July started out for me as a reopening of that creative part in my brain and a realization that being unhappy with how something is just means you have to make changes. I ventured into a lot of creative outlets, and for a second there I was overwhelmed with all of them, even to the point that I was trying to determine which one took priority and which ones could fall to the wayside. In all actuality none of them could be pushed to the back, they all are equally important to me, and I needed to make subtle or drastic changes to make them all work, and WORK WELL.
I’m born and bred a perfectionist, so the idea of one of the many things I love to do lacking in any way scared me. I don’t like putting my name on something that is half ass done. As Ron Swanson would say, full ass everything (I know the quote is different, but you get it). Making subtle changes to everything or honestly just trying something new has helped. Also, not overthinking has been my friend, as hard as that has been to stop doing.
I now feel like I can handle all my shit and still feel proud of everything I’m producing. I’m getting a new work space / studio so my brain can relax a little when it comes to creating and having the space to create.
Now to let everything take it’s course and flourish like it should.
I have to take a second to talk about this amazing top I bought. I went to Scout’s Babe Camp Vintage and found this amazing top from Ballad Vintage. It’s soft, and has one of the most unique necklines I’ve seen in a while.
If you haven’t ever been to Babe Camp (or can’t because you don’t live in the Omaha area), it’s an amazing collection of vintage and handmade booths. I love that the community is really bringing forth light to this amazing thing called vintage and thrifting. Also, supporting local is my favorite thing always.
