Designers: Where are they now? Kiki from Kiki Creates
Hi everyone! I am so excited to be around here this month at Project Run and Play. I'm Kiki from Kiki and Company and I competed in season 4 of the competition. What a fun experience it was to really dig into my sewing and meet so many incredible people. I really think the sewing world is SO supportive and just love being inspired by all of you. Since competing, I have had an awesome few years DIY-ing (though I'm going to dig more into that this summer), designing (this is where a bulk of my time has gone) and when I find a little extra time, I get a sewing project done. Sewing is my happy place. As a graphic designer, mother of 5,wife of a VERY busy man and blogger, I don't have a lot of extra time, but I can tell you that those nights where I stay up till 3 am sewing my little heart out are VERY good nights. I always wake up refreshed and ready to take on life. Can any of you relate?!
My biggest accomplishments though still lie with these 5. When I competed in season 4, I had just had my 4th baby (he was just 2 months old) and I didn't know how life could get busier, so when I found out I was pregnant 8 months later, I found out that it really could. ;) Definitely in a good way though! They certainly keep me on my toes, they keep me reaching for my dreams and goals and they keep those smiles coming to my face. It's a good life I have.
I hope you sew right along with me this month and the pattern I am sharing. Truth be told, I ADORE SEWING, but I don't feel nearly qualified to be the Designer of the Month. I hope you will humor me and get your sew on as I will be sewing along with you. (I have 2 more projects to make and photograph before the month is over...at least that is what my goal is!) Thanks for being the inspiration you are...I love looking at all of the amazing projects that have come out this year and look forward to getting to know you this month. Come say hi on Instagram or Facebook, Pin along with me on Pinterest or come and shop for some fun pieces for your home in my shop! xoxo
