if you look closely, you can see my new label sewn inside this apron...heehee!
feels so professional...

the cecelia- for sale on etsy
the heather...a custom order for an "urban, retro girl"
has layers of swirl fabric, mod fabric, and "think green" fabric :)

this apron is for a tiny 5 year old as a vday present! adorable!
my friend that bought it actually works at Attitudes & Attire...she is part of the reason the whole suit drive/apron journey even began! her enthusiasm for her work and her love for the clients that come to A & A make her quite an exceptional young lady! Thanks Bec!
oh yeah! working the label :)

hey blogging buddies!
w-o-w. i have not held up my end of the blogging deal, i apologize. life gets busy. ;)
and i'm actually about to walk out the door to hear my friends' band Ruby Queen play at the mokah lounge here in Dallas...that was a really long sentence.
but real fast, i wanted to tell you that i'm jonesin' for some sewing time. and santa brought me a sewing table so i don't have to work on my coffee table anymore. yes, i'm serious, it was not a very ergonomic work environment, lol. anyways, i'll be working on some cutesy valentine's aprons and taking custom orders...
love you guys! hope all is well with your new year!

can you believe the way christmas has snuck up on us this year?! i sure can't.
while working on some orders today, i thought i'd go ahead and make two halfers out of some christmas fabric i bought...and i really like them. here is one below...
the henrietta. kind of sounds like poinsettia... :)

long time no blog :) but since my dog woke me up this morning an hour before my alarm was going to go off, i thought, "now would be the perfect time to blog!?!" ha...
the picture above is from the bear creek united methodist church craft show. my sweet friend lizzy flew into houston to join in the fun. and it really was so much fun! we talked to so many women about aprons, attitudes & attire, and how they can join in the mission. after the bazaar, i wrote attitudes & attire their check for 20% of proceeds and it was an AMAZING feeling to sign that check. makes me want to sell these remaining aprons so that i can write them another check!! i just adore writing checks, it's my forte. ha!
so, spread the word, especially with christmas gift ideas on everyone's minds...i have 12 left on etsy and they really need to go before i do any more creating! i do have a ton of fabrics, so if you want something special, shoot me an email: email@example.com . please help me in raising more money for this great organization that empowers and equips women. :)
wow, my intention wasn't to make this a sales ad but that's just where my brain goes i guess. hehe. i will post a couple apron pics later that i made for two girlfriends from high school! super cute aprons... it's so great being back in touch with old friends...love it.

hey blogger friends,
soooo....i have made a ton of aprons and i seriously want to share them with you all. but times have been crazy lately. i just finished the 27th apron to take to the bazaar and yesterday and today i completed two orders for full aprons. i actually had made 30 for the bazaar but a sweet friend bought three of them :)
in between sewing, singing at church, attending fc dallas games, reading for book club, going to choir practice, and working full time, (ha!) i just have not had a second to take pics of each apron and post a blog on each one. :( i'm sorry to let you down like that.
but the exciting part of this blog is to tell you that yesterday jenny from jenny leigh photography did a second photo shoot with my aprons. we got a pic of each apron in front of that sweet blue door (like in the pic above). which means as soon as i get those pics back from her, i will put them on my website and then, ohmygoodness, i will send out my new website's link!!! i am pumped about this, and i made it by myself too. it's definitely been a work in progress but it's almost ready to be seen by the public. after the church bazaar this upcoming weekend, i'll post the aprons that didn't sell on my etsy site, get the pics on my new website, and then BAM! the site will be ready and you're going to get a mass email with the announcement. ha. so there's the plan...now let's just see if it goes how i want. :)
