Can I Escape Perfectionism? Doubtful.

 I don't know about you but I can be a bit of a perfectionist. I love crafting but am always a bit disappointed in myself when something is just a wee bit off. Yes, I try to subscribe to the quilters adage about the only perfect things being created by God. But it's a struggle sometimes. So when I embroidered this tote bag I was a little frustrated that after lining things up and double checking, the S still looks crooked. Then I saw the embroidery pattern in my Etsy account. I didn't make a mistake. It is crooked by design!! I don't know if I have relief (I have relief) or too much concern with having everything close to perfect. Anyway, I'm pretty excited to add these bags to my list of order options. I'll be sharing order opportunities on our Facebook page soon.
I have also been working on these valentine envelopes. I picked up a bunch of them the other day to test them out and I have to admit, I'm pretty obsessed. I love creating something a little personalized for my kiddos. I'm planning to send the boy's valentines to school in the pouch.

Side story: Got the coolest valentines in the dollar spot at Target today! They are those sticky stretchy monkeys on cards saying "I'm bananas for you".

I made one for the girl too. I'm thinking of doing something fun on Valentine's Day morning for the kids..... just need to figure out what. I might make some for the grandmothers too so we can put drawings inside.
If you're interested, I'm taking orders. Hit me up.
