Nelly Don: A Kansas City Entrepreneur

With the International Quilt Market trade show coming to Kansas City next week, I’ve been immersing myself in Kansas City history as much as possible lately so that I can share fun places for visitors to see while they’re here! I’m sharing all my pictures and suggestions on my instagram account @amybarickman_studio, and also with […]


Accessories Make the Costume, My #MeMadeMay Jewelry

But they sure make me happier! I love jewelry, especially statement pieces with meaning. In the month of May I took a pledge along with thousands of other makers in our sewing community to join the Me Made May challenge, officially known as #mmmay18, hosted by So, Zo What Do You Know?. This challenge encourages makers […]

Free Image Friday – Vogue Swimsuit Model

But, back in the early 1920’s a head-to-toe wool suit, bathing cap and apparently, matching cape was all the rage for beach living. To me, it just looks hot and heavy!
