Today is my turn on the Around the World Blog Hop. I was tagged by Karin Jordan of Leigh Laurel Studios. Karin and I met a few years ago in blogland. She was my first blog friend and I love running into her on blog hops and other fun events we take part in. She comes up with awesome projects and the images she posts are always fantastic. Check out her Fruit Ninja quilt. A pattern is in the works and I can’t wait to get my hands on it! She shares adorable pictures of day to day life with her kids. Her photos always bring a smile to my face.
1) What am I working on?
I am in the mix of way too many things right now, with no real outcomes.. Most are kid related tutorials. I never thought I would want to sew “kid stuff”, but I’m really inspired by toddlers right now. My little one has decided to stop taking his naps, so my schedule has turned up side down! I’m working double time getting my projects completed and photographed.
2) How does my work differ from other in its genre?
That’s a tough one. I think everyone loves to sew for the simple love of sewing. I like to sew things that are unexpected and to also try out new materials. Right now I love sewing with vinyl and working it into projects in unique ways.
3) Why do I write/create what I do?
I studied fashion design at the Ryerson University in Toronto. After graduation I moved to New York and worked in the fashion industry. A few years ago, my husband had a business opportunity that brought us to Florida. While I’m enjoying a quieter life, I miss NYC and the excitement and inspiration from living in that city. Having a blog is the perfect mesh of inspiration and creating results. It’s an awesome outlet for the ideas that run through my head.
Ok.. I’ve tagged 2 awesome people for next week.. Here they are:
Agnes Hsu of Hello Wonderful. Agnes is an amazing photographer. Check out the images of her kids and projects on her blog and you can see why she has been featured in print and online.. Better Homes and Garden, Buzzfeed and Babble to name a few. She is the curator of “wonderful” tutorials, but the ones featuring her kids are truly amazing.
Palak Shah of Sewistry. I love the motto behind Palak’s blog “Sew to Save Money and Save Money Sewing”. I find that sewing can be very expensive, so I love the inspiration and budget friendly projects shared on Palak’s blog.
Thanks Karin for the tag. Have a great week and happy sewing.
