So much to do!

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2008

Okay so truth be told I am barely staying on task right now by doing the blog thang. I have 3 pages on my to do list and the least painful is blogging. I am in the midst of restructuring lots of things with DIY Lounge. I am outgrowing many of the systems that I put in place when I began DIY. I find myself vacilating between excitement at all of the great new things that are happening and feeling stressed about all the things I need to do to make everything work.

The new store on Woodstock is slated to open on May 19th with an official grand opening party on May 31st. We will begin classes at the new location in July. I still have a ton of new teachers in “the hopper” that I will be adding on the schedule in the very near future. One of them is a stained glass and mosaic artist so we will have those as classes in the near future!

So completely unrelated to what I am talking about, I just got a hair cut and I love it! I go to see Beth at Nurture salon. Here tagline is stylist to the stars which is both funny and adorable. Here is a picture of me with my new do! It might be hard to see but it is longer in the front and really short in the back (sort of bob style with length in the front).

You know how in the old time movies and cartoons the “sexy ladies” would sort of fluff their hair in the back to appear more attractive? I used to think, who would do that? Please note that in almost every picture I am doing that. So who would do that? Me! With a sassy new do.

There I go with the hand again.

I have a smirky, up to something look on my face here, which is true. I am always up to something. Right now I am so hot to trot on reconstructed sweaters and sweatshirts. I can’t stop thinking about them. I want to make them so bad! I need to get a little more caught up and then watch out world, because I am dead serious here! I have this feeling in my hands and chest that I feel certain will only go away by making reconstructed clothing. It is a deep yearning to do this and do this now. I plan to make up some new duds for my other business Knot Ugly Designs and also to teach a how to reconstruct your wardrobe series at DIY Lounge. As a matter of fact I need to go and work on that a little right now! Chat later!
