LA Bound-Fake Flower Distraction
Heading off to LA this morning to participate in Unique LA, a show I have never participated in. I had multiple and equally terrible dreams last night about a disorganized shit show on my end. I wasn’t set up on time, dresses weren’t priced or steamed and I was a sweaty, stressed out mess. For some crazy reason my kids and their friends were in my dream, scattered about the booth, this would be super fun and fine now since they are older but in my nightmare they were all toddlers!
Sometimes when I am stressed and have an event coming up, I totally distract myself with some unnecessary usually unrelated project or another. I make a big ol’ mess and end up losing another show prep day without checking any boxes of my list. Earlier this week I spent two days trying to create a prototype of these awesome flower clips that existed in my head. After hitting all the crazy craft and fabric stores, spending money I needed for dresses and basically just dicking around with all the craft shit I own, I managed to create one prototype I liked after many attempts. I ended up making five clips and hope I haven’t gone insane. I made them because I wanted something fun and bold that screamed SUMMER!
It turns out these flower pins also look pretty good on my denim jacket. I will have some with me at the Unique LA show this weekend. I don’t think anyone reads this journal but if you mention it at the show or email me about it, I’ll give you 10% off anything or a code to use on the website.
