Whew, Round and Round and Round we go

Is that the tire that I flattened on the way to Kansas City or my head as I catch up on fashion webinars given by Jane Hamill and Alyson Stanfield or is it the combine down the street going around in circles at a farm owned by friends of ours as they gather in the fruits of their harvest for the season?

Well, I wish it was the flattened almost new tire, but alas it no longer goes round and round. Yes it is my brain as I am trying to keep up with all the great ideas shared by other designers all over the world in my online classes and my little brain trying to comprehend all that I'm learning in my continuing education classes to maintain my real estate brokers license, a necessary piece since I  continue to do referrals to help friends and family out.

It's been a busy busy few months.  In August I collaborated with Wayne 'Fella' Vaughn with his collection for Omaha Fashion Week. His designs were absolutely fabulous and I was honored he asked me to join him for this event.  Was also asked to show some of my hats in DSM Fashion Week in DesMoines, IA and that was a real treat as well.

It seems of late that the demand for my hats and headpieces have been for weddings and engagement parties.  Have had a blast designing everything from a burgandy velvet vintage inspired hat to one using Paris lace for the wedding of our son in Atlanta. Two or three more are in various stages of completion. Most of these clients have found me on the internet.

Thanks to our daughter Dayna, I now have enough old bobbins to wrap with my newly acquired swiss straw braid, so that they can be neatly arranged on a shelf in the gallery. We are also preparing for our open house and Platte River Christmas coming up soon.  We hope you can all come out to see us. Would love to hear what's going on in your world. Til next time.
