If you know me or follow my Facebook page, you’re most likely aware that the last year and a half of my life have been… turbulent. I’m not out of the woods yet, but the trees are thinning and I’m beginning to see the sun. I recently found myself scouting fabric and writing a quote for a private commission, which I have avoided doing for some time due to the chaos in my personal life and uncertainty about my future. Although I am still under a great deal of stress, I’m finding that getting back to the things I love and tackling projects that I can control is a way to feel as normal as possible while I wait for the matters beyond my control to sort themselves out.
The equinox is tomorrow. Spring is coming. What better time to renew my business and my passion for this art form?
In the coming weeks, I intend to write more blog entries and tutorials, revise the gallery portion of this website, complete a new costume, and take you all on a tour of my upgraded sewing studio. I am also open to taking new commissions again (although I will be very adamant about only doing one at a time and I will not accept any rush deadlines – for my sanity as well as the quality of my work), so consider this my grand re-opening!
Thank you to everyone who has stood by me so patiently all this time. You mean more to me than you know.
