Default Re: How do you know you got better at doing what you do?

I agree with everything that you've all said, especially looking at my first ones and comparing to what I make now!

For mine I'll say:

When you feel confident enough in your skills that you drop several hundred dollars on a full spectrum of 50 yard spools, and stop buying the tiny ones at Michael's!

All of the above On a side not... I just bought about $200 worth of ribbon to restock colors I was out of. Thankfully it was all money I've made from bows. But anyway I remember my first trip to Hobby Lobby spending $60 getting a gluegun, sticks, ribbon, dowel rods, etc. thinking it was a fortune, then 2 boxes of clips from Sally's. I was literally laughing about it today. Don't get me wrong I still love Hobby Lobby but I've come a long way

Okay now to add... when you now have to sneak bows in the trash b/c you don't want people thinking you made them but your kids still love them

When you don't feel like you have about 12 thumbs while making a bow.

You know by instinct that it's not working and redo it BEFORE you glue it onto your clip.
