I've Been Working...

   Yes, I've been working.

   Last year I started to have issues with my health, with my back to be more specific. I couldn't sew one day without feeling like I wouldn't be able to stand up on my feet the next. As I lose weight I feel much more capable of sewing for days on a row without fatiguing. I've lost 43 pounds but I'm a little stalled right now because I'm incorporating gluten-free foods (which are a little higher in carbs than I would normally eat) to my low carb diet.

   Now I feel that the effort is worth everything because this is what I love to do most: sewing.


...and I've been sewing A LOT. This is just part of what I've made these past 2 weeks, I'm working full time stocking up for future events. <3

    1. My sewing is not perfect at all Suki. I still have a LOT to learn and practice, I lost a lot of time when I couldn't sew. You have no idea how happy I am now that I can work full time on passion. Have an awesome weekend!

    1. Thank you! I learned to sew through all the awesome sewing and crafty blogs that I follow. Let me know if you want to give it a try, I could give you some tips and recommend you some of my favorite blogs.

      I have an Etsy store but I haven't listed these clutches there. Let me know if you are interested in any of them and I could list it on Etsy for you.

  7. Yadira they look great! Very bright and colorful! I hope your back gets better soon. I don't know if this helps, but yoga is great for strengthening your back.

    1. I'm glad you like them! <3 Thanks for your kind wishes and words. I've thought about yoga but I still need to lose more weight so I can be fit for a class.

  8. Okay, first of all, Yadira, these bolsas son lindas! Really cute & I might need to buy one. Please let me know when they're on etsy! I have a huge collection of little purses & can always use another.

    And 43 lbs. You go, chica! Nothing wrong with being hefty, but I think healthy is better. The roommate & I are also dieting & trying to get to the gym more. And we are doing better since Xmas. Here's to success for all!

    1. Thank you Bella! Of course I'll let you know when they're available on Etsy. I hope one of my purses gets to makes its way into your collection. ;)

      Yes 43 lbs!!! <3 I love my body but I also love to do many things and my back was giving me serious trouble doing that. Keep me up to date with your progress. Thanks for the kind wishes.

  9. You lost 43 lbs??!!! Wow, how I wish I could have the discipline to do that. But those sacrifices really paid off. You were able to unleash more of your creative side. It opened more opportunities for you.
