Well, everyone, I am off on vacation in a couple of hours. Stayed up late last night packing and finishing up some last minute work and now I am ready to relax and have fun. We will spend the first 3 days hanging out at my parents' house in Cocoa... probably going to the beach, eating lots of Latin food and catching up with family. Then Jon & I will head out on a Bahamas cruise until Monday! I can't wait!! I will post pictures here when I get back. I am taking my Digital SLR with me on the cruise and leaving Sophie in charge of the point & shoot digital. She is a budding artist & photographer, so we'll see what kind of shots she gets of her time with her cousin & grandparents while Jon & I are away... should be interesting nonetheless! ;)
I didn't get a chance to list any of my Fall 2006 samples as I mentioned in my last post, sorry! I know a few of you were interested and I greatly appreciate it. Thank you to those who emailed me directly to inquire about specific pieces. I will settle up with all of you when I get back. :) Maybe I won't have that much to list after all! hee hee
On July 10th (the day we return), I will be listing my LAST Summer design before I unveil my Fall 2007 line. But this will be a special design... completely original and One Of A Kind (OOAK). I am honored to have been invited to participate in Boutique Encore's launch that starts July 10th. It is a Japanese inspired launch and one rule was that we had to use authentic Japanese fabrics for at least part of the design. Well, I ordered some Chirimen fabrics and waited ... and waited... and waited... then gave up hope... then they showed up and they were exquisite! :) I immediately knew what I was going to make with them! This design will NOT be recreated because I only received enough of this fabric to make this one special dress and the remnants were used to make some super cute Japanese stuffies that are also included in the auction... I will even include the hair accessories, ehem, chopsticks! LOL! The set is made in Sydney's size, so those of you who have purchased my sample sets know what her size is... about a 2T/3T. Straps can be adjusted (made longer or shorter at end of auction), to fit a bigger or smaller child. I will notify you all when it is up! :)
OK, so this is it! I will be back on the 10th full of pictures and stories and ready to list again, so HAPPY 4th everyone! Take care, have a great week and I'll talk to you soon!!!
