I spent the first half of the stay at home order playing video games. Guys, I put a lot of hours into State of Decay 2.
This most recent half? Sewing. Lots of sewing. Masks upon masks!
I spent a lot of time debating whether or not I’d make masks to sell. Something about it felt a little icky. I also wasn’t sure whether or not it’d be something folks needed in the long term or if it was like taking advantage of a bad situation. Jeff and I talked about it for a couple of days before I finally came to the conclusion it was something I should do. I also got like forty bazillion messages on Instagram asking if I’d be making them which helped sway me.
The first few were rough on me mentally. I hated that it was something I had to do, something that was a reality. It felt depressing. I had a hard time imagining making a bunch of them.
Every order that goes out now? I’m tickled! I’m so happy folks are doing their small part to keep everyone else safe and healthy. I think I’ve come to terms with the fact this is life now… at least for a while. If I can make something cute that makes someone feel a little less overwhelmed with the idea of having to wear a mask while grocery shopping or at work then that makes me feel good. And until this storm is over, I’ll be behind my sewing machine!
I’ve got a shop update full of masks going live at 12pm EST today (4/27). So be sure to stop by the shop if you’d like to see what I’ve got!
If/when those sell out – no worries I’m already working on the next batch!
