A scene from my sewing room...

My week is off to a great start. I am working on some new skirts as well as a few things that need to be restocked at the shop. We spent some much needed time outside yesterday, walking the dogs, the kids riding their bikes & cleaning up the yard after a loooong winter! It feels great! It is supposed to be 70 today! Yay!

Happy Monday! :)

The new me....

So I finally decided to just do it... I have been wanting a short cut for awhile. I have to admit, I hated it at first! I think mostly because it turned out NOTHING like the picture and yesterday was sooo WINDY, not good when you are trying out a new do! Lol!
Today after washing my hair and styling it ... I really do like it, it is totally different which I wanted and look I can still wear my new butterflies in my hair!The picture is NOT GOOD at all. I took it myself! But hear ya go! I am off to the dentist and enjoying my few days off (Thanks to filming) I cleaned my entire house! Yay! I have some sewing to do and a special birthday party to plan for a certain soon to 5 year old! I also get to hang out at that certain someones school tomorrow.. to say the least he is very excited!

Enjoy your day! :)

Today is the day....

Well today is the big day ... Johnny Depp is most likely with in a block from my shop :) I won't be there though! We are closed until Saturday. I heard on the news that no one can even get anywhere near there! So I am taking the day to go and get my hair cut and run errands get caught up with some cleaning ect. It has been a crazy week. Here are some pics I took of them filming the other day! The one with the person holding another person hostage (the very first pic~right next to the green screen, be sure to click on each picture to see them better!)is Johnny Depp himself.. I actually got to see him from a far.. but I have to tell you it is hard to tell all the actors apart. They are all dressed in 1930's gear and man does Johnny Depp look just like Dillinger would have. It is really cool!

oh here is a link to a video interview I did with our local paper I am only on there a second but it was cool.. the video is done with a 1930's feel! super cool.. Thanks Northwestern! :)

Have a great day!

Look at this....

It has been busy around here. First of all THANK YOU soo much to everyone who came out for Gallery walk.. it was awesome. The weather was great and downtown was buzzing. A perfect night.

My weekend was filled with Jada's soccer game, getting ready for gallery walk night and this... painting our bathroom! The pic. does not do it any justice but I thought I would share anyway... it is a beautiful shade of blue. My husband put in a new floor too! I am soo happy with it. Honey you amaze me! ;)

I also made the cute cone thing.. it has been on my dresser for years with just lights on it (it is made up of grapevine underneath) and I got this idea from ArtsyMomma and made it into this! I looove it, and it goes great with my duvet cover and my new jewelry stand(hmhm which was intentionally ordered for the shop!)

I had lunch with my good friend Liz (I did forget my leftovers in a store whoops Lol.) and bought a couple of sun dresses getting ready for my maybe new hair cut. I have the appointment for tomorrow afternoon, but I am a little nervous.

Off to get some cleaning done so I can concentrate on sewing! Hope your week is off to a great start! :)

A temporary new look for us.......

If you head downtown this week/ weekend there is a lot going on. Alot of our store fronts have been removed and we are getting a new look.. for the new Johhny Depp movie Public Enemies. It really has been a great thing so far and the people we have been dealing with have been very nice, but we have NO SIGNS right now! Eeks. We are still open @ 317 Market st. ( next to the Barbershop ) Our store is getting a temporary sign of a Machine shop that has closed up. I am assuming our beautiful bright purple walls have something to do with it LOL!

It is supposed to be 50 degrees and sunny today! Yay! Happy Thursday!

oh and mark your calendars Gallery walk is this Saturday from 6-9 pm. We are open! :)
