Moments With Anime And Music

I like to use You Tube as a radio when I'm working on the computer, or while i'm working out. Today, I was feeling the music from Queen of the Damned. One of my favorite songs is Forsaken. Add that to a cool anime` (yes i'm an anime' nerd), and you're set!


Music For The Terminally Lonely

Today I was feeling a bit lonely. I miss friends and family, the hustle and bustle of daily life. I was on You Tube, and found one of my favorite songs from the past from this anime' called Chobits.



Japanese Inspiration: Valentino Glamour

Beautiful gowns from Valentino. They make me swoon, and are reminiscent of the Art Deco period. The architectural details, intricate beading, ethereal surreal shapes and romantic colors...I love it!






Inspired By Culture: A Pinterest Mood Board

As a designer, I'm inspired by what i see around me. Sometimes, we have to dig deep and look outside of what we can see. These lovely women I discovered through people on Pinterest and Flickr. I might use this later for a clothing line.

Radioactive Retro Ornaments

Inspired by retro radioactive signs from the 1940s and 1950s, I came up with these cool ornaments. They are made from wool felt, and comes in a variety of colors.







They are available in my shop here

Japanese Inspiration: Geometrics

Geometry, I hated that subject in school. When my teachers used to tell me that i would need this later in life, I laughed and was like: I'm going to work in the fashion industry! 


My Grams kindly reminded me that she used it all the time with quilting. Also, that I might need it for making patterns and such.


This post is a celebration to geometrical shapes, which seems to be a popular choice.

Re-Branding

After much consideration and thought, I am going to re-brand myself. Not that i will not sell the same type or style of items. it's just that sometimes to be successful, you must be ready for change. I am ready for that change. 


Next year, in January, my goal is to have my new brand launched. This is going to take much time and planning, research and sweat,lol. I have many ideas, I just need to see which one will work for me.
