Musings of an obsessed teacher/stitcher/designer/fashionista/wife/mom

My latest obsession is label-making so you'll be seeing alot of these little creations. They are labor intensive and far more work than I had imagined. It seems so simple - just pick a font and type my name...
It's my nature to take the simple and complicate it as much as humanly possible or I just don't feel right.
My background is in fashion design. I've worked for Sue Wong, Tina Hansen, Sassoon and a few other great designers. My first job was as a sample cutter (while in design school) and I can cut with the best of them. I learned to use 12inch scissors and can't cut with anything smaller. I still consider that position one of my best jobs...I now teach sewing/machine embroidery as a profession and I can usually be caught staring into space designing my next project. Hubby has to snap me out of it on a regular basis. I would rather be designing/sewing than just about anything else, aside from hanging out with my family.
Gardening and cooking Indian food run a close second but unfortunately there are not enough hours in a day to be totally and completely self indulgent.
