Responsibly Handmade Fashion by Jean Chung

Moving on with life..

Just finished watching the latest episode on Project Runway ("PR") ----- spoiler alert!  


Seriously, I was pretty upset that Gunnar was sent home. Gunnar, Chris, and Sonjia are now my favorite designers on Season 10 and I seriously watch just to see their work. Yes, Gunnar has been on the bottom for the last few challenges but he's so fun to watch! He talks, he engages, he gets frustrated over stuff but is never ruthlessly mean or hostile (ahem,, like Elena or Ven...)

Anyhow, I look forward to seeing his work in the future. I like seeing and supporting PR designers like Carol Hannah, and Althea.

Moving on...

My life is moving quite fast these days. A week ago, Marty and I signed the purchase agreement for our first home! Because this is a new home, actually hasn't even been built yet, and sold directly by the Irvine Compay (the company that owns the majority of the city of Irvine), there were no offers, no praying that our offer will go through, etc. But because it's a new community, the competition was a bit tough and we had to move very fast.


Hopefully, if everything goes well, we'll be moving in April next year.

And I'm taking another trip in less than 3 weeks! Hello, Maui! then KOREA again!

Marty and I have a friend who is having a destination wedding in Maui. Neither of us has ever been to Hawaii so we are really excited.

What am I doing to prep for the trip?

Sewing and knitting like crazy! I figured that I wanted to pack as many handmade items as possible on this trip. I'm planning a lot of dresses, pants, and basic pieces. It's interesting because while Hawaii will be still pretty warm and humid, Korea will be pretty chilly. I have to pack both bikinis and thick fall jacket.
