This might not be a fun post. There probably won't be any pictures. There won't be any tutorials. This means no one will read it because most people only read blogs for pictures or tutorials. I have a few exceptions.
There will be a massive to-do list that I can't seem to get done. And it's of no fault of my own. I keep saying that I want my business to be successful, but I really don't know how I'd make it work if it was. I hate sewing when I get off work (keep in mind, I get home at 11PM, not 6PM). I feel like I should be spending that time with Hubs even though he's usually half dead. I'm also tired and usually ill when I get off work, and when I'm tired, I make mistakes. And that makes me more ill. My last sewing project I tried after I got off work ended up being thrown across the room and a few various other things were kicked around the room. And I was covered in velvet fuzz. I still have a bad taste in my mouth from that.
So...I don't sew after work. I don't sew before work either because I can't ever finish anything.
Anyway. Here's my to-do list for this weekend and the next few weeks.
~5 wallets for various customers (3 black for my Mother-in-law, 1 purple and yellow for one of my middle schoolers, 1 blue brown and green for a friend at work)
~Make-up bags for the shop and potentially a wholesale order for a friend who owns a hair salon
~Curling Iron/Flat Iron covers for the hair salon
~Fold over flap bags
~Gift Card holders for Christmas
~My Dress for the mountains
~Figure out wholesale costs for most everything in my shop
My plan is to design patterns and figure wholesale costs this evening at work. Then tonight I'll draft out the patterns onto posterboard and cut fabric. Then maybe I can plug and chug at the actual construction tomorrow.
Sorry again for a boring post. But I feel like I needed to get that off my chest. I'm sure I'm forgetting something too. I'll be the last to know.
