Adios June, Aloha July!!!

What can I say? Somehow June seems to have had an abundance of family time and less work. I’ve enjoyed it. Not to negate the work that was done, but work is always there (for the most part). I’m definitely ready for July though . . . maybe not the extra added heat that usually accompanies this month, but I love starting anew, and that is what this new month provides for me. Work will definitely amp up this month as I prepare for the MAGIC show, line revisions and completions. I can’t wait to share some of the new bags with you. Right now they are in the process of being transformed from paper to real life. It’s like I am in the beginning stages of labor!!! -The part where you are like “OMG, I think I’m in labor!” (Not the agonizing drop-to-the-floor-scream-out-your-husband’s-name-and-curse-the-day-you-met kind of labor). Anyway, My plate is still piled high for today. I am looking forward to the breather that comes with completion of projects. Enjoy this last day of June, and prepare to embrace the future that is JULY!!! xo


Summer Kick Off!!! Fun, Fam, Sun & Tech Packs!

Yesterday we rang in summer vacation by spending time with my brother and his family @ The Four Seasons in B. Hills. There’s nothing like spending time with the ones you love. Kids had a blast, and we all created more lifetime memories. ┬áTruly a great beginning to the summer!

On a fashion note, one of my dear friends commented on my post the other day. She had a really great question that I want to share for those of you who may not know. I mentioned that for the next few weeks I would be working on tech packs for the collection, and she wanted to know what those were. A tech pack, or technical package is a compilation of all the detailed information, (ie. measurements, specifications, drawings & even pictures), you will need to create samples and manufacture the line. A tech pack usually contains a black & white flat sketch of the design with all of the measurements and information needed to make the item- in this case, a handbag.  Here are a few images of some of my previous tech packs and the finished sample . . .

Well guys, I am off to celebrate the college graduation of my nephew! My, how time flies!!!! I hope you are all having a fantabulous Friday. Drink in the day and exhale it’s blessings!!! xo
