and yea Google...IT IS EASTER...get a clue! ugh!! Maybe I should start using Yahoo again.

So I just wanted to wish everyone Happy Easter. Enjoy your time with family today.

I will will be posting pictures of my pants in the next two days....possibly even later today.

We are going to grandma's today for brunch, then I will come home and pick the final lineup for my Blumarine project, and then create flats and 3D samples.

I can't believe it is already going to be April. Wow...where does the time go?? I noticed many more boats out cruising the York yesterday, which means that we launch our baby soon! I can't wait to get out on the water feel that warm breeze in my hair as we zoom across the surface. It's the best!!
This year, we are spending the 4th of July out on the boat. Normally we don't because of how busy it is, but this year...there is no way you are keeping me from the water. We might go to a lake and stay...not sure yet.

I need to drink my coffee and get ready to go. Have a great day!
Until next post,

Let it snow???

So on Saturday I was on my deck sunning myself with my husband and son. We had BBQ and got a little color.
On Sunday....this is what happened....

IS that SNOW????

My daffodils say YES
Definitely snow....
Its really coming down now!

Soren walking across the yard with his robe on! You can see the lawnmower handle! The snow kept the mowing from happening!

Big flakes

The driveway looking pretty white now!

A panorama of the street

Looking down the street!
 And here is some Video John took...I love it. So pretty!

Looking the other way...

My Neighbors made a snowman! LOL!
I am just so surprised we went from warmer temps, to snow in a matter of hours. And here is what the weather looks like for the next 10 days here...

Wild and wacky weather for sure!!!!

The next 13 days are going to be extremely busy for me. I have "double duty" work to do for school, as I want to get the work done for the time I will be out of town. So I have more than one module for each class to complete in the next few days...yikes. Oh well! It will be worth it! :-) I will be more able to relax and not worry about what I am missing when I am with my family. I just want to have a nice time.

I can't believe this is the last week of March! How amazing. Time is just flying by. I have shopping for Soren to do (he needs shorts!) Little boys grow quickly! Almost all the clothing he wore last spring, is too small for him. I also need to begin packing. I like to edit stuff down, and for this trip I don't want to take a lot of stuff. I just don't feel like it. Bikini's, shorts, a few sundresses and a hoodie is all I want to take (along with a few other essentials of course.) The less fabric something has, means the smaller the bag I can take. YAY.

I need to finish up my tea, and begin my work. Fun, fun ,fun!

I hope you have a wonderful week, and if you live on the east coast, please be careful driving, and keep warm!
Until next post,

Updates on my design project Blumarine/Marie Antoinette

I have been very busy working on my next collection for project 2 in my design class. For this project you have to design for a label, and choose a movie as your "jumping off point" for your inspiration. The label I am designing for is Blumarine, and my movie is Marie Antoinette.

Blumarine 2013

Love this dress!!

My inspiration

And this is the main color I have picked for my collection. I LOVE PINK!!!
Blumarine is a very FUN and FEMININE label!! It is VERY ME. I love the color pink, and so does Anna Molinari.

I want this dress!!

Love the Ombre!

I have a lot more croquis to work on today. I need to get my project done early, as I will be out of town when it is due.
I wish I had a huge bank account, because I would be at Blumarine right now buying up all these clothes! So pretty!! Here are some more spring/Summer clothes from Blumarine...

Coral, black and white! YES!


This is from the beachwear line...I love the shorts

You can really see how the feminine styling of Blumarine will work well with Marie Antoinette. I love all of Anna's designs. They are fabulous!!

Time for me to get back to work! Have a great week!
