Busy Busy!

I just got a client who wants me to make a really elegant cocktail dress for a very special occasion. I'm really excited to do it, it's going to turn out beautifully! We're getting the fabric and supplies today so I can get moving on it, it has to be finished in two weeks!

On top of that, I've been doing some major research for my upcoming shows. I've been tearing out ideas from magazines and looking at fabrics. I need to figure out what I need for the shows so I can order the fabrics and get going on that soon too!

Needless to say, I'll be busy for the next few months. I have my daugther's 1st birthday next month and then we're visiting California. The month after that there's a show and then after that there's another show! I'm hoping that these shows really help my business take off, even if it's just custom orders or selling a few things in local boutiques. I plan on making my way down to Bar Harbor to visit Danielle at Macey's so I can sell some of my items there!

2009 Resolutions...

So I'm very late on actually writing down my goals for this year, but I know it's important to do it so I can get myself motivated and have a vision in mind. I've already started on two of them, and they're both HUGE things so I'm very happy about that. Here's the list:

Participate in any event that has fashion shows
Sell handmade items in local boutiques (Bella Luna)
Have a exercise regimen- and stick with it!
Get my portfolio together
Get rid of clothes I don't like or wear
Re-build wardrobe with basics
Have more "date nights"
Get fresh flowers once a week
Get new bed/furniture/decorations for rooms
Move into a good-sized apartment
Join a mommy group of some sort to meet new people
Read a new book every month

As I think of more things, I'll post them up. But here's a general list. I think it's a good start!
