Passionate for Fabrics

 I'm planning to reveal new looks with Lifestyle Collections on June 1st. 
A very tiny peek at some lovely things in the making!

Oh how I adore flowers so much!
I want to live my life with things I am passionate about just for the simple joy of it! 
What are you passionate about?

It's just Wednesday

Today I had a wonderful day despite the usual Executive Mom details(one of those typical and uneventful days). 
Taking time to enjoy the small things in the midst of the craziness...
 Letting love in and especially the unexpected love in...
Noticing the things I often breeze over...
 It's just Wednesday.
Nothing special until I looked for what is SPECIAL.
 How was your day?
