For the Love of Buttons

Who can get stressed because of buttons?

The answer: me.
Why? Because i can't find the perfect buttons. When i find a close to ok one, she vetoes it.
What now? She wants me to find another way. How? Can't she tell me what exactly she wants?
I'm not exactly a mind reader. Being plus-sized does make me know her market instantly. I do want to be dressy and fashionable. SM market is boring and plain. i have to make shirts upon polo shirts. The most i can play with are buttons and she won't give me that.
What now?
If not button, embroidery or print. I need style. I'm ashamed to say one thing being my design when the sewers and her butchering it.

New Multiply

I deleted my multiply account today and made a new one.
My old one was just the same as this one and it made no sense retaining it. I wanted to put a different topic there and so I did.
I am going to post tips for big girls like me. Full-figured.

Frustrated Designer

My boss told me yesterday that i had to stick to basic designs. Super Basics. As in no more ruffles, no more pleats here and folds there. This picture right up here is the epitome of her perfect design.
How am i supposed to put my personality into my creations?
For one thing, I pick out groovy prints. There are other of my groovy designs that sells. There are a handful which don't. My boss thinks the market is not ready to accept them yet. Being a full-figured, I design what i wish to wear. Stylish, faltering clothes.
Philippines isn't exactly a land where being big is being embraced. The markets is still scared of daring clothes. Not that ruffles and super puffs are daring enough. I sure hope I can tell these girls that men's shirt is not fashion AT ALL. Even a size 20 can get away with skinny jeans.
Carry lang, girl!

Dark Possession

My much awaited Carpathian is finally here! Yes, Manolito De La Cruz has his own book!. After being mentioned in a couple of books and being such a hero in Dark Celebration, he finally has a story of his own.

For a man who thinks his life is worthless, he sure is still bossy. Most Carpathians are, I'm afraid. Christine Feehan has added another facet to the world of the Carpathians. Her work is evolving and I'm loving every second of it.
In the last book, (my favorite Dark Celebration) Manolito discovers he is close to tuning vampire. He had to get away but then he hears something, senses light. He is drawn to Destiny's best friend, a human named MaryAnn Delaney. She is under Gregori and Nicolae's protection so he cannot touch her.
So, he bites her and erases the memory. Not too gentleman, huh? The guy was desperate. Then, he hinted to Rafael to invite MaryAnn to counsel Jasmine and Solange. MaryAnne is a Councilor for battered women. Jasmine and Solange, by the way, are Riordan De La Cruz's lifemate's family.
So, after the death of Manolito, Rafael and his brothers holds on to his soul and would not let go. They force it back to his body and Gregori sets to heal him.
Enter Dark Possession! Set in the thickness of the Amazon rain forest, MaryAnn searches where in the world did the De La Cruz brothers bury the tall dark stranger? She had to find him no matter what. Why? MaryAnn doesn't know.
But is MaryAnn who she really says she is? just a human councilor for battered women? How come she has a compulsion in her voice? She claims she is not psychic yet the animals and the wind follow her every call. What about Manolito? What is happening to him? He is stuck halfway between the land of the living and the dead. he knows only MaryAnn is his salvation... or destruction.
What of the Malinov Brothers? An Razvan and Xavier. Amidst coming to terms with his life mate, Manolito must also uncover a plot to assassinate the prince. A plot he though up of and now, the Malinov brothers are implementing. With two brothers dead, Kirja and Maxim, there are still three powerful Master Vampire and an army of undead to defeat. Not to mention the wizards and the Jaguar-men. So many things happening in so little time. The book is really action packed!

Spoilers: MaryAnn is a Lycan. Manolito becomes half Lycan by the end of the book. But all will end well.
