While under stay at home orders I spend most of my time trying to figure out how to keep this business alive. Honestly, it can get overwhelming because I had so many amazing projects, collections and experiences planned for you all this year. Now, I'm here just figuring out how to stay in the game. These last few weeks have been tough, but this week I decided to add to my never-ending to-do list: Create for creativity.
I had mixed feeling about it too. You would think a designer would be excited to carve out time just to design, cut and sew. But a part of my felt like I didn't have the time. I should be figuring out strategies and pivoting marketing plans... But this week I decided to close the computer, planner and notebooks to just create.
To be honest, I felt so much better when I was done. Of course, the next thought was - should I sell them, do I post them, what do I do with them? I’m a mess…lol, but I’m glad I spent some time doing this. It reminds me of why I started. It also reminds me how bad I need my assistant and factory back!
