Imagine I'm giving you all the biggest, warmest, friendliest hug! Super thank you to everyone who read and commented or emailed me yesterday.
I'd already laughed at my own silliness, picked myself up, and resolved to start fresh, but the wonderful advice, commiseration, and general butt kicking really helped me get my act together!
Honestly, after posting yesterday morning I was really considering throwing in the towel on the whole beginner project, but instead I cleaned up my act, created a much better outline for the DVD to follow, and restarted this morning with a fresh perspective.
I appreciate what everyone said - how it doesn't matter if I don't look super professional and how it might even be better that way!
This helped me to think outside of the perfect frames and angles I'd been using and I found 3 new places to shoot that really look awesome. Best of all, I didn't have to move my tables again, much to Josh's relief.
I slammed through the whole first part of the dvd this morning and will hopefully film the rest this afternoon. At this rate this DVD will be done by the end of the week and definitely launched by the end of January.
It just goes to show that sometimes problems are only in our minds, not really based in reality at all. I'm (hopefully) never going to forget this lesson again.
By the way, I think I've finally settled on a title: Free Motion Basics with Leah Day. Whatcha think?
I'm not going to post a design today, but instead get back to shooting my next segment. Who knew I had so much to say about batting?
Let's go quilt!
