Why I Started a Sewing/Project Blog: A Remider to Myself
I have gotten better over time and have become more confident in my abilities. I have found that as I have been blogging though something has changed. I am pretty sure part of it has to do with all the sewing/craft blogs I read now. And my friend who I got the idea from to start a sewing blog is now all over the place. (She really is amazing.) I have like 6 people beside me who read this and instead of being me and just posting when I made something, I started to feel this pressure to perform so that I would become something. I sometimes think I have to take the pictures in a perfect manner in order for them to be worthy to post. Then, one day I ran across an article on Simple Mom or Small Notebook (I can't remember which!) that basically reminded me be who you are. Your blog is not someone else's blog. Do it for you, be you. So, that being said, I think I feel a weight lifted off my shoulders with feeling like I have to impress the 6 of you. I'm not trying to be a hit in the blog world, I just want to keep track of my stuff and share ideas.
Since I hate posting without pictures, I will leave you with this and come full circle. Here are just a few things my mom has made over the years.

If there was ever a person who should have a craft blog, it should be my mom - she sews, makes jewelry, crochets, does card-making, has done woodwork in the past, general crafts and always has the greatest ideas. But alas, I can't get her to start one!
