blogger fraud..

I am sitting here looking at my blog and thinking that I am a fraud. It has been almost a month since I last posted and just feel like, what have I been doing?
I know that life can totally get in the way but is that really it. I sometimes feel that I would just rather live through all of the other blogs that I read and when I get done reading all of them, I sit and think, I can't be that creative. The other thought that I have is that I can make that, but that doesn't seem right either. Can I come up with something original? No, not if I am spending all of my time looking at all the other blogs.
So, here is the true dilemma, do I continue as is, or do I start downsizing my blog list and start living my own life again?
I know that I need to do something because this is not working. I am not sewing, cleaning house, or enjoying my life.
What to do, what to do????

New Years Resolution

OK, I found my book with what I had written down.
So, here goes....
For Business
1. work through storage unit, get rid of items that can't be worked into an outfit.
2. go through pattern cabinet, get rid of patterns that I will never make.
3. work out sewing room to make it more productive.
4. get couple items made per week
5. make a project list every evening for the next day.

For being a Mommy
1. less TV, more creative, education time
2. more consistent discipline.
3 work more about picking up after himself
4. more hugs and kisses
5. less purchases

For being a Wife
1. more hugs and kisses
2. talk things out before action
3. find the passion- release the resentment
4. less purchasing

For Myself
1. eat healthy
2. exercise
3. work harder
4. find passion
5. become happy with self

Seems like alot but if I break it down a little every day, I know that I can do it.

Happy New Year to you all!

Well, today starts the return of a normal schedule. Now don't get me wrong, I love spending time with my husband and son, but I need to have my time back. That and Garrett works much better when he knows that M-W is preschool and T-Th is Twa Que Do classes.

This day is also the day that I am looking at the new year and know that I need to get my resolutions down on public paper so that I have a better chance to stick to them. So, if I could find the book that I wrote them in I would start here. (No laughing out there. I can't find my book) When it is found, I will dedicate one post just for the list.

We had a great Christmas. Even with all the snow, we enjoyed being home and together. With some of my Christmas money, I signed up for 3 months of Weight Watchers Online. Very excited to see where it will take me. I have also purchased the DVD Julie & Julia. Watched it last night while sewing and loved it. Have also purchased a book on Sherlock Holmes stories, we went to the movie, and a book on doll making. Now this is not the big baby dolls, but the artsy looking dolls. Still need to order some Lush and I think that I will have use my Christmas money up.

I also resigned up for 2 more months of wardrobe refashion. I have been working out separate pieces to make sets for little girls. Will take pictures later. Also need to make a DIY child's mannequin to help display the clothes.

I have my Ebay store, Sewing Niche on a 1/2 price sale right now. Taking the month to see what I can sell before closing it down. I have Ebay burn out. So, if you want a great deal on great fabric, come take a look.

Well, I better go and jump on the stationary bike.
Till later
