I decided to do something creative each week. I have lots of ideas in my head to be awesome. I am trying to follow through with some of them.
Do one creative thing each week – create something with my hands.
Exercise 3x a week – more, if I’m able to. It’s starting to get a tad warmer (30′s) in Michigan.
Make dinner a few times a week. What once was simply a burden is not.
Grow my business with It Works Global. I’m eager to start making even more money outside of work. I have to figure out some realistic goals to surpass the Ruby level.
My creative thing this week was on a whim. I decided my first sewing project would be a dog bed. My dog Beesly’s old bed was bleeding on the carpet, turning it pink. So Peanut I went to Jo-Ann Fabrics, charmed all of the staff, and walked out with some materials to make a dog bed.
The players: 2 yards of red and 2 yards of deep purple chevron
cotton fabrics, 4 yards of white muslin, and polyfill
I have a Singer Talent machine. I relearned how to thread it from this YouTube video (she’s adorable).
I chose the deep purple for her pillow. I pinned and sewed one side. Then I move it, pinned and sewed. It wasn’t beautiful, but I was proud I did it!
Sewed and pinned the third side. Then I decided to stuff the pillow first to decide how full to make it, then sewed the last side closed. It was hard and kinda ugly. So if I was doing it again, I would have taken the stuffing out, sewed it almost all of the way, then stuffed it up to not make it so ugly (top side). Oh well, just a dog bed upstairs in my bedroom.
Beesly seems to like it.
