It's your chronically sleep-deprived corset enthusiast!
There's a lot of movement around here - moving house (in a manner of speaking), moving my website to a new host, and moving parts in my business too!
I've been holding odd hours as of late since I took on the new project of choosing some new colorways for Timeless Trends (all about that on my Patreon). I've been taking phone calls at 1am with the folks in Thailand - so if you receive an email response from me at 2am, please look the other way - that's just my insomnia kicking in! 😆
The experience has been a lot of fun so far; we've picked out 35 fabrics picked out in the past two months, which is the equivalent of nearly 8 months worth of colorways! The plan is to have a year's worth planned out in advance (with of course some wiggle room if we find something irresistible and in-season), and then things should relax a little bit on the colorway designing, and I'll be able to pull some of my other corset projects off of the backburner (like hopefully a new silhouette later this year?!?! 🎉)
I am loving springtime and Daylight Savings Time. Most people hate losing an hour of sleep, but I absolutely love having more light in the evenings. I finally feel alive again, and wish we could stay in this time zone all year round.
This winter was a hard one - work-related burnout, anxiety about family well-being, winter blues, and postpartum depression is a dangerous cocktail of stressors. But for the first time in a long time, the clouds are lifting. There is a lot to be grateful for: sunshiny weather, my sister regaining her health, my baby turning a year old, being home with my husband/best friend again, and of course, YOU my ever-patient and supportive community!
This year shaping up to be overall more optimistic than the previous three combined, and I hope I can in turn share a little joy with you through my upcoming content and designs. 💖
