What makes what you create special is you, your mark , your style, what you love. No magic recipe and secret ingredient, it’s you. But the problem ? you are just getting started at your creative juices flowing and you need some inspiration. You have this idea and you are ready to tackle it but you hit a roadblock or two. I am not going to lie, I used to be hurt when someone else wanted to make what I made , exactly like it….. fast forward a few years and I am totally flattered. In fact I give you permission to copy me!!!! Shut the front door, I said copy it!!!! 🙂 Thats right I don’t mean copy it in a steal my pictures and use copyrighted things. I mean if a certain clothing design or fabric or paint color inspires you , use it as your jumping point, yours will turn out different in the end, resulting in your own style. So find what inspires you then try to “recreate” it. I started creating in a pre pinterest era, before blogs, tutorials and youtube resulting in many trials. So search the blogs, pinterest and magazines. Find what inspires you , what look you want , what you want to recreate in your own way. And then watch out those creative juices start to flow, once that happens don’t let your husbands send me hate mail (lol) 😉
My top “copied” outfit design from pink lemonade
I cannot count how many emails I got about my limited pink lemonade summer set and I was flattered fellow seamstresses were inspired to create on like it , with their own twist. Photo credit is courtesy of Teri ; Hopefully someday soon she will have her own photography page so I can link you all 😉
At some point though you need to stop looking at what’s hot and trendy for anything you create and start creating what’s you …. .thats where I am today and why I created this blog.

A long time I ago I stopped searching what’s trendy, going to be trendy and other sites and started do what I love , using fabrics I am drawn to , painting with colors I love. Maybe its trendy maybe its not, it just what I love. I simply just LOVE bringing a little of that to you.
Taking someone “junque” and making it my special treasure weather its for my home or yours.
I am not worried about my # or readers or how many likes I have on facebook. I am doing my own thing and throwing any sewing or design rules out the door ( not that I ever studied or followed them before). But I learned a long time ago through epic fails of trial after trial that I do things in a *unconventional * not the proper *totally off the wall kind of way….. and thats ok. Thats who I am. I am Pink Lemonade , I am Junque in the trunk , I am me….
