Tis the season my red nosed friends!!
Now I will be the first to admit that, for some odd reason, I was not at all excited for christmas this year. This could be some lingering unhappiness attached to last christmas when it ended. I often find the day after christmas, or perhaps the day after new years, to be THE most depressing day of the entire year, and for some reason last year especially bad and I was still feeling jilted.
However I think the magic of the season ( because folks I truly believe that there is magic to this) overtook me. I am now one of the frantic shoppers eyeing what the other person has in their cart in case it's a suitable gift idea for someone I know.
Of course it has taken some time for this to kick in on part of .... exams..
Urghh it seems like they are a necessity but it also seems ever so cruel to put ourselves through this huge amount of stress before "the happiest time of the year". Or maybe that's the whole idea, I dunno. What I do know is that I think I appreciate it a million times more this year because it truly is a break for me. Also this is the first year where I don't live at home so going home actually kind of seems like a treat to me.
As per usual the first half of this post has nothing to do with clothing.. ha ha.. moving along then
What is new with us you might be wondering?
I would love to tell you but then I might have to kill you. Kidding of course but we have a big project in the works at the moment that most certainly deserves some build up before the announcement. Here are some hints: clothing, guitars, pins
Ohhh the mystery!
Work on spring 09 will be commencing shortly.. as in whenever I can kick my lazy bum into gear and actually do something productive clothing wise. The most painful thing was that I got the biggest surge of creative inspiration on monday but I had to deny it because of studying for economics....grrrr... that's one more reason why I hate economics.
So because I'm in the mood for giving I gave you a sneak peak at our latest photoshoot, which was as kirstin stated FANTASTIC and we love everyone we worked with. Feel free to let us know what you think!
Happy Holidays all and get as fat as you like, who really cares?
