Behind the scenes work for a private client . . .
Feeling like I might be ready for Spring . . .
Happy Hump Day! How is this Wednesday treating you? I’ve definitely got enough work to keep me busy, but I realize that even with keeping myself busy, my heart is just hurting. I know that death is something that takes time to get over, but sometimes I just wish I could turn my off my brain + emotions and be a robot, LOL. I realize it could be so much worse, but nevertheless, I am in it and I know I just have to go through it. I’m super thankful for work and the new projects I am working on though! GATHER South is swiftly approaching and the RSVP’s are flowing in. I’m excited to come together with other entrepreneurs in support of each other and our businesses!
HAVE A GREAT WEEK!!
South Pasadena, the new location of my design studio + showroom!!
Hey guys! Hope all is well in your world. Things have been crazy busy lately and I have been doing a lot of plotting, planning and a lil bit of packing over here. Why you ask? Well, I’m super excited to share with you that, come Friday, my “bedudio” (the word I made up for the “bedroom studio” that I have worked out of for the last few years) will close it’s doors to all working activity. Don’t fret, what that actually means is that I am gearing up to move said “bedudio” into a real. live. workspace. that is NOT inside, near, adjacent to, attached or even in the same city as my bedroom! It’s definitely a milestone for my business and something I have been diligently working towards and praying about for some time now. I’ll be sharing more about it and bringing you guys along for the ride in the coming weeks. In the meantime, have a happy Wednesday!!
work in progress . . .
Steadily working away quietly on some new items. I’m excited to share them with you when the time is right. Hope this summer has been treating you well. It’s been a minute since I’ve posted. We have been traveling and immersed in summer activities with the kiddies. The break has been good for me, but now that my brain is getting back in to work mode, I’m allowing myself to miss working, LOL. Anyway, I’m hoping the month of August has many blessings in store for you and yours!
I have a serious love-hate relationship with my phone . . .
Currently inspired by this beautiful, super soft blue leather . . .
Hey guys, I hope your Wednesday is going well. I’ve been out of the office a lot these past few weeks, I feel like there are so many things that are falling by the wayside! It’s definitely a juggling act, and I’m hoping to get the balancing act back on track soon . . . or not. Lol. In the meantime, I have been working to add some new pieces to the collection for Summer. I’m really excited (as I always am when working on the design portion of my job). This is the part that gives me life. Last Friday I spent the day at Wisdom Elementary, participating in Career Day. One of my best friends is a 4th grade teacher there, and she invited me to come and speak to a few of the classrooms. The children had a lot of great questions and one of the questions that I kept getting was “What is your dream job?” It actually was funny to me, because I had the same answer every time I was asked: THIS!!! THIS IS MY DREAM JOB!!! I am doing exactly what I want to be doing, and No, I do not like every aspect of it. In fact, there are parts of it that I hate! (babysitting contractors to get me my s*&%! before my delivery dates, revising styles to fit within the allotted costs for the line, selling, and tracking down pricing for materials and pretty much anything having to do with a phone or making phone calls to name a few) but there is always some aspect of what we do that may not hold the most pleasure for us. Perhaps those are the parts we need to grow in, or become stronger in. Regardless, I’m happy to say that the good, and the fulfillment of my job outweighs the bad.
PS. is there anything in particular you would like to see added to the collection, made from that beautiful blue leather above? Share with me in the comments section below!
