project make something. I thought I would just do a post about it here, and then I can refer all the questions to this post!
Q: Are you still working on your project to make something?
A: Yes. I have been working on this project since February, and get 4 to 6 projects in the mail each month. Sometimes more, sometimes less. Having said that, I am only roughly 1/4 of the way through the list.
Q: Did you forget about me/take me off your list?
A: NO!!! Like I said above, it is just taking me time to get through the list. I have a husband, two small children, a house, a garden, and just life in general that comes first. This is my hobby, not my job. Please, please be patient with me.
Q: Can you make me the exact same thing as what I saw on Instagram/your blog/Pinterest/etc?
A: Maybe. You can always ask. I am trying to accommodate everyone's tastes and wishes, but I am also trying to stretch my wings and make new things each time I make something.
Q: Are you only doing embroidery? What about drawings or painting?
A: It has been embroidery heavy, simply because embroidery can be taken with me where ever I go. Much more easily than painting or even drawing. And with multiple summer trips coming up, I have a feeling embroidery will still be my go-to something to make.
Q: I'd like to buy something. Do you have a shop?
A: Not yet. I was hoping this project would help me create a discipline that I could use when opening a shop. I'm still working on that discipline, so I'm thinking that sometime in Autumn I will try my hand at an Etsy shop. No guarantee, though.
Q: Can I get on the list?
A: Not anymore, I am so so so very sorry. Look. I thought I could just chug away at crossing off the list, but my list was doubling faster than I could make something, so I had to put a deadline on it back in March. I hope that when my shop is opened, you can get exactly what you wanted.
Q: Is this a gimmick for a shop you're opening? Is this advertising?
A: Not really. I'm hoping that I will have built a little more exposure by the time I open a shop (IF I open a shop) but I started this project to keep my hands busy, and to spread a little bit of happiness. That is my hope, anyway.
Q: Are you crazy?
Q: Can I send you something in return?
A: Of course! But I also encourage you to send something on to someone else who might need a little cheering up, or just a happy surprise.
I hope that answers everything. If you do have another question, feel free to ask, and I can update this post. Thanks for all the questions and interest in my project, friends!
