Inspiration and loose leaf rings...

I got to sew for most of the day today, which was wonderful. I listened to "Hello Hurricane" on repeat nearly all day, with occasional breaks from Sinatra and Michael Buble. I had been getting so inspired on Etsy over the past few days. I was so excited that I couldn't sleep and was jotting down notes and ideas in the dark at 10:30 last night. I had an order to fill for someone: two large wallets and two coordinating small ones. It took most of the day, because I just can't seem to speed up my processes any! It was fun, but making something to sell to a stranger isn't nearly as much fun as sewing for yourself, your family, or people you know. I have a bag I want to make from a Simplicity pattern that's really cute. Tomorrow I'm hitting Joann's to see what they have, and to get some supplies to make a little inspiration book sort of like this one:

I need somewhere I can put my instructions and measurements for the things I sew, along with ideas, inspiration, Christmas lists, and more. And I want to use the loose leaf rings so I can add and take away things as needed. So I'm planning on making one of those little books for my sewing. I'm really excited about going to Joann's. I just want to play around with some projects without having to worry about how they turn out.

Rather boring blog today, but I need to go write for NaNoWriMo! This is getting completely out of hand now, and it's depressing. "Your Love Is a Song" is playing now. That's not depressing. I absolutely love that song; it's probably my favorite on the whole CD so far. I also love "Mess of Me" and "Enough to Let Me Go." Awesome, awesome CD!!

Until next time,
