Our german Christmas

Our german Christmas

January 05, 2019

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  We had a lovely celebration, even though I desperately want to find a way to slow things down next year.  Any ideas, just let me know.

It seems like the holidays just creep up on us, and like a big wave....rolls right by us until it is all gone.  I just want to scream "Wait for me" most of the time.  So yes, I had a busy season, and before I knew it, it was all over.  I had planned on releasing a few more designs, take pictures.......but....well you know the rest of the story.  On top of everything, the entire family caught the flu bug - one after the other this year.  Bummer, but sometimes inevitable. 

I always dream up a ton of new designs, but am never sure how much I will get done.  This year was no different.   As usual, I have spent the days after the holidays playing catch up.  Taking pictures, updating the website, and putting away fabrics to make room for Spring and Summer.   Here is one dress that I finally photographed on Christmas Eve.....talk about late!

I literally finished my daughter's dress on the morning of Christmas Eve.  It is a gorgeous black fabric with a silver sparkly print.  I think the pictures reflect the glamour of this fabric pretty nicely.  I added a circular skirt, since my teenage daughter no longer likes ruffles or too much bulk.  I wanted the dress to reflect her age, and make her feel beautiful.  I think it worked.  She really liked the dress.

As I mentioned before, we celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve.  We are german, and this is part of our tradition.  The kids always ask a lot of questions about celebrating so early, but I love the fact that our Christmas is slow and full of beauty.  We take our time eating a nice german dinner, light up the candles, and then take family pictures.  Of course, I have not quite figured out how to slow the kids down while we unpack gifts, but I hope that will change one day too.

All of our german decorations are made out of wood, and are handmade from Germany.   I have bought several decorations in TJMAXX and through a german company  named Kaethe Wohlfahrt.  The pyramid is one of our favorite decorations, and my mom sends us a new angel for our orchestra each year.  We also hang wooden decorations on our tree, along with straw stars.  As the kids get older they ask me more and more questions about the traditions.  I hope one day I will be able to take them to Germany to experience the Christmas markets.  It really is a wonderful experience.

Next year, this will be one new dress you will find on our site. I may change a few details, but I wanted to blog about it, while wishing everyone a Happy Holiday!

Thank you for your continued support, and we hope to see you again in 2019!

Remember I told you that there will be two versions of this dress?  Here is my #2 idea.  A lot of color, and a 3/4 sleeve.  Cute, right?  Believe it or not, the decision making process or design process is the longest most painful process of sewing.  I pull all the fabrics from the shelves and come up with way too many ideas each and every time.  My family knows that when things get really bad, I tend to call them all into my studio for a vote...but in this case, I just decided to make more then one dress.

Happy New Year everyone!  I just finished updating the website, and adding our Easter and Spring styles.  Most of these dresses were available last year, which is why we only have limited quantities available.  New styles will be added in January 2019.
