First Show!

This past Tuesday I had the exciting experience of my first show! I was a nervous wreck by the time the doors opened, but I survived! It was a success for me as well as for the wonderful charity Michael House. It felt good to be out there, standing behind my table, enjoying the fashion show while supporting a worthy cause.

My sister Wendy ((((hug))), helped me as she has had a lot of show experience with her and hubby’s creations . Thank you Wendy!!!

Funky Shape!!

 After photographing my latest creations, the word that continued to pop into my head was “whimsical”.   Here  is the dictionary definition of whimsical>>
whim·si·cal [ wímzik’l, hwímzik’l ]

1. fanciful: imaginative and impulsive
2. amusing: slightly odd or playfully humorous, especially in an endearing way
3. erratic or unpredictable: behaving in a way that is impossible to predict

I think the word fits!!!!

What do you think???

Watch for my upcoming Mother’s Day sale!!!

The Day is here!!

Thornbushdesigns is a reality!!! An idea that burst into my brain in January is coming together! I am excited, nervous, a little loopy even….. This is something I have dreamed of doing all my life in some way or another and now with the help of the internet it is possible!

Thanks John and Emily for all your help!!!

My sweet hubby needs my thanks as well…. he has been so supportive, and has convinced me that even if I never sell a thing it is still sooo worth doing what you dream of.

Earrings and Yurting

Been a busy few weeks for me!!! Been under the weather and then on holiday! While many peeps would choose a tropical hot spot for a vacation, we settled on winter

camping!!! It was one of the things on my bucket list and I enjoyed it sooo much. It helped that the weather was superb! We stayed in a yurt and did lots of xcountry skiing and wine tasting!

I have been playing around with earring ideas and this is what I have come up with so far! I will def be making more styles!

This is where we stayed!! Awesome!
