learning life’s lessons
hi guys, glad you stopped by! i’ve been working all day making tiny accomplishments that will hopefully add up to big ones soon. it’s been a struggle to keep the discipline up but i’m determined to change my life.
they say if you keep repeating what you’ve been doing, you’ll get the same things you’ve always gotten. so in an effort to change that i’ve been trying to focus, be more productive and do the things i say i will. you may remember the ‘boudoir noir’ collection i was working on about a year ago. truth is i have so many irons in the fire that some of them just get left to fizzle out and sadly this was one of them. now i’ve got to scramble to revive it and do some serious damage control.
it started out with such promise, the inspiration photo, the beautiful sketches my friend mike drew, even the prototype from the factory! we were so close. and then it was my turn. we needed fabric and i dropped the ball.
when i didn’t send fabric in time, they went ahead and chose something without me. my heartbreak paralyzed me from moving forward and i guess i lost interest in the project. this debacle below was one of four that were done in a ‘contemporary’ (am i being too kind)? pattern. it wasn’t till the other day when i got my mojo back and asked about the pieces that i found out they’d been sent to a consignment store!
eeeeeekkkk!!! thank god my web gal could create a virtual vector version for me!
now i’m scrambling to get back on track. this was more than a mistake, it was a true life lesson. now i just need to take that schooling and run with it. i’m so tired of learning the same things over and over and not having them stick. my new mantra is going to be ‘finish what you start!”
well that’s a wrap for today. good night friends, i hope you reach your goals and dreams!
