On Your Mark, Get Set...

In the month since my last post, SO MANY things have been happening here.  Although my Facebook is the best way to keep up with me, currently, I realize that I need to up the ante and post here more regularly.  One way I'm going to make that happen is by doing on this blog what I did last year on The Modest Peacock: the A-Z Blogging Challenge!!!

If you haven't heard of or done the A-Z in April, follow this link and check it out!  It's amazing fun!  And just to give you a little bit of scope: I signed The Modest Peacock up early on the official sign-up day and I was blog #383 to join.  I took a lot of time to decide whether I could even do the challenge on more than one blog (It takes up a little bit of time and effort to create a themed post every day of a month, not going to lie), but today I decided that I absolutely can.  So I've just today signed up Lucy Jane's Writing Desk to participate and it is blog #748 on the list.  Wow!  That's a lot of blogs!!!

I didn't sign up until I wrote out a rough draft list of possible post titles that have to do with all things Lucy Jane: sewing (mostly costuming), tea, etc.  When I reached the half way mark, I knew we were good to go.

There are still some things that are having the kinks worked out.  Business license questions, next years taxes (yaaay, fun! :P), travel logistics for taking the show on the road, and other such things.  But there is currently a stack of fabric around 2 feet high being gone through and pattern pieces cut out.  I'm completing concept boards for at least 6 costume designs that have been making laps in my head (it's wearing me out, honestly), and I have the fabric selected for my new Regency Dress to wear to the 5th Annual Penny McHenry Hydrangea Festival that is coming up fast.  Whew!  It's amazing the momentum that builds when creative people get on a roll! ;)

I have plans later in this coming week to catch up with some photos here, so be on the lookout for that.
I hope you all have a lovely day, and I will post again soon!
