Slow Design {my new mantra}

The time I’ve given myself to create has been diminishing lately so instead of rushing through a project when I have the chance, I’m taking on #SlowDesign like it’s my new mantra.

Being more intention with my creations means I just taught myself a new skill (my version of a zigzag appliqué – which was the slowest I think I’ve ever stitch anything with my machine 🙂 ). The blue scrap heart is from my one of my Dad’s old shirts and was originally intended for my sister’s wedding dress. I found it while cleaning out my craft room on Friday (and boy did that cleaning give me the boost I needed to get back in here!). The textured polka dotted fabric is from a vintage table cloth I got my hands on.

That cute little heart will serve as a reminder every time I open my new clutch/crossbody/wristlet to be intentional {in all things}.

My name is Jordan. I'm a full-time working mom whose coffee cup is always half full (and probably still in the microwave). I've got a weak spot for rescuing old dogs, pretending pizza is a vegetable, negotiating dessert with every meal, propagating more plants than any home needs, dreaming of sewing projects while my husband is talking to me, and loving my tribe too deep.
