It's been a very long time since I last updated. Life is pulling me in many directions and I'm just taking it as it comes. There are lot of things I want to do, but really I only have time to focus on one task at a time. I want to go back to when I enjoy creating and doing it very well.
I've felt lost and burnt out for a while and it caused me a lot of trouble and health issues. After my big move (I'm still technically moving since we haven't moved in to the new place yet... long story), things have started to fall back in to place. I'm feeling less stressed and I'm able to focus better.
I got myself a fitbit which helps track my activity levels and sleep. My sleeping is terrible. I know I've always had trouble sleeping; I'm pretty sure I should talk to the doctor about it. I just didn't have a record of how bad it was till now. I'm very inconsistent. I know I work VERY well when I'm rested, but I'm just not getting the rest I need.
Here are things I'm currently working on and will make proper post once I find a bit more time.
My new business is open!
I just opened an alterations and sewing service around the town I live in. There is no seamstress for almost couple of hours highway drive radius, so it's a really cool opportunity for me. I'm hoping that word will spread and I will gain more costumers.
Costume-con Historical costume entry.
I'm working on something original for this convention. It's a huge opportunity to take advantage of as an artist. I have a fairly clear idea as to what I'd like to make. I'm working out the details. I'll draw it out clearly soon and will make a post about my project. I think this will be a great time to really keep track of my works and techniques for everyone to follow.
I really want to get back to making these videos. People really appreciated my last one and I really need to acknowledge that. I'm currently working on one about zippers! I will follow that up with finishing techniques: hemming.
I never thought about it, but I keep myself fairly busy. I've started to recognize just how tight I keep my schedule. People around me has started pointing out that I just never go out and take a break. I'm going to do a better job at time management and giving myself breaks.
Although I find this habit very hard to break....
Thanks for reading! I know it was a long one.
