It has been a busy few weeks preparing the new collection, shooting photos and trying to stay on top of everything; I have had very little time to share the process!!
Between being a Photographer, Accountant, Model, Sewer, Knitter, Designer.... my mind is always running and I am constantly questioning weather or not I'm even going in the right direction. The hardest part of my day is trying to find balance between knitting and the small biz stuff. Anyone who has seen me work will often wonder how I get any work done! They're partly right, it's a miracle if I can complete a hand full of tasks in a day!... however I must say:

I love learning new skills and I am my own worst enemy when it comes to taking on too many projects but I would not have it any other way. My Mother ( Momma Phan) is ULTRA conservative. She prefers to complete one project at a time and is pretty firm in her methods of learning. Together it is a battle of old v.s new and while it is not perfect it works. The one thing that we always remind remind each other is that even if we fail, we have to be brave and try or else we will never know.
Last week I came across an article on creative thinking. It describes how creative thinking can be thought of as an act of bravery. For all you creatives out there it is an amazing read and hopefully it inspires you to be brave and keep fighting for your dreams!How to Cultivate a Creative Thinking Habit
