i decided i am done. after much going over the pros and cons, i have decided to stop working at the salon altering bridal dresses. i had been thinking of stopping for some time, but after a particularly rough week, and trying times with a couple of "bridezillas", and some other deciding factors coming into play, i decided it was time. i have also been steadily increasing in calls for my own things, both in general alterations and bellydance costuming, so it seemed silly to put off my business for someone else's. i will miss the girls i work with, they are a lovely group of girls. i will not, however, miss dealing with the brides. i am looking forward to a new freedom to play in my garden and cook more, and also paint some rooms in my house that have neede my attention for some time now! actually, i have quite a list going, of projects that i want to do but needed time!
