I know, I know.

I know, I know.
I've been suspiciously absent from the blog recently. It's not because I haven't been busy. I have been very busy with one time consuing task... and another you've seen already. give me a few more days, and there will be much to share!
the most time consuming project right now has been the easter dress. Oh, how i love it. I am so excited about it! I had it 99% done. Everything but a nice easy straight hem. Then I decided I didn't like how the bodice fit... and may or may not have torn it apart with intention of correcting the problem, and not a whole lot of skill or ambition to carry through with that intention at this point. I know. I KNOW.
I have a lot of time and money invested in it at this point. So I am not giving up... I am just pouting while I wait for inspiration to hit. And I hope it hits soon, becuase you may or may not be aware that the day... THE DAY is little more than a week away. I hope to complete the garment by next Friday... so I have the weekend to celebrate with my family without worrying about my dress for THE DAY.
But right now I am pouting and the dress is in pieces. So there you go.
But look at this lovely buckle got on Etsy for it:
Do you love it? I love it. I know, I know... a buckle does not a completed dress make. But we're getting there. More to come!

Did I find the prettiest pair of shoes in the most lovely blush shade to go with my easter dress???
Did I get super ridiculously excited and fall in love immediately and plant in my brain that no other shoe would ever be as lovely or as perfect for this particular dress on this particular occasion?
YES! I did!
When I clicked the link, did they have said perfect shoe in my perfect size?
NO! They did not!
Oh, the horrors! Tradgedy and travesty has befallen my perfect plan! The universe has turned on me. My life unfair and unhappy. I cried. I wailed and moaned. I lamented my terrible fate quite publicly. Nothing would ever be the same again, I told my bff. Did she feel horrible about the situation?
Of course, She did!
Did she immediately right all that is wrong in the world and locate the same pair of shoes on another website, in the correct size, for about fifteen dollars less and free shipping?
Oh, happy day! The sun shall shine again and brighter than it has ever before shone! Choirs of angels shall dance and sing and my feet will be shod with loveliness come Easter Sunday! Hooray!
