It’s been a long time.

Tuesday, June 7th, 2011

As the title suggests, this is going to be an example of the most common of all blogposts.

I’m sorry I haven’t posted in SOOOOOOOO long.

All sorts of things got in the way of abeautifulpalegreen for a while, but hopefully things should be picking up soon. I have officially registerred as self employed, and I am now running this website, as well as another. This site will stay as it always has, bringing you stuff that is ridiculously cute and awesome- the kind of thing you can comfortably wear every day, while never running the risk of running in to someone who’s wearing the same outfit. My other website, carneval.co.uk, is along similar lines, but aimed at a more alternative/ fetish based market. They’ll both be constantly updated with new products and posts and all sorts of things. And so the empire will grow! (You can imagine my evil laugh here. It’s really not that evil.)

In the meantime, I have a new sewing machine, and the case was boring, so I made it better!

Long overdue update

Sunday, February 21st, 2010

I know that most blogs do this. Update a bit and then do nothing for months and then apologise for not posting more. And I also realise that, just because I am aware of this fact, it does not become excusable that I do this too. But there we are.

Now, I know all my loyal fan is waiting for an update on abeautifulpalegreen, and here it is.

Firstly, I lost the contract to make a friend’s wedding dress, because her mother bought her one. This kind of sucks, but the blow was lessened by the fact that ON THE SAME DAY that I heard this, I made my first sale on Etsy! The parachute top has sold! I am very happy about this, because I really did feel that while the quality of costruction was not the best, since I started it a long time ago, when I really didn’t know very much about sewing, the idea for this top, and the execution, at least aesthetically, are pretty good.

The second piece of news is that, given this sale, I decided it was time to really push forward with this business. To that end, I have registered abeautifulpalegreen.com, and a friend of mine is very kindly building a site for me, which I am very much looking forward to!

I have a number of orders to fill for friends at the moment, as well as a dress for Marta, made of just the prettiest blue taffeta that I have ever seen, for a Very Important Event. And on the Etsy front, I am hoping to have another steampunk skirt, and a corset or two, available very soon, as well as a few more diverse items.

Hello

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2009

So here it is; a new blog, a new venture.

Let us tell you about ourselves.

Rob lives in England, but is going to move to Barcelona, where Marta lives, soon.

We make things, and attempt to sell them on Etsy.

This is the blog of Marta and Rob, a couple who make things.

Rob likes to knit, and to sew. He is a self-taught dressmaker.

Marta likes to crochet, and felt, and knit. She makes all sorts of things, and wears some of the things that Rob makes.

They have an Etsy store, where you can buy some of the things that you see on this blog.
