When I first Started Tracking my Progress and Blogging it up for you all.
I had a Campaign Booklet from my Photo shoot filled with Little Post-it Tabs. Dozens of Notes, from Fabrication changes to alterations, Cost and Priority. Every little thing you can possibly imagine that had to do with revisiting the Collection and ensuring it is ready for Fashion Week was written there.
A Few Days Ago, I opened up this booklet and Noticed that there were only Two tabs remaining.
One was for that Lovely new bustier you have all been reading about, and the second was for my Body suit that is yet to be completed.
As I sit here and write this I think WOW ! Have I really been that organised ? Have I really been able to manage and delegate everything so smoothly yet stressfully that I am kind of on track ? I actually have a slight buffer ?
I can only think one thing in this moment, that I have missed something, perhaps something hasn’t been sewn ?
That is a natural Reaction. It’s similar to leaving the house in a rush and you keep trying to think of that one thing you think you’ve forgotten.
In this case, I’m not even sure what it is. Quite honestly, I think I’m trying to freak myself out. it all feels a little too surreal.
My sewing Notes may be coming to an end but the admin prep side and business and marketing side haven’t even began. I’m not sure whats more scarier – all of that or just having things to sew !?
I know I keep saying this but I honestly cannot believe how quickly time is going by. I feel like I have to document every second of it, every feeling, every mood, every bit of success and perfection.
I wish I could put it all in a jar or one of those Snow Globes, Each with a different setting, so I can look at them and remember how I felt at that exact moment.
I want to Thank every one ! Honestly, from the bottom of my heart, I appreciate everyone’s support, everyone’s contributions that are helping me get through this ! We aren’t all born in a mansion, rich and famous but what we do have in common is the ability to dream, have goals and to take the reigns and soar !
With The help of 16, Selfless, Charitable kind Contributors I have so far raised $805. These funds have gone towards all the high quality, luxury materials that I needed to remake certain pieces from my Collection, as well as the first 10 hours of machining.
For the Next lot of contributors, the funds will go towards the next lot of machining, as well as Preparing for our Photo shoot . I will then look at what is next for Priority.
