Challenge Yourself!

Posted Saturday, September 12, 2009

Hi Diva's! I'm SO late this weekend - its seems my life is a constant whirlwind -
me and the kiddos went to see 9 today (and it was smashing indeed).

I decided that I would chill out for a couple of weeks - I finished up a few orders that had been lingering. But the big change was I cleaned up my topsy turvey house when my brother came to visit on labor day - it had been so long since I had packed up the sweat shop that I had forgotten how cool it was to be able to walk through the house without tripping! LOL! We continued to do a 'clean sweep' before we go to bed at night and so far so good.... friend Gail, who just finished up her degree a couple of days ago decide to celebrate by starting a 365 challenge - yep - you guessed it - that's a full year of creating something every single day! She has been doing school so many years and now that she has time to create - she can't wait! I was inspired by her - so, I to will be participating in the 365 challenge, BUT not the sewing you would expect - I figure if I'm going to challenge myself that I should think out of the box. I will use this challenge as a way to try all those projects that Ive found in magazines, books and online and make them - it's almost like I'm giving myself permission to be 'free'. Instead of feeling like I have to be consumed with keeping new things in my shops - I'm going to be consumed with trying new things and keeping my house in order! Then, when I get an order online - It will be refreshing instead of daunting to sit down and sew! YAY! I'm very excited and I will keep you all posted on my projects! I'm sure everyone can find new ways to challenge themselves and I'd love to hear your ideas! XO

What a fabulous idea! My life's a little too crazy right now to commit to a 365 challenge of creating, but I can't wait to see your projects! Hmm...I really need to declutter my house - maybe I should do a 365 declutter challenge, and get rid of one piece of clutter every day for a year. ;D
