Here's a true find. Who starts their own shoe company? Amazing.
These polkadotties are all Carrie Miner's doing. They're called Puddle Jumpers. Carrie is a single mom of two adopted daughters from China. She runs her shoe business out of Utah and has an incredible story. We spoke on the phone a few weeks back and I was so impressed. If your daughter/niece/ grandaughter isn't sporting polkadot mary janes yet, then it's about time, don't you think? Wow.
And Adorn. Boy am I late on this one. You guys have been telling me for weeks to go check out the Summer 07 issue of Adorn for a happy Freshcut™ surprise. You were right. They did an article where four designers interpretted the same bag pattern, all using my fabrics. And look, designer No. 4 was none other than the fabulous Ms. Congdon. Lisa, is this the project you emailed me about a while back? Wow, so look at all those fabrics there and I didn't even do the sewing. Yes, this issue's still on newstands -- great magazine, by the way.
