I'm Giddy!

Have you ever heard someone say, "Things don't just happen overnight!"? That saying is slowly ringing true to me...slooowly. I love sewing, but truthfully I love a lot of things. I love my family, I love my friends, I love working on our house, I love my faith and everytime I add something new to my list, I take a little bit more of my time away from everything. This leaves very little time for things to just "happen." Everything I do has to grow. My children have to grow and learn and nothing I do with them happens overnight. Sewing is grand but none of these designs happen instantly. I may sew the bag up in a few hours, but the whole process takes weeks or even months, because I have a lot to do, as does everyone. My point? Well, occassionally, really great things happen! Things that I've forgotten about because they "didn't happen overnight" and these things make me think, "OK this is taking a long time, but I'm getting there."

And I'm learning that if I keep my head in the game (the right game) great things will come (thank you HSM). They may come slowly, but I'm in no hurry, I have a lifetime to enjoy great things. I'll fill you in on a little secret though...there's more great things coming for you...soon.

Now, I'm on my way over to my Etsy shop to post those highly anticipated Halloween Tote Patterns. And because it's such a great day, how about we make that discount a little more discounted than usual? Yes? No? Let me know. ;)

Happy Monday!

Hey that is so awesome. I'll be honest I'm a little jealous I wish I had a little more creative juice. But at least I have you and Roni so I can have a sip every once in a while.
