Sewing is a lot like life...sure, there are patterns for just about everything, but in order to love what you do, or love what you make, you have to change the pattern to make it your own regardless if the change is a fraction of an inch or the length of a yard. And more often that not, those choices you make to change the pattern do not work out exactly the way you hope. It can be frustrating and challenging, and sometimes you have have to rip it all apart at the seams and start completely over. Which requires patience. A lot of patience. But in doing so, you create something that is far more rewarding, and far more beautiful, then what you started with.

Oops I did it again! Treasury Time!

I had so much fun creating my first Etsy Treasury last week (read about it here) I decided to do it again! I am thinking about creating one a week through the holidays, so stay tuned to see if something from your fun shop is included!

Set of 5 Vintage Earring Pushpins


Interested in seeing the handmade goods from Handmade for the Holidays Treasury #1? Click here! I was so excited to see that 5 of the 12 items have sold since last week! Exciting!

And don't forget! When you do make a handmade purchase this season, blog about it and link it up here for everyone else! Happy Handmade Shopping!

  1. I need to find time and energy to shop - either online or in a store. Sheesh. I'm tired.

    BUT...I am considering making a homemade book to give the grandparents. Will include photos and then stories written by TO. We'll see if I get some ambition.

    You inspire me to shop around though, and find handmade treasures.
