Getting back into my element

May 22, 2018

Hello beautiful readers!

I would say it’s been a minute but that would be quite the understatement.

Life really comes at you fast and I’m slowly coming to realize that if you don’t make time for the things you love and value then parts of you will slowly fade away without you knowing it.

This is my promise to myself that I’ll make time for the things I value. Although I’ve read a theory that once you announce your plans to others, you feel like you’ve achieved them already. So let’s hope that’s not the case.

This week I’ve really felt like I’m out of my element. I like to divide my life into 5 spheres. Spirituality, relationships, passions, career and health. This week I’ve been feeling like none of them are at the state I want them in. So I’ve basically decided to tackle each one at a time, taking my sweet time to get back into my element. To do the things that once challenged me and made me happy.

One such thing is blogging. And of course, sewing! I don’t want to feel like my life is on auto pilot and I do not have control of everything happening around me. So I whipped out and dusted my sewing machines and made something! Yay! I made this beautiful double sided half coat. I love how I can envision something in my head and then see it come into fruition!

I’ve always wanted one of these coats! They look so cool! I had various pieces of fabric and I wanted one in each so I decided why not make a double sided half coat! Maryanne, you genius, you! I like sewing cause it really challenges you! You have to picture the finished product before making it. In this case, trying to understand how to make this double sided outfit took me a looong minute! But I finally figured it out. What do you guys think? I personally LOVE it!
