Crafters ritalin?

Do they have Ritalin for crafters and sewers? I think I need some. I'm all over the place with things I want to create but feel I should concentrate on just a few key things and make them really superb. But you also have to do what you love right, and when I see a new fabric and get inspired I just have to run with it. I LOVE cargo pants for myself and so have started with a new pattern for girly cargos. I'm going to play with some fabric combos and sizes now.

Right now I'm trying to find my 'voice'...that's what writers do, what do sewers do??? Find my 'stitch'? Naw, I'll work on that. Anyhow I'm obsessed lately with the Quit your day job entries on Etsy http://www.etsy.com/storque/search/tags/quit-your-day-job/ everyone on Etsy seems so much more talented than me. I figure maybe with some hard work I can be half of what some of these people are :)

Okay well off to work on my day job. Blah

A little hippy

So I have a few great tank tops that just don't look right now. The 'girls' change a little after having a baby :) I didn't have the heart to throw them out so I trasnformed them, upcycled them, into little tops and dreses for Myah Papaya.

Guess I should have taken a before picture though....

First post

Well at the suggestion of a few others I've started this blog. I create. I always have and get a lot of kooky ideas, some turn into actual 'things' some just hang out in my idea book. I really started creating more after the birth of my daughter as I wanted to create kewl and different things for her.

So...I'll get my butt in gear and post some pics and start posting some of my projects and ideas and see where that goes.

I wonder how many blogspots have an entry called "first post" probably thousands...how unoriginal of me.

I'm working on new fall items (yes fall as it will take a while to ramp up) for my Etsy shop
