    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 […]

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 […]

Open For Business

I’m open for business!  It’s a soft launch today… just clearing out surplus patterns from my pattern library to start.  But I figured out how to set up my listings and now you can peruse my items for sale!  Woohoo! http://www.etsy.com/shop/schoolofmoxie You can expect to see a lot more product pop up on here as […]

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 […]

Kidnapped by deer!

I only have deer pictures to share with all of you… I’m still getting back into making new clothes in my permanent studio (also busy choosing new, quality furniture for it) and recovering from a carpal tunnel flare up.  Apparently I needed to rest more than I realized.  In the meantime, I thought you might […]

School of Moxie moves house

Settling Down

I have moved!  OMG, I bought a house!!  <– That thought *still* runs through my head, pretty much all the time.  While most peeps were enjoying Labor Day BBQs, I was finishing my move with my movers and unpacked more than half my house.  I lost almost five pounds from lifting and shifting stuff for […]

Pause

One more week of craziness… I can do this!  Mr. Giles and I are inching closer to finalizing our move into the new Moxie HQ.  It’s exciting to see how everything is coming together, but definitely tiring.  A certain pair of furry pants thinks it’s just another excuse for a nap. I mean, really.  Look […]

School of Moxie HQ

What Lies Beneath

Beneath my feet is the floor… turns out it’s, like, SUPER important to me.  I knew when I bought my house that I wanted to rip out every last bit of carpet and initially I thought I would get some laminate or engineered wood flooring installed.  Fast forward to the quote presented by a major […]

One more thing...

Beginner Addendum

I knew I would forget something for Kellie’s posts.  I knew it!!  Good thing it’s my blog and I can post whenever I want (ha!). Books. The day that I posted the beginner resources, my new (signed! squee!) copy of Tilly Walnes’ book arrived direct from the U.K. Now that I have been able to […]
