Spring Break Breather

Studio NewsMichelle Maynard

Happy Spring!  Ooopsies - Looks like I've fallen behind on my blog posts lately but that's kind of good news because it means I've been busy with lots of spring orders!  It's time to take a little break to spend time with family though so the Simone's Rose online shop will be closed until April 11th for a short break.  

I hope you're all having a great start to spring and am looking forward to getting back to the studio to make y'all some beauties from our new collection.

Hey hey y'all!  Well, new year - new blog!  Are you in!?  I hope you'll join me in this new journey - I'm looking forward to sharing some studio news, style, DIY, sewing, eco and small business tips and much, much more!   Please let me know if you're hankering for any specific content and I'll do my best to work it in.  

Studio news....

Right now its all about catching up on business things like inventory, accounting & planning ahead but don't worry - there's still time for the best part of my job which mostly involves designing, picking out fabrics and researching new ideas!   Here's a sneak peek at my (always evolving) inspiration board for SS16....


I've also got fall/winter 16 in the works, setting up an online shop right here on our website and getting your orders out so suffice it to say its a busy time in the studio BUT I've been wanting to get this blog started for a while now so I'm just going to make myself an extra cup of coffee and go for it!
