Happy Black History Month and a hopefully not too late New Year!
I know, I know, how did we get here?
Well I wish I could say or tell you the exact sequence of events that’s led to now but I would be lying to even try. Nonetheless, we are here and this new year is off to a busy busy start and I find myself in the midst of everything feeling grateful. Still figuring it out but grateful.
It’s February and I am now taking to the sewing machine. Can you believe it? Creatively, it’s been a slow start but I am gradually getting myself together this month with creating as well as setting up my new space. Yes, I have a new space and I need to get organized sooner than later to get things going. A fully functional space has never stopped me before from creating, so I anticipate a slow but intentional start with my creative ideas for Amshina this year.
2022 was not the year I anticipated for my handmade business but I continued to create. My creativity was kept alive by my various pattern and fabric collaborations that were a source of continued inspiration for me in-spite of the slow business. 2022 still had some epic wardrobe memories that made it what it was and just the simple reflection of these are inspirations for the year ahead. I hope you enjoy some of these.
Perhaps 2022 was a year of planting seeds that will bloom in the years to come. I guess there is only one way to find out and that is to show up in 2023 with that same hopeful creative energy. Focused on watering those planted seeds.
It’s time to do the work and I can’t wait to share with you some of the new pieces that I have been dreaming about.
The handmade journey continues and I thank you for being here and sharing this journey with me.
