today at chez moi








while immersed to today's writing of "living la vida tranquilista" for my publisher, i looked over at bonnard by our holiday tree. he was nibbling on the christmas lights so i snapped a photo of him looking innocent. this kitty has been a menace since day one. when he was a kitten he used to hide in the tree branches. now that he's a bit . . . well, obese, he gnaws on lights instead.

also, delighted to share that my new 2010 AND 2011 planner pads arrived yesterday. i have a june 2009-june 2010 planner now, but it starts to get a bit cumbersome to carry two mid-year . . . so i bought a fresh 2010 one to decorate. hope to have some creative play time to do so (despite grad school deadlines) and will be sure to take photos.

next friday the 18th i have a play date schedule with my seamstress to craft and sew fun spins on a few fave TranquiliT pieces for my etsy store. *sew* excited to have some schedule creative space after a semester focused on graduate school. wonder what i did with my time before grad school. isn't that how it always works? you feel overwhelmed, add something new, and wonder what you used to do with all your free time? we're such malleable beings and able to take on more than we imagined. kudos to us!

once i finish my final two papers (and during study breaks this weekend), i plan to sketch out the spring collection. i'm debating what must-haves should be added (moi - skirted legging + flowy skirt a la paris style) and what should be subtracted (2-in-1 maxi dress). i'd *love* your feedback. the current collection is visible here: http://tranquilit.com/f09-linesheet.pdf. i'll be unveiling new pieces and the chosen colors (thanks to your votes) tres soon.

off to tranquil space to handle accounting, programming, and planning pre-yoga tonight. best wishes for an oh-so-tranquil and whimsical wednesday. xo

I got my first few TranquiliT items in the mail earlier this week. I LOVE THEM! I've been telling just about every person I know. The skirt pants are soooooooo comfy. Thank you for creating such a fabulous, eco-friendly, versatile line of clothing. What a joy!

i keep thinking i have no use for a planner pad, because i'm at work 9-5 and so think i don't need to plan my creative free time, but in reality? this would be a wonderful thing.

may have to order one for the new year and decorate it all up!

I'm requesting a planner pad as a Christmas gift from the bf this year. Excited to schedule time in it for decorating the cover during the semester break!

KW- you really should get a huge fat check from planner pad for endorsement. You've converted me for life! Or they should at least give you a lifetime supply!

Lynne from NY said...

I just ordered my planner pad last night. They really should have a "Referred by Kimberly Wilson" button for the "How did you hear about us?" question!

i just ordered my 2010 planner pad and can't wait to get it in the mail!

i completely agree with lynne, a referred by kimberly wilson option would be fabulous. and yes, i also agree that you should get a lifetime supply ;)

as always, thanks for turning us all on to fabulous items that help make our daily life easier & more sparkly!

hugs!!

the planner pad sounds amazing! Is that your own cover you have had made? It's beautiful!

LOVE TranquiliT - definitely need basic leggings or narrow leg pants in the basic line.

Jenny said...

you've convinced me to try out the planner pad! i would LOVE to know how you decorate your cover - tape? fabric? stickers?

KW, I plan to play with my planner pad this weekend, especially with the new changes to my life in 2010. I love it all.
