how was your weekend? mine was a little all over the place. a little sick, a little sad, a little photo shoot, a little dancing.

oh, and it ended with the police banging on my door at 1am to inform me that someone had just tried to break in my house. the person did not take anything and no one was hurt, it was just disturbing to say the least. they opened my kitchen window and removed my dish rack and put it outside on the ground. so weird. i mean, obviously they did that so they could climb in the window and not knock it over, but it just seems so much more difficult (it's one of those folding bamboo ones and it was full of dishes) to actually get it through the window if you ask me. so weird. luckily i live on a block where no one ever minds their own business so my neighbor called the police and they scared him before he was able to do any damage. they also caught him, which makes me feel just a bit safer. i had to go down to the station so a detective could interview me, which sadly lasted until 5am, so i feel a little like a zombie. it could have been much worse, but still shook me up a bit.

on the bright side, i finished up a new batch of shoulder bags and saturday morning we went to FDR park to photograph them. i posted preview photos on my flickr page, and the official shop update will be at 7pm EST this evening.

this newest batch are in beautiful shades of purples, lavenders, plums, etc. there are thirteen of them-- four small sized and nine large. there will also be a handful more of the zipper purses in similar shades.

GORGEOUS!! You are soo talented. About that break in, SCARY!! That is good though that they caught him. I don't understand criminals wanting to do that to innocent people. Glad you are safe.
