   So my surprise (drum roll please) is Masa Yume's first graphic tees. A friend of mine is an amazing artist, and on the way home from work one night I called her all frantic like. "Rachel! I have an awesome idea for a shirt!" blah blah blah scream scream scream flale flale flale "Can you draw it for me?!" Rachel was just as excited as I was (am) and she was all for it. So THANK YOU RACHEL!!! aka Roo hehehe. I hope you all like the shirts. I will be posting them to the etsy site shortly and they will be available there. 

   So that brings me to the other part of my post. Masa Yume's first blog contest! Woot! The winner will win the pictured "taking leaps tee" and a couple other things I'm going to throw into it :D. All you have to do is:

1. Follow my blog and/or facebook fan page.

3. Comment below so I can check out your wonderful blog or twitter, your twitter or email address,

Fabric for my coat!!!

Tuesday, September 21, 2010

Hello! I have been trying to blog all weekend with a new look attached, but it was just not working, along with the browser not letting me bring up blogspot. SO finally I am able to do both. Upload a new look and a quick word. It was so much hotter than I would have liked it to be today, it was crazy hot. It was pretty outside however. I got up early to meet with the lady who photographed my wedding. Love her! She took over 600 pictures and everyone of them amazing, I'm so happy with them. Next I plan to make a cool album with them, but she has expressed in interest in doing it for me, so that might be what happens :). She was super cool and easy to work with, and all around I'm happy with the results. So in doing amazing, I've asked her to take pictures of the surprise I have coming when it's finished. I'm so excited! So here's my look from today.

At church this weekend I was delighted to find out that a friend of mine starting a beauty store in China. It's like Clinque (or any makeup line of your choosing) but in a stand alone store. I'm soooo proud of her. She's incredibly bright and nice, I'm happy for her. Today went by pretty fast for a Monday...Tuesday...I mean. I don't know why I thought it was Monday hahaha! How's everyone else's week look! Lots of stuff to do? Alright, I've procrastinated long enough, I should get back to work. Don't forget to follow on my facebook and twitter. I will be doing a contest soon, and I don't want you to miss it.

work and play

Today is gorgeous outside. This will always be my favorite time of the year. Fall is just awesome on all fronts. So today is more of a work day with lounge wear. I do have some a few errands to run and I will get on that when I'm done watching Popeye the Sailor Man lol. While out shopping with my mom and grandmother the other day we came across a bin of $5 movies at walmart. In there I found lots of old movies that I probably won't find anywhere else and some old time cartoons that I will always have a special place for. So I will be inside most of the day working with Masa Yume, trying to bring out that surprise that will most likely happen early next month, and doing a wix website til I can link my domain to it. I have painted my nails, worked on the fall 2011 line, and now to make some tea on the quick break I'm taking away from the computer.

What does everyone have in store for this week? I hope you get a lot of the things you want to do, done. Alrighty back to work. :D

a touch of color

It's fall and it is great! The smell of the crisp air, the feel of the breeze, and the tea in my belly :D! I love this time of year! You are going to start seeing lots of coats that are going to keep the wind whipping at your arms and legs to a minimum and hopefully with a bit of personality. I did a fall outfit with a coat below, the coat is brown, but to add some personality I added color to help the outfit to be more fun. I'm all a twitter, can't wait to go to the fabric store and pick out some cool fabric and lining for my own fall jacket! I will post the swatch pictures as soon as I figure out what I'm doing. I was thinking of doing a two pattern jacket, with a princess cut and asymmetrical lines....hmmmm....there's a thought. Oh well, on to the look!

Well I'm off back to work on the surprise that Masa Yume is bringing...them some anime for break...then more work :D. Later! :D

How Fortunate

Rainy Rainy Rainy Day!

So if you are were in the mid- Michigan area today you would have been drenched in loads and loads of rain. I had to work at my new job today and every time it would start to pour it sounded like the roof was going to cave in. All I could think of was going outside and wearing a great pair of boots and accessories. I love rain so I wasn't upset about it either. I would more so love to have picked up and gone to a coffee shop and enjoyed yummy warm tea while catching up on the crazy monster size of entries I've missed. I refuse to delete the blogs that I follow since I haven't been able to get on in a while. SO I will catch up on them since I love them so. A few of the people who follow this one I follow theirs. :D . In inspiration of the rain and fall (the best part of the year) I did an outfit. YES! They are popular demand...mainly me ;).

I even put in an umbrella. When I was looking threw all of the umbrellas this site offered I saw inspirations for outfits to come and pieces for upcoming lines :D. As I have grown so has my line and I'm very proud of that. The lines before I wouldn't change at all even if they are outdated (such is fashion) since they have helped me to continue to hone my fashion into what it is becoming (which is simply put...amazing!). I hope you continue to stay with me as a show you what I'm working with :D. (drift back to the song lol). Anyways I hope everyone is enjoying their week! Yeah for hump day! I have a wedding rehearsal and wedding to be in this weekend for one of my good friends. SO happy for her! Have a great rest of the week.
