No room for doubts


When you start to get busy, it's easy to get sucked into taking short cuts & cutting corners. I started working on my next order yesterday and wasn't 110% happy with one of the materials I was working with. It probably would've been fine and something only I would notice... but it was stressing me out beyond belief! Hillsy reminded me of the importance of addressing doubt. Running a business is hard enough, running it with even an ounce of doubt is not acceptable so I'm heading into the city today in an attempt to source a very specific type of fabric - I really hope I find it!!

I know it seems like a no brainer - but it's something that I think we all need to be reminded of once in a while. You have to be at least 100% behind all of the products you sell, not only the end result but all of the little pieces that make up the whole package - every nook and cranny... the thread, type of glue, etc!

I want to say you're running out to get brown colored organic muslin. Am I right? Do I win anything?

lol Jee - I'm afraid you're only 1/3 correct ;)

It looks kind of heavy or too stiff/tight- is it? What you are lookin' for is something perfect for a mini sackloth which would be less thread?

:0)

too right! In my case, it was about adjusting the things i sold to be more "my style", if that makes any sense! hee....
