On The Road Again

Well blogging friends, we are on the road again (currently in Toronto for NXNE to be exact) which means the little time I spent on sewing just dropped to probably none. I wish it could be different but I realized that it just isn't possible. Before we left for tour I had the next six months all planned out. Each day would consist of sewing for hours and then filling my blog with all of my little projects. Well life has been much much different than I thought. Isn't that always the case though?! I really didn't get much done during our break in Coronado either. I started prepping to alter a skirt but realized that I didn't have everything I needed with me so it wasn't really worth it to try. I might as well wait till we are home in a few weeks. 
Oh yeah, small side note, we are going home now in July for a few weeks. It will be nice to unpack and regroup for a bit before we head out again. I really am going to try and get as much done as I humanly can while we are home. It will be a busy few weeks though. The guys will be working on writing and demoing songs most of the time. Also, Pete and I are finalizing plans to go on a trip with my parents for a few days while we have a break. It should be very fun!!
Okay back to sewing ... I have found that being on the road has kind of taken my motivation away. I still have the same desire to get an Etsy store up and running but real life (not to be confused with normal life, our life is definitely not normal) seems to get in the way at times. I know that I need to be better at making time for sewing and I am really hoping that I will do so once we are home. For the first few weeks that we were out I would get so frustrated with the situation and myself because I wasn't getting anything done. I decided to just give it a rest till we are home so I don't get too frustrated and then lose all motivation before I even finish a full collection of clothing. I plan to visit my favorite lucky thrift store the first Sunday I am home to get some great dollar deals. I find that thrifting always helps fuel my motivation quite a bit! I also might be making a fun purchase soon that I know will definitely get me excited about sewing again. At the very least it will look great in our room :)
