Exciting News!

Several of you may already know if you were on Twitter last night, but the rest of you may not, so I thought I'd share.  Jeremy Larson is putting on an amazing show next weekend (like you didn't already know), and I get to be a little part of it.  Stacy Dupree (Eisley) will be opening for him, and you will find me hanging out there in the background, squeezing my accordion.  I'm very excited.

I'll be practicing most days until the show arrives, just to make sure I'm flawless.  Here are a few shots from practice today.  I have to run the track through a soundsystem to get it loud enough to hear over the accordion.  My other option is to blare the track on my iPod in my tiny house, and that doesn't really please anyone.  ;)


That last shot is me trying to capture the top part of my new ModCloth dress, but the seatbelt didn't really help me out there.  I love the tiny red buttons.  They are so pretty!  In other (SAD) news, I got another dress from there, and of course it doesn't fit because I'm terrible about knowing my size right now.  It was a Final Sale item, and they are not budging on that (no matter how much I beg).  If any of you want to snag it from me, I'll sell it to you for what I have in it.  It's this one:


It's so pretty, but no one wants to see me walking around in a dress that I can't zip all the way.  That would be MOST unflattering.  ;)  Have a great weekend, friends!  I'm off to stitch up some new stuff for a tiny update on Monday!  xoxo Katie

  15. I order from ModCloth all the time and sadly, their sizes are NEVER right! However if the dress is close to closing you might try some Spanks underneath. That normally does the trick for me to smooth things out so that zipper will slide right up! No sense in getting rid of a perfectly cute dress! ;) I am in the same boat with the final sale issue. I bought the pink with black lace bottom dress and have it hanging as inspiration to lose those final 3 pounds!

  36. You are too productive! You're like, "yeah, I just had a baby like five minutes ago, now I'm playing a show (obvoiusly still have time to practise!), making deer heads on chalk boards for my successful Etsy shop..." I agree with the above: you really are an inspiration :)
