Change Ahead

Thursday, September 30, 2010

If we don't change, we don't grow. If we don't grow, we aren't really living.

You guessed it, change is coming! It's been nudging me for awhile, but I've come to realize that in some ways I've outgrown bits of my shop, my process, & and my interest.  When I look back at my posts throughout the summer I can see hints of transformation...maybe it was taking a second look at How Lucky I Am or Finding Inspiration  but I'm looking to move forward.  My husband even somehow read my mind & asked whether my shop was in need of a makeover. So perhaps others have felt it too...
 
What changes am I planning? A look the resonates more with who I've become & what I create. A line of lovelies that really speak to what I am passionate about creating.  A focus on the time to develop & design & make- all aspects of the process I enjoy so much.  A reevaluation of my methods.
 
I am so excited to share this process of polishing, trimming, improving, remodeling, and growing...and look forward to all that lays ahead!

Allisa - Good luck with your changes. I think change is so necessary or else we'd all just be dull. Can't wait to see what more you do!

Hi, I think change sounds really good. for my it's usually really painful at first but turns out a very good idea after the event. for example starting to clean regularly...
my shop needs new inspiration too but i got no idea where to go right now.
