My desk is clear! Well, you know what that means, don’t you? All the crap that was on top of it, had to find another place to go. No.. but seriously, I’ve been trying to categorize, and purge my sewing room. And, it’s paying off. All of a sudden, ideas are miraculously flowing. So much so, I have sat myself down with a notepad and pen, to brainstorm the future of “whatever this is, I got going on”.
I’ve solely operated my own private label since 2007, “MissPrettyPerfect“. But, as my life changed, I am unable to look at this brand name the same way. I am definitely in a different place than I was 10 years ago. At that time I was just making handbags. Fortunately enough, my life has expanded into Designing doll clothes and creating custom patterns for private clients. How does one contain so many talents under one label? That has been challenging for me as a business owner. For the last two months, I have been considering a brand change. And, it’s OK.
I’m excited about the changes coming forth. And, I believe you’ll be excited, too! So, stay tuned to see what I come up with. I will be sure to announce every move, so that you will not miss out.
There’s still time left to save money! All of my 18 inch doll patterns are 70% off, for the month of March. But, that only leaves you with 8 more days to take advantage of this offer. Since I kept this post “short & sweet”, it gives you more time to head over to My Etsy Shop to check it out! Hope you find something fun.
“We’ve got spirit. Yes, we do. We’ve got spirit. How about you?”
Yeah, well.. about that..
I do have spirit. Yes, I do. But, I get tired sometimes, having to be my own little cheerleader. I think she takes a break every now, and again. Maybe it’s a tough job for her? There’s a lot to have to support, when it comes to me and this gift of creativity.
It’s okay to tell yourself that you are Amazing. You are brilliant at what you do. What a leader you are, that others wish they could be just like you. You’ve got it! And, while you’re at it, Go get your nails done! And, if you’re really feeling it, Go get your hair done, too.
If you’ve read the above statement, and you believe it’s true. Then, best believe, I’m talking to you, too!
Go get’em, Girl!
“Cheers” to all the Lovers of Springtime. And, happy first day of this beautiful season. Now’s the time we get in the mood for marvelous floral displays, bright bold colors of nature, and the kind of weather that we wish could be forever.
Perhaps you’ve had in your mind of doing something that you’re passionate about. Hopefully it’s sewing (If, you don’t know how to sew.. hint hint). And, also creating loving memories. Here’s to a beautiful and prosperous Spring.
If you’re not organized, you’re operating in chaos. Chaos may be a harsh term, but it fit my circumstance. From the time I began designing doll clothes, I have accumulated so many bits and pieces. These bits and pieces consist of Patterns in the form of paper copies, paper revisions, muslin samples, and final samples, all stored away in a carrying bag and pinned on my design bulletin board. I knew I would have to face this pile sooner, or later. Well, today was the day. I finally got organized.
It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. It was quite amazing to see how far I’ve come in a years time. There were even a couple of patterns I designed, that I totally forgot about! That was a nice surprise. Even while organizing, I came up with new concepts to try out. What was I so afraid of?
With my newly organized book of patterns, I can better prepare myself to produce more amazing patterns for you to enjoy.
All you need is a big ‘ole binder (or, two), plastic sheet protectors, and dividers. The dividers can help you to categorize the patterns (ie: doll/ size, clothing category, seasons, etc.) The plastic sheet protectors are great for holding the cut pattern pieces, and the sewn samples. Even if you didn’t have the chance to sew the item yet, place the cut pieces in the protector for safe keeping.. right!? (I just gave myself another idea, with that one!)
Spring, that is. I knew somewhere deep down, that Winter had not had the last say. It’s cold Everywhere. Even Florida is experiencing a cold like never before.
At least we have cute doll dresses to take our minds off of that! Speaking of “Spring” and “cute little dresses”, have you discovered my Best Selling PDF pattern, yet? Complete with cute little tie ribbons, this dress is sure to delight!

This is the suit that started it All! Something took over my body. It would not let up until I finished this outfit, from beginning to end. And, by beginning to end, I mean, 9 pattern revisions and 5 different muslin samples, later. This does not include the written instructions, or the many video clips that were used to make an awesome tutorial! But, what I can say, is that it was all worth it!
