Trim Tramp, Fabric Floozy, Button Bimbo

This week, I have been working on my book for Kansas City Star. I have done a lot- but there's still so much left to do! I am trying to get myself organized- seems there are things just scattered all over the studio and I have to get myself straightened out.  I'm excited- I think it's going to be really cute (of course, that's just my opinion). I am doing a lot of illustrations for it  (I do love to paint). A little sneak peak at some stuff I've done this week:
Oh I have one more thing to show you from Market. A vendor there had spool upon spool of vintage and antique trims, laces and ribbons. I kind of went crazy. I found myself in the booth, singing (literally, really, I was singing) that song sung by Ado Annie in "Oklahoma": I'm just a girl who can't say No, I'm in a terrible fix, I always say c'mon let's go, just when I oughtta say nix! And it occurred to me that maybe I should have a Tshirt printed up that says: Trim Tramp, Fabric Floozy, Button Bimbo.  This is what well over $100 worth of vintage trim and antique buttons looks like:
How much over $100? Well I'm not telling, so stop asking.


  1. Hi Jacquelynne.

    Keep blogging! You inspire me.

  2. . . . & to think, I got to watch you go crazy with the trims & buttons. . . Susan does have amazing things - doesn't she!?!
    xo, Bren

  3. Oh giiiiiirl!
    I love the illustrations!
    AND you know how to shop! By the way over a hundred can be anything-Like a thousand, millions etc etc!

    Have a great weekend...
    WE have been seriously busy getting ready for major company next week!

  4. I'm not sure that I should tell you that I would gladly send you some of my vintage trims....for free. :-) But then again it's much more fun to shop!
