Autumn Inspiration

28 09 2012

It feels a bit odd not to be designing for the next season.  No sample making, no photo shoot plan, no inspiration board, and no juggling act between designing and running a shop.  I’m a little lost at times.  But it helps to look at all the beautiful images for the autumn season.  At least I could still decorate my house and make dresses for myself.  It is one benefit of not having a shop.  I don’t have to please anyone else but myself.  Refreshing really…

Lovely images found via here.

Wishing you a brilliant weekend.

Cooking at home

29 06 2012

I have been making lots of food at home. Cooking is so meditative to me. Happy Friday everyone.








Please visit us today!

Please join us on Friday June 1st, 2012 at IDOM studio to help our dear friend Sally raise funding for the Leukemia and Lymphoma society.

The party starts at 5 pm and runs through 8 pm. There will be yummy baked goods and drinks.

IDOM will donate 20% of total sales to Sally’s charity.

Sally is one of my closest friends and truly a source of inspiration.

She has been training for an Olympic distance triathlon, which entails a 1500 meter swim, a 29-mile bike, and a 6.2 mile run.

“I’ve never participated in a marathon or anything of this caliber of athleticism. The answer to this is after closing Pin Me I felt like I was ready to take on a positive challenge and as some of you know I have been successful in the last couple years with a 50 pound weight loss, which I mostly did through diet. Next step was to combine exercise into the equation to get to my goal. Plus I wanted to do something that wasn’t just about me and having lost family members to cancer and seen colleges go through leukemia battles with their children I was inspired to combine my personal challenge with a fundraiser.”

Also there are new beauties from S/S 12 and lovely jewels.

IDOM will also be open on Saturday June 2nd, from noon until 6 pm.

Come by and say hello.
