Wow! At one point last Saturday night, I looked around and became so overwhelmed by all the love and support that filled the studio for the Book Launch party. I was amazed and touched by how far many of you came to be there. Friends and family came from Portland, Walla Walla, Boise, Bend, Baker City, LaGrande and even California. I am one lucky girl!!!
This morning I’m getting ready to go to Conner’s very special 2nd Birthday Party, but before I go, I thought you might enjoy a few pre-Book Launch photos.
My adopted sister Susan made this beautiful stained glass for the studio.
Of course, only my friend Linda would happen to have a string of thread spool lights.
The waiters getting psyched. They were a big hit. I mean really, how many parties do you get to have dressed up high school football players serving you hors d’oeuvres throughout the night.
I’m pretty sure they probably sampled a few treats.
Heather’s amazing chalkboard writing!
The handsome bartenders getting tutored by the drink designer before the party. 🙂
The Bodice Ripper was a big seller.
More during the party pictures coming….
For refashion inspiration:
Good for you, isn’t it wonderful to get paid for something that you would do free any day of the week? CONGRATULATIONS!!
Thanks, Trenie! I DO have so much fun with ALL of this! Have a wonderful week!
Great pictures, Beth! I love the painted antler and want to try that too. The other decorations are awesome as well. I can’t wait to see the next group of party photos 🙂
Hi Mother Deer! My friend Keith Baker, who is an artist and a children’s book author and illustrator, came to the studio and we painted antlers together. You can see his site here: http://www.keithbakerbooks.com/
WOW! So very happy for you! It looks like it was a huge success. I love how you kept it personal and not way over the top. Totally enjoying my copy of your awesome book. Thanks again so much and Congratulations!! Well deserved.
Thanks so much! We had a great time. I just wish all of my amazing subscribers could have come to celebrate with us! It would’ve been fun to meet everyone in person!

Hi Niecy, I wish you could’ve been there, too!

Thanks so much, Kathleen!
That looks like it was wonderful fun. Congratulations to you. I can’t wait to see your book!
It WAS fun! I just wish you could’ve been there, too!
One of the coolest most innovative books and blog I’ve seen in a long while. This is an idea I’ve had for awhile but I lack the insight that you have so your ideas will help to get me started. I particularly love the purple t-shirt you too and turned it into a modern fun t-shirt. And think of all the possibilities from men’s clothing! Thrift shop here I come! Best wishes, I’m sure your book will be a huge hit! Kathie Brownlee ItsSewNice Date: Sat, 11 Oct 2014 15:17:21 +0000 To: email@example.com
Awwwwwwwww……thank you so much, Kathie for you kind words of encouragement this morning! You made my day! I hope you have as much fun refashioning as I do!
What fun! Wish I didn’t live on the other side of the country 😉
I wish we lived closer together, too, Sarah! We could have some great sewing parties!!! 🙂
Thanks so much Amanda!
I love all the photos. It looks like you had a wonderful time. I wish I could have been there! This is such an exciting time.
I wish you could’ve been with us, too, Trudy! I would LOVE to meet in person some day!
Was in actual fact shopping for just an average shower enclosures when I discovered this site, did not even know there was any such
thing as a ‘steam shower enclosure’, wow, may very
well just may have to buy one
Congratulations of on all your success. Love all the great photo shots from the party…
Thanks so much Jeanna! I just got some more party pictures tonight to go through. I can’t wait to see them.
