Being away..not my choice

Yes being away not my choice. I'm a person who can spend hours surfing on the net, specially blogging I can do it everyday but it's not in my hand. Most of you knows I'm a wife and a mom of two girls who aged between 4 and 1. Which means less time for myself; yes I do waking up early but still not enough, I need to check emails for orders, I need to design, go checking for new materials and checking tailors as well. Kids needs attention and activities to keep them busy and the biggest activity is there mom!! I love being around them, see them laughing and crying. Jana is almost 4 years and she want to do activities all the time or (her phrase) :mom let us go to the mall I don't want to play just lets go around and check new dresses!! how sweet right!. Maybe shes willing to be designer like her mom ;) . Yara who just turn 1 year this week, shes always busy I mean each second she never sits or rest always in a mission. If shes quite that means shes into something. The good news, I'm spending unforgettable times with them and the bad news, I cant think while they are around. Here come my decision; I'm taking break for almost 3 months to clear my mind and have regularly activities for my kids, regularly routine then I'm back in the track. But that doesn't consider me giving up (will never happen) I just need to clear my mind because my schedule is full (drawing, designing and sewing). New designs will be mention in quick posts at mid of the night ;) I'm sad that I'm going to leave my passion for a while but my family needs me and I have to respond to that call. Hope you all understand what I'm going through. Love ya all.

My attempt in drawing

Recently I start a new hobby you can say, when I start with it I feel I'm flying to other world; that's why I prefer doing it in quite time, well when my kids are sleep or out with their dad. I start drawing and painting in scarves (shailah), it's something fashionable these days and I wanted to do something different than the usual designs. I used different tutorials which gave me the motive to start. I start doing my logo and here we go.. teraraaaa

 I mixed between pearl color and deep sky blue color and that was the result. Those are the colors and brush I've been using:

recently I bought new acrylic fabric colors with new brushes for different styles and thickness. I even got more excited after that and drew this rose:

You can see I've add some crystals in vermilion (level of orange) and limegreen (level of green) color.. I was so happy and excited to get those results, you can check those tutorials where I found them very useful and easy, the only problem it's in Arabic *errrgh* but maybe you can understand the steps from images. Sorry about that:

Will leave you now with big smile on my face (I'm coming with lovely painted designs in colored scarves). I will be very happy to hear your opinion so be generous :-) Have a nice day.

New Orders

Wow I should be proud of myself today, two post at once :-) well not lucky everyday. In other hand, it seems I'm getting busy more and more everyday, thanks God!! Last week I had an order for scarves which suppose to take for stitching only four days, yes f o u r days; customer wanted to have it for wedding on Friday. It was order of two scarves, check the images:

This design took from my customer's dress, as she wanted to be the same. It contains of silver thread with green wool yarns in the center with sky blue crystals sprinkled in organized places.
Let's take closeup look:

The second design was a bunch of crystals sprinkled in nice and neat way. leave you with photos:

Crystals colors are pure black and white, black was in difrrent sizes but white I use few in large pieces just to break the darkness of the night ;-) I did the design in two sides.

Another closer look:

Hope you like them as much as I do. Wait soon for new update of our new collection, coming soon well hopefully before Eid  ^_^
