back with a bang

and an alter ego.

meet roxietoxl, oonaballoona's other half of the brain. where oona likes to work in cottons and pretty prints while sipping chardonnay, roxie likes to tear up leather and suede while slugging tequila.

she hijacked oona for most of the day, setting up her shop over at etsy. but oona will be back shortly to fill you in. i know, promises promises. but blogging makes me happy-- that is, reading your blogs over these many months makes me happy, and creating makes me happy, and there is going to be a lot more of all of it in steady doses. cause happy is top on the list. love, oona


  1. Wild thing

    You make my heart sing

    You make everything


  2. Welcome back! And those are some foxy designs. Helloooooo, nurse!

  3. It looks good. I'm not going to buy anything from you, but mostly because I don't have the money. :-)

  4. That orange dress is awesome! Did you just drape it or is it from a pattern?

  5. hi Tj, thanks! i'm pretty sure i used ichigogirl's amazing free pattern as a base:


    but instead of a cowl neck, on both pattern pieces i drew a gentle curve from the shoulder seam straight up into a long rectangle to make a tube.


i thankya truly for taking the time to comment, i love a good conversation-- and hope you know my thanks are always implied, if not always written!
