Ornaments and Updates
So the new name has begun, I have not changed all the URL's yet but it is coming. I still need to change my business forms and taxes, so I probably won't change the URLs until then.
Honestly I hate the new color. I have finally decided it needs fixing, but when I will get around to it is another question.
I have several balls to post, the two on the bottom being complete, the two on the top picture I was playing with color and patterns. Sometimes the best way to learn is to just do a new pattern. I want to be ambitious and try a spiral pattern, but I have a ton of inventory to catch up with first.
I am going to the Motchisuki celebration they are holding here in Dallas. I am pretty excited, I went once before, but it was several years ago and my children were still babies. This should be an interesting experience for them. I wish I could dress in kimono, but I honestly have to lose some weight first. I have 2 kimono now, but I am so big around the middle I don't quite fit. Not like obese, just bigger than a japanese woman, lol.
As part of my medical treatment I have to exercise regularly. As if chasing a sensory processing disorder autistic child around wasn't enough. So I am sill keeping custom orders down, until I can lose some weight and hopefully get my health back in order.
I am going to try and wrap up some of the kanzashi I have outstanding on my desk collecting dust. Like wisteria. I also have a box of pieces that need fixing, and I might work on those too. But I need a back up plan becasue I am going to run out of foam balls for ornaments soon. And I am down to my last box of pins.
That did not stop me from going to the fabric store today and stocking up on a new brocade, and some gold highlight fabric. Coupons! Woohoo!! So after I finish the pink ball I am working, I will start the new green brocade I just picked up and already cut tonight. Then I will spend some wrapping and doing a photoshoot for all 6 I will have at that point.
