Well, my resolution last year was to blog more often, I think I said once a week which, good intentions aside, didn’t quite happen. But I did blog more this past year than ever before so this year. Since I hate to set myself up for failure, this year’s resolution is to blog more this year than last. That’s totally doable right??
I don’t often admit this but it’s hard work, balancing being a mom, a wife, working full time, running Beri Bee (which is a combination of sewing for others, pattern testing and reviewing, fabric testing, helping with Betsy Button) plus opening a new local studio to be able to share the skill and knowledge of sewing with others and then keeping up with the blog. WHEW!!! Putting it all out in writing makes me think I might be a little insane, but I love it all, it’s who I am, and I can’t imagine giving any of it up.
I noticed a few things over the last year, things that stick out in my mind that I want to change or improve. I have been working alot on my photography and this year i’m adding an indoor studio, I’m so excited to have this as an option when it’s cold. Our sewing studio (CBMSewing & Design) has moved into a new space and we are working hard to get things organized to open our class schedule in the next month or so. I also found that I am so much happier sewing what and when I want, so I’m going to be limiting my custom requests this year and sewing more items that are ready to sell which will hopefully give me a little more time to sew for myself and my own kids (who generally get left out).
That brings me to my awesome share for today…. my year in review (the photo version). One thing I noticed is my little guy gets left out way more than Ry so I’m going to be stepping up my boy game for him this year for sure! (all but a few of Reid’s pics are mom-made items… hence having to step up my game, haha) This starts in January of 2015
Don’t mind my loud, pathetic sobbing while I realize how much my baby boy has grown up over the last 12 months… he hardly looks like a baby anymore 😦
And now for Ry –
So there you have it… Our year of sewing, changes (big and small) and what’s in store for Beri Bee over the next year.
BIG thank you to all my friends, family and fans that make everything I do possible – love you all!!
