Nursing school is my life right now and that is just how it is. The really sad part is that I miss sewing a tiny bit more than I miss my friends (sometimes - I mean we all have to work pretty hard to find time to hang out even when I am not in school).
But I have had the coolest opportunity...
Instagram has lead me to a whole new set of friends, friends I have never meet, but totally love. They are hilarious and incredibly talented (I tend to follow makers). Through IG I found myself in a birthday group. We are a small group (as to not get overwhelmed), just 7. That is 7 months out of the year instead of 12. The goal is to make something for the birthday girl that she will love and that is totally handmade. I have made several new friends and love making gifts.
My birthday was first and I didn't really know what to expect -
My mind was blown!
