The Jesse Update
4th month on unemployment…I’m still kickin. I really have become so busy with side jobs and life that I havent posted all of the lil goodies I have created in the past couple of weeks. Everything from penny’s for my nieces soccer team Me & My sister coach- to a squeaky chew toy for neighbs dog- & of course some new spring time duds for me or I have been commissioned to do. I have tried to document most of it.
I am staying busy… applying for jobs, interning/ helping @ 2 diff alterations shops & maintaining my consignment display (i sold my beatles pillow!), freelancing for an up&coming line (Kultural Icon…I finally own a MAC!), watching Baby Wyatt , cleaning houses, odd jobs for my mom, ODU’s Fashion Academy, trying to get involved with a local shoe design team….thats all i can remember right now. This week Im focused on getting my brides taken care of… i finished an adorable ring pillow yesterday & ill be making a veil today.
In this whirl wind of life… I have learned to take everything little by little… enjoy life, don’t let any of the good go un-noticed…spending time with loved ones, playing tennis, home cooked dinners, driving with the windows down, coaching soccer, biking & the beach, happy hour, walkin’/playin w/ dogs, hanging out on the porch/patio, laughing @ the kittys, grilling out, hugs & kisses, tickling & playing with hair, live music, dancing & singing, dressing up for no reason, making our house a home, giving little gifts…
Staying busy comes naturally to me & I am very thankful for that drive. I am even more thankful & amazed at all of the loving people my life is filled with. They never allowed for me to wallow in what can get very over whelming. Life is too short to have pitty-partys…so i just prefer to party! I know we are definitely living through a significant time in history. Honestly i wouldnt change the way all of this has affected me personally, I know better than anyone to embrace change, & learn from it.
So the next time you see me…dont ask me what im doing. Thank you for caring about me! I’d rather just enjoy the present. It just gets kinda exhausting trying to remember & explain all these different things & how they all work together. Im not quite sure how it’s all going to come together…im just gonna keep on, keepin’ on. Building my skills & honing my craft.
here are some little random nuggets I have managed to document in my creative renaissance…
