Good morning! Sometimes I think that when people look at my blog or my Etsy shop that they may not see a cohesive product…and I worry about that a little sometimes. However, I just enjoy doing all the things that I do too much to get rid of any of them. I know I could maximize my time and efforts if I chose one endeavor and focused only on that, like quilting or bag making or pattern writing. But I love them all dearly. And there’s something to that saying, “Variety is the spice of life”, am I right? In my previous career, I was an agriculture science teacher. Let me tell you…that is a job where you never have to worry about having the same day twice! That’s what made it fun and exciting, and that’s why I love being able to create a multitude of things. The teacher in my wants to share patterns and tutorials to give a love of sewing to others, and the bright color lover in me (I was obsessed with Lisa Frank, growing up in the 90s!!!) loves to translate that love into bags and quilts. I know that my “creative process” (I really don’t take myself too seriously, so don’t roll your eyes at that) would suffer if I didn’t have all of these things to throw myself into.
