Long Time No Post!

Wow, it has really been awhile. What a crazy few months, I moved, started a new job, and then the Holidays hit. I started working for a company that makes vintage-inspired holiday decorations. It's a small company so I get to help with a lot of different things, like marketing, graphic design, product design, some photography, and anything that comes up!

For my birthday in December, I went to the National Czech and Slovak Museum in Cedar Rapids, IA to see an Alphonse Mucha exhibit. Mucha has been one of my favorite artists for many years. The exhibit had 230 pieces of his work. I love art nouveau and I am part Czech, so the exhibit was a perfect birthday treat. We also walked through Czech Village, ate Czech food, and went antiquing! I scored some pretty Czech glass buttons - Happy Birthday indeed!

A couple of Czechs hangin' out.

I bought a book of his work!

A cute shop with Czech glass!

Next on my sewing table:

After putting my sewing aside for a few months, I'm ready to get back in the game! I have a few sewing projects on my table that I really need to finish up. Sometimes when they get too stagnant, it is hard to start working on them again. I am finishing up a Colette Beignet skirt, a Violet top, and I just started buying fabric for my wedding dress! I will have to show pictures of the fabric when it comes in!
