In the studio this week...


 I have been trying to sneak out to the studio in bits and pieces to try to finish up some of the projects I have been working on.  I was pleased to finish the class sample for Kim's event in March and now I just needed to finish this lady for the upcoming workshop in New Jersey!   I am so excited about this 2 day workshop which will consist of a little bit of everything and will take place in the Lemoncholy Studio.  Kecia Deveney was so sweet to invite me to her studio to teach 14 wonderful women.  We thought it would be fun to give the workshop a theme and because Phantom of the Opera is near and dear...we went with that.   It's funny though...as much as I love Phantom, when it came time to choose fabrics for the costuming of our Phantom piece I really struggled.  



I didn't know whether to do "dark and dangerous" or "sweet and innocent".  I took to the internet and YouTube.  There are some wonderful clips from the movie there.  My favorite is the Masquerade number.  I could watch it over and over.  I thought I might make her costuming "Masqueradish" but then thought not as it is really just a small piece of the puzzle.  So I studied and watched and dug deep into my memory of the times I have been fortunate to see the show on stage....

I decided to go with the sweet and beautiful side of the movie.  The innocence of Christine and the beauty of her costuming, always gorgeous pale colors with lush trims, ribbons and flowers.



And she had to have a cape!


Now I am just going to count down the days until January...

When you have a moment...

The new Prims publication is on the news stands.  It is another beautiful magazine put together by Jenn Jackson and the staff at Stampington.  There are art work and articles by Debbee ThibaultNancy Malay, Jennifer Murphy and more!!  Most importantly, there is a wonderful story about our sweet Southern friend, Penny McAllister, who lost her battle to Leukemia.  Penny was such a spunky, funny, lovely soul.  We miss her terribly.  Thank you Lori, for organizing the wonderful Penny Feather Tree Auction and for keeping Penny's memory alive.  I am so honored to have been a part of it.
