Slip To My Lou

Here is one of the chairs I had slipcovered for Miss Jackie...I had a whoopsie with one of them...I found a small rip in the piping on the day I was suppose to deliver them...:( I don't know how it happened, but it did...It was probably fixable, but I had to make sure it was perfect for Jackie and her beautiful family...I am not one to take chances or throw something together...It has my name on it...And I have too much pride to not make it right! So I took it a part and started over...:)

I called Jackie to let her know what had happened and that I would deliver the settee and one of the chairs and deliver the other one later in the week...She kindly said not to make two trips...So, I am a busy little beaver...slipcovers, model home, and design consults...I love it!!! :) lol I am in my zone and feel sooo alive there!

Yesterday, I met with a new client, Christian, she was a delight! And her kiddos were sooo adorable! I wanted to take the baby home with me to add to my collection of kiddos and doggos ;)...I have a tendency to do that...lol I love babies! They make me laugh and bring me back to when my boys were young {bittersweet}...I spent two hours with her going over her blue prints and color choices...It was soo fun to help her dove in and get the "BIG" picture of how it will look and give her new ideas and suggestions to add to her already wonderful ideas...By the time I was done, you could see the confidence on her face...That is what makes my job so wonderful...Her home is going to be sooo beautiful! She has such great taste! I can't wait to see it complete!





Did anyone see Oprah yesterday? It was about dream jobs...I cried when Buddy from Cake Boss started crying about how proud his Dad would be...I completely got how he felt and know my Momma and my Grandfather {Papa} would be SOOO proud of my accomplishments! Yes, I am doing my dream job! I have to pinch myself and make sure I am alive...:) Yep, I am! lol


I am off to work on slipcover orders and take care of Bella, the chihuahua...She had her teeth cleaned yesterday and had a little scare...Her heart rate went low during the surgery (well, they put them asleep while they clean their pearlies)...and she had a reaction to the vaccinations she got...I was up with her all night...:( I was scared out of my mind...She is my baby...:) She is doing well this morning, but very drowsy from the allergy meds I gave her...

I wished you lived closer to me because I'm wanting slipcovers for my living room sooooooo badly and no one around here does them, sugar!!!! I have to get one from Ikea, which isn't exactly my first choice but it's close.

That slipcover is fabulous! Love the thick piping and the ruffles. I wish I had more time to sew, I've made a few slipcovers but I have more chairs to dress than I have time for.
