Alright.. so it’s definitely been a little while since I’m posted anything here. The truth is that I had a full-on tutorial written for my DIY wire tassels, only to have that post magically disappear (did I hit save, doesn’t it autosave?, who knows anymore). I attempted to rewrite the entire post which was LONNGGG, but have since avoided this blog like the plague because of it. I’ll get the tutorial up… eventually.
Outside of that, it’s business taxes season (due in about 7 days to be exact) so I’m a little overwhelmed. And the monotony of being in my home office by myself with just my two dogs – who do not have conversations with me, haha – was starting to get old, so here I am, sitting at a Barnes & Noble, finally updating my blog.
The last week was filled with lots of design work and attempts to create new product. I am such a perfectionist when it comes to new products in my shop, but when it comes to designing product/ items for family & friends – the inspiration just comes to me. And I always end up loving the work that I’ve created for them.
That’s the funny thing about designing – I can spend 10 hours on a piece for my shop that I only semi-like, only to LOVE something that I’ve created for a friend, which only took 30 minutes to create.
Needless to say, I think I’m in my head too much. Comparing and not enjoying. If only I could do design projects for friends all my life… haha
PS – the ‘Let’s Celebrate’ is also handwritten and then digitized – something I have the hardest time doing when it comes to my shop. It just never feels right…
