Famous Footwear is challenging everyone to stepforward by championing their confidence to be their best self. For me, everyday is a mini stepforward towards a career and being a better mother. Honestly, the second I hit 30, aka when I stopped my year long blog hiatus, was the second I dropped 70% of my doubt, insecurities, the things that held me back mentally from reaching my goals. For years and years that I blogged, I earned nothing while working 60 hour weeks, I often compared myself to others which didn’t help, I didn’t think I was good enough, I couldn’t focus on being a mother, often stressed and upset, my life didn’t “look perfect” because I didn’t have the funds or energy, even though I blogged for years, I still didn’t know the ins and outs, tips and tricks of it all. I was being left behind. Hence the year long, much needed, hiatus. I wanted to focus on being a mom and not being stressed. It was supposed to last about a month but it lasted a year. A year of reevaluating, pondering, growing, focusing on family, sewing for the fun of it – my thoughts/feelings/actions started to switch. I had more confidence, less self-doubt and the Gusto to start it all back up again and this time let it be fun with feelings of excitement and motivation towards my goals in life. This time around blogging/sewing/building a brand has helped me be a better mother! Which I thought was crazy. I’ve done a big overall stepforward with more self confidence in my career and as a mother.

For me, old techie that I am, the disconnect between needlepoint and information has always been a baffling one. In the tech world of my previous working life there was a saying: Information wants to be free. Now you can put many different interpretations on that, but one thing is true: information wants to be […]read more
The title says it all really. La Maison Victor magazine has just released its virgin version in English! This is exciting news and I can imagine not a small task to create an entirely english version of an already established sewing magazine. But they did and we are luckier for it! Just last year, I […]read more
