|Me & My Girls|
"Our life is NOT serene." "You will not find me sitting in the living room, sipping tea, in a perfectly clean home, with all of my duties done, while imagining color schemes and styles for my upcoming line of swim suits." "More likely, I would be sucking down an espresso, trying to work out a color scheme, running after an almost 2 year old, while keeping an eye on the other four rascals outside, making forts with rusty nails and rocks for hammers." That is a more realistic picture of my life."
"Our home is very full of life." "And though it can be a little nerve racking at times, it is usually exciting and robust, with the regular mess and splash of crazy for good measure, and we wouldn't have it any other way....except a maid would be nice."
"Arrayed et Adorned was born out of necessity really." "The ladies of our family had a need for some modest, but flattering swim wear, so I got to work at creating some."
"Turns out, a lot people felt the same way as I did." "I made suits for those who asked, and soon realized the huge need for this kind of swim wear, and that I had a great opportunity before me." "Now I just needed money."
"So, with no rich uncles to bequeath me their fortune, in 2006 I started Arrayed et Adorned on Etsy here, to make the money I would need for this dream of a swim suit company."
"After two years of hard work, I finally got to jump." "I started in my garage, designing patterns and sewing all of the suits myself." "And after many mistakes, and a plethora re-designing and of sample making, Bathing Beauty Swim Wear was born." "Eventually, I earned enough money to hire someone else to do my sewing for me, and that was a WONDERFUL day!"
"I am still in the production process of the Bathing Beauty Swim Suit for women, and may be for some time, but it will come." "And then I hope to start a new branch of Arrayed et Adorned called Liev & Lucius." But you'll just have to wait and see for that one."
"Here's to joy around our tables!"
