What a lovely weekend

Ever had a weekend that was just great? I just wrapped one up. On saturday, after much stressing out (what can I say, I’m a slight perfectionist) I was a vendor at the first ever Dustbowl Arts Market in Norman, OK. Let me start out by saying I often hate doing shows. There’s the stress of getting all your product created, the struggle of setting everything up just so (countering in the fact that Oklahoma wind and weather is a tad bit unpredictable), and finally, the pressure of wanting people to fall in love with what you’ve poured your heart into. Well, I have to say that while I experienced all of the above this weekend, I also fell in love with Norman and it’s people (norman-ites?). What a great crowd! So positive and such fun to chat with! And I don’t think I even got one bit of stink eye (that’s when people make a face at you because they think you’re a crazy artist who has no grip on reality). All in all a wonderful show. I have a few pictures of my amazing boothmate Sam Lamb that I’ll post a bit later.

THEN, to top it off, QUiDvintage was on Etsy’s front page on sunday for the first time!

Where Are you?

This post is for those who may or may not care. After an uber-busy summer of madness, QUiD is getting her act back together. ‘Tis the season for stocking up on new creations for fall shows, learning new techniques (can anyone out there solder?), getting orders ready to ship, sending product to retail partners, and generally sewing like a mad woman.

In addition to all that, I’m trying to catch up on fall fashion from the runway. I’m a bit of a crazed and organized mad woman when it comes to checking out seasonal ready-to-wear. The alphabetized and notated files and folders on my computer will prove it. Oh, and did I mention I’m putting together some awesomeness for the blog coming soon?

How do you keep it together when life gets crazy?

Neglected and Destroyed

I swear I’m not trying to ignore you. Avoid? Maybe. But only because I know I’ve been neglecting you. I’m simply destroyed over the fact.
