctioned off. I hope so, I never want to see them, and their glitter-bearing brims again. Sorta. So I will be getting back to work on stocking my website. I figure I will finish doing that by 2026, unless the world ends in 2012.

I finally finished the last centerpiece today, and will try to take nice photos of them on the tables, before they get trashed. Ok, I can't lie, I am pretty proud of them.

But let's move on, shall we?

I started researching a dress for a customer, which involves watching a certain segment of a movie over and over, to see the dress from every angle. Then I sketch, make fabric and time estimates and am now waiting for the next step. Will put the sketches up as soon as I know if this moves forward!

I still have a pile of things and sketches of outfits to get to...soon. Usually, I wll start on them, and then get a request for a custom item. So whenever I want to do custom work, I just start on the pile. ;)

While you are waiting for truly awesome and breathtaking work from me, you should check out this shop - Aull About You

Cute, CUTE jewelry, especially if you like glitter, skulls and hearts. Or if you need a gift for someone for the holiday season, you might want to start clicking. And here's where you go to do all that fun stuff:

You're welcome Tiffany!

Lol Pili! You have no idea how many movies I end up watching in order to figure out clothing. I am not complaining, though!! And any time, Chicago, any time!
