Ema 'Emmy' Hesire has arrived!

Since I'm a product of the 80's (okay, fine... late 70's) I've flashed back to my favorite era and named my newest etsy prop after the character Kim Cattrall played in the 1987 movie, Mannequin! Ema Hesire. Or Emmy. I'm slowly trying to redo some of the photos in my shop. Not sure I'm totally loving the look yet, but I'll keep playing with it. Having the clothes 'filled out' for the photos gives them more personality, I think. Maybe the etsy fairy shall pay a visit tonight and grant me ONE sale? Kidding!

Under Construction

I've decided to revamp my Etsy site. This will take a bit of time, but I hope to accomplish it soon. I'll be taking all new photos and creating a more professional, coheisive look. Hopefully! I will also be attempting to create a new banner. We'll see... maybe I'll end up going back to the way it currently is? Stay tuned as it will be a work in progress. I guess that means sewing will be put on hold for a bit? We shall see...

What to blog? What to blog?

Such a boring blog, such little information. Okay, so I'm trying to come up with a new idea. It's a dress/tunic combo which can be worn in summer, fall, winter and spring... get a couple years use...and is made from upcycled t-shirts. Sounds like a big conglomeration of ideas, huh? Well, I'm not promising miracles, but we'll see how it turns out??

As with most things involving kids, the process of coming up with these creations takes twice as long. First of all, I'm just slow at this. Secondly my mini mannequin or dress form, sleeps all the time. Well, not really... just when I'm able to sew. So, I need to wait until the following day to try it on her. That's a chore in itself! You would think that her toys are going to fall off the planet in the amout of time it takes me to slip something over her head! Lord... taking 30 seconds from her play time is a catastrophe! And she will let you know it!

So, we will see how goofy this looks on her. It could be scrapped quite quickly or actually make it to my etsy site? Stay tuned...

Thank You Nikon!

It's been shipped! Finally (well, it's only been in the shop about a week, but still...) my camera is on it's way back to me. Let's see if I can set a record for the number of times a single package is tracked?! It's estimated delivery is Thursday 9/10. That means I have 4 more days to guard my dad's camera with my life! I'm already picturing myself sending in a second camera for repair! No!
