The glamorous life of a designer

Oh what a glamorous life I lead. Designing clothing, meeting with pattern makers, manufacturers, sourcing new fabric, it is all very chic (insert sound of record screaching to a halt). O-kay, the reality is that I do all those things while being at home with my three wild, I mean lovely children. It is FAR from glamorous. In fact, most days if someone were to peek through my windows they would either call for back up, or hurt themselves from laughing so hard.

I don't know if this is the norm, but it isn't uncommon for me to be in the middle of a phone meeting while cleaning up the syrup that my youngest used to decorate the entire house. Really? How does a 2 y.o. empty and entire bottle of syrup (just opened that morning) within 30 seconds. Doesn't it take that long just to turn it over and start to squeeze? Have you ever tried to wash syrup out of the hair of a little girl that has curls like Shirley Temple? Oh the glamorous life I lead. I have decided to start calling our youngest Eloise because of the things that go through her little 2 y.o. mind. But when she falls asleep.........ahhh, my sweet little angel appears.

But, in the mean time, I'll go back to pretending that when all is quiet like I have a chic loft office where my designs are the talk of the towb, towm, sorry to TOWN. I guess the syrup founds it's way to my computer keys as well. Good thing I store all my designs elsewhere!

Speaking of designs, here is another sneek peek into my Fall 2008 line! How cute is my model Evie?!!!

Boutique Portraits!

I always hated the way my school pictures turned out. My hair never looked right, my shirt was looking a little off, I wasn't totally smiling...........I could go on and on. And yes, I will admit I have school pictures with the BIG bangs. Does that give away my age?! I worked on that "poof" for at least a half hour before leaving the house. I wonder if my husband has ever seen those pictures. Well, I'm guessing the answer is no since he is still married to me. LOL.

So, Bijou & Co. came up with a fool proof way to make sure your little sweetie has the perfect school picture. O-kay, maybe it won't actually be taken at school, but you can put it in her scrapbook and she will forever love you for capturing the perfect picture! In fact, she might even be willing to show it to her future husband!!

Click on this adorable artist portrait, created by Shelly of Half Pint Creations, to see the auction for our new Funky Zebra set. The winning bidder will win the set and a custom portrait of their little sweetie from Shelly!

And keep your eyes open for more Fall previews from Molly O Designs!
