Kitty, Kitty!

Just had to share this cute photo of the cat.  We just moved and her usual routine is out of whack.  Look where I found her!

That is a really tall bureau, by the way!  Wish we could jump that high..


Push Asheville Fashion

Big fashion show coming to town!  Push Productions is hosting a fashion show for local designers and boutiques on July 16th at the gorgeous Orange Peel in downtown Asheville.  I get to show 5 pieces, so I’m doing 3 womens and 2 girls looks.

here's a still of me in a promotional video, talking about a bamboo dress.

And here is the promotional video, featuring me and Hazel Anne Design! (Click on the link there, and it will take you to the you tube video – no matter what I try, I can’t make the video itself appear here).

It’s a funny thing to see yourself on film, there wasn’t really any prep time or practicing, so hopefully I make sense and make people want to come to the show!  It’s an interesting exercise to try to sum up your whole business in 5 minutes, certainly lots gets left out, but what do you think?  Do the main ideas get through?

pilates training

After a week of computer related problems and time at the computer doctor, I have my laptop back now, along with all of my recent photos.  The computer is on it’s last legs for sure, but I will try to eek out a few more months of hobbling along at sloooowww speeds and an if-y power cord.

In other news….

In case you didn’t know, one of my hats these days is pilates instructor in training, and it will be a summer full!  I am so insanely lucky to be doing all my training at Jennifer Gianni’s Fusion Pilates, have a look at her studio!

Not a bad place to hang out, huh?  I’ve been teaching a few times a week and will finish up my course work by the end of the summer.  Last weekend we had an incredible class and learned lots of advanced moves on the Reformer.  I took my first teacher training class last august, so all in all, it will have taken me about a year.  It is such a joy to keep learning and being a student and filling my brain with anatomy and movement – I just can’t get enough!  And then to be able to jump right in and teach in this amazing facility, well, I’m just too lucky.  I’ll keep updating here as I continue my path towards the final certification, and hopefully remember to bring my camera to the next training weekend in july to get some good action shots!

Busy, busy
