Once upon a time I made things for Christmas. Lots of things, pretty things, white things and pink things. I designed things and had them made by several different seamstresses. I sewed things and painted things.

I started hand painting clothing and although obviously this non digital photo is nothing short of faded beyond faded, you can sort of see her little cotton dress. Not the best of the work, but I don't have a lot of pictures to share. I started a VERY successful clothing line called Pour It On Productions and did it all myself...from a little studio beside our home and was pulling in about $1K a week selling to stores and doing shows.
