Ooo, scandalous! Maybe too scandalous-sounding. Hmmm.
But, nothing fishy's happening -- just a behind-the-scenes peek at yesterday's Trash Ties photoshoot. Yes, I still need to tell you all about my hair accessory invention. I won't forget. I'm launching them at CosmoProf in two months and I'll do a tell-all post or three. The plan is to put together a Trash Ties website with tons of photos and videos to explain them fully.
True, there's not much hair-accessorizing to see in these photos. That was on purpose : ) I don't want you to know what Trash Ties can do until I've nailed down the manufacturing. (Cuz once you see them in action, you're going to go NUTS. And I can't handle that just yet. July, hopefully.) Do any of you have amazing manufacturing contacts - US, Mexico, anywhere? We have a couple of manufacturing guys sourcing things, but boy is it a slow process. Yawn.
Isaac took a beautiful photo for a full-page ad in the CosmoProf guidebook. And, the wrapped ribbon comes across perfectly friendly-like in the finished shot. Think conceptually -- getting caught up in Trash Ties. It's more of a tangle. I'll show you the final picture this summer -- it's powerful and dramatic.
I know, I keep doing that. Teasing. It's not on purpose. I just want to post about what' s going on. At some point, the dam will break and there'll be a deluge of new fabrics, sewing patterns, hair accessories and more.
And about that video clip...
I don't have a specific book in the works. Patterns first. The book thing is just on my list for the coming year.
