First off, I would like to apologize for my month-long hiatus. Some personal matters arose that needed to be addressed, and I haven’t been able to think clearly. But I am back, so I hope you’re ready to hear more about my boring life.
I recently read a blog post by Anna Hrachovec, a knitting designer. She talked about leading a stop-motion workshop and I thought it sounded kind of fun. So, sense I’m an introvert and don’t feel like finding a workshop that’s local, I am going teach myself this sacred craft! I mean, it can’t be that difficult, right?
I have to admit, I’m a little envious. Anna is so creative, and her designs are so cute. Compared to her, I feel like I’ll never succeed as a designer. Gosh, look at me being all whiny. It honestly doesn’t matter if people buy my patterns or not. Sure, it’d be nice if I could make this into a career, but I’m not going change my style just so people will like them.
I’m not stupid. I know there are things that draw the eye more than others. But if I don’t make what I want to make, I feel like I would be lying to myself. I wouldn’t be proud of my creations; I’d hate them. Making patterns is something I enjoy and I want to keep it that way. Even if it means that it’ll forever be just a hobby.
