Weekends are made for productivity

It’s not always to easy to motivate myself on the weekends especially after working all week. I mean who really wants to be working after all the time and being miserable 🤷🏾‍♀️

– I do cause I have goals to accomplish, at least that’s the new mindset. If I want to live the life I deserve got to work towards it “the goal dont work unless you do” and I realized a long time ago perfecting my craft doesnt make me miserable it challenges me to find ways to figure this out. With every garment I’m learning new techniques & lessons; “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10000 ways that won’ t work.”Thomas Edison

With all this being said I am so proud of the progress I’ve made and happy with this latest fitting.

I figured out ways I’m going to tweak the finished product. But I’m a bit clueless how I want to create the top. I was originally thinking an off-the-shoulder crop top, but I’m liking the bandu too….

You have a goal or dream progress is key. What wins did you accomplish this week?/ What are you working for the week ahead?

As always, Thanks for stopping by

The Joy of Completion

#tbt (well it’s not Thursday anymore, point just the same)

Old habits diehard, but I can’t expect those same habits to open new doors either. I’m slowly accomplishing all the projects I have started & the simple quote holds true “There is joy in completion.” I keep that in the forefront of my mind whenever I get the urge to drop something & start a new project.

I have definitely taken necessary steps to ensure my Self-ccarries a priority in life and I’m starting to shed what doesnt work and unhealthy. Little bit of motivation that’s helping me along the way.

In my progression to become a Fabulous Fashion Designer; I must have attempted to construct pants four/five times, with succeeding only once Lol. Constructing these pants from scratch however, has proven to be a more difficult undertaking than I initially thought. But, IT’S NOT IMPOSSIBLE!!! Going along with the saying; “Mistakes are proof that you are trying.” I am going to persevere, working through these mistakes.

Normally when an aspect of my design doesn’t go according to plan; I get frustrated, flustered, and a bit discouraged. At the moment I feel none of these usual negative emotions. After analyzing the circumstances of my latest design mishap, a rush of inspiration has come over me. The cognitive wheels of my imagination are pumping full speed ahead.

I’m deciding to scrap my original idea, going further with what may be an even better concept. {Meaning tomorrow I’ll be due for a quick fabric run.} If the saying holds true; that “all things happen for a reason,” one reason for these reoccurring “stumbles” is to show growth. No longer deterred by self-doubt, through the folds of my evolution of personal greatness I’m learning it’s all a learning experience.

My persistence is key, and giving up is not an option. So onward and upward with Faith, Hard Work, & Dedication.
