Hello everyone! It has been awhile since my last post during spring break. I've been home for awhile now and have been spending my time cleaning and de-junking this place. I feel like I haven't really devoted a good amount of time on this for a couple years. I've been through two moves in just over a year and every time I moved it felt kind of rushed. Also, since I am now only making my own line of clothing and have stopped sewing historical clothing, I want to get rid of extra fabric that has been sitting around for years. I can always buy fabric if I need it, but I hate having boxes and boxes of fabric that I'll never use. So now I have a pile of boxes in the living room that need to GO. I haven't figured out quite yet how I'm going to get rid of them. Might do a little yardsale online, but we'll see. Today I'm going to clean out the closet in my bedroom and probably make a pile of clothes to get rid of as well. Maybe I will have one big yardsale. ha! Maybe it's finally time I buy myself a little cart so it's not a pain every time I hike over to the post office. Anyway, it feels so good to finally get rid of things I never use or papers that I printed long ago and have forgotten about. Having a clean place means I am more productive and a lot more happy. So I'm being ruthless with my stuff and getting rid of as much as I can.
In other news, I bought myself a new brightly colored lipstick yesterday and I must say, I think I've found my favorite lipstick! It's called "Love That Pink" in the Moon Drops line, by Revlon. It's the classic line that has been around for years and I know why! It goes on perfect and stays in place, which is a must for me, since I really haven't had a lot of experience wearing lipstick in my 27 years. :) But I want more experience with it, since I just love how it looks! It's so classic and makes me feel so pretty. That saying really is true; if you're feeling a little down, just go pick up a new lipstick and "voila!" all is well again! I think my next lipstick purchase will be from this same line. They have some really fun colors like "Persion Melon" (I've heard this is the official Pan Am girls lipstick color) and "Orange Flip." Yum!
In other news, I have been really itching to sew some clothes for myself lately. It's been far too long since I've sewn clothing for my own wardrobe. So I'm thinking a lot about that. Maybe I'll do more outfit posts on here. I need to find a better place to take pictures, though. The radiator just is not very pretty. So hopefully I'll be posting more of my own sewing adventures and not just my shop sewing!
Speaking of the shop, I have the spring line all ready, but I wanted to take a little break to clean the house, which is why I'm keeping it to myself for a bit. Also my brother John is helping me clean up my website and make it look sleek and pretty. But I think you will like what I have for spring and summer. I even have a little special something to share that my brother John put together. Can't wait to show you! More on that soon!
Have a lovely Friday and weekend! xoxo
