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.

Often we encounter needlepoint where all the areas of color are small and are scattered. This Rogue Needlepoint canvas is almost a poster child for this. The only areas that are a continuous single color are the words. While most of the colors are used in many places, none of the areas are large. This […]read more
On the last day of the Mimi G Sewing Conference, the entire group hit up LA’s Fashion District to fabric shop. Every city I’ve visited – New York, London, Paris, Atlanta, Miami, etc – does their fabric district differently. In some cities, fabric stores are concentrated in a few blocks or streets; in others, fabric…read more
Hi Readers! I am undoubtedly a dresses girl, but sometimes I want to throw on some slim-fitting jeans. The thing is, when I wear skinny jeans, I don’t want to pair them with a curve-hugging top, and instead want to opt for a longer looser fitting blouse that covers up my mid-section. Yep, I don’t…read more
