Emerson Made: Mod Dress

Monday, January 31, 2011

Happy Monday!

I need a pattern for this dress ASAP. Emerson-you have perfected the perfect everyday dress. I can't afford is sadly but it seems like a easy dress to sew. I just need to track down the perfect pattern to match OR I could always pick up this book and MAKE MY OWN PATTERN*. OMG.

Emerson-you are precious (and your husband is a FOX). I love you and your EMERSONMADE empire. If you ever need extra hands on the farm, I am available.

That is all.

*If I ever get around to actually making a dress like this it would never turn out as beautiful as Emerson's and I would never turn around and profit from someone else's design, it would be for my personal use only.

Eric Carle and Custom Prints

Thursday, January 27, 2011

Here are 2 custom prints I did for a Mom decorating her boy/girl room with Eric Carle curtains. Who doesn't love The Very Hungry Caterpillar?! I can't wait to see the finished project in the pictures I practically BEGGED to see.

I especially love the tie in to another children's classic, Goodnight Moon. Goodnight MUSH-anyone? See if you can spot the mush in the room above? Hint-it is by the BRUSH! :)

I will keep you all posted on the pictures of the room!

P.S. Tomorrow is Friday.

Honky Tonkin'

Friday, January 21, 2011

These are not my friends but they look like a lot of fun. Found here.

I am headed to Nashville, TN tonight with all my girls to attend and engagement party for one of our besties on Saturday.

After that-we are going honky tonkin'.

I am way too excited about this and am having a hard time picking out the perfect outfit to boot, scoot and boogie in.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Thank you Jan and Earl for creating such a wonderful environment for all of us crafters to showcase our goods! If you haven't already you should also check out their blog! It is fabulous.

Quote Worthy Wednesday: Inspiration for Your Everyday

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

Welcome to Quote Worthy Wednesday, where every Wednesday I will be posting a little something to lift your spirits, get you inspired, make you smile or make you think.

I have always had a love of inspirations quotes and find that there is always one that that is perfect for the situation. I have decided to meld my "quotational lurve" and some pretty graphic skills into a new weekly series here on Katie Company.

Feel free to spread the love and repost (just remember to link back to me)! Most of the time I won't be going into detail about what the weekly quote means to me and how it makes me want to run through fields ala Sound of Music, yada, yada, yada... They are meant to be interpreted by you, the reader.

Go forth my friends interpret till your heart is content. Let me know if a particular quote strikes a chord with you, changes the way you think or makes you want to turn into Julie Andrews...


Snow/Ice Day in Tuscaloosa

Monday, January 10, 2011

I am sure most of you have heard about the Winter Storm the swept through Alabama last night... Needless to say, we get pretty excited (ok-we go overboard) at the mention of SNOW. Here is picture of the bread isle in a grocery store in Trussville, AL. Seriously, 1-3 inches predicted and we clear out a bread isle in 1 hour.

I know all you people who get regular snow showers are laughing at us, but hey-at least we are prepared... :)

All jokes aside-I am at home due to icy conditions on the road and my horoscope ending in this sentence: "Avoid accidents that may involve fire or metal". Um, ok.

I have some great posts planned and may or may not have a few "Weekly Blog Series" I am working on. Yes. Get excited.

Now I am off to convince my sister to help me put together my new cabinet for my craft room that Santa brought me for Christmas!

Happy Colors

Buddy the Elf/Bichon

Tuesday, January 4, 2011

Yes, I know Christmas is over but look at this little guy who is now the newest member of my family! My sister's BF surprised her with this little love muffin 2 days before Christmas!

His name is Buddy and I love him. I also spoil him rotten.

Bring It On 2011

Monday, January 3, 2011

Happy New Year everyone! After a much needed vacation, I rang in 2011 with some help from my Grandmothers sequin drawer. This was just one of the gems that I found and decided that it would be the prefect "sparkle" to dance the night away in.

As far as resolutions go, I know we all make one but this year I hope to stick to mine. No, not to loose weight or make my bed everyday, but this year I am going to live my life to the fullest. I won't stress the small stuff and I will take everyday with a grain of salt. I don't want to miss out on ANYTHING this year. I want to really LIVE. I want to try new things and not be afraid of failure. I want to be inspired and inspire everyone around me.

It is day 3 of 2011 and yes, this seems like a huge undertaking for me but I am taking it one day at a time.

So, here's to you and and your New Years resolution. I hope that 2011 holds as much promise for you as I know it does for me!

BRING IT ON 2011!!!
