For the past few months, I have been in a kind of haze of grief and sadness, having lost someone I loved deeply for many years, knowing I had to give up that feeling of them being my home. Never in my life have I felt so lost. The fact that I have gotten quite sick again the last couple of weeks has only made my soul and heart darken, but after this visit I hope to pick myself up as I really can't afford for the pneumonia to return.
I have been trying, my dear readers, to think of what to write or to be able to show you new creations but in my state, I must say what I have been working on has been terribly slow, or have simply not had the heart to do anything at all. I've buried myself in books again, which has been lovely to get back to after so many years of not being able or having time to do so. Currently, I am re-reading, Jasper Fforde's, The Fourth Bear, a nursery crime novel series, that follow the investigations of Detective Jack Spratt. (Yes, all the characters are from fairy tales or nursery rhymes!)

Moo.com as this is also the place that I had my illustrated business cards printed, and I loved the texture, smoothness, and detail of their card stock and printing abilities. (Plus, I had a $15 dollar "moo-lah credit" so the whole pack of 50 only costed $5.79! *o*) And.... the reveal.....
^-^ I am really thrilled with the way they turned out!! It makes me feel like a super legit indie brand, ha ha, and I appreciate that they retain such detail after being scaled and printed as well. I am picturing a pearly 1/8 of an inch white cording and tiny gold safety pins for attaching the hang tags. So the next person that buys a Pop Princess garment gets the first new hang tag! My next step will be embroidered/woven clothing tags... having the actual custom logo done would be quite expensive so I am currently researching options that would simple but still professional.
I hope you enjoy these, and I promise as soon as my health is back there are beautiful garments to be made and many new fabrics to be shared! <3 Sometimes I wish I had an assistant! ; o ; xoxo
