What I've been... 


I'm a big believer in reading the book first but didn't have time before seeing the Scorsese movie, so I opted for the audiobook and it is worth a listen. With any retelling things get changed and for me, David's documentation of these events features Mollie and her family at the forefront and I appreciated that. Plus it dives deeper into how and why this was happening.

I picked up 'The Queen's Man' randomly at a secondhand bookshop and it sent me down a path of reading the entire series. I love books that are both historical and fictional, and this author has perfected that genre. Now that I have burned through this series at my local library, I need to head back and see what other books this author has written.

I am obsessed with this show. I love period pieces; the history, the drama, the clothing, it's beautiful. This season has been dramatic, tear-jerking, and hilarious, each episode leaves me a little mad I am watching this episodically and haven't waited to watch the whole season!

Over the last month, I have been working on my 'Evergreen' Bomber Jacket, plus a couple extra jackets and ponchos for the One of a Kind Show. I couldn't head off to OOAK without documenting these gorgeous upcycled beauties. It will be a minute before we drop the editorial, but 'There Were Trees' was a passion project. Pulled together to document the destruction of a local forest. Kaja and I can't wait to show you the magic we created.

Many clients sympathize with us makers who do OOAK. It's long hours, a lot of money, a long show, and yes it is all these things, but I'm lucky to always have Heather close to me! She is the designer and owner of Dotty Clothing, plus she is kind, hilarious, and the best booth neighbour ever, I couldn't get through this show without having her there to pass the slow times with.
