I made it through the storm

Or at least, I thought I did. Last week I worked 83 hours in 7 days. We made the big switch over to HD, the new graphics, and a beautiful new set. But yesterday, 4 days in, everything seemed to be falling apart. I cried during the entire 6pm news. I have GOT to get a tougher skin. Blame it on being too sensitive, but I get tired and can no longer control outbursts of emotion. I hate crying at work!! It's so unprofessional. And I'm not crying because I'm sad, I'm crying because I'm MAD. Very, very MAD. But when the waterworks start, I just look like a wienie.

But I digress. Last night I did actually get home before 8pm for the first time in more than a month. So I celebrated by sewing. Now I have no excuse not to get crackin' on my stash of work for the upcoming show. I think I need to make a few fast and simple things just to build up my inventory.

Here are some very basic instructions for the tote. I actually deconstructed a bag that I had purchased, but it was pretty easy. Just use common sense where my instructions are lagging.

p.s. did you recognize that fabric? Yep, I decided to start actually using my stash of hand-prints. It's a good way to make my bags stand out in the crowd. you can't buy that print at Joann's!! Not that there's anything wrong with that.

What happened? Why were you so mad? I watched TD tonight and it was terrible again, so sad. I hope you have a better day tomorrow!

I was mad at the news director who nit-picks about font size on a graphic when it's all I can do to make the machine put graphics on the air. I'm just saying, there's a time and a place for criticism, and he doesn't know much about timing. I'm better now. Thanks for being concerned!!
