taking a leap

 

Recently I took part in an online course that was quite amazing.  Soul Restoration run by Melody Ross and the girls at The Brave Girls Club taught me a lot.  I haven’t yet finished each weekly class, and I will eventually…but what it did teach me was to just take a leap and do what I’m here to do!

I might come across as confident, but I guess I’m like many other artists who have that feeling of self doubt, and like many people, lack of self worth.  So I am working towards getting over that and putting my work really out there.  Really trying.

In the past couple of weeks, things are starting to look up!  I submitted several designs to an international card /stationery company that I have been wanting to submit to for about two years.  I got over the thought that they might say no.  So what if they do?  Just submit more!  As it turns out, please keep your fingers and toes crossed for me.  A few of my designs are going through to a vote…..!

And keep an eye on my Facebook Page, because probably some time next week I’ll let you know a really cool place that you can go see some things I make – it’s an amazing place and I’m pinching myself that I got this opportunity!

I’ve also got some new products in development, down a track that I wanted to go about 3 years ago.  Yeah, crazy huh? 3 years of not just getting it done?!  What was I thinking!?

Anyway ~ here’s a couple of articles in current magazines that I have written that I’m really proud of ~ think I’ll put a kit together of the Utterly Dreamy lace cuff.

And my trusty apron that I made for a market I was doing last year has made it into Volume 3 of Apronology!

I’ve been wearing it to the North Melbourne Market this year. It’s so practical!

  7. Love the apron you made for the markets, I have been thinking of making one with a homespun base and a pretty fabric for pockets (with zips) and waistband and ties. I will post about it if I get it made. then will have some for sale too.
