Project runway

Since I have found the blog blogging project runway I look at it every day. Today I read every entry Sweet P has on her blog and he leads a very nice life. She doe not talke about her work to much. She was my favorite. Her dresses were alway nice and I could see then in a dress shop. I also like her attitude during the whole show.

Last night I was looking at the stash of fabrics that I have knowing that I should have started on the dresses for spring months ago and now its summer and I still need dresses. I have lots of plan but nothing is working for me. The fabric I have are not inspiring me to create with them. I missed the 3 Rivers Arts Festival I think this is the 3rd time in all my years in pittsburgh. I remember going to the arts festival as a school field trip. When I would get home I had so many ideas and I would try to do them all. I am hoping my lil designer will do something inspiring this weekend so I can just get started like I want to.

Avon business has taken a lot of joy out of the things I used to do. I am so busy making appointments and trying to create a successful downline and one the is productive as well. Sometimes I am so focused on recuriting new prospects that I dont have enough time to sell to my customer. I am very disorganized right now and I have to get my mind together. Then I can function the way I know I should be able to.

I look forward to the new season of Project Runway I have not been watching TV hardly at all because they are not even showing re-runs of the shows. My stepdaughter told me she almost bought me the complete first season of the show but then she could not see why I would watch something I had already seen. I however would watch the same show over and over again. I know that I am not insane because I do remember the end result will always be the same.

While watching the repeats of the show I often drawing designs based on the challenges presented.

I believe that I will step out of the leadership program for a while and just concentrate on selling products and build customer base and sewing and creating beautiful things.

I need Therapy

It's important to take time for yourself and I am one for telling others to do that for themselves but often i do not do this for myself.   I find that I am surrounded by people who need me to do things for them.  Nothing major things that they can do themselves but it is easier to get someone else to do it and i am that someone else.  Gail do this, gail do that.  Good grief!
There are times when I feel like I am just living my life.   Just making it  day after day, one day blends into the next one.  Don't really see accomplishments, advancements, forward movements. As a result i an feel a bit lost and out of sorts.  I feel the need for therapy. I have a bujo and in it i have schedule and routine for everyone and thing with the exception of me.  I discovered this when i took a moment to review the schedules and routines to figure out  why i was not getting any sewing projects completed, no practice time for watercolors and the crocheting and needlework was sitting in a  corner.…

Life in a Scheduling Room

It has been some time since I felt it necessary to say anything about my job.  However this is something that i need to address at this time.  My work associates range in ages and this diversity helps our department funtion in an ackward yet somewhat effective way.  One coworker who is very verbal about everything that goes wrong.  You know when she is not well because she is quiet and there are times when she is very focus on what she is doing and if that concentration is broken so is her silence.  For the most part this does not bother me except when she takes me out of my zone and then my work rhythm is interrupted.   I am sure i am guilty of doing the same to her i think everyone does.  Then there is next coworker a beautiful young lady that gives the impression of being younger than she actually is and so I have a tendency to feel like  need  to protect her.  That is something I had to stop doing it was not needed and i hope I did not offend her.  Her method working is not as pr…

Beyond Mesaure

My mother taught me to sew my clothes because I was bigger then the average girl.  Please note the word I used was bigger not taller.  This is what I heard from family and friends " wow you are getting big"  At the age of 11 or 12  big means fat not tall.  
When looking at picture of myself at that young age when I was getting bigger it turns out I was quite slim. My Uncle called my lean bean, because I was long and lankey. He was the only one who go the measurment correct and described me in a way that I preferred to big. 
Before going into High School I stood 5 feet 8 inches tall and when I graduated high schooL I grew another .75 inches taller.  I tell people I am 5 foot 9 inches tall.  I love being tall  I am not a fan of being big. 
My sister stands 5 foot4 inches tall and she remembers as she was growing being told she was big.  I guess my family does not use pharses like " my how you have grown" and instead use phrases such as  "Wow you are getting big!…
