It’s going to be a year since my last post on the blog, I can believe it! I’ll tell you, it sure feels movies imitates life, specially my own. I had referred to Forrest Gump a few times in the past, and if you saw the movie you know how his life took him to so many different experiences. Well I feel that way sometimes!

At the end of last summer, my business was slow and I was “going’’ in a different direction; opening my store online and networking here in Miami, when I got a call from one of my clients, muse and dear friend Anastasya. She was working at a company doing loan [mortgage] modification and an opening was coming up and she gave my name.

Well, needless to say, that’s what I had being doing all this time. What kind I say, “a boy got it do what a boy got to do” I had bills to pay, and money to save.

Now, this is where the “God Decides” comes about. There I met two ladies that were also in fashion on one form or another. Jennifer makes beautiful jewelry out of semi-precious stones weaved on macramé. Her work is just amazing.

Jen and I have kept in touch although she left the company at the beginning of the year. She has being working on her jewelry, making more of them and evolving her style. The “free” time has allowed her to follow through with some connections and acquiring new ones. Through her, I got connected to some people, and we have something “on the back burner” [more to come, stay tone]

At this time I’m getting myself ready to jump back on the design “wave” [I forgot, I no longer work at that company, the company is no longer on operation, the loan modification business is almost dead… but that is a different story].

So, my dear friends and colleagues, I’m waiting on my order of beautiful printed silk chiffon, Charmeuse; and “delish” silks to get busy. I promise I’d be sharing the designs with you as I move alone.

I want to take a moment to thank my dear friends, Paco and his Sister Isabel we have being in contact all this time, their love, support and encouragement has no price.
Thank you Paco for the magazines!!

I’l be Back!!

Welcome back and congratulations on your decisions. The minute I read "mortgage" I though, O Lord, I hope he still has a job. But as my dear grandmother always said, "God works in mysterious ways."

You are so talented and I am sure hooking up with these other talented people will open many doors for you. Good luck and I look forward to following your always exquisite designs.
