That’s a wrap, 2017! This year saw me in business mode full-time. I had no idea starting Curvy Custom Bride would make me feel so raw. It felt like I was finally burning off the rest of what was holding me back. It was hard. And worth it.
I hired LuDesign Studio for my Curvy Custom Bride logo and I couldn’t be happier!
That leaves the Three Dresses Project needing a redesign. That’s where LuDesign Studio helped, as well. I’ll be transitioning my Three Dresses Project work to LMB. For now, any of the work that I do that doesn’t fit in the bridal realm will go here and on my Three Dresses Project social media.
Looking back, I made some really cool pieces for clients.
My best of 9 on Instagram tells me you guys love my dramatic side and I appreciate that cos I’ve got more where that came from!
It was definitely a great way to end the year! What a high to see my dress on the lovely Chloe. This whole shoot was such a great experience. An amazing team!
My friend Angela Leisure has been a huge support, with and without her camera, but she does such a great job capturing me working!
A great project from early in 2017…the kid versions of the Beatles costumes for their dad’s 40th birthday celebration! This one reminded me that I can do just about anything.
And there was that time that my work got regrammed by Kenneth D. King. Yeah. That was encouraging.
I was looking through year in review posts like this one and I found that in 2013 I started doing the word of the year in lieu of new year’s resolutions. Here’s what I found:
2014: I was confused why I couldn’t find my word of the year but then came across my divorce post. After reading it, I think, unofficially, my word was Planning, though Balance was a big word for me that year.
Which brings us to 2018.
My word is Structure.
What could that possibly mean? I have a slight clue but that’s the beauty of these words. They tend to evolve throughout the year and take shape as I open myself up to the creative juices in me.
Happy New Year, everyone! I’m pumped by 2018 and the seeds I’ve planted in 2017.
