Simple Summer Tank

One of the greatest perks of knowing how to sew is being able to re-create things you’ve seen someone wearing, at the stores, on TV, from music, art, etc. I am one who does this OFTEN and is probably what got me going with design in the first place, when I was very young and […]

Statement Kimono

Sure, it was 95 degrees when we took these pictures, but thank goodness for fun kimonos to throw on in the summer air conditioning! You know how it goes…you’re boiling hot on a 90 some degree day in the middle of summer and all you really want to do is jump in a pool or […]

An Intentional Match

When I was in college (going on 10 years ago now :X) , I started my first blog and called it Callie’s Closet. This was when blogs were starting to become a “thing” and I thought I’d give it a go. At first, I struggled with finding my voice–I constantly kept thinking about who I […]

The Fuzzy Bomber Jacket

It’s funny, as I sit here posting this and looking at the photos which were taken yesterday, and then look outside the window…something is missing. The snow. As you’ll see in the pics…there is snow on the ground. And less than 24 hours later, it is all gone. Weird how it can take a while […]

Holiday Sparkle

Last year it seemed like the holiday season came and went and there wasn’t too much time to enjoy it ( I guess it often feels like that), but this year I made it a point to slow down a little and really enjoy the season. I’ve made several pieces (yay!) I’ve watched a bunch […]
