Happy 2020!!! I will say that in many ways 2019 was on of the hardest years of my life. Mentally I was just not in the best of head spaces. From self-uncertainty and anxiety to family issues and sickness it was just a lot going on. One thing I am extremely grateful for is that I knew I needed help and I went to go talk to someone. It helped put things into perspective and things got better as the year went on.
Usually my main form of self care was sewing. Since discovery the hobby sewing was always a safe place but then I tried to take on more people’s orders which led to me sewing more for others than I was sewing for myself and my self care became another job which led to more anxiety and second guessing myself. Around my birthday I did some soul searching and what came to me is that I needed more balance especially in the craft I hold so dear.
In 2020 Julian Creates is focusing on making more creators through tutorials and teaching others about the craft and helping people discover their own personal style while I create garments and ideas that bring me my own joy and happiness. There are some people I will make things for and orders that will happen but the focus is on holding on to what I love and the reason I love it while creating a community that continues to support others with similar interests despite other differences.
Expect more clothes and great looks from me in the new year and I look forward to more interaction going forward.
