End of an era

Last night, we headed to the Bluebird Theater to celebrate our friend Kimmy's last night there.
After 14 years at the Bluebird, Kimmy is "throwin' in the towel!"
Although you can't really see it in this photo, she is literally throwing in the towel.  :)
All of our closest friends, including a few faces from the past, were on hand to celebrate the big night.
I loooooooooove this next picture.  Look at these rockstars.
What a night!  So happy for you, Kimmy!

Friday was a fantastic evening, too! 
 We celebrated Natalie's birthday...

...IN STYLE!  
We started the evening at Colt & Gray.
Yummy drinks and lots of giggles.

Then we went around the corner to Sushi Sasa.


The food was DEEEEELISH.  The atmosphere was good stuff.  Our waiter was a good egg.

Happy birthday, Natalie!!!!

Now...I must get ready for a BIG WEEK.  Lots of work to do.

Fern and Sprout will be a featured accessory designer in the "Picture DiverCity" Fashion Show, at Union Station on Friday Night, February 4, at Union Station.  So excited!
More info to come!

I will be collaborating with two fashion designers:
Kimono Dragons and Fast Geek Boutique!
Can't wait!

I will have something VERY EXCITING to share with you on Tuesday!
Stay tuned!

Here's a peek... some of my new goodies for SPRING!!!

I found this cute top at the thrift store.

It makes an even CUTER headband!!
I can't get enough of this gold metallic fabric!
This top was also purchased at the thrift store.
I am loving the transformation...
This piece has a "vintage" feel to it.
I love being "green."  More sneak peeks to come!

Here's another peek at something my friend, Natalie is working on...
She's going to be a very busy girl.  Her Etsy shop is coming soon.
AND her first single from her new album drops on February 15!!!!

AND... tomorrow is her birthday!


Hope you enjoyed a little glance at what's coming.
Etsy update is happening very soon.  Promise.

I apologize.

I am so sorry for the lack of posts, this week.  I'm feeling a bit "off."  Of course, I have lots of work to do - so when I have downtime, it has really been DOWNTIME.  Please forgive me!
This is a picture of the fireplace at the cabin.  Wish I was there.
I am working on my spring designs.  I'll give you a preview SOMETIME this week.
And - I really am going to attempt an Etsy update.  Just don't know when.

Thanks for hanging in there with me!

A helping hand...

Meet Annie!
Isn't she just adorable?
She is going to be giving me some MUCH NEEDED help with Fern and Sprout!
I found her, (or should I say she found me?) at one of my favorite shops, 5 Green Boxes - which is right down the street from my studio!
I am soooooooooooooo excited to have her fantastic energy, her lovely sense of style, her design experience, her organizational assistance, and most of all, her bad-ass crafty skills!  (She made the GORGEOUS scarf she is wearing!)

Welcome to Fern and Sprout, Annie!

Thangs are gettin' BIZZZAY around here.  
It will be fantastic to have someone else to help me out.

I've been working with a new fabric for spring...

Jersey knit - I am using old T-shirts, and refashioning them into headbands and other accessories.

You can find this particular headband at Decade on South Broadway.
Bracelets, too!
So delightful for spring!!

♡♡♡Happy Friday!♡♡♡

Kicking my past to the curb...

I am feeling very blue.  I am saying goodbye to someone who has been a vital part of my life.  Time to let go.  But it's funny how life works.  When one door closes, another opens.  As I say goodbye to this friend, I welcome a new friend to my life.  I welcome a new season.  Although I am completely heartbroken, I must move forward.

Here is some "blue inspiration" to get me through this evening.

Sleep well.
