Make a point of starting something that you've been dreaming of, but haven't gotten around to yet. There's really no better time than now. (From kambriel)

I'm working on this; I've created an etsy shop (currently empty, but hope to have items up next week) and I'm working on new pieces for a fashion show on 8/15. Thus far I have bottoms done for three models, with at least two more models planned, and I need to make tops and accessories. The theme is black-light and light up designs, and the event is being held at Redondo Beach Arts Center; more details as I get them.
