Hello everyone! Sorry for my lack of Sewing School posts in the last week and a half. These post have taken me a lot longer to write than I anticipated when I started the series. Being self taught, I want to be sure I am giving you the correct information and showing you what I think is the best and most efficient way to do things. I also want to be sure that my explanations are easy to understand for someone who is new to sewing. Even the shortest posts take me at least a day of researching, plus 6-8 hours to write because I go over it so many times.
Basically, I feel like I’ve been writing term papers all summer while taking care of three small kiddos, and I am exhausted!!! lol Not to mention, behind on so many other projects. This series is really important to me because I remember when I used to look at projects other people had done, and think to myself, “I could never do that”. I spent years afraid to even try, and I wish I had had someone telling me “YOU CAN DO IT”. Hopefully, that is what this series will do for at least one of you, and I want to offer you guys the best information I possibly can, and I feel like I have gotten so overwhelmed that I have become lazy with the posts. Every time I sit down to write a Sewing School post (or any other post for that matter), my head swims, so I just haven’t posted anything because I refuse to publish something that is not what I believe to be the best I have to offer you. I’ve got two tutorials ready to write, but when I sit down to do it, nothing.
I wanted to get the series finished before I leave to go on vacation next week, and I was really frustrated with myself when I realized it just wasn’t going to happen. But I have to cut myself some slack and realize that things don’t always go the way you planned, and sometimes you just need a break . So Sewing School is going to be taking a little summer break, and will resume Monday, August 20, 2012. And after some relaxation, and crossing a few things off my to do list, I will be back ready to go!
BUT, don’t be too disappointed! I have lined up some fabulous guest bloggers for while I am gone, and they are going to be sharing some great tutorials and recipes with you starting Friday! Tomorrow I’m going to give you a little sneak peak of who will be guest posting. And, if you are just going to miss me so much (you know you will! lol) and want to keep up with me while I am on vacation, you can follow me on Instagram! See you soon!
I feel like I should pay someone to write this for me, but for now, I’m a one woman show who hates talking about herself in a crowd. Lucky for me, I’m probably the only one reading this at the moment so that makes it a little easier. Basically, I’m a 38 year old homeschool mom of 3 turned cosmetology student born and raised in south Louisiana. Though I don’t write specifically about my faith, my life’s passion is to help women see themselves as Jesus does by doing life along side them and being as open and honest about my walk with Him as possible.
Most days, it doesn’t look super spiritual. It’s just me living my life while doing the best I can to get closer to Him. If I can just help ONE women see how beautiful, unique, and talented she truly is by sharing the mistakes, mishaps, and lessons learned, all this will be worth it. So I share a little bit of everything from homeschooling to travel to DIY and sewing projects gone wrong. Fashion and fitness. Wakeup and makeup. My motto is it’s okay to fail a little as long as you learn a lot. So you’ll see me write about a little bit of everything because through it all, He’s teaching me a lot.
