The Ultimate Vintage Notion Find! UPDATED!


Hello lovely people. 
Yesterday Brian and I made our pilgrimage to the Observatory. He met tons of doggies and had a great time. Afterwards I gussied up in one of my dresses and went to Playclothes to pick up some repairs.

Upcoming projects.


Hello lovely people.

I spent yesterday cleaning and rearranging my work areas as I prepare for a week of work.

Vintageville will be back next Tuesday!

Yes, it's true. The outlines for a good 4 or five episodes have been sitting on my drawing table ever since I took that brake weeks ago. I just fell into a slump. A depression state, and had no motivation. Slowly I'm crawling myself out of it, and one thing I missed was working on Vintageville.

More awesome Playclothes repairs!


Hello everyone!
It has been a crazy few weeks for me. I have a cough (congested throat that may be a sinus infection) that I've had flair up for over a week. I hope it will go away in a bit.
