Since I have moved, my blog posts as well as new items on Etsy have been few and far between.
There's a reason for this I suppose - I am pretty much at a total creative stand-still.
I have at least 5 half-finished projects laid out on my sewing table, and all of them I have managed to botch something on. Lately I have just been giving up instead of ripping out a seam and re-constructing it. I really need to get out of the "I suck" mindset and simply correct my mistakes when they happen! I think some of this has to do with the fact that sewing has been making me miserable lately. My old grabbed-from-the-dumpster rolly chair got trashed when we moved, so now I have been sitting in a hand-me-down chair from the neighbor that the back has fallen out of for the most part and KILLS my back to sit in. Not to mention the fact that I actually have to physically get up and move the chair to the other side of the table when I have to switch between the serger and sewing machine.
So, my goals for the month are as follow:
1) Buy a new rolly chair with my birthday money (I turned 22 on August 26th - woo!)
2) Stop constantly telling myself I suck when I make a mistake
3) List at least one new item on Etsy per week
