Inspiration Monday!!

I just finished reading a book by Joyce Meyer, it was about how to be a confident woman. This book is full of motivational advise for women. One of the points that she talked about was how we should not let fear stop us from trying new things. I have to admit that I have been guilty of this, but after reading the book I decided that I was going to be confident and try doing some of the things that I have always wanted to do, but didn't because I thought I would not be good at them. So, this is a picture of my new venture. I have had a sewing machine for years, and never really used it because I did not know how. Well, I pulled it out, looked up some free patterns from the Internet, and started sewing. It really was not as hard as I thought it would be. I know my little shoes and two diapers are not great, but I have to admit that I was proud of them.

I made them with things that I already had around the house. So not only did I learn to sew a little, I recycled some old baby blankets and fabric scraps from other craft projects at the same time.

I look at this as my start to being a more confident woman, however small it may be.

Do you have a good tip or piece of advise on being a confident woman, leave me a comment and let me know all about it.

Yay! Look at you! First, you start a great blog on how to make those pennies count. Next, you'll be opening up an etsy site to make more pennies. :)
I love reading Joyce Meyer books. She is so inspiring, honest, and helpful. I see her as a role-model.
