Create, Create...

This sewing thing is getting really interesting.  I'm realizing it's like baking. 
Measure, measure, measure...
I'm learning, slowly but surely.
To err is human, right?
To err in sewing, can cost you like 45mins, but definitely lesson learned.
It's ok to make mistakes, as long as we learn from them...and not do
them again.

Rise to the Challenge

In life, there are challenges.  What makes the difference is if we, as individuals, are able to rise to the occasion.
If we are able to look deep within ourselves and put forth our best effort.  If we can set aside our fear of failure or fear of success or fear of rejection...and just do.
Most of the time the biggest hinderance we have is ourselves.  We are our own worse critics and worse enemies.  We fear so much on a daily basis, that we are not aware of it...not aware that we never follow our gut instincts because of security...because of what is safe.
Success is not safe, happiness is not all has to be earn and cared for and is part of life.  But if you stay in you'll be safe...but will you be or do anything else?

Thank you Emma for the Challenge...WE are ready.

Support - S A L A M A T P O * Thank you

I find myself saying, "Thank you," a lot these days and I think it's great.  Jen and I appreciate all the support we've been getting everyone.  It's all very humbling.  But it's still surprising at the amount of support that we are getting.  You do your thing and you hope that at the very least, you don't offend anyone in the process. 

When people take real interest, when they say, "Hey, can you make me this?"  Without even seeing what we can make and do, We can...or at the very least, try our best.  But is trying your best, the same as doing your best?

With the confidence and interest that people have shown in our skills that aren't even yet so defined...all we can say is thank you.  For believing in us and in what we do.

Happy New Year Everyone!

I hope everyone has a great year!  It may not always be easy, but it's not for nothing.
Even when it seems like it isn't for anything, it is. 
We just have to be clever enough to figure out what that is.  Life doesn't get planned,
it happens.  It's the right now, not ten minutes from's NOW.
Life's not the perfect 2X2 screen shot, it's you taking the picture.
