It’s fabulous January!

Fabulous January is the start of a spectacular New Year!

I’ve been working on my “plan” (dream!) for the year, and I decided to start off with some branding.

I created a Video “intro” which will be at the beginning of any Abfab videos I make this year — and you’re the first to see it — woohoo! What do you think? Do you like it? Let me know in the Comments below!

Click the video to start — it’s only 18 seconds :-)

I’ve been playing around with some ideas on how to get my creative juices going again (they’ve been on hiatus for a while, but they’re ready to jump into 2016!) and I thought I’d share some of these ideas with you:

  • create a Monthly Design — I could design one new design per month
  • each design could be available in several different ways:
    1. handpainted silk clothing
    2. handbag
    3. smart phone case, zipper bag etc
    4. umbrella
    5. and possibly other items — I do like the idea of gorgeous, bright coffee cups!
  • run Monthly competitions for my Abfab News Subscribers – the gorgeous souls who keep in touch with me and share snippets of their life — perhaps I could ask these folks to share photos of themselves with an Abfab designed piece of art, and they could be featured either privately for Subscribers only, or on a new Photo Gallery page I could create on my website.
  • create Journals with photos of my silk designs inside — also Diaries. UPDATE: The very first Abfab Diary has been published and is available on Amazon! Click here for more info and to look inside the Diary >> Here is a photo – I’m so thrilled with the way this turned out!

Do any of these ideas sound any good?

Would any of you like to Comment below or email me and let me know your thoughts?

I’d be ever so grateful — I’m thrilled to bits you’ve already chosen to follow along my creative journey, and I’d love you to be more a part of it.

Many thanks Abfabalicious friends!

From my heart to yours, have a fabulous January !

Happy Holidays from Teena!

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas 2015!

To play the video above, CLICK to start — it’s only 60 seconds :-)

Oh gosh — is it just me or does the month of December zoom by double-fast and speed up like a racing car??

It feels like I no sooner say, “Only 4 weeks till the happy holidays!” and then I go to sleep, but when I wake up it’s Christmas Eve — yikes! And no, I’m sure it’s not my counting :-)

So here I am to say I’m thinking of you, wherever you’ll be and whatever you’ll be doing to celebrate Christmas and the Happy Holidays!

I wish you all the very best for a wonderful, joyful, loving Holiday season and I look forward to chatting more in the New Year!

From my heart to yours, HAPPY HOLIDAYS to you and your family!

Happy Holidays from Teena!

Ho Ho Ho and Merry Christmas!

Big hugs with love from

Can you join me in Paris?

I’ll be in Paris for most of September this year, and I’m hosting my quirky Adventures again!

Plus Size Fashion Adventures

It would be great to meet you in the City of Love and Light!

You don’t need to be Plus Size to join us — many of the stores we visit have clothes in all sizes, and being with a lovely fun group of women in gay Paree is a bonus!

On the one day Adventure we shop for a few hours, then relax over lunch and get to know each other, ending off the Adventure in one of Paris’ lovely little restaurants. Sound like fun? Do join us :-)
