This is just a little reminder to myself to…
I wish I knew where that saying originated, because it really is the only way to keep sane, online or off.
I do not write about all the “insides” of my family on this blog and I can only offer glimpses into my real life. However, I will readily confirm that those glimpses will never include the following:
- How I serve up organic, whole grain, locally grown, well rounded meals to my family three times a day, and involve my children in the preparation of them. (Hey, kids! Guess what! We are having chicken nuggets for dinner again!)
- How serving my family by cleaning and doing laundry pushes me to grow in holiness. (Or how letting the house fall into utter chaos can teach me about humility.)
- How to fashionably dress your children by shopping thrift stores, garage sales, and end-of-season clearance racks. (What? You grew again? Didn’t we just buy you 5 shirts from Walmart?)
- Details on homeschooling my four and five year old and providing creative seasonally-appropriate educational activities for all my children. (OK, kiddos. Paper, crayons, scissors, glue stick. Have fun! But don’t bother mommy right now. She’s sewing until Duncan gets home from school.)
- Working in exercise and proper diet into a busy schedule. (Unless you count lugging around a 20+ pound-er as exercise and nursing as a weight-loss program.)
- Restoring our almost 100 year old house faithful to the style of that period. (HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!)
While I may be able to pull off some of these things some of the time, I am not able to do them regularly and with passion. I am fine with that though. There are plenty of other blogs out there that talk about such things, and plenty of women that do those things well. Well done, sisters, may I learn from your wisdom.
What is this blog about though?
SewFearless.com is about a reckless pursuit of the sewing craft. It is about not letting your fears talk you out of your dreams. It is a place to go for encouragement, information, and sewing camaraderie. It’s a place where “done” is better than “perfect”, and where saying “I didn’t try” is worse than “I failed”.
So, come as you are. You are welcome here.
