My New Studio

I've finally outgrown my home business!!! The gowns I make are so large that thaey were overtaking the small amount of workspace I have in my house. I've found a perfect studio space! It's very close to my home and it's 1200 sq.ft. of freedom!

I put up a huge bar along one entire wall to hang all my wedding gowns and I was finally able to count them all. I have a total of 80 wedding dresses that I hope to turn into costumes by the time Halloween rolls around! 80 wedding dresses! That is crazy and you would not believe how much space they take up. I am guessing that I will be finishing more around 60 dresss, though. Last year I did 25 dresses total, so I don't want to drown myself in tulle and lace.

The space is just perfect. I love it. It has one huge room that is just cement floors and bare drywall. That is where I do all of my painting and hang all of my dresses.

The second room is carpeted and very cozy. I have a huge desk there for my sewing station. My husband bought my kids a couple of Kid Lovesacs and we brought their little TV/DVD set so they can watch movies when I bring them with me.

I plan to spend a lot of time there in the coming months. I've moved everything in and have begun work on my latest creations.

Stay posted for upcoming design descriptions and pics...

My First Blog....

Well, I've finally given in to the world of blogging. It's a necessary step for me to keep my clients and interested parties updated on my work. It's also a chance for me to clear the clutter in my brain and make room for new creative ideas.

I hope you stick around and keep coming back for a glimpse into my work!
