    Handmade Holidays

    I can’t believe 2014 is already coming to an end!  I’ve been using the holiday season as a time to slow myself down and really take stock of everything.  It means I’ve been posting WAY less to School of Moxie, but I’m OK with that.  (You just wait until January… muahahaha!)  I’m thinking about all […]

#bpSewvember Round-up

November was a tough month for me where blogging is concerned.  Between daytime career demands and the approaching holidays, I found myself learning a LOT about my personal limits and what I really want to achieve in my sewing adventures.  There was one thing that kept me active, even if I wasn’t able to spend […]

In the Shop: Astrology Coasters

Dude.  I’m *finally* selling my own handmade stuff on Etsy!!  I’ve been playing around with the construction of these astrology coasters (12 in a set) and I’m pretty pleased with the first round.  I chose to turn out these coasters and top stitch the edges to help close the final seam.  Once this round sells […]

A Very Tired Moxie

Moxie peeps, I have three words for you… Entrepreneurship is hard.  I’ve been so torn lately:  sleep or red eye?  My day time career has been a lot.  Oh, my goodness, it has been a lot.  On the one hand, I’m proud that I’m good at what I do… on the other hand, I feel […]

Kwik Sew 2102 in progress

Spooktacular Country Style

Happy Halloween!  This is always one of my favorite holidays of the year.  Something about the costumes and dressing up and indulging in sweets hits all my soft spots in the right places. This year I decided to return to my Frugal Fabric Challenge roots and I committed to using only items I already had […]

School of Moxie sewing studio

Back in the Saddle

Not quite three months later… I’m sewing again! FINALLY!!!  I had a holiday from the library on Monday, so I used that bonus time to do some more organizing in my studio, work on business planning, and make my second pair of $3 lounging pants.  Yes, these only cost $3!  Booyah. It was a beautiful […]

School of Moxie unfinished sewing projects

My To-Do List

Now that my studio is freshly organized and I finally feel re-settled… it is time to assess what I did not finish making before I moved out of apartment life and into permanent home life.  Can I just say, I *love* saying “my house”!  It’s going to take a while before that gets old. Here’s […]

School of Moxie sewing studio

Sewing Studio Progress

Did you catch my sneak peeks on Instagram over the weekend?  I got my new studio into fully functioning order!  Woohoo!!  I don’t know who I was trying to kid a few weeks ago, but there was no friggin’ way I was going to make anything productively with my space so disorganized.  Waiting for my […]

School of Moxie new cutting table

Slow Progress

Slowly, but surely, my studio is coming together!  I sorted through all of my half-finished projects this weekend and found I definitely have my work cut out for me.  I sorted through fabric and am thoroughly reminded of my old Frugal Fabric Challenge.  I also finally got my new cutting table assembled and it’s so […]
