Taking my pieces to the RUNWAY!: You are invited!

 

IMG_20170423_132909_821

No…….. I am not taking my pieces to Pearson airport … hahah. That would be dangerous now wouldn’t it.:)

Instead I have an amazing opportunity to showcase my summer pieces two months from to day in a arts and entertainment showcase highlighting local and underground talent in Toronto. Save that date if you are in Toronto: June 23rd, 7pm. Details below in the link.

Excited, nervous and driven. Possibilities, possibilities and more possibilities. But also fun and more fun. I have been planning since January end after my application was accepted. So now I am in sew mode and making those pieces and working with my amazing friends who are volunteering there time to be models on this special occasion.

My friends and family have been very supportive and have come along side me so far in many ways as I prepare for this event. Whether they are the show music director, volunteer models, back stage help, selling at my booth, fabric store runs, brainstorming ideas or just offering encouragement and support. They have been amazing, near and far!

As part of my participation in this event I am required to sell tickets via a guest list that will be created under my name as an artist. Tickets are $20. and can only be purchased online!

Here is the link if you are interested in supporting me in this event: Please ensure before you purchase that under selected artist is Amshinaapparel!

Thank you all in advance. I look forward to seeing you there as well as sharing the next two months of adventure sewing and preparations with you!

Stay tuned!

Taking the first few weeks in the new year to reflect on things, to build up myself spiritual in preparation for the journey ahead in 2017! There is no better time to rejuvenate and build yourself up spiritually than at the start of a new year.

Easy, Breezy, Beautiful August!

Oh my… its August already!

What have you done? What have I done?  What else do we need to get done before 2016 is over???

Breathe!!the year is not yet over, we have just crossed over to what is the winding down of summer and a new month. Which means, new beginnings! 🙂 🙂

The slow descend to wardrobe layering……- Easy, Breezy and Beautiful:

It so happens that I am starting out August with 5 gorgeous print Kimonos!! I repeat 5……. I know.. its amazing that in-between all my work in July I was able to work on a few more to add to my Kimono collection for sale. The remaining three will be added to my Etsy shop soon. But for now I think these are a fabulous way to dress this August! These are always in style!!! These were self drafted by yours truly, made with love and not forgetting some awesome prints!

Repeat: Try again?

image

It wasn’t long after I started tapping into my creative skills that I realized that those decisions I made in my sewing can also affect how I do life in general. Extremely happy when I accomplished something new or finished a piece as well as disappointment and self doubt when I am challenged by a project.

Scary!!!!! I know that sounds deep and pretty extreme right?

I mean what does ripping a project out has to do with making a budget, running a business,buying a new car or even planning a vacation getaway?

Alot! If you are passionate about what you do. The creativity is really an extension of who you are.  If you don’t get me think of when you stub your big toe….. ouchhhhhhh….. the shock waves you feel through your entire body is enough to let you know something is wrong. Choosing to finish or not finish that project that is challenging you can affect your next move.

My notion… the more situations that challenges me to be better that I give up on in my life will give me just about enough excuses I need to convince myself that quitting is okay.

Try again!

Trying again is very much acquainted with the person that will dare to believe, dare to go higher, dare to grow, dare to push pass the mess and see what the other end of reaching that goal or see the end results of  the final project.

Food for Thought as we start a new month of unlimited possibilities!! Happy May!

Just keep sewing… I intend to…. 🙂
