About me

Industry Fashion
Occupation Designer, Seamstress, Salesperson...
Location Dallas, TX, United States
Introduction I am a creator. I sew, paint, install french doors, and wield a mean reciprocating saw. When I graduated in August 2008 with a degree in Fashion design the economy and my job prospects went to hell, so I bought an 85 year old red brick house in Oak Cliff that needs a lot of work and set about making my own an unconventional way. My life consists of my job helping to run a local boutique, my small but growing business as a fashion designer and seamstress, and my adventures restoring and improving this lovely old house and grounds with a little money, a LOT of muscle, and a lot of staring from my hispanic neighborhod who's never seen a gringa do her own plumbing. It all occurs amidst the fabulous chaos of three canine sidekicks who love to destroy things when I'm not looking, and with the help of my family as well as my bff and life partner, Marco, who is always calm and always has my back. One of my best friends, Michal, says my adventures in home improvement would make a good blog, so this is for you Michal, and if anyone else happens to like it I'll be massively complimented.
