Hello there friend!
I am so overwhelmed by all the love, support and words of encouragement that I have received from all of you about my grandma passing away. It was definitely what I needed to hear (or read), that it will all get better and not to be too hard on myself about the small things right now. You have no idea how much it means to me. I feel so grateful to be in the blogging world and to have you all here with me. It’s the best thing ever. ♥
I am happy to report that I am doing much better! The fresh sting is gone and while I am still nursing the wound, I am not thinking about it constantly and not crying about it anymore.
I have cleaned up around the house a little, I did all the dishes and laundry, and I have started a few sewing projects! I am testing for a new pattern company for their first pattern, I am working on a dress for a lovely gal, and I am working on some cute little things that I am wanting to sell in an online store! I can’t talk too much about them because they are in the very early stages! Just know that I am excited and you should be too for when I get to share them with you!
I read this amazing post from the Coletterie about “How to Prevent DIY Anxiety” which was great in helping me calm down about botching a refashion project I worked on a few weeks ago and not letting it get to me. You should totally read it.
As far as the Wardrobe Architect challenge, in the month of March we are supposed to be planning what items we need in our wardrobes by identifying the holes in our closets. Then, we are supposed to decide which items to buy and what patterns to use for the ones we will make! This is a little difficult for me considering I didn’t do too well with February’s task of clearing out my closet.
I don’t love most of what’s in my closet and the things that I do like, I only moderately like and it’s because they are the things that fit me! So clearing it out was very stressful!! Honestly, I feel like I need a whole new wardrobe! Needless to say, that will not be happening anytime soon (or even by the end of this year!) I will just have to prioritize what I need in my closet the most and work my way down the list. So, in the next couple weeks I will have a post up listing all the things I need/want to buy/make!
Something else that I am working on is eating healthier and exercising. I’m so tired of feeling tired and bloated and huge. So tired of it. So I am recommitting to eating as healthy as I can and I am going to try and workout 5 days a week (and hopefully end up doing at least 3 days). I used to be so good and then I got lazy and now I am at a place I don’t want to be anymore. Wish me luck please! And if you have any advice feel free to share it!
I went on a fun date night with my husband to go to see the new Cinderella movie! It was soooo gooood!! AND OMG ALL THE DRESSES WERE AMAZING. AND THE HAIR AND MAKEUP WAS AMAZING. I WANT ALL THE POOFY FLOWY TWIRLY DRESSES! AND I WANT TINY RHINESTONES ALL OVER MY HAIR. CAN I PLEASE JUST GO TO A BALL?!
Even the dress she wears to clean the house…I WANT IT.
