A Little Something I've been Working On......

This is by far the most important project I've been working on this year!
Scott and I are expecting a baby girl in March.
It has definitely been a very different experience from my first pregnancy 13 years ago.
Yes my beautiful daughter Neve will be 13 in just over a month!
Morning sickness and fatigue have been a challenge but I feel pretty good now although we are heading into the hottest time of the year.
As you can imagine I will be taking things easy heading into 2011 but I will still be accepting orders through etsy so keep me in mind for your next big occasion.
I have some other exciting things happening too.
In February I will be collaborating with an amazing local artist in an exhibition, so stay tuned.

Kelly and Dan

Kelly was my very first etsy Bride!
She ordered her gown from me via my etsy store and over a few months I created her Monet gown.
Kelly sent me her measurements and a couple of full length photos and this is the stunning final product!
Congratulations Kelly and Dan.

Why I've been so quiet in Blogland.

You would probably have noticed how quiet I've been in Blogland over the last few weeks.

Well here is a sneak peak of what I've been up to.

Last Thursday was a culmination of about four months of hard work.

I have been working in the Bridal industry as a dressmaker for almost 10 years now.

For most of those 10 years I have been working for some of the best Bridal companies in Queensland and possibly Australia, including Kym Scott Couture, Wendy Makin and BiBowden Bridal Design.

This time last year I decided to start up working from home.

You could say circumstances forced my hand but ultimately I feel that Fate nudged me in the right direction at the right time.

With some word of mouth and a little advertising it wasn't long before I had a steady stream of lovely clients.

It was also at this time I discovered the fantasticness that is etsy and embarked on expressing my creativity in other forms of craft and happily made some money on the way.

Most importantly I discovered a new niche where I could not only express my creative side but also focus it on my love of beautiful handmade Wedding and Formal gowns.

And so this new venture has begun.

In the next few weeks I will be launching my new ready to wear Wedding, Formal and Evening wear collection on etsy!

Ever since the first time I created an evening gown for my Barbie Doll at age six I have dreamt about creating my own designs!

Now I have a workroom , a website, a blog and a facebook fan page.
And a Business doing what I love!

I belong to an amazing team of people {Brisstyle} who encourage and support you in your Handmade Journey.

I have more confidence in my abilities than ever before and I'm ready for the next chapter in this amazing Story that is Jennifers Gift.
Stay tuned for the Launch!
