One Post at a Time

Lets be honest... I've started a blog on January 1st every year for the past 5 years... SO... Lets take this One Post at a Time!  My name is Meggie and I have been a habitual blog failure for many years.  My friend Sheena is also quite the blog failure extraordinaire.  Together we form the worst blog failing duo you've ever seen, HOWEVER, 2015 is a new year with new aspirations! Blogging 101 HERE WE COME!  We will either succeed or fail... but at least we will do it together!

Left to Right:  Sheena, Clark, Meggie

That's me (Meggie) in the blue!  That little nugget you see between us is Clark (aka Clarkita), daughter of Sheena and her husband Jay :).  We all live in the great city of Austin, TX and love life in the ATX!!  Jay, Sheena, Clark (and baby#2 on the way) consider me part of their family but I do have my own place and live with my cat (Karen)!

A little about me, I am a freelance apparel designer and have worked all over the country for many companies both small and large!  I design everything from Men's and Women's ready-to-wear, to Men's and Women's activewear and fight gloves gloves!    

Sheena and I will both be posting through my website to give us a better user interface!  We will be blogging about crafting, DIY, beauty, people, places, photos, cooking, baking, and LIFE.  Our goal through this process is to reach 1,000 followers in a year and to reverse our positioning as blogging failures to blogging GURUS!  Happy 2015... and HERE WE GO! 

 

 

Austin, Texas HERE I COME!

After years of moving around the country for my job, I have finally decided to take a leap of faith and make the move I've been wanting to make since my sophomore year of college.  Austin, Texas HERE I COME!  I have no solid job laid down yet and am moving only on a hope and a prayer, but I know this is the right move for me!  Something about finally doing something for myself rather than specifically for my job feels so freeing and I feel like i have about 800,000 tons of bricks lifted off my shoulders.  I may have to live the life of a college student again for a while until I lay down my roots, but nothing has ever looked more appealing.  I am excited to be in a city that is socially minded and has not only the city to offer, but more outdoors adventure than you can shake a stick at!  I am so excited and can't wait to begin my new journey... life in Austin. :)

Cake Bake

Any of you who know me personally know that I LOVE to bake.  One thing that has been missing significantly from my life since taking on a full time design job is BAKING.  When I was freelancing full time, I would take time out every week to test out baking one new creation and force it upon my friends and clients so I wouldn't wind up with my baked creation sitting on my counter screaming EAT ME every time I walked by.  Working out of your home studio, this always poses as a huge threat to ones figure.  Today I urge you to try baking and icing this cake.  It is by far my most favorite cake to ice, eat, and look at!  This recipe comes to you curtosey of Sweetapolita.  Check out her website and blog.  She is my fav!  She is also coming out with a cookbook soon and you better believe I will be first in line to purchase it!  I guarantee you will not be disappointed!  www.sweetapolita.com

Sweet Summertime

Summertime is finally approaching and I am experiencing some SERIOUS wanderlust.  I'm ready for some camping and outdoors adventure outside of my windowless office.  Is it just me or do these tents make you want to attempt painting/constructing one of your own?
