Ashley Got Married

I have known this family for years and even made Ashley's Prom Dress (got those photos somewhere, in an older blog)....So when she announced I she chose me to make her Wedding dress, she did so in Social Network style, by posting a red jacket that I made her Grandmother Lois.  I was so honored especially since, this young lady is such a fashionista.  I was also to make Dawn (the brides Mother) and Lois (the Grandmother), dresses as well.

The Sketchbook Project

One Thursday a friend invited me to The Brooklyn Art Library, which has nothing to do with the Public Library.  It is a completely creative experience. They have over 40,000 sketchbooks on their shelves and 20,000 in their digital library.   The day we were there, they were preparing for a wedding, which was unique because it was a Thursday afternoon....not even after work...smart couple, to save lots of money.
