Storing Heirloom Clothing

Category:General,Organizing,Uncategorised

In storing heirloom clothing properly, your keepsake-items can last through generations.

These items were made by myself and my mom for my daughter. My mom did the knitted outfit, and I did the design and sewing of the other pieces. With the exception of the “My 1st Christmas” piece which is a treasure that she received as a Christmas gift.

I’m following the model of careful storage for these treasured pieces to ensure that they stay in good shape for the long term.

Christmas Came Early in 2015

Category:General,Organizing,Uncategorised Tags : 

Christmas Came Early in 2015 to my home. I did it. It was not in being super organized that I decorated before Halloween was even over…it was because I discovered a store that had a treasure chest of mini Santa suits, and felt mice, just the right size to fit into a tree…and I wanted to capture, I mean buy them before they were discovered and scooped up by all.

Sea and Sun, Rest and Energy

Category:General,Organizing,Uncategorised

Sea and sun, rest and energy. A prefect combination for an artist to get restored.

“Cirque du Soleil means Circus of the Sun. When I need to take time to reenergize, I go somewhere by the ocean to sit back and watch the sunsets. That is where the idea of ‘Soleil’ came from, on a beach in Hawaii, and because the sun is the symbol of youth and energy.” Guy Laliberte
