A Name Change!


I have decided to close up the Shabby Chic Flower Boutique! I know that in itself isn't so exciting but what IS exciting is that I've not closed up shop, just that name! I've now become Karen Thompson Design Studio, or KTDS for short. I like this name because KTDS almost looks like "kids" and that's what 90% of my stuff is designed for- kids!

I am having a whole new image designed for me and that should be arriving in April so you will see the full transition happen then.

In the meantime... let's catch up on what I've been working on!! Next week is my last week teaching art for this school season. I'm so sad about it I could cry :( I've been working on writing a grant though so I can teach full time next year and bring some art back to these kids! Nothing makes me happier then children who are allowed and encouraged to express themselves from within.

The dress event ends tomorrow! Here is a shot of the very first pillowcase dress I made!!

Pretty darn cute! You can see the rest of the dresses at this flickr pool! There are to date over 167 items posted in there! I still have 5 more dresses to sew from fabric, and about 4 more pillowcases and won't make them all in for the contest. That's okay though! All that matters is that they make it to the girls who need help!

Also, something else fun! Remember when I blogged that I was making the quilt block for Sew Fresh Fabrics? Well the images of the quilt blocks together are up on their blog this morning and it's really awesome to see it!!! Here is a peek:

The dragonfly in front is my block!! Exciting!!
So, thats about it for now- I'm working on some purses and wallets, flowers and other little artsy stuff. The store in Etsy will re-open in April I think and we'll just keep plugging along!!

Have a wonderful week!!
