What about me, in short? I just enjoy sewing, it is my hobby and it helps me shut out all the unpleasant aspects of lives. It gives me the opportunity to be creative and to be me, and to do something beyond me. I was always very artistic when I was little; however, I chose to pursue a more realistic profession that would secured a good income. My family was not very wealthy and I made the devotion to myself when I first step onto America to be successfully in life by making a career for myself. That I did after four years of college; my profession is in the Information Technology field dealing with ERP and financial systems.
But, now that I have achieved what I set out to do, I want to get back in touch with my inner creative side. I always knew how to mend things even when I was younger. But I picked up sewing only several years ago (maybe 3 years ago from today, 2012). I ripped apart an Áo Dài (the Vietnamese traditional dress) that one of my friend had forgotten she lend it to me; picked up a sewing book from the library, and start learning how to make one for myself. It grows from there into making my own aprons, clothes, and to my own wedding dress...to here I am.
Yes, I do hope I make money from my crafting and sewing, but even if I don't, I still want to continue nurture this ability I have. It is a must for everyone to nurture their creative side. I believe we are all talented and creative in our own way whether if it has to do with craft or not, and it is important to nurture it as it is part of us, and it lets us..dream! It is important to not loose sight of our imaginations, as for without imaginations, we will not be able to see all these colors in life; it would be a state without progress and dull and boring in just black and white...so to all...dream on and continue to dream and continue to make those dream come true, one shot at a time, one color at the time, and for me..one stitch at a time!
I hope you enjoy reading my rambling thoughts as I show case some of my projects here (that is when I get time to ramble) Read Less
