What a super year it’s been! In March we had a great time at the Bridgetown Fashion Revue show.
Next, the highlight of our Summer was vending at JamBallah NW. Oh, we had a blast! There was no shortage of interesting stuff going on at this festival and we heartily recommend your attendance at the next one!
We finished out December with an Artists’ Trunk Show at SomaSpace followed by Shimmer! The Nagamani Winter hafla featuring the music of Ritim Egzotik. It was the perfect event for an icy cold evening, with a bevy of sparkly performers and sizzling Arabic and Turkish tunes.
It’s very exciting how quickly 2012 is filling up. Yay for abundance! One event that we will be here before we know it is the Cues & Tattoos festival. It’s happening in late March and will we see you there? We sincerely hope so!
Happy New Year to you and yours.
My, what a wonderful night! On March 26, 2011 Bridgetown Fashion Revue debuted at the Alberta Rose Theatre. We had a great time. It was an honor being a part of this fantastic show.

Whew. I’m tired but happy. It’s been a busy, exciting and productive month in SCC land. There are piles of patterns and fabrics on every surface in the studio, with tax documents also commanding attention from their prime spot on my desk. Recently, my models for Bridgetown Fashion Revue came over for a fitting. I think we all had an enjoyable time amidst playful cats attempting to steal the measuring tape.
And hey, guess what! While we’re on the subject of the BFR show, Brandy of Vauntville will be making some special pretties for our show. If you haven’t seen any of Brandy’s gorgeous creations yet, make haste and follow the link. Welcome to the team, Brandy!
So, even though life and business couldn’t be more chock-full of awesomeness, oftentimes I am feeling a little starved for well, belly dance. Working 12 hour days as a one woman operation, I find it incredibly challenging to make it to a dance class or performance. In honor of all workaholics out there, I thought I would share a couple of sources for staying connected (and entertained) while plugging away at your dreams.
