A New Adventure

Hi there and happy Friday. First up is a quick share of some new boxed card sets I have put in my MadeIt store - SweetSimplicitee. I just love making simple and beautiful stationary sets for gifts, I love the simplicit{ee} of the patterned paper being the feature, so I thought I would add them to my store, as they are always treasured as gifts amongst my family and friends...












Next up is something I have "ummed" and "ahhhed" over for a long time. I love to sew, however, I have kept the bulk of my sewing treasures close and used them as gifts and such, with the exception of the odd fabric handbag here and there. I have wanted to begin selling my sewn items for a while, but have been worried that I won't be taken seriously if I have too many creative interests. The bottom line though, is that I do need to stop worrying about what other's may think, and simply do what I love to do, I love to potter with both fabric and paper... I cannot choose a favourite, I love both, I have 'fabricy' days and 'papery' days, I go through stages of buying up lots of gorgeous designer fabrics, then days where I snaffle up every new stamp on the market. My creativity simply can't be tamed to one or the other, so I choose both. I may fall flat on my face in all my creative endeavours, or one, or both may float along beautifully, the thing is that I just don't know until I have a go. So today, I have launched my new MadeIt store SweetStitching. I am just taking baby steps at first, and we'll see what happens.

Sorry about the blur... they look much prettier in the store ♥
  
Thanks for joining me in this adventure, see you next time.

They look great! I love the bright patters, especially the animals in http://www.madeit.com.au/detail.asp?id=296635 :) ~Laura (Moags)

Good for you! I think you'll do wonderfully but the fact you're giving it a crack is the part you should be proud of. Hope all is lovely :)
