My Idea of a HOT Bachelor Pad...

I know, most men live in a basement or room and it's rare to find a single man who lives like this and is not Gay or living with a woman...but, a girl can dream...can't she?





Another Easy D.I.Y.


It's kinda self explanatory...you can use packaging tubes or PVC pipe from Home Depot...cut pieces to equal sizes, line them up and hot glue one on top of the other...I think this would look great in a teens room...you know how they love to collect sneakers...

...Another sleepless night and morning...

...Again, these creative thoughts won't let me sleep...last night I got started on this robe...my old robe is just fine...but, after watching "Mahogany" for the 3rd time I decided I wanted something nicer...I had this fabric in the closet for at least a year and I always wanted a kimono styled robe but they usually cost more than my cable bill...so what's a designing girl to do...when her daughter wants to watch the Disney Channel?

...draping...

...thinking....

...tweaking...

...tada...


...finished....I heart it...can't wait to try it out this weekend...

every girl needs a beautiful robe...you know, the kind you wear when your making breakfast after a grown and sexy evening...and if the evening went really well, you'll be sipping coffee, and looking cute while someone else makes the eggs...smile.

Sorry, this won't be in my Etsy Shop...the cost to make is too prohibitive...

This is what I've been up to...

...My clients office is coming together...the desk and guest chairs were delivered just in time for another snow storm here in NYC....UGH! Still hunting for the perfect sofa...

It's Video Tuesday, Let's go apt. hunting in Harlem, NY

I'll reserve my commentary until later...out of towners, let me know what you think...what would $700,000 buy in your community?

i'm having a "Mahogany" moment...


...This is a must see movie for any designer, designer in training, artist or just about anyone who loves a great love story with a fashion plot...What could be better than Diana Ross as a girl from a Chicago ghetto trying to make her design dreams come true...(according the the internet, Diana Ross designed most of the clothes in the movie herself) Billy Dee Williams plays her on again off again Chicago, community organizer boyfriend (Hum, did Obama watch this movie as a kid?)...and Anthony Perkins is her closeted gay, svengalhi, sp.? Oh yeah, it was directed by Berry Gordy former owner of Motown...When I saw this movie as a kid I was well on my way of dreaming about being a designer, but seeing this movie sealed the deal for me...there was nothing else I wanted to be...well, besides a mom...smile...If you get the chance check it out, you won't be disappointed...think I'll watch it again tonight...

My cousin took me out for drinks and dinner last night, thanks "S"...good times...I woke up with a little bit of a hangover and a lot of inspiration...I'm going out again next weekend...this is the birthday that doesn't end...I feel like Mini...So, i decided to drape this old fabric and fashion it into something I could wear next weekend...It's mahogany inspired...





Another sleepless night....

I was thinking about an origami image I saw earlier and I had this really cool knit fabric and I needed a cool sleeve for my laptop, which was taking a beating in my tote bag and I came up with this...so cool....It stretches, so any size laptop will fit....




Available for sale in my Etsy Shop.

I heart Etsy...

...while I'm sleeping people are shopping...it's like having your store open 24 hours a day with no employees...How cool is that? More shirts and a fanny pack leaving the store today...Yeah!

O.K....extra easy D.I.Y.

...go out, pick up different size branches, tie them around and old ugly lamp...secure with hot glue...or an extra strength rubber band, or just sting....this would look hot spray painted in some funky color too...go wild...try it this weekend...

How Cute and Clever...

..If I were designing a craft space it would say, "create". This would look great in a restaurant or coffee shop...."drink".


Look of the day...

I'm taking Mini and her friend Tao back to visit their old school today and I'll be rocking something like this...

I'm thinking about doing this to Mini's room...


...Just thinking...not sure if I'm neurotic enough to do it...

Thank you...

...I would like to thank K. and K. for coming out last night to celebrate my birthday...and your gifts really touched me...my girls know me so well...XOXOX

Thanks to everyone who wished me a happy b-day...especially my best friend from 2nd grade, who I haven't spoken to in like, forever...and she still remembers my b-day...now that's the gift of friendship...

Today is my Birthday...Happy, Happy, Birthday...




Go Shorty...it's my birthday...Nice remix with Beyonce' and 50... Mini and I will be celebrating with cake, icecream, family, friends and champagne...Enjoy!
