A Christmas Wedding

Doing that Craftsy class was a marvelous adventure, but aside from mentioning a quietly placed 20% discount link in the side bar, it is past time for me to move on to another topic.

My son announced recently that he is engaged!

He and his lovely bride-to-be have been dating for a while, so the real kicker to this announcement is that he's given us a whole 6 weeks to prepare! Yikes. Coming off the Craftsy event (which as set me back quite a bit)  I get to squeeze in a couple more things! I am excited about planning for a Christmas themed reception/open house for early December. Take a look at my Pinterest board of ideas:

But you know the real question going through my mind is...WHAT AM I GOING TO WEAR??

You'll not be surprised to know the colors are green, red and gold. I found this green knit that I think I'd like to use. It's been rumpled up in my laundry basket, waiting for a wash, and it's not iridescent, but this photo makes it look as though it were.

I was contemplating a shorter version of Serenata.

What do you think?

You'll eventually see me working on a retrofit of this dress that the brides mother was married in.

It's Almost HERE!


Are you tired of hearing about Craftsy yet? No? This is GREAT because it's a big job getting everything ready to go, and I'm still not done yet. Yesterday several BIG boxes were delivered to me with all the patterns to be mailed to students.

The content is exactly the same, and still comes in a zip style bag, but the packaging has been formatted to fit a smaller envelope. My instructions normally come in booklet form, so if you're a fan of the sheet style sewing guide, you won't be disappointed:
 
I love that the pattern is in blue print.

I've been working on my mailing list email, and the Craftsy list email, and setting up class links set up and getting oriented to the Craftsy class page so that I know how to answer all of your questions and we can have a great interactive experience.


This is the last week of the class giveaway, which end Oct 8, 2013, so get your name in the drawing soon!

To give you more insight into the Craftsy site and purpose, I found this great link to an interview with the Craftsy VP that I can recommend:

I can't tell you HOW soon it is, but the class will be ready SOON, and you'll be one of the first to know.
