happy sunday everyone! it’s about 5pm which means there’s still a lot of life left in this day off. i hope you’re up to something wonderful even if that means napping! i spent way too long treating myself to blog surfing and am finally ready to put the laptop lid down for awhile. my fixation today came from a tag i was awarded by a fellow blogger who happens to be indian.
i have a particular love for bollywood and indian films, both old and new and this was the perfect storm to get me going on a pretty path down the roads of india.
thank you to fashion by bollywood for passing this along. in order to accept i have to do all sorts of things like tell stuff about myself, etc but i figure you know me pretty well so i just went for the second part which is to link to inspiring blogs.
i went totally indian and got pulled into the charm and color of one of my favorite countries. i was lucky enough to visit once and hope to get back again soon.
in the meantime there are always the films to transport us!
anyway i just let fate lead from one blog to the next and i hope you’ll enjoy these colorful, passionate ladies as much as i did.
i focus so much on my frenchie side that sometimes it’s refreshing to mix it up a bit.
if you get a chance, stop by and check out their blogs and say hello to the other side of the world.
the one thing that i’ll never forget is the vibrancy of the sweet, gentle people who make the magic of the country. no matter where you go, women are dressed in electric hues and look gorgeous at whatever work they’re doing.
well, as much as i’d like to just keep going, i do have to get back to reality. but inspiration fuels the creative fire and i needed this burst of color and energy. hope you have a great rest of the weekend!
hi guys, glad you stopped by! i’ve been working all day making tiny accomplishments that will hopefully add up to big ones soon. it’s been a struggle to keep the discipline up but i’m determined to change my life.
they say if you keep repeating what you’ve been doing, you’ll get the same things you’ve always gotten. so in an effort to change that i’ve been trying to focus, be more productive and do the things i say i will. you may remember the ‘boudoir noir’ collection i was working on about a year ago. truth is i have so many irons in the fire that some of them just get left to fizzle out and sadly this was one of them. now i’ve got to scramble to revive it and do some serious damage control.
it started out with such promise, the inspiration photo, the beautiful sketches my friend mike drew, even the prototype from the factory! we were so close. and then it was my turn. we needed fabric and i dropped the ball.
when i didn’t send fabric in time, they went ahead and chose something without me. my heartbreak paralyzed me from moving forward and i guess i lost interest in the project. this debacle below was one of four that were done in a ‘contemporary’ (am i being too kind)? pattern. it wasn’t till the other day when i got my mojo back and asked about the pieces that i found out they’d been sent to a consignment store!
eeeeeekkkk!!! thank god my web gal could create a virtual vector version for me!
now i’m scrambling to get back on track. this was more than a mistake, it was a true life lesson. now i just need to take that schooling and run with it. i’m so tired of learning the same things over and over and not having them stick. my new mantra is going to be ‘finish what you start!”
well that’s a wrap for today. good night friends, i hope you reach your goals and dreams!
