HOW RANDOM GOODNESS POSTS WORK
Random goodness posts are those that support the monthly challenges. I chose the word ‘Random’ for two reasons; they are not a regular as the monthly challenge posts and they can on occasion have nothing to do with that month’s challenge. I chose the word ‘Goodness’ because the posts are things I find interesting and I feel they add more to the monthly challenges.
These are posts that go over the history of some aspect of that month’s challenge. For example if one month’s challenge involves using a button, that month there could be a post about the history of the button.
BEHIND THE BLOG
There are lots of interesting things that happen behind the scenes on this blog. You might see the sketches in the challenges section of the blog. In Behind the Blog you might not only see the drawings for that month’s challenge but learn the design process, I used to create the illustrations. This is also where you can find photos and video from behind the scenes at events like photoshoots and conferences.
Trend Research is the section to look in to see how designers are using that month’s inspirational item on the runway. For an example, if a button is this month’s inspirational item, see how designers are using buttons in new and innovative ways on the runways.
Interviews with people in the fashion, sewing, blogging, and graphic design industries will be found in the Interviews section.
In this section, I will show you some of my favourite things. They might relate to that month’s post, for example, patternmaking books, My Top 5 Lace Dresses. Or they might just be something I saw or bought recently that I am totally smitten with.
PHOTO OF THE WEEK
I will post photos here that I find interesting. They might have to do with that month’s challenge or they could just be something I saw and stuck a cord with me.
