Welcome to March 2021… it’s been a year…

Welcome to March

Good day my dear friends. I must first apologize for lack of post, video, and newsletter last week. It was insanely busy. My studio is still not ready to move back in and I have been finishing a customer’s dress. (There will be a post all about that, after she receives it). When the studio is up and running – there will be a video about that. 

So welcome to March. How did we arrive here so quickly? It was just snowing and freezing and you couldn’t see the grass. This month is so filled with exciting things for Lucky 7 Studios and you as followers. 

  • 3 Periods of Costume Posts
  • 3 more Friday newsletters and posts
  • A quick post about Paris Fashion Week
  • 2 live Q & A  March 10 & 24 YouTube @ 2:00PM (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAJ5-WFNIL1vGqJKQELMN_Q) – be sure to subscribe to the channel so you know first when new videos have been uploaded and videos scheduled.
  • 2 videos (at least) (See live Q & A)

Let’s not forget this is Woman’s History month. I may seek out a guest writer. St. Patrick’s day (we are all Irish on the 17th), the first day of spring (something to definitely celebrate), and Palm Sunday, are all part of the month of March. And who could forget Daylight Savings Time? It begins for those of us where our government insists on confusing not only the humans but EVERY SINGLE animal out there! I have mine trained that they eat at a certain time. Well, when the time changes, they have to be trained all over again (or maybe it is I, that needs to be retrained?). 

I am taking custom orders for reenactments and weddings. Plus the new collection goes live in May. The website will also be getting a facelift this month – be on the lookout for changes coming your way. 

It has been a year since the news of COVID-19 spread across the globe and everything was shut down to slow the spread. Here we are a year later….. small and large businesses alike are struggling to keep their heads afloat. I have seen businesses that have been around for centuries, fall apart and shutter their doors forever. I challenge each and everyone of you to find a small business (mine would be great) and put your support there. Preferably in your own town. Shopping from the big box tops is overrated and the products are like everyone else. Look for something that is one of a kind!

Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays

Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays

I wanted to take this time to first thank all of you for your business. I know this past year has been rough on everyone. Everyone has been affected in one way or another. The good news is we, at Lucky 7 Studios, have so much in store for 2021 and we do not want you to miss a thing! I will save that for next week! (I meant to send this on Christmas day, but…)

For today, I just wanted to wish you either a Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays, whichever is your preference, and leave you with a taste of what is to come! 

Thank you all. 

Happy Thanksgiving

This year is a little rough for most, some have lost family, and others cannot be together. As the saying goes. we will get through this one way or another. We will persevere. With that said, let us take a moment and be grateful. Let us show thanks and gratefulness to our front line workers that are in healthcare, without them, where would we be? Let us thank the post office and the shipping companies, without them, how could we order online and stay safe? We salute the retail and the dining businesses also.

However, I want us to thank ourselves. I want us to recognize where we were when this all started and where we are now! We are an amazing people. We are showing that despite it all, we are grateful and proud! We are not roiling over and putting our bellies in the air, saying “I am done”. No, we are going on, moving forward. We are supporting each other in ways I haven’t seen in a very long time. We are getting to know our neighbors and lending a helping hand when needed. And they, in return, the same.

As we move closet to Christmas, with black Friday tomorrow, Shop Small on Saturday, and all the other retail campaigns, remember the small business on your “Main Street”, without your sales, they may not be there for you next year. This is a hard time for small businesses, let us reach out and pull them back to safety. Let us support every single local small business. Let’s flood them with kindness, and gratefulness as we visit their stores. The items may cost more, but they are made with love, care, attention to detail, and by a person, not a company that send their product elsewhere to be mass produced.

As I small business, I too fall into the category of needing pulling back. Keep an eye out tomorrow for a Black Friday special.

Thank you all for all you do. From all of us at Lucky 7 Studios, Happy Thanksgiving!
