Monday's are Show and Tell day's at Make Mine Pink which I love! It's very fun to see what everyone is working on and get a small taste of what wares will so be offered on their sites.
This week, our Show and Tell is definitely more of a "tell". Today was a perfect day in my opinion! No, the weather wasn't perfect...a bit to cold and rainy for my taste, but still the day was just right, because Karen and I spent the day designing and playing with fabrics! Any day I can play in the fabric with a best friend...is a prefect day in my book! We are working on some new ideas, sewing our proto types and getting ready to launch a new line. We have allot more work to do before we'll get to the launching stage, but we are having a blast designing and working through this part of the journey. I think having "joy in the journey" is so important. What would be the motivation otherwise...money? Sales are always good, but for me at least, it has to be about more than money.
The other reason it's a perfect day is....I won Dianne of Mamas Pocketbook's blog contest! Whoo Hooo! She gave a way a Vintage pattern of the winner's choice from Mom's Patterns (up to $15.00 value) and of course some kind of little sewn goody from her! I'm so excited! Dianne is an amazing seamstress and textile designer, so I am thrilled and looking forward to having one of her items. I'll be like a kid in a candy store looking through Jan's site "Mom's Patterns - Vintage Sewing Patterns - Real Retro Fashion!" Too much fun for sure! Be sure and check out both these ladies wonderful sites.
Our other spotlight this week is on Sandra of Shabby Rose Cottage. She has a wonderful ezine called Everyday Chic where she offers decorating tips and points of interest dedicated to the shabby chic lifestyle. Take a look at her site and sign up for her wonderful ezine newsletter! I really love it!
