My mom would have been 76 today. Like all of us she was a mix of things – a tough cookie, fiercely loyal with a wry, morbid sense of humor, but also a worrier, prone to hold a grudge if she felt she or someone she loved was wronged. She was a mother, a nana, a great cook, a talented artist, a nurse, an adventurer. I miss her more than I can say.

I just added a slightly flawed (not visible when worn) Ink Dia, size small to the shop, priced at $75.

Hello Friday

SONY DSC

It’s been a busy couple of weeks! The pre-orders from the shop shipped out last week, and I just finished up a wholesale order of Dia tunics for sister stores¬†Jade & Onyx in California.

My friend and talented artist Michelle (those are her tiny dancing bear sculptures in the pic below) has been helping me in the studio, which has been something of a revelation since delegation is generally not my strong suit. She’s picking up on things quickly and there’s been a whole lot of giggling and gossiping along the way.

This weekend I turn 41, and I have to admit I’m not entirely at peace with it! I still feel like I’m 26 most days, and just getting started.

E&O

My friends Leeann, Cheryl and Katie have decided to close their shop Epona & Oak this month. I’m excited for the new adventures they are embarking on, but I have to say I’m going to miss visiting with them terribly. They’ve been my free therapists and cheerleaders two or three mornings a week for the last couple of years. We’re going to do one last trunk show bash together on Thursday March 13th from 5p.m. to 8 p.m. We’d love to see you there!

Dia

Dia-2Dia-7 Dia-1Dia-6DiaSketch

I’m trying out a new set up for the shop this year. I’ll be rolling out a new style every month or so, taking pre-orders and then producing them rather than sticking to a traditional seasonal calendar. This way I’ll be able to offer you guys more variety,¬† you’ll always know your size will be in stock, and it will make things more efficient on my end – win win right? Now available for preorder the Dia blouse in Chambray and Ink.

Stories

Dropcloth

I watched Stories We Tell by Sarah Polley last night – have you seen it? So good. It’s a documentary about Polley trying to discover if a long standing family joke is true – that her father is not really her father. It’s about how each person tells their version of the story as much as it is about the subject, but also about secrets and love and loss. Sounds heavy I know, but she does it all with a light touch.

I’m finishing up samples for Spring this week, and I’m pretty excited to show them to you guys. If you haven’t already signed up for the newsletter, it is a good time to do it as I’ll be announcing the launch of each style via newsletter and offering an exclusive deal for subscribers.

Oh, and I posted some old photos over on East Twin West Twin if you’re interested.
