I've had a couple rough weeks, my kids and husband have been getting sick on and off. I've been stuck at home a lot and really overwhelmed. I might be a little vitamin D deficient too. I've just been down. Last week my friend Jess blogged about a sign she made HERE.
The saying really struck a cord with me. I realized it had been weeks since I've sewed or created anything. The joy I have when I create really helps me through rough patches.
The next day I decided I better get going on my daughter's birthday present. Her birthday isn't till the end of next month but I was hoping to make three sets of matching outfits for her new bitty baby twins. My sister found the most amazing deal on a brand new set still in the box. The only problem was that they were naked. The person selling them had only bought them for their clothes. I've got one outfit done. Consider this a sneak peak since I hope to show you five more outfits and the dolls in a month.
When I was done I felt so much better.
Since then I've started on a couple more projects, I'll be showing you soon.
I don't know if you are one of those people who just struggle January and February, but if you are, I encourage you to create. It may mend your soul too.
