Well, my 2 year blogiversary came and went and I was so busy that I missed it. I can honestly not believe that it's been 2 years! Here's link to my very, very first blog entry. Crazy, eh?
Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined that this is where I would be! Thank you so much for coming along on this journey with me and for all of your support and encouragement along the way. I really have made some wonderful new friends in this big old blog land! xoxo
For those of you who may have just recently joined me, here's some quick bullet points:
-Was living in Brooklyn and working at a big Ad Agency as an account person going to a bajillion meetings and practically living on an airplane
-Really wanted to make some changes
-Decided to leave my job (way scary) and simplify my life
-Wanted to figure out a way to build a business where I could let my creativity grow
and get off the corporate hamster wheel
-Moved back to Austin (after a cross country drive with the dog and the cat)
-Started designing fabric and focusing on surface design
-Started my Etsy Store
-Tufted Tweets and Urban Circus were licensed by Robert Kaufman
-And now I'm focused on more fabric design and on getting my patterns licensed by manufacturers in other industries
I'm just so happy to be where I am now and can hardly imagine what the next 2 years might bring! I don't think I succeed in simplifying my life, but still a hugely happy camper! :) Must continue to work on that simplification though!
So, in honor of my 2 year blogiversary, let's do another giveaway! Come back on Monday and I'll post all the details.
In the meantime, I've started working on some pillows for my couch. They're still work in progress but I'm really happy with the way they're turning out. (Not the greatest photo but you get the idea...)
After my first try at hexies (and I do love my little Zoe footstool!) and the discovery that I don't care for the hand piecing, I decided this time to try sewing them directly to a backing. Liked this MUCH better. Upon close inspection, you can see some small gaps between a few of the hexies but who's looking, right!? I'm thinking chocolate brown piping and simple chocolate brown envelope back...
Have a wonderful weekend everyone. And make sure you come back on Monday for the giveaway!
