Bring On 2017!

My wish for my blog this year is to reach new members and sustain those that have already joined my journey.  In my “perfect blog world” each viewer would walk away taking with them at least one of the following:

A Smile: Each day, you should smile and giggle at least one time.  Did you know that the average child laughs 3oo times per day? That is incredible! If I can provide a little comic relief to someone’s day through my entries then 2017 will mentally be a tremendous year for many of you!

A Piece of New Information: Whether it’s acquiring insight on a technique, product, or one of my life experience’s as a quilter, hopefully, you will gain a little bit of education on various topics.  Should I succeed in sharing more than a little bit of new information than KUDDOS to both of us!

A Platform to Voice Your Thoughts:  Yes, I want to hear from you! I learn so much from those that follow my blog.  Your comments, and questions fuel my ideas and drive me to further grow both professionally and personally.   I greatly  appreciate all those that take the time to give me feedback.  Trust me, I learn so much from the thoughts that you all share.

SO BRING ON 2017!

AND 

May 2017 bring all my followers twelve months of learning, living, and loving their passion for quilting.

What To Wear?

Ah the world is such a comfy, warm and lovely place when I am able to stay in my PJ’s for lengths of time that go beyond 8 a.m.  Yet, reality has a funny way of telling me that my wearing fleece bottoms and tops with the graphics of clouds and sheep cutely printed throughout would not be professional.  I suppose even a drive to the post office deserves a little more thought in attire.

When it comes to working in the studio I still like the idea of feel comfortable.  Just as I need to feel comfortable with my machines, what I wear for quilting, creating templates and the million other details of running my business has me choosing sweat pants and a t-shirt.  I often feel  a tad frumpy when I see Drea enter the studio dressed in business casual attire from her full-time job and I look down at my favorite yoga pants and zip up hoodie.  The feeling doesn’t last but mere moments because Drea always takes a glance at my “dress code” and says “I would love to be dressed like that! Maybe I’ll keep a pair of sweats here so I can change out of my uncomfortable clothes.”

To make us both happy I suggested we think about instituting a dress up day and a PJ day.  She doesn’t realize my idea of dress up day is dresses, not business casual.

Do you need to be in super comfy like me when you are working? Or do you have another go to fashion that has become your closet staple?
