Hey, I don't have all the answers. In life, to be honest, I failed as much as I have succeeded. But I love my wife. I love my life. And I wish you my kind of success.
Dicky Fox – Jerry Maguire
With all the end of year hoo-har that is happening about the place, I find myself reflecting on things that have happened this year, where I'm at and where I want to go. When I first watched Jerry Maguire, longer ago than I care to remember, this quote stuck with me. I remember having quite an in depth conversation with some of my cousins about what it is to succeed and the need to match our values with our measure of success.
I think, at this time of year, we can sometimes get quite caught up in really crazy measures of success...how many presents are wrapped, how many jobs are ticked off on the Christmas list, when you mailed your cards...IF you mailed your cards. It's good to take a minute and just remember what success really means for me. How about you?

My creative space this week involved lots of sewing to boost the stock levels for a crazy month of marketing. I also had an order for a ballet slipper tank to match a tutu her little one is wearing in a family portrait. Jodi needed the ballet slippers to be in a pale blue instead of the usual silver. I didn't find any sequins in the shade she wanted so I used a Princess satin and some matching, sparkly, tulle which I layered over the top to differentiate between the inner and outer part of the shoe. I was quite taken with the finished look and I'm going back for some more satin and tulle in pink, I think!
