I want to...

So, I'm in the middle of a time in my life where I am wanting to do EVERYTHING.  i just turned 30 so I'm sure this is a normal thing but I just can't seem to focus on one thing.  I want to continue my work as a programmer, I want to get married, I want to have babies, I want to be a stay at home mom, I want to be a blogger, I want to have a huge house with a massive craft room, I want to be rich (who doesn't)...I could go on forever.

In the midst of all of this 'I want to...' talk I was researching the possibility of taking some sort of online degree/certificate for sewing.  I really want to be able to make real things and possibly do some tailoring on the side.  I know I can do the construction part, the sewing part, the following directions part...I am logical, this part comes easy.  My problem is the design part. The right side of the brain part.  So I thought just learning skills, and not necessarily signing up to DESIGN, would be fun.

I have looked at Penn Foster Career School and at Stratford Career Institute.  They both seem like they would get me pointed in the right directions but it is very nerve racking to sign up for distance learning when I don't really know anyone that has completed the courses.

Then I stumbled upon Craftsy.  They have so many classes that you can choose from, and the prices seem more reasonable for me at this time.

So I did it.

I signed up for two classes.

Sew Ready: Garment Basics & Sewing with Knits.

I am so excited to start on this adventure in sewing and really hope to start learning things that will be valuable down the road.

While we are talking sewing, below are some of my favorite sewing blogs (in no particular order) that have some wonderful tutorials!  And by no means are these ALL the blogs I follow...just a few of my favorites.  If you have any you follow let me know! I always enjoy adding to the reading collection...
