behind the scenes of my photoshoots

For the first edition of the amazing STYLO Magazine I wrote a tutorial on adding a 'pocket square' to any basic t-shirt. It's such an easy thing to do and you can get the whole tutorial (it's free) in STYLO.

I took some pictures of my little man in his new shirt for the e-mag and thought it would be fun to give you a little peek behind the scenes of where I shoot photos like these.

When I'm not designing and sewing things, I'm working for incredible companies as a consultant. One of my clients had a whole floor of office space dedicated to a radio and video studio. They graciously allowed me to use their space from time to time to get pictures of my kids on their huge white studio background.

I've used it for photographing some of my projects like the Belle Dress, Cotton Candy inspired outfit, and reversible vest:

Happy Birthday to Me...and a present for you!

Today is my birthday! I'm feeling old-ish now but won't turn down a day of fun and gifts just because I don't want to admit to the fact that I'm getting older. And today I want to spread the birthday fun to YOU too! I will be having a flash sale on the patterns in my shop! I was born at 2:17am (many, many years ago) but since I'll be sleeping at that time I will begin the sale at 2:17pm (Central Standard Time) and it will run for one hour. Use the code BDAY to get 50% off any or all of my patterns.

One of my favorite birthdays in recent memories was when I was dating my husband. I went and had a little birthday mini-spa day while my boyfriend (now my husband) went to my apartment and filled the ENTIRE main room with balloons.
