Today it is time to put my money where my mouth is!
Today is the beginning of my posts on going WHYLD! Most people spell it wild, but my spelling stands for What Have You Learned Dorothy? That is the question the scarecrow asked Dorothy at the end of her adventures, and that is the question we should ask ourselves each night. OK, so I will start with Lesson #1 from last night’s focus on sewing and crafting. Please add your own lessons learned to help inspire others and maybe teach others a thing or two. Martha Stewart says, “It’s a good thing (AGT).” ABC says America’s Got Talent (AGT too). But, I say, “One good thing (OGT)” a day. Don’t get overwhelmed at learning it all in a day; just focus on one good lesson a day. If no lessons come to mind, maybe you could share what you learned about yourself today. Happy learning and teaching others!
What I learned last night:
I organized my craft room to the point where I could have room to work and get inspired. I watched a YouTube video on how to make a scrunchy. Check out The Woodland Elf’s post on How To Make a Hair Scrunchy. It was only 4 minutes and 30 seconds. I cut out my 3 x 18 inch fabric piece, sewed the long sides together, worked for what seemed a lifetime to get the right sides on the outside, cut my elastic, scrunched it into the fabric pipe, sewed the elastic and two sides closed, and voila! I learned:
a. You really should cut a fabric piece 5 x 18. This way, more of the fabric is showing, and you won’t get as frustrated turning right sides out.
b. I am not a perfectionist, and my desire to just get it done wins over getting it perfect every time. Done/finished beats perfection.
c. I love to start and finish something. By tidying up a bit before the project and putting away supplies after the project, I am jazzed to create something else. Less clutter leads to more creativity!
