Holy crap, I just sewed a gown!

*knock, knock, knock* “Heather?”

Yes. I’m alive. Please know I haven’t forgotten about you little bloggy blog of mine! It has been quite some time and in between work-outs, trying to keep up with my shop, working and trying to keep my social life at least a little bit afloat, I’ve spent the remainder of my time asleep. And these hours are very few and far between. So weekends, the free moments I have, oh you better believe I am snug in my bed, blissfully napping.

Unfortunately, I’ve forgotten that days only have 24 hours in them and have had none left over to just sit. I miss sitting. And staring off into oblivion. And it’s my favorite time of year to do so… I need to find time to do that. Outside in a pair of jeans, a warm sweater, a hot cider and my thoughts. Doesn’t that sound glorious?

But I’m glad to get a chance and touch base with my blogging world. I feel like we need to sit down on a cafe terrace, sip lattes and talk about the weather, our families and Bethenny Frankle’s new talk show (God she’s hysterical, I adore her) and Tamra Judge’s wedding (GORGEOUS!).

In the meantime, let me share my biggest feat to date… or at least what feels like it to me.

I sewed a gown.

*pause for reaction*

Yes, I said gown. Remember last year’s Comic Con that I slacked and never put up pictures from like I promised? Yeah, so that happened again. But the shirt wasn’t enough this year, I had to kick it up a notch. So to Cosplay City we went. I did. I cosplayed. I wore a costume. And walked around downtown Baltimore. Like the ridiculously awesome fool I am. That happened. This is real life right here.

Join me on my sewing adventure.

Treasury Tuesday: Color Blocking

‘Ello! Welcome to spring!

We had a great weekend in our family! It was baby shower time for my cousin Courtney, which, turned into a family reunion for us! So wonderful to see everyone! And what a gorgeous day to celebrate!

In conjunction with favorite spring colors from last week, I’m also loving the neon color blocking trend that’s come back in-style in the past few years! I always feel very mod with color blocking, especially with the addition of geometric patterns and shapes!

Check out my favorite finds from Etsy that feature color blocking!

Treasury Tuesday: Color Blocking

First off, I FLOVE the color combinations! I am obsessed with the tote bag by meilingerbags and the orange and pink beaded necklace by JustineJustine!

How do you rock the color blocking?!
