2013 Resolution: More Smiles, Less Ice Cream?
I don’t have any New Year’s Resolution, because I can’t decide. Yes, the list is endless –
purchasing one pair of shoes every 3 months (LOL)
less ice cream
more history channels
drinking more water
joining the gym again
walking the dog more often
adding smiles to my day
shopping less for big size clothes
thanking the universe daily
After writing my 2013 list, I think this is the same list I wrote last year. However, I realized that it is better to make a list than not. My resolution (s) is to just take it slow and at my pace. If I can accomplish just one of those for 200 days of the year then I have made a change.
Stephen, Your Designer
“There is an amazing feeling of artistic accomplishment when all the parts come together into one harmonious aesthetic. It's a connection with who you are and the elements you choose to express yourself visually. This is what making clothing is all about for me. It's like when a songwriter hears his first written notes from a voice or a baker who has practiced a recipe and nails it or a figure skater who exceeds her own expectations. I express my sense of art in clothing. I see things in color, shape and texture. I react to the touch of silk on my skin and my eyes are aware of how color combinations make me feel. My goal is to bring all of these intuitive notions to garments that are sized for larger women. If I can accomplish this then I have reached my goal.” – Stephen
