my beloved apron


usually when I decide to add something it is totally random. I was at joanns one day and I saw spring ticking fabric I thought it would be so cute for an apron. then I googled "50's apron" online and found the pattern. a few weeks later I had the apron and picture sitting in front of me. they were even cuter than I imagined. especially seeing it on my niece for the first time. then I got a call a few weeks after I added it that a major catalog wanted to pick it up for their holiday season. she said, we send out a million catalogs. the apron would be the feature for their holiday catalog. they were doing pink for their season color and all things kitchen. I was very excited but kind of stressed at the same time because these aprons are completely handmade. lots of time and love goes into each one. so I hired someone to make them for me and let her know that I needed to have 30 by october 1st. until today. I received an email that said to have 150 ready for season and the potential for more depending on the sales after the first few weeks the holiday catalog goes out. OH. MY. GOSH. so this evening I will be off to joanns to special order this fabric.


just hear those sleigh bells jingling....

That is just adorable! How exciting it will be debuted in a magazine for millions! Sounds like a lot of work ahead, but better than being bored, right?!
