I’ve been avoiding writing this post.
Over the past couple of years, I’ve been asked why did you leave fashion world? Why did you stop making things?
It was always a hard thing for me to answer and I would just say that I was “over it”.
Truthfully, I wasn’t.
I hit a really hard time in my life. I got laid off, went through a breakup, lost many people I thought were friends, and I had gained what seemed to me a lot of weight. I was extremely depressed. I had no one to talk to and most of my clothes didn’t fit. You would think that would give me some sort of motivation, but it didn’t.
It took me two years to get out of that slump! I finally lost most of my weight, made a couple of new friends, and met the most wonderful and supportive guy.
Don’t get me wrong, I still have my bad days and still have a lot of “recovering” and growing to do.
When I decided to get back to sewing and blogging, I felt that it was time I shared with everyone why exactly I had gone M.I.A.
I am extremely scared to fail at all this, but at least I can say I tried.
Thank you to my family and close friends that have helped support me during such a dark period of my time.
