A Year Later

I have been busy this past year, both in and out of SophieChic.

Like all people who create things from their mind, who create with their hands, whose lives pretty much revolve around their craft and artwork, I lost my way a bit.  I used to get so inspired by seeing things other people have created, but somewhere last summer I started feeling very intimidated instead.  I was also getting discouraged over all the new things I was trying because I wasn’t good at any of them!

Well, I’m happy to say I’ve healed my confusion and have been creating things I’m proud of nearly every day!  I cut myself a break and slowed down with introducing new things (I haven’t touched my spinning wheel in over a year, but I’ll get her back out soon) and I’m all the better for it.  My product photography has improved, I’ve stepped up my supply game, and I’ve even published several of my own knitting and crochet patterns!  Here’s a little before-and-after, it’s so strange but also very refreshing to see how far I’ve come.


not too terrible, I know


still learning, but ta-da!


Hang in there, you can do it!  ❤ fauna
