A little bit of this. A little bit of that...

Boy, it's been a looong time since I last blogged. I apologize! But see... I've been a little busy. Guess who showed up last week? The Sophie & Sydney patterns that is! Yep, I won't repeat the picture here on the blog, but just know that our house once again looked like this and this (maybe a tad messier, LOL!)


We spent days taking patterns out of big boxes and putting them into smaller boxes... or in some cases, bigger boxes, depending on the size of the order. And the rest of my week looked a little like this...


and like this...


and like this...


Sooooo, if you're looking to purchase the Sydney & Sophie patterns, they will be up on my consumer site soon, but for now, please check out our lovely retailers at the bottom of this page (Retailers: if your store link is not on here yet, please shoot me an email and I'll add it a.s.a.p.). Lots have already received their shipments and have them up on their site for purchase.

[WARNING: This post is about to get really random.]

Remember when I broke up with FaceBook a while back? Well, we've decided to be just friends. I did make a promise to spend more time getting to know FB better so I took the plunge and started a FaceBook Fan Page for MODKID. Hey, that's making an effort, right? Please show your support and join us! :)


Let's see, what else is going on? Have you guys checked out Kristen's Etsy store lately? That crazy lady's been at it again! And this time she's created a whole new collection of sweet twirly skirts all made out of Mezzanine. Aren't these fun?

Oh, my day was brightened last Friday with this lovely flower arrangement. Isn't it sweet? Nope, it's not from Jon. ;) It was from this sweet lady.


Thank you, friend! It's still holding up well and beautifying my new studio. What? New studio, you say? Yep, Jon and I decided to do a little heavy lifting and rearranging this past weekend. The MODKID studio now takes over almost our entire basement and I am just LOVING all the new furniture & details (and the spacious quarters!). If you follow me on Twitter, I did upload a few crappy iPhone photos of the computer station, new cutting table, fabric shelves, etc. but for the rest of you, here is a sneak.


I will be sewing up some curtains today and hanging up some artwork. We also need to attach some spacers to the bottom of the tabletop on the new cutting table. I want a little area underneath the tabletop where I can store pattern pieces and other large, flat papers. Ooooh, so many ideas swimming in this crazy head of mine.

Give me a few days and I promise to give you a full reveal of the new studio space... it'll be like a virtual tour. I'll show you every nook & cranny and give you sources and background info on each piece.

Until then...

P.S. This just in... in keeping with the "random" theme and all: check out my interview at Fat Quarter Shop's THE JOLLY JABBER!
