Newly Designed Sofa and New Family Addition
What a productive week this has been! I just finished a newly designed sofa. I've been wanting to add some new designs to the line and this is the first. It wasn't what I initially designed. Couldn't get my initial design to act right, so I made a few alterations. I'm happy with the end result. This one is currently listed in my Etsy shop.
This sofa is a little more modern and a little more casual. The seat cushions are more pillowy (not a real word) which adds to the casual look. It comes with a set of reversible throw pillows. One side is a beautiful paisley.
The other side is the sofa fabric. This allows the buyer to add their own pillows and change the entire look of the sofa.
The sofa still has a tailored look to it.
With the same level of details that come with my other sofas. I am not taking any styles away (yet), I am adding to what will be available on my Etsy site.
You may be familiar with Grace and her daughter, Courtney . Well meet Kevin. He is Courtney's father. He and Grace recently reunited after living separate lives the past two years. They never made it down the aisle, even though they were engaged right after Grace got pregnant. Mr. and Mrs. Langford were a little overbearing and this caused some problems in the relationship. Now a little older, they wanted to give the relationship another chance. Originally I had Courtney as a 5 yr old. She doesn't appear to be as old as Julian, even though they are the same size. So I am adjusting her age to 4 1/2.
"Courtney, no candy right now. I have a healthy snack for you in the kitchen." (Grace)
"Oh, one little piece won't hurt her." (Kevin)
"Don't you remember being a kid and wanting to hear "yes" when you asked for a piece of candy?" (Kevin)
Grace turns to Kevin. She wants to say something about how her mother made sure she had healthy snacks so her teeth wouldn't rot and maybe if someone had told him "no", he wouldn't have all those cavities. She holds her tongue, realizing how anti-productive that statement would be, especially since it would seem like she was throwing his mother under the bus. Instead she says nothing. Courtney still didn't get the candy, but at least she and Kevin didn't spend the rest of the day brooding over hurt feelings.
I hope they can make the relationship work.
P.S. Limbe dolls, I tried to introduce Kevin to Paulette first. She was not feeling him, so he had to move on and find his place elsewhere.
