Work in Progress

work in progress // evermore paper co.

Popping in to share a little update on my new collection. If you follow along on instagram you may have seen a few sneak peeks here and there and know that I've been testing out all sorts of new techniques. It's been exciting to have time to experiment like this, but in the midst of doing so, I have become incredibly indecisive over my next steps (as I mentioned here). I had hoped to have a ton of new items in the shop by now, along with a fancy new catalog and a little website update, but it seems like those things keep getting pushed further and further off. 

To be honest, I was starting to feel quite down about it all and my mind started swirling with all these negative thoughts ("You're a failure!"). Rather then succumb to the depths, I've taken it as a challenge to work even harder, because the truth is, I've not failed at all, not even a single bit. All it took was the realization that I had set completely unrealistic expectations for myself. Once I adjusted those, it became much easier to start moving forward again. So I'm back to toiling away and getting closer to having some new items for you soon! You can sign up for my newsletter below to stay in the know.

In the meantime, I found this quote and the subsequent post from Molly Jacques really relevant. Enjoy and TGIF!
