(Kristina J. Sedona Skirt, LOFT sweater, Anthro Pony Prix tites, Orla Kiely print bag, MIA cadet booties)

I'm baackk!
I've been fighting some kind of seriously nasty respiratory infection.
Today, I felt almost human again, and that, combined with the fact that Christmas is just around the corner has me in such an exorbitantly good mood.
Oh, and my Christmas shopping is D-O-N-E! so I'm free to enjoy the season.

My head is crazy full of ideas. Visions of ruffles and gossamer ribbon dance in my head...who knew that Christmas shopping in the kid section of Von Maur could be so inspiring? I've been chomping at the bit to get out of my house and into the fabric store.

Thanks for all the love in the previous post.
It was a little overwhelming, 'cuz I hadn't been back on here since I posted Monday and had no idea how many people were lovin' the dress.
My mother called and asked, "WHY ARE YOU GIVING THIS DRESS AWAY?! I want it...I'm going to the fabric store to buy that fabric right now. I need you to make me one." She's so cute.
It just breaks my heart to choose only one of you. Actually, there's no way I could choose, so I'm gonna run your names through random.org and post the winner Saturday night. Be lookin' for your name!

I'm workin' on my next project--an eight piece collection of freshness (apparently the word fresh has been reborn to mean something's really awesome compared to when I was in high-school and it just meant you were naive and stupid)...And I should know, 'cuz I got the update from a freshly creative dude. hehehe...

Isn't this car so great, BTW? It seemed sorta serendipitous that I'd be wearing a bright skirt on the day I run smack-dab into a cream VW convertible bug, It actually belonged to one of the photographers out in the cornfield with me...sigh...I never even got to drive it.
