Crunch Time

Please allow me to take this one post to just wallow in this one thought:  Things on the Dottie Adele front are wonderful.

This afternoon, I'm off to do something incredibly exciting involving my clothing line.  It's a dream I didn't even realize I had until the opportunity presented itself.  I can't wait to share!

I've currently got no less than three different bridesmaid dress collections in the works.  I find doing these collections absolutely delightful, and I'm so excited to venture further into the wedding world.

On the flip side, these wonderful things also mean one more difficult thing to deal with:  more work.  Good work!  Great work!  Work I love!  But there are also only so many hours in a day.

From now until December 21st, when we leave for Christmas break (or the world will end, if you live by that ol' Mayan calendar theory), I have no less than 10 sewing projects to finish.  10 projects, 14 days.  (Did I mention I have a 9 to 5 job?  Oh, and that I would also like to attend all the Christmas parties coming up and get the presents wrapped and also enjoy the season?)

It is seriously crunch time around these parts.  But it's the best kind.  The kind of crunch time that means if you succeed, you're taking huge leaps towards achieving your dreams.  I can deal with that kind of crunch time.

The next two weeks I'm going to have to be functioning at my maximum efficiency, and I'm up for the challenge.  Come December 21st, after I succeed (see, thinking positively!), I'll get the best reward:  Christmas back in the heart of the Midwest with our nearest and dearest. 

Let's do this thing.


  1. You already know this. But I get asked about once a month where my bridesmaid dresses are from! You so good!

  2. Go, go, go! You can do it! Just make sure you still find time to smell the gingerbread and christmas trees :)

  3. You are so awesome Val and there is no doubt in my mind that you are going to succeed!!!! Good luck! :)

  4. Good luck! I hope that you stay energized and focused so you can work like a superstar and enjoy the holidays!
