It's a miracle that i actually finished another handmade journal cover for the newest additions to my little collection. It felt so good to sit on the floor at my creative table (i have a very Japanese style crafty table) working on a crafty project. Must try to stay healthy...
I called this piece "Letting go". This little piece of embroidery is a reminder of a sentiment that "when you trust and let go, life will flow in the direction it is meant to, with your best interest at heart".
Letting go of your old self and reaching for something greater, can be exciting but a little bit scary ~ it can be a very unpleasant experience because it hasn't happened yet. But by leaving behind where you presently stand and taking a leap of faith into the unknown, it might just reveal what you are truly capable of becoming.
This particular girl has it all figured out and knows that when we let go and trust that it will all work out, we also learn how to find happiness in the times between the dream and the realization of that dream. Something I am still learning to practice daily both personally and in my business.
I've used natural linen for the outside layer and a sweet green Polka Dots linen for the inner layer.I added a sweet green grosgrain ribbon and attached a handmade fabric embroidered button as the bookmark for flair. A few more things to share, and then all the new work will be available really soon!
Now it's time to focus. The Pipit Wonderful Market 7 (i was being accepted to do, yipee!) is just over two weeks away and i have plenty to do to prepare. Plenty. I'm creating one more journal...and then on to weekend tote bags and shopping bags. Lots to do.
October is a very special month for me here.
It was the beginning of my creative story 3 years ago.
It's hard to believe ~ something i'm finding myself saying more and more.
Thanks for being along with me for all these times.
You're so good to me!
Love to you and lots of it.
