Oh goodness it's been a while since I've posted or at least it feels that way. Things have been a little crazy around here to say the least. My husband was away for a bit, so that along with our regular everyday schedule plus me trying to fill up the shop with new items has left me a weeeeeeee bit tired. Oy!
It's amazing how life can all of a sudden go from one extreme to the next. Feeling wonderful and absolutely invincible to feeling 100% completely vulnerable. As you know I'm trying to get the name elliven out there, and it can be tough when people don't love your items as much as you do. I know this is inevitable, I mean, I don't love everything that money can buy, so I shouldn't and can't expect everyone to love my creations. What's important is that
I continue to do what I love and to stay true to myself
because there are people who do and who will love what I make. So I'm constantly reminding myself of this right now, however believing it can be much easier said than done. But, doubt is not allowed.
That being said, I also have to remind myself to take breaks. When frustration looms, step back. When fatigue plagues me, take a breather. It won't hurt the shop, if anything it will do the exact opposite.
So I'm going to take a day or two to breathe....no sewing, perhaps I will get to listing some items from the craft show that never made it to the shop or perhaps I'll being to pair some fabrics for new items.
I'm also totally thrilled to have listed a skinny clutch made with the new Lecien fabric. Did you see it? You can find it here! Perfect for spring.
So, what have you been up to?
