A Catch-Up, Some News, and Randomness


Just an end of the week catch-up on what I have going on these days…..

» It’s still snowing. And I’m still complaining about it. Still dreaming of spring, too. 

» I finally got my hair cut. Nothing drastic. I just haven’t gotten it done since october, and it needed it. Badly. 

» I continue to update and add new items to my collection at Crompton Collective every few weeks. So If you live in the Worcester/Boston area, you should go check it out! I’m also updating  the Etsy shop as items sell/ I make new ones. 

» Speaking of Etsy, I’ve become kind of treasury crazy lately. If you don’t know - a treasury is a curated collection of really cool items on Etsy. For me, it’s like creating mood boards. And I love it. You can see my treasuries here

» Lastly, I’m super excited to announce that I am now a part of the Megan Nielsen Design Diary team! I’ll be over there a few times a week, sharing tips, tricks, techniques, and tutorials. As well as some other pretty cool things. You can see my first post, tips on selecting the best seam finish, here

This is really exciting for me, because it helps me get back to my love of sewing and creating clothing. As you may know, I’ve been sewing since I was little, and sewing and designing is what I committed 4 years of my life to doing in college. But lately, it has gotten away from me. I kind of lost the desire, for reasons unknown to even me. Maybe it was the lack of motivation. I don’t know. But I do know that when Megan contacted me, asking if I would like to help her out, I was beyond happy. Happy to help her. Happy to have the motivation again, to get behind my  sewing machine. Happy to brush up on all those skills I learned in school. Happy to be back at it again.
