July 2009, right before the New York bar, is when I decided to start my own line of handbags and accessories. It’s now April 2010 and apparent to me that I’ve spent the last 8 or 9 months walking in a big circle. I’m back where I started.
It’s painful for me to look at the samples that I spent the last 6 months making. They represent an unprecedented state of ugliness. Hoping for a silver lining, I’d like to think that I’ve learned from all this. I’ve got a better idea now of what can and cannot be done, and how or how not to approach certain issues. Right now feels like a tempting time to give up, throw in the towel; but I won’t. There are still miles to go before I’ll sleep. =)
