Let's talk about the weather

The weather is always a good thing to talk about when you have nothing else to talk about...that is not the case for me. I am so busy I think my head is spinning and I need to take a breather and get it all down on paper. As for the weather here....it really stinks. We got hit with our only blizzard this season last Thursday with a whopping 16" and then of course 68 degree weather on Sunday to melt it a bit and then a surprise of more snow today, thrilling to say the least.

I have so many ideas right now that I think I need to focus and decide what pieces I think will be best for Summer. I am about half done and I do have a couple women's items as well. Fabric combinations are endless and I just love these bright fabrics, but at some point I have to stop myself and move ahead.


Speaking of moving ahead, with the lead time I would need to have to have a "shoppable" store of mostly ready to ship items, I would be delayed at least one more month. I will be resorting back to my current ways of doing business. Taking orders and completing them in the order they were placed. There is one thing I am changing and that is "customized requests" such as changes made to the inseam, waist or chest. If you can imagine having over 150 orders and trying to remember what person wanted what inseam or waist etc...it leaves a lot of room for mistakes. So I will still offer my standard sizing in single sizes from 12 mos - 8 and I will have all of the measurements laid out for easy ordering.

I only have a couple more orders from Spring left and then I am a "free" women lol and looking forward to this new venture that my Summer line brings. Thanks for all the support ladies!
