Today was a day of rises and falls.
After I got off work, I went to the sewing store to look for a serger! I've been wanting to get one for years now but I just havn't been able to make up my mind. I found one I really like today but once again...the price kinda throws me off. Justin keeps telling me it is an investment and as much as I sew...it will pay itself off quickly. He is right but making the decision is still hard for me. Commitment. I gotta commit to a machine.
So I get home today and guess what was at the front door!!! My first package for my shop! It was a big big box full of pillow forms. I was so excited...ecstatic! I got the pocket knife and ripped it open. I was expecting amazingly soft, luxurious down inserts...what I got were cheap feeling polyester cotton filled forms. WHATTTT!!!!!! The first business mistake. I guess it's not really a mistake because I now know what I don't want. But it was still a bit frustrating.
Needless to say, I spent most of the afternoon online, price comparing, calling, and figuring out how to ship back the pillows I was so excited about=) Things like that always take much more time than you hope they will.
THEN...Tonight I bought a frame for some artwork my inlaws got me for Christmas from Urban. I've been waiting on this frame to go on sale and it did so I snatched it right up. I get home, carefully pop up all the little brads on the back, pick up the cardboard insert and crrrAACKKKKK! The glass broke! WHY!!!
I know these things are all really little...but it was a day of excitements and let downs. I guess it makes me realize how impatient I am. I want things to go right...and NOW. Maybe God will use this to teach me patience=)
