I Have Another New Blog!

It's hard to wait for another season of Project Runway. So I (along with my fabulous BPR Team) am tackling a new show. It's called Top Design and it debuts on January 31st on Bravo. I've seen part of the first episode already and it is a lot of fun. And I am all about the fun of course!

Maybe this show will inspire me to decorate MY house! We shall see...

Happy New Year!

Like 99.9% of the bloggers out there I am pledging to be a better blogger in 2007. Oh sure my Project Runway blog was very busy last year, but what about Ruby? Poor Ruby is so neglected.

I know I've said this before but this time I REALLY mean it.

Here are some additional resolutions:

1. Sewing for fun again - not for sales.

2. Sewing more gifts. When I look at the gifts that I purchased for the girls in my family, I am certain that they would prefer my handcrafted ornaments and bags. I pledge handmade gifts for all next year. Actually there are some women in my family who literally BEG me for angels and vintage stocking ornaments. What is wrong with me? I can certainly make these things again.

3. Not so much garment sewing. Maybe even a moratorium on garments. Kaitlin has enough clothes and I have a box of stale inventory that will probably wind up in the charity pile.

4. Time to re-decorate this house. Talk about stale! We moved in about eleven years ago and most of the furniture is in the same places that the movers placed it when we moved in. Mom gave me a beautiful painting for Christmas and I could re-decorate the entire house around it!

5. Who will hold me accountable?

It's a Christmas Miracle!

Four of our children are employed! Yes - at this very moment Matthew is working at a ski resort in Colorado, Kaitlin is working at Anthropologie in the Scottsdale Fashion Square, Daniel is working at Chipotle and James - yes James, age 14 - is working at Safeway!

In other news, yours truly is the proud winner of four passes to see the movie "The Nativity." I rewrote "Frosty the Snowman" for Arizona. We have "Dusty the Sandman" here in AZ. A local radio station was holding a contest. Of course I couldn't resist.
