It was something I needed today!

THE ARTIST’S SURVIVAL KIT

the artist's survival kit

“For the really bad days, for the days when you want to quit, when you feel like everything you do is shit, when you feel your self-esteem plummet, when you decide that you would rather wait tables for a living, when you start to think you will never make a living making art, when you are working on something and feel like you hate it more than you’ve ever hated anything in your life, when someone makes an offhand remark about your work and afterwards you feel dejected, when you wish you had gone to school for accounting, when you start to believe that maybe your family was right, when you want to lie in bed for a month and eat chips.

It pays to have a sense of humor.

The artist’s survival kit offers some help.” By Keri Smith (THANKS! RPT)

If you have these days I hope this will help.

Making something for my shoes – week-end DYI

Going back to reality after very short holidays is very difficult. I am sure it is a very common feeling. Fortunately the rainy weather with gray days is helping in this process.

Making a small fast things is helping as well. So I decided to make a shoe inserts for my pumps. I have already had one pair which I find very useful – it keeps my shoes in shape.

I use it as an example to make a pattern. The making process is very simple.

Shoes inserts - making pattern, pattern making, canvas, DYI

I used canvas as a basic fabric. In this case I use some pieces I had over after making few muslins.

Stoffen Spektakel Fall 2014 agenda

You notice that the end of holidays season is approaching when you start getting information on Fall events. This one came today - Fall 2014 agenda of Stoffen Spektakel (Fabric Market).

The one in Apeldoorn will be on 29th October – still some time to make planes for new fabrics, garments, accessories – and time to put some money aside.

Stoffenspektakel Fall 2014 Agenda

I will for sure visit my favourite stands with fabulous fabrics.

It would be as well great opportunity to meet with other bloggers and have a cup of coffee/tea. Just let me know. I will probably go first to Zwolle on 24th September to check what’s new.

Welcome August Welcome Holidays

Naming it Holidays is maybe too big – we have just 1 week off, but we deserve it. We – I mean me and my DH. He was sick last few weeks and still he is not feeling great. I hope this week off will help to relax and charge batteries.

We are not going far away – we both travel enough for our work.
Being in love with Waddenzee – and sharing passion for sailing – we have rented a sailing yacht for this week. Wander in a camper was great but we both were missing sailing.

We always rent sailing yachts with a lift keel so we can run dry. This year we have rent Feeling 36 for the first time at the new company Sailingcentre and we are both very curious about this new yacht.

The pictures of Feeling 36  are very promising …

Short summary – July

July started for me with a big step – Red Point Tailor is now officially registered in a Chamber of Commerce. It feels good and stimulates to follow-up with my plans/goals. Good reason to celebrate!

I was occupied with many different things – not so much sewing though. I was following different online courses for crafters, small businesses, jewelry makers – I will fo sure write about them soon, networking, meetings. I am working on re-styling my website – it is taking ages. Maybe it is time to call for help even though I like to do this.
I have manged to finish the Burda Retro top – I still have to take pictures, and I started on new pencil skirt from linen. I have few potential clients for courses – promising.

In between I am enjoying reading the posts from other bloggers – it motivates and inspire me. Thanks!
