Monday flow:Staying focus!

Happy Monday, 

Happy  New year!

Back to blogging! It’s been a great few weeks of being recharged and inspired. I finished 2016 strong and wanted to ensure I started the year off right by taking some time to reflect and be inspired from the inside. I am excited for the good things that will happen this year in my sewing and business! I can feel it!  

Started off my first week back on social media sharing about the four words my brand represents. Giving focus to the vision and working towards that! Check out on Instagram. http://www.instagram.com/amshina

Wishing you an awesome week ahead! Stay tune. The sewing chronicles continue…..just keep sewing, just keep sewing, what do I do I sew sew sewwwwwwww!

Creativity: Stir, Shake and let go!

Happy Wednesday!

Have you ever shaken a pop and then opened it after?…For fun… You know exactly what will happen. It will erupt like a volcano. Boooooommmmmmmm!!!!……Pop everywhere…

Like the carbonated beverage that is shaken and then released, so is our creativity. It must be stirred , shaken and then have expression in our lives. 

Whatever it is today that you are passionate about or are yet to discover, may it find expression in the earth and become a contagious contender!

Stir, shake and let go!!!

Just keep sewing, just keep sewing, what do I do I sew sew sewwwwwwww……

God Bless

Sewing: It is about risks right?

First attempt at Pull Strings on a Maxi skirt!!

Whether you are a beginner or an expert the risks involved in sewing any garment is evident. We cannot run from it. When you decide to look at a piece of fabric in it’s plain state and envision a finished garment that is a risk in itself. Won’t you agree?

I say risks because there is no guarantee of its perfection or completeness. Just your vision, your skill and your commitment to see it finished.

We must have heard the different stories of great Artists and Inventors that started projects and made things they never thought would have turned into anything or that were never started as masterpieces but turned out to be. You just don’t know.

Your craft is a gift, and everyday you go to that machine or hand sew a garment you are growing and adding experience to your craft. Taking the risk along signifies something to the believer; it was worth trying.

First top I ever made using a pattern bodice as a base!

So whatever stage you are at in your sewing journey, enjoy it. Bask in it, continue taking risks and challenge yourself. The very potential of your skill is realized in taking risks. How would you ever know that you could make that coat, dress,pant, hat or handbag. You must try.

A little food for thought as you are creative this week…whatever project you are holding off or delaying.. come on now.. don’t take the fun out of learning.. do it!!!

The sewing chronicles continues…
