I'm really so very happy that today we get to hear from one of my sponsors, Tara, of the blog, Sew Tara. Make sure to get down to the end of the post, because there's a giveaway too!
In a recent email, Tara mentioned that she's been accomplishing a lot lately, and that the ideas just keep coming. Who doesn't love that feeling? So I asked her about that. Specifically, I asked her what brought her to this place, and here's what she had to say:
"You know, I'm not really sure but it's almost like the stars are in alignment or something and there was a CLICK!
I've got a ton of projects 'in progress', or things not even started like online class projects, so it's not like I *needed* to come up with new ideas they're just flowing right now and I'm trying to keep up and run with it! I'll just guess at what's making it happen in case any one else wants to try.
- School ended for the year so I'm on vacation from work! I taught half time so I still had time during the school year but now it's everyday I get to craft.
- We have a routine for our days, get up go to the gym, do something all together, have lunch, Nate naps and Wesley has quiet time and I craft! Once Nate wakes up things are on hold until after kiddies go to bed then I get creative again until the wee hours.
- I surround myself with things that focus on where I'm heading right now, website, magazines, books and stores. I have some creative friend's and it's great to just chat with them about what they're up to as well. Seeing what other people are doing can really help inspire you or just keep you motivated to continue creating.
- I worked hard to put a few more items in my shop and it feels great to see them there and watch the number of views climb, sort of makes it all seem more real.
Not only has Tara shared her experience, but she's also got a passport pocket to share! And see that circle with the question mark? That's where she'll custom monogram it for you! So cute!
