Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the holidays. LOVELVEOVEOVELVEOVLVOLOVE them. The food, the return of friends from out of town, the drinks, the family (sometimes!), and did I mention the FOOD?!
Cookies for days. So. Many. Cookies.
Though I feel now that if I even so much as look at another cookie, I might explode.
Okay, I may or may not have had one while typing this post. Two.
It’s not my fault, they are homemade heaven in a Christmas tin, thanks to my lovely Kali over at ShrtStacks! Keeping me fat and happy well into 2015
Now that the holidays are over and the new year has rolled in, I feel like I need to re-motivate myself. Back to sewing, reading, cooking, and of course, blogging. I can’t just keep up with my life through various daily Timehops for the rest of my years, can I?! I think not.
I would also like to point out to future Me, that I have type ‘my’ for ‘me’ and ‘me’ for ‘my’ each time during this post.
OK, back to goals. 2015 goals……………………I hope.
Some time last year, I was inspired to make my own lingerie. The feel of the satin, the silk, the lace; It’s wonderful. Almost like a dream. No matter how 2007 Kelly Osbourne
I feel like I look, (Let’s be honest, we all have those days), I can come home, put these luxurious suckers on, and feel like Dita Von Teese.
I picked up a couple of patterns from Ohh Lulu, as well as one from Mrs. Depew, and I’ve only cut out the patterns.
I’m not sure what happened to me last September, but I just lost my motivation. I think it may have happened when I started “tailoring” at a local boutique here. I put that in quotations because I had maybe 2 clients, and the rest was just sitting around, being a boring shop girl in a store with lovely items, but no traffic.
Point is, I’m getting back at it. I’ve made a few dresses, a bunch of skirts, and failed to finish a top.
I’m going to pull a Drake and start at the “bottom”, and work my way up….or out, I guess. This week I will be choosing my exact adventure. I will be picking out the following patterns:
- Dress (or maybe two. I really would like a vintage wrap style dress.)
- Cropped Cardigan
That’s about one a month. I think that is a reasonable amount. This creative venture does not include my knitting, crocheting, or food creating goals. It’s pretty safe to say that this year will be a creative one. I am also trying to get out of the house more, maybe ride a bike and rejoin ballet. GOALS!
