A little bit of old, and a bigger bit of Nu!

The sun has set for Soleil Rouge and now is Nicole Lee Designs.

After nervousness and a little stressing out about making the big switch of names and finding one I wanted to switch to (at first not wanting to use my name) it had to be done. Soleil Rouge was a bit hard to spell by many, easily mispronounced by some and it didn't quite fit the direction I want to go in design wise. Now thats its done, I wonder why I hadn't changed it earlier. :-/

A crafty challenge

My friend Dawn has challenged me to do a craft-a-day during August.
It all ties in to the Use What You Have Movement of crafters. You see, one of the habits of crafty people is buying supplies with projects in mind, or a terrific sale or a happening of Oh My Thats Super Cute, It Must Be Mine. (I suffer from all three cases. ;-P) And for some reason the inspired projected doesn't get finished, supplies go unused. So, the goal is to use the supplies I have in house and finish a project from scratch or from partials that have some how managed not to get done each day. . Here is number one, a wrap skirt that has been cut out for a couple of weeks, no longer a UFO (Un-finished Object).
