Who is your Fashion Inspiration?

Grace Kelly? Audrey Hepburn? Lady Gaga? The Olsens? Kate Moss? SJP?

Well for me… it is my seven year old Daughter. Yes I am totally serious.

She is adorable. ADORABLE!

Why is she my fashion inspiration? Well, this past week I have been noting her clothing choices. She dresses herself everyday – and she has lots of clothes to choose from – and some of the combinations she comes up with would make most adults laugh at the thought of wearing it themselves! She LOVES purples! So…. wearing a purple top, layered over another purple top (a different shade of course) paired with yet ANOTHER purple skirt makes total sense, right?

She also dresses in themes. One day she is Nancy Drew. So that means she needs a sleuthing kit and special dress and “matching” hat. Another – she is Blair from Barbie Charm School. So that means wearing a cardigan, skirt and her little brothers tie – and of course a side ponytail on top of her head!

 What I am getting at is: She wears what she wants, what she loves and she has fun with it! She isn’t worried about showing up at church in a purple dress that is 3 SIZES to big for her with a homemade masquerade mask (she was musketeer). She doesnt worry about what other people will think. She is happy expressing herself.

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could all have that attitude? Well I am going to start changing the way I dress. I am going to start wearing what I want, and what makes me happy. I am going to stop dressing to please other people and start dressing to please me! I love all sorts of styles and trends, I am not going to be a one flavour kinda girl!

Now I am going to go a hug my little inspiration and then get dressed in whatever crazy outfit I choose!!!

Have a great day!

There’s a change in the winds….

Ever since I closed my shop I feel like I have been transitioning from one thing to the next trying to find my place. Everything that I have done I have enjoyed, truly I have. I have sewed, crocheted, created jewellry, painted, upcycled and created all sorts of neat things. BUT this next season in my artistic life really excites me! I have discovered a love for fibre art that I never even knew existed! The possibilities are limitless on what you can do with it! I can even combine it with my other love – which is creating special Kids of the Kings dolls!

One thing that I have started doing that I LOVE LOVE LOVE to do is DYING WOOL! It is soooo much fun to see all of the wonderful combinations of colour that I can create! Last night my mom and I even used onion skins to make a dye and it turned out absolutely gorgeous! I have beets boiling as I write! I will put up some tutorials so you can try it too!
