My, oh my, how time flies by! I can't believe it's been three years since the day I discovered my true passion. Never in a million years did I think this is where I would be three years later. Pretty crazy how one decision can change your whole view and life, isn't it?
I went into that class with hopes of getting back in touch with my creative side, and hey! I could learn something new to do while the cuteness played his guitar. I was so nervous when I first got there, then I just became intrigued. My teacher was astonished I had never sat behind a sewing machine...she told me I was a natural! ;] I guess that got me going, and I was asking all kinds of questions by the end of the class. I was already asking about the best machine to use when sewing various layers of thick fabric....I guess I knew I wanted to make bags as soon as that class was done and over with! Having a bag obsession definitely helped ;]
It's pretty crazy to think that this one day on December would spark what Sew Beastly is now. I still pinch myself at the thought that I'm doing something I truly love for a living. I cannot even begin at how grateful I am for the amazing friendships I have developed throughout these years. I would've never even met these talented friends if I had never started sewing. That's a pretty scary thought, y'all!!
The immense support I have gotten from you, my family, my friends is what has kept me going this whole time. I am so grateful to have such rad supporters by my side.
Thank y'all for joining me on this journey, I will never be able to thank y'all enough!!
Is there something that you discovered you are truly passionate about? My advice: If you love it, then pursue it! You never know where it's going to take you. Dreams are worth chasing, and I'm glad I chased my handmade dream!
