Yes, I realize that I have put up zero posts in between this week and the last Sunday Lately. I’m using Katy from Wild and Wanderful’s prompts weekly as the reminder that this site exists for a reason. Sewing and creating is my passion. While this site does generate some income, that’s not the sole purpose of it, unless some awesome brand wants to sponsor some things and then I’m all like,
Sunday Lately .::. Embarking
This week I’m back into pattern testing full force which means I’ve been embarking on some new patterns! This is always exciting for me because I love the pattern companies I’m testing for this year.

And now I’m experimenting with this as an income generator doing something I never thought of until a friend asked me to make her one. So cryptic since I haven’t named it, right? The obvious (and something I AM working on) is sewing classes/lessons but that’s not what I’m talking about here. I’m talking about customized bullet journals! Yep! I am making her a
