Make It Happen
oh em gee, it’s july. the half way mark in the year.
it’s also my birthday month. so normally i take this time to reflect and regroup.
as i look back on my new year resolutions i laugh. they were so ambitious and unrealistic. as i turn twenty.eight. (eek) the sense of urgency to “get my shit together” is mounting. because let’s get real, being broke and thirty is not a good look.
aside from being debt free, twenty.eight. is going to be the year i start my passion project, aka my etsy shop. the shop will center around something i learned to make from my grandmother: tote bags.
i am so proud of myself, last night i cut the fabric, and started my sewing machine. only to find out that the thread i bought was too fragile for my machine! usually i take setbacks as “signs” but not this time. i instantly went on amazon prime and bought thread. i’ll report back later this week on how the project is going.
in the meantime, what is your passion project? i’d love to hear some of your hopes/dreams so please share with me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
