My feetsies got a tickle.
A little bitty big itch.
For some tunes & high heels.
Some shimmy shakin'.
And, seeing my sister rockin' beside me would so soothe my scratch.

Point me to the dance floor...

{dramatic interlude}

1.  I am in love with this image.
2.  I am uncertain of my next address, but I know that one of my home's walls will replicate this look.
3.  Falling plates.
4.  I have always been drawn to plates on a wall.
5.  Four of my walls in my current home are adorned with plates.
6.  #3 could quite possibly be a metaphor for my life on so many levels at times.
7.  I love that none of the plates coordinate or match, but better yet, have their own distinct personality.
8.  I find strength in their offset placement narrow-broad-narrow.
9.  I feel God taking my very own narrow and broadening it at this very point in my life.
10.  I hope I can instill #7 into my boys when it comes to living life.
11.  I am thankful for His {dramatic interlude}.

Under Da Sea

 "I'm free!"
                              Mollye Addison Casey

And, when your 3 and in love with Ariel, Aunt Meg gladly obliges.

Wouldn't you if your niece pointed to her feet, and proclaimed, "Aunt Meg, look at my fins!"?

I fell in love with the glitter ribbon.
And that became my inspiration for ocean water in that cotton top's locks!

 Thus, a handmade seascape applique was a must on my to-do list for this little lady...
 I drew it all by hand with the boys help one night,
 The monogram just so in that yummy tomato red.
 And, I drenched my creative self in tiny accents and details making Ariel as beautiful as I could.  The red ruffle ribbon hand sewn this-way-n-that really gave the vibe of voluptuous flowing locks underwater.

Did I just use the adjective voluptuous for a Disney character?
Um, yeah I did.

And, I opted for a blue-green swirl of threads for her eye color.
Perhaps, this gal is in Ariel's lineage, no?
I do love my eyelash curler; perhaps Ariel does too.
 And check out Sebastian!  Casey was pretty adamant that he have the black wrinkled lines under his eyes.   Nice detail investment by my little guy if you ask me.
 Flounder was made using my mom's vintage yellow variegated knit.  I always try to put a little of Mollye's namesake in any hand crafting I make for her.
Ahhh, my personal favorite...THE TAIL!  I fused a gross green netting to an electric blue shiny material (that quite possibly could've been the same fabric used in my sophomore year prom dress made by mom) to create the scales for Ariel's fin.

Tricky, but so very mermaid.
And, alas, Eli spotted this pre-gathered fabric in Mollye's favorite color one day while supply gathering for k.Mac, so we had to whip up this couture no-brainer!
The answer is yes.
Yes, Mollye must have matching bows with every outfit made by Aunt Meg.
I love that the seashells are actually ones the boys collected while visiting Aunt Tee-Tee and Tone-Tone this May.  
And, after all that...Mollye was Ariel the mermaid for her party too!
You'll have to go check the party duds out here.

She's "free!"
I can remember this day 3 years ago like it was yesterday.

Happy Birthday, Mollye the Mermaid!
You make my heart so very happy!

Aunt Meg :)

Choices! Choices!

It is high time to get back into the swing of things in k.Mac's cyber world.

Let's celebrate with fabric!  Ahhh, fabric.  I love you so.

Macbook, I love you too.  

I have a client in beginning the design process with me.  She is having a little girl; her second to be exact.

After discussing with her the little one's name selection, my client's hobbies & interests, as well as colors she is drawn to most, I gathered fabric collections that seem to most suit her.

And, here they are:

I rely strongly on colors a client is drawn to as well as their hobbies & interests. And I like to request the little tee-tiny one-on-the-inside's name as I love to consider what personality this newborn may be.   

It is important to me that the custom design I create be a perfect fit for the mama and the baby.

And now, I ask you to help my client out!

Of the fabric collections above, which one would you choose?

Can you tell I'm a bit over zealous with with graphic computer capabilities?

I mean really it's been 8 WEEKS a long time without a computer...
