Updates All Around!

November 28, 2011 08:23 by ehouston

I cannot believe how quickly this month went by.  Not only because I am not as far along in getting my Christmas shopping accomplished as I had hoped, but because I had so many project plans for this past month that I never had a chance to start.  I was hoping to put together a post about the trays I decided to make for the family room.  And, then there was the self-imposed Pinterest Challenge- what was I thinking?  I actually have most of the materials I need for that one- I just need the time to do it.  It seems like this month has been spent doing a lot of sewing and then, of course, lot’s of cooking!  I guess I can show you what I ended up with after completing a couple of those sewing projects.

As you all have seen before in my family room side table switcheroo, we had some very sad looking pillows.  I won’t even call them accent pillows because they were used without abandon for naps, fort building, smack down fights, as well as, cushioning during long movies.

The bolsters, especially, had seen better days.  So, I created some new pillows to grace our soft, old, perfectly worn-in sofa.

Nothing miraculous, but it sure is nice to have more of a good thing!  Especially pillows in extra cuddly chenille.  For all the details please head over to Chic Tweaks.  Envelop pillow info, here and bolster pillow info, here.

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend!

New Blog : Chic Tweaks Alterations

July 13, 2011 00:58 by ehouston

Announcement: I have started another blog and it’s called, Chic Tweaks Alterations.  What was I thinking?  Well, I was thinking I needed some way to help promote my local alterations business and work.  What better way than to put up a blog and show everyone what I am up to…and capable of?  It’s still a work in progress, but it’s coming along.  If you are in the Richmond, VA area (especially the Robious Corridor) and you need some wardrobe help, please click on over and check it out.  I would love to help you Repair Rather Than Replace!  Couldn’t we all use a wardrobe revamp right now?  But, who has the money in this economy to make all the necessary updates?  I say, just tweak it!  You will get more miles for less money.

Advertisement over, back to the basics.  I also want to let you all know that I will be transitioning most of my sewing and sewing related crafts over to this new site.  I have added a Page for Chic Tweaks, that you can see it over on the left hand side of your screen, for a quick link over.  In the future I plan to add lists with links back to the featured sewing projects.  I know what you are thinking now.  What on Earth are you going to talk about over here?  Kitsch Designs will continue to have DIY, Decorating and other craft projects, along with updates on my shops and my life in general.  And, of course gratuitous shots of the Little Guy. 

I hope you will continue to support my efforts with your wonderful insight, comments and emails.  That’s what this whole blogging thing is about, right?  Hearing from my readers.  So, please keep coming!

In the words of Bartles and James (yeah, I’m old), I’d like to thank you for your support!

PS- What have you guys been up to this summer?  I’m noticing some neglected blogs out there, so I have to think you all are doing some fun stuff!  Do tell!
