Since my last post, I have joined the ranks of the 30 year olds! I can fully say that I am quite happy with this change and for several reasons:
1) I am proud of my husband.
2) I love my husband.
3) My kiddos are cool, loud and funny.
4) I love my business and my customers. (you guys so totally rock!)
5) I weigh less than I did in high school. (what's not to LOVE about that?!)
So all in all, I'm quite happy with the state of things. I had a great birthday, splashed with homemade cards and cupcakes. Dustin made me coconut cupcakes with chocolate cream cheese frosting. From scratch. He's a keeper that one.
He also made me this:
It's fabulous, huh?
Since the start of my business, I've shuffled it from one room to the other, wherever there was space at the time. Now I am getting a full floor of the house all to myself. It's glorious... my first request was a HUGE worktable. Big enough to spread out patterns, strike offs (on the table right now!) sewing projects, and orders. In fact, it's big enough to hold a couple of those projects at once.
He's probably not going to be pleased with me showing it as is, because it isn't quite finished. A little more trim to the bottom, but I couldn't resist. I'm so thrilled with it! When the entire space is finished, I'll share.
The ends are super fab, as they are bookshelves with glass sliding doors. Here, lookie:
In other news-our local uber cool fabric spot hosts a local fashion competition each year. They describe it as "think of Project Runway, but with less drama." They have asked me to be a judge this year and I think I might have actually jumped up and down when I said yes. It starts tonight! They actually have contestants from all over that travel to Missoula for the event. So if you're in the vicinity, come say hi! Here is the list of dates.
We're working together to offer some classes also, so I'll let you know the dates of those once they are finalized too.
I'm off, hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
