Have you ever played that game in your head where a genie grants you three wishes? What would you wish for? If you are like me, you just keep asking for 10 more wishes, right?
I live right over the border in Idaho and they participate in the lottery. Every time I drive home I see the Power Ball totals and I spend that money in my head. By the time I pull in my driveway, I am driving a red Mercedes Benz and pulling into my 10 car garage right next to the pool. Who am I kidding? But isn’t life about wishes and dreams?
Harriet Tubman said, “Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world!” Wow! So powerful!
I have had a great career filled with wonderful jobs. I have traveled. I have worked in the fashion industry. I have worked internationally. I have many great friends and I have had many great experiences. I have many things in my life that bring me joy. I have also learned many skills that I use. Never in a million years did I think that I could combine my love of creativity, my love of quilting and my passion with meeting and interacting with people. Well, I joined My Girlfriend’s Quilt Shoppe and I have been able to live the dream.
I also have another dream. That dream is to quilt my own quilts and finish my own projects from start to finish. So, when I win the lottery and see my genie, I will wish for a huge sewing room with 10 kinds of sewing machines. I will dream of a new longarm machine (and days that are 48 hours long so I can have 20 hours to create!) I will dream of having my own business and creating for others. I dream of long days in my bare feet at new machines. Heck, I dream of hearing my machine make a funny noise or it malfunctions and the doorbell rings. In walks the sewing machine fairy (who looks a lot like Dwayne Johnson in The Tooth Fairy) and he fixes all of my problems!
Well, The Girlfriend’s at My Girlfriend’s Quilt Shoppe have taken the first step and the second and third. Wouldn’t you know…..they are magic!
Step 1: I want 10 kinds of sewing machines. Well if you have not visited the Shoppe’s in Logan, Utah, Sandy, Utah or their website ,My Girlfriend’s Quilt Shoppe – Sewing Machine and Education Center (mygirlfriendsquiltshoppe.com) you need to. They carry a variety of machines in a variety of price ranges. Anything you can dream of creating, they seem to have a machine or tool for that.
Step 2: The biggest obstacle to having everything I want in my life is time and money. I just do not have enough of either all at the same time. Well, did you know you can finance machines (OAC) at a certain price point at My Girlfriend’s Quilt Shoppe? They can even help you over the phone.
Step 3: I just cannot learn it all. Between one to one education, online classes and in person help, the Girlfriends will teach you all of the tips and tricks when you purchase a new machine. Then, they provide tutorials, classes, accessories and kits so you can make every dream come true.
Imagine…..I can be on my way to another new fantasy in no time at all. SO…. now my new dreams include genies, the lottery, cleaning out the garage and purchasing a new long arm machine. Maybe the garage is not the appropriate place….I mean who needs a kitchen table, right?
