Great article! I am loving your organization. I need to get on the ball and start organizing my closets worth of craft supplies.

Such a wonderful article. It was nice having a little peak into your work space. I wish I was as tidy as you :o

I loved the article. I'm so glad to know you listen to crime novels and thrillers on tape! That's what I do all summer when I don't want any heavy reading like the stuff I read for school. Also, that is a great picture of you, your hair is so long and beautiful! I still harbor the dream (despite studying to be a librarian) that one day I will be a fashion designer like you!

erica said...

yay, i love your little boombox. i should listen to crime novels on tape, i never thought to do that.

sophia (?) looks so regal on top of your sewing machine.

Congrats on the new blog and the great article! I've updated my bookmarks :)

Sarah said...

I have organization space envy right now :) I love your workspace!

sally said...

Yay for good press! And you look beautiful as always. I can't believe your cats sit on your sewing machine...that's crazy!!!

Congrats on your write up. Your studio looks lovely.

cindy k said...

congratulations! i should listen to books on tape as i just don't seem to be able to sit down and read a book anymore.

love your studio and your cat looks so regal sitting a top your sewing machine. i don't like when things get messy either and have to clean up each day as though i'm leaving the office.

jenny, this is too awesome! thank you so much for posting it, i've been meaning to ask if it was posted anywhere. (and i thought you looked beautiful - i wish my face blushed as nicely when i got nervous. i just get sweaty. yeah, sick.)

What a fun article. I love peeking into people's work spaces, especially when they're in their home. And what a great idea re the books on tape! That has never occurred to me, but I'm definitely going to try it out!

Thanks for sharing - the article is awesome... well done!

jenny gordy said...

thanks, ladies! really the red face was not the worst part, elly. it was the sweating! so silly. anyways, you can get books on tape at the library for free, and it really motivates me to sew for hours on end.

andrea said...

aw, i'm so happy for you! you deserve all kinds of success. the red face is endearing.

emily said...

so much fun to see your workspace. and congrats on the article.

Graziella said...

wow! congrats!

Jessie said...

Books on tape + sewing = awesome!

I have been following your work for a few months now, and I just recently figured out that you live in KC!!! (I saw that you used Habitat shoes in a photo shoot, and then saw that your workspace was featured in Ink... how could I have missed that!) We just moved here in August and I LOVE it so far.

Anyways, I love your style and your designs and I can't wait to see what lovely things you come up with next!
