Whatever your gift or your talent is; use it. Take a step towards your goals and your dreams today and DO NOT let discouragement keep you down. NEVER...><I just feel like sharing my passion for sewing & designing<>
I always had a passion for sewing, I could remember walking in stores an looking at a dress & saying..."I can make that". I use to buy cloth and threads whenever I got the opportunity and in 2011 I bought my sewing machines...(no knowing how to sew, but figure that I will learn by trial & error)..... however, I was able to attend a 3 week course in my community. This was all I needed and from then I started making my own clothes.
Last year, 2012 I told my husband-to-be & my parents, that I will be making my wedding dress...it was a challenge because I never did such a big project before...but they supported, encouraged and assisted me in designing the dress.
So I started to make my wedding dress in May 2012 for August 2012 and this was on afternoons after work and sometimes on Saturdays...(+ church, chores, family time & radio time)
When I saw the progress I made on my own dress, I decided to make the bridesmaids dresses also...approx. 3 weeks before the wedding....and once again my husband-to-be supported me & my wonderful girls believed in me. And all of this was done in time for the wedding......To God be all the glory.
So just want to encourage someone...the bible says...Whatever your hands find to do it with all your might..
At the wedding reception....much persons were surprised.....when they heard that I made & designed the wedding dress & the bridesmaid dresses. As I reflect on this aspect of my life ...I am reminded to be focus,and use my gifts & talents to honor God.
You can also.... how?
1. Use you time wisely,
2. Invest in your talents,
3. Seek God's will & direction in your life
4. Have people who support your vision.
Welcome to Magnola's space.
A display of creativity.
I love fashion.
Creating and making new items from cloth.
I love Jesus and I seek to be modest in my fashion design/creations so that you can see Jesus through my creations & you will want to live for Jesus too.
