Designing is fun. I love fabric and making clothes for children. I spend hours just looking for fabric, shopping for fabric, and patterns. I say patterns because I need a universal guide for sizes. Then, I take them and tweek them, add something new, alter it to fit, take this sleeve and add it to that dress. IT's like playing with paper dolls and puzzles all day. I have so much fun. I never know how it will look until the end, sometimes, I never finish that project because it just didn't arrive. It will sit in my design studio, waiting until next time. Then, it will become someone else's treasure. For now, this is one of my latest creations. I'm sure that I will make different variations, different color and print combinations. THen they will be retailed at CinderBella's in Tyler, Texas.

We made a trip to Dallas this past weekend for a baby Beauty pageant. I don't think there is any redeeming value to these events. However, it did motivate me to make an absolutely adorable dress. I don't think there is anything out there on the market or in anyone else's imagination. This turned out so cute.
I had a bunch of fun spending the weekend with my daughter, her fiance, and my grandaughter, Nevaeh. (That's Heaven spelled backwards, you know.) She is such a gift from Heaven, always smiling, laughing, dancing, and just beginning to talk.
The weekend away was just what I needed, a break and some fun to help motivate me to get started on the new teen designs that will be featured in a new local magazine. East Texas Teen magazine is a new creation of Heather Nielson. She decided that young girls needed a new avenue for recognition. Her magazine is done in good taste and modestly represents todays young high achievers and local fashion designs. I was lucky enough to be chosen to be the next fashion designer to be highlighted in the next issue published. It will come out in June/July. I can't wait. This is the biggest, luckiest break I have received yet. It makes me sound and feel so important.
I keep asking the Lord, "How can I give you glory for all of this?" Thank you Lord. Bless all the young ladies in East Texas who are struggling to find out who you want them to be.

I realized for the first time how profitable Wholesaling my items could be. It is also profitable to the retailers. The shop that I am working with said that she loves the "pay as you go" terms. My products and workmanship are of high quality. The turn around time is very speedy right now. Orders are small and economical. Customers love the new styles. I am a designer coming up with something new and different all the time.
So, I'm putting it out there that I would love to wholesale to your shop or boutique. If you are interested, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to hear from you.
