For me, life is about passion. Doing what you love, creating what you love, listening to your instincts and following them.
If you share this philosophy with others, then it's contagious. Don't take no for an answer, just have a plan and figure out a way. No excuses.
Go for it.
Why I do what I do....
Someone once asked me why I make handbags, etc. (The list is too large to put into words) Besides the fact that it is an obvious obsession and I can't stop doing what I do , the answer is really simple. Not only do I adore fabrics, but I love the process of combining colors and patterns. This became even more obvious on the last bag I made. I was in the fabric store yesterday for hours searching for the perfect lining for my latest creation. It didn't matter how long it took. It had to be perfect. And luckily, I think it was.
Actually, I don't know what I would do without my passion. So, I think I'll just keep doing what I do.
