..oribello begins..

On February 2, 2009, I was called into a staff meeting and an announcement was made. Macy's is going through a restructure and all of our jobs are going to be eliminated. Everyone, including myself was shocked to hear the news. We were told we have to work till the end of April, which oddly enough is the end of my 3 month lease for my SF place I just moved into a week earlier! Although I wasn't filled with excitement at the news, I knew this was a blessing in disguise and even though one door is closing, it seems clear which other door to open... my crafty designs are now coming to life and they are going to be my new career focus!

And if that wasn't enough to start with, I'm also going to be sewing my heart out while traveling across the U.S. for 4 months with my boyfriend Tim and our little terrier mix puppy Ruka! We're currently still looking for our mode of transportation and mapping out our destinations. We hopefully will be ready to bon voyage mid May.

I'm super excited about this big change in my life. I'll have more time to focus on what I love to do, which is to get CRAFTY. I love to sew and create things, but beyond that, my lifelong goal is to open my own business and conceptualize to actualize every element of it.

I hope you all enjoy my creations!


  1. Good luck to you! Your positive outlook will take you far and serve you well. It's great that you took as an opportunity to do what you love. Your designs are beautiful and I wish you well!

    Have a great weekend!

  2. It was nice to meet you and to discover your world. You're on a good trail, don't leave it and have fun. I wish you all the best all along your long life. Vivi.
