1- My cat Gunny, isn't he majestic and cute? He has started to hang out in my room a lot more these days which is rather nice.
2- Hanging out at the Broadmoor down in Colorado Springs, such a beautiful hotel.
3- Amazing jalapeno poppers! I want some right now, they were so tasty! nom
4- Lavender cocktails with Gina, lavender cocktails are my new favorite thing!
5- Chi tea and getting a lot done in the sewing room amount to a great afternoon.
6- A plaid dress I started but have been unable to finish. Matching plaids is not my idea of a fun time.
7- Tiny Cleo paws! (cat lady much?)
8- Helping my brother shoot a video of ink spreading through water, it turned out cool so check it out here
9- Spent a lovely day at the zoo with my dad.
10- Punchbowl Social for Gina's birthday dinner!
11- Working on a black moire 20's dress for an upcoming event at the museum! It is nearly done now and I can't wait to wear it!
12- My Halloween decorations, I ended up going pretty all out so that we would be the cool house on our street. I even brought out the fog machine for extra fun!

I haven't been as productive as I would like as far as sewing goes these past few weeks. I am almost done with the black dress I mentioned but before starting that I had a mini sewing hiatus. Sometimes I just don't feel like it! But the more I sew, the more I get to add new things to my closet, so I need to get to work!

I am going to try and nanowrimo a bit this November (National Novel Writing Month). I would love to finish the first draft of my novel (that i have been working on for what, four years now?) this month. I would have to write maybe 15-20 thousand words this month to do so, which is nowhere near the official nanowrimo goal of writing a 50,000 word novella in a month. I just need to set aside and dedicate the time to do it! Hopefully I can keep up with my sewing projects too!

I also wanted to let you guys know that as of November 1st the second series of Miss Fishers Murder Mysteries is now available to stream on Netflix! I have talked about this series before, but seriously if you haven't watched it yet now is the perfect time! I just love the 20's set decorating and costumes! Plus Miss Fisher is a bamf!

That's all for today, I have another new 20's dress to show you all tomorrow!


  1. Ooohhhh, how awesomely exciting that you're going to try your hand at NNWM, dear gal. That is such an impressive thing to undertake and I wish you luck, energy and inspiration every step (word) of the way.

    ♥ Jessica

    1. Thanks Jessica, I find it really hard to write every day consistently so I will need that luck!
