Decorating via Polyvore

For as long as I can remember I have always loved to rearrange furniture and redecorate on a regular basis. During the last year things have stayed pretty much the same here in the Jones pad, and I am dying to make some changes. Problem is, our space combined with our furniture doesn't allow me to have more than one option which is forcing me to be creative.

Due to the fast that all I can think about is how badly I want to change things and redecorate the house, I have decided that I will live vicariously through Now, I am not sure if this is helping me feel better, but it is certainly fun!!!

Here is what I came up with so far!

Fahion Show

Tonight is the dress rehearsal for the fashion show that my pieces are going to be in tomorrow night, and I am so excited that I can hardly stand it! I finished the last two pieces for the show last night, and I can't wait to see my things on the models! The outfits will all be amazing and I am so flattered that my pieces were chosen to help accessorize the girls. It still feels like I am dreaming, and that this couldn't really be happening! I can't believe the exposure that I will be getting and am looking forward to seeing the evening unfold!

So a friend of mine pointed me to Polyvore, and let me tell you, she was totally right! It is amazing!!! I absolutely love it! I was up late last night playing around and getting to know the site, and I am pretty sure it is my new favorite stop on the web! I could spend a lot of time creating outfits and searching through other peoples's so fun! All you girlie-girls out there give it a whirl, you will not be disappointed!!! Have fun!!!

Dream Big

I can't believe what has happened over the last few days. Let me begin by saying that dreams really do come true, whether it happens all at once, or a little bit at a time.

Last week I finally buckled down and contacted the owner of a local boutique. It began with a phone call, followed by her invitation to come down with some of my things to show her what all I had. As I was driving across town, my mind was going crazy, I was nervous, excited, and giddy as all get out. I thought about what to say, and how I would say it, and about how I knew myself well enough to know that no matter what I planned to say in my head, I would most likely forget it all the second my speech was needed. Luckily for me, I didn't need a plan! She loved my stuff and wanted in an upcoming local fashion show right away. Needless to say that as I shook her had and began to walk out the door, I could not stop smiling, and haven't been able to since I left that little corner boutique at the end of last week! The next day I met with her again, and with a price list and all my accessories ready to find there home on the shelves of her boutique, I stood there in disbelief that my dream was coming true right before my eyes. I still don't think it has sunk in quite yet, but today I went in to deliver some more things and they were tagging my things. As I watched them punch the tags on to the scarves, and attach the little sticker tags to the rings, and headbands, I couldn't believe that my things actually were in a busy boutique on a downtown corner where people would wonder in and out and my things would be among all the beautiful things to look at!

True, it is not my boutique on a busy downtown corner, but it is a little step towards something that I have dreamed about since I can remember! The fashion show is this weekend and my things will actually be a part of an event! People will actually be able to see my things modeled and then also in a boutique! I can't wait to see what the future holds and am so thankful for all that has taken place so far this year (I can't believe the year is only beginning, keep it coming 2011)!!!
