1st Blogiversary

Disclaimer: some of this post, okay a majority of it was written while intoxicated. I guess I really love my blog to think about it when no other thoughts come clearly to me.

Happy anniversary to me! It has been a whole year. 1 whole year. 365 days! I’m amazed with how quickly the time has flown by.

Why did I start this blog? Well I started it to keep track of all my Jamie-made stuff. I think I make a lot of stuff then in reality when you start tracking everything you realize that there’s not that much. I’m lazy. What the heck. Other people are turning out two posts a week. How? What kind of sewing magic do you possess?

I’m also trying to learn. There’s a big difference between RTW cloths and hand-made clothes. I want my clothes to look kind of ready to wear but not so cheap and factory made by the thousand.

I really do enjoy this blog. I like writing about what I make, the infuriating parts of sewing as a newbie (zips, instructions, ripping everything apart a zillion times) even though I lie to people and say I’m an intermediate sewist. The only part I really find trying of the blog is the pictures. Are there enough? Are there too many? What the hell is that face I’m making?

Hopefully this year will be better than the last. I’ve got a better handle on the whole blog thing. I participated in my first Me-Made-May. I made a pair of pants. Which I still need to totally make more. I’ve bought the Jamie Jeans pattern. Which, hello! I’m Jamie so I need the jeans pattern intended for me! So hopefully we’ll see that soon.

What else does this year have in store? Well a big move across country but we can talk about that more later. A lot more sewing hopefully a better selection of fabrics. My bestie lives in LA and I heard they have a killer fabric district.

Can I also say I’m terribly jealous of Lladybird and all her bras? Totally strange comment but her bra making skills are crazy! Buying cheap, crappy bras that last a few months isn’t doing it for me.

Lots of random thoughts, but exciting none the less. I know I talk a lot about my sewing but there’s always a few odds and ends thrown in. Pinterest: Success or Fail are some of my favorites to do. Is it bad when I enjoy that things go badly? I think it makes the post much more interesting with my ranting and raving.

Hopefully some more crafts. The last big one I did was the River Song diary. I just haven’t been inspired lately to make something in that realm of making.

Big thanks goes out to everyone that follows me, checks in frequently (or not so frequently) or accidentally stumbled onto my blog on their way to someplace else! Can’t wait for another year of crafty fabulousness!!!
