A new day of swimming and life.

I some times get jealous of other people's success. I get caught up in the day to day stuff of cleaning, toddler raising and feeding everyone. When I can find the time to step away from things for a moment I see that I too can create a path to my own success.

Beginning today I am committing to creating my own plan to sewing/crafting success. I define success as making, dare I say it, a LIVING from my sewing. There, I said it! I've probably said it before, but I tell you I get going on that path and so easily get sidetracked!

Last night I grabbed a piece of paper from the printer and made an action plan for this week. Since I want to show my process, even the nitty gritty, I will show you my notes tomorrow.

One of my goals is to not only sew but to draw again. I used to draw all of the time, and just like sewing or writing, we all have a creative voice and I am not sure what that looks like when it comes to my drawing anymore. So today and went and bought a sketch pad! Next I gotta dig through my craft closet and pull out my paints.

I am really excited for my renewed commitment to my creative path!

Oh yeah! So part of this whole thing is I am going to doing something, anything creative every day for one year! 365 days straight everyone! Let's see what happens!

On a side note it was super hot here today, close to 100 degrees, so I blew up the kiddie pool and let the little cutie swim!

Yes, that's me taking pictures of her in the background. My lovely man took this picture of us both.
