Garden Tea Party Collection
For Ladies who like to sip "Tea" with their girlfriends dans le jardin anglais
Well, I have been researching and nutting things out, on the sewing machine, in Photoshop, Illustrator, on the kitchen table-come-cutting table, everywhere in what is, a very tiny workspace. You see, I don't "have" a workspace or my own workshop...well, not yet anyway. I have been toiling away for what seems like months now and I can finally reveal some of what I have been actually doing. So what I am about to reveal to you is a little bit of a sneak preview. Shhhh....it's private and only you are allowed to see it, ok?
Inspired by vintage cotton prints I would like to introduce to you a new collection of " Les Printemps" inspired masks.
The front is 100% lightweight cotton, the back, black jersey bamboo which is so delightfully soft on your skin it will make you melt. I promise. As usual I have stuffed the mask and the back of the mask now has an adjustable elastic so that it fits all heads, big and small. The edging is decorated with vintage cotton lace which I just adore.
The inspiration is definitely feminine, a sweet vintage feminity or as one perfume title I saw recently - pure "Womanity".
Please comment and let me know what you think,
Ahh....it's been a while, I know. Since January of this year I decided to close my shops on Artfire and Etsy temporarily in order to rethink exactly what my goals were, what I wanted to create and the "how" of it. I bought a brand spanking new Janome Sewing Machine which has turned out to be such a dream! The things I could do with it are almost (almost) endless. In other areas such as the sleep mask creation things have moved along nicely and I think I have come up with some wonderful new products, re-invented them, adding to the standard collection I created last year.
There is only one problem though. That is, liaising with other companies in order to realise your dream. Sometimes I just prefer to work on my own! Without going into too much detail right now I have chosen the slowest companies on the planet to produce my new small but necessary additions to my products - hangtags and woven labels.
So it is now, I am still waiting, waiting for the email to come from these American companies (who I do not wish to name) after more than 5 weeks emailing back and forth, waiting with my proofs so that I can finally finally finally produce the two things I greatly need so that I can re-open my shop again.
Until then I will continue to make beautiful new boudoir things,
Follow updates on Facebook.
The goal is to re-open shops by the end of this month. But then again, it may be wishful thinking.
A the moment things are a little quiet. I have been very busy redeveloping the logo. It won't change much from the original but I decided to add a little extra in the re-design of the small elements that make up the logo.
I have also ordered new woven labels and hangtags which are taking longer than expected and holding up the relaunch of Love Me Sugar.
But fret not, I have been busy creating new sleepmasks, blindfolds and exploring new fabrics so stay tuned.
I hope to be up and running again by the end of April, although as I am at the mercy of others I am holding my breath.
In the meantime, don't forgot to follow us on Facebook.
