I'm BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACK (well here that is!)

A while back I switched all of my bloging over to my Clair Vintage Inspired website. I was stoked to get it all snazzy and integrated.

Except one thing - Wordpress confuses the shit out of me. Maybe I'm just a creature of habit, but I find Blogger easier to use. I've also done a lot of different things this year, and my line is not my only thing going on. So I like to keep a little story, if not only for myself, as to what all I have going on.

This happened:

So I'm back here, this blog is what I'm up to, with all of the things I do.

In the most exciting news, I will be embarking out of a corporate "day job" into a freelance Patternmaker. December 1 is my first day as my own agent. I'll still be doing my line, and other things I do, but I'm excited (also see a wee bit scared!) to be my own gal. I think I'll be happier in general, and get to work on a lot more things in a capacity that I love.

I froze my T+A off last weekend

But it was for a good cause! One of my oldest friends, Jenny, keeps convincing me to do the Polar Plunge. This year we went for swimsuits only, instead of fully clothed. We got Snuggies to go over them and put velcro up the back so we could rip them off in dramatic fashion. (and stay sorta warm!) Plus we got sweet swim hats!

Together we raised $680 for Special Olympics Oregon.

I just hope new year some more people will join us! We get sweet ass swim hats, get to hot glue gems on things, and best of all we are TEAM ICEHOLES!

Based on how excited I am about everything all the time I'd say I have this one under control.

We were having a little too much fun at Sarah Giffrow Creative last week. It was product shot time, and Cheryl and I were running a muck before and during the shoot.

First off we got waaaaaaaaaay too excited about the new window space and were trying out our mannequin poses. (ya know, in cause either of us ever have to quit our day jobs)

 I thought I had a straight face until I saw this big. What you are missing is Rita popping out the door to the left.

Then we came to the realization that I am super short, and Cheryl is super tall. So we did this quick pose Twins style. (I'm Danny Devito)

One of my favorite things

Is seeing people wearing the dresses I make. Really. It will never ever get old. Here is one of my friend Annick wearing the Ascot dress. She's adorable, and she has a REAL LIVE unicorn.

Send me photos if you wearing my goodies. xo

Update on little Bird

As you may remember, late last Spring my husband and I took in a foster from Hopes Haven that was in pretty bad shape. He had mange, and was so underweight that he could not even be neutered.

At 4lbs and mostly naked, his little personally stood out so much so, he had no clue his condition. He was so tiny and cold we had to buy baby onsies to keep him warm. We had to give him baths almost every other day to help his skin heal.
Now you wouldn't believe he is even the same dog.

He's 7.5lbs, full of hair, and quite the acrobat! He bounces around like an animated character, and is a lover of everyone. Especially my husband.
