My first ever video diary vlog :s What you think? #imapiece

09 Nov My first ever video diary vlog :s What you think? #imapiece

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterPin on Pinterest

So I put off doing the vlog until now (2am hours before my flight to Indonesia with Save the Children) because… I didn’t know what to say, don’t like being on camera and am full of mixed emotions.

I’m Sarah (Corbett) BTW. What do you think? It’s below. The only other things to say are please join this Craftivist Jigsaw #imapiece project here (where you will find all the resources to download in the What section if you hover over the hyperlinks) and sign the quick but very useful epetition here. Plus please comment on this blog or the YouTube vlog it’s self. You know I love constructive feedback and to hear your thoughts, feelings and gut reations. Feel free to use the comment section to open up discussion with others too and share the vlog if you think it might be useful. Eek I’m really nervous of your comments now. Please don’t troll but rather be a loving critical friend to help me improve x

    Hi Sarah, I have really enjoyed watching Vlog and I don’t think it is s**t as you said in your last comment 😀 Do more, I say!!

    I am a Youth Worker in Hull and I run a young women’s group and they are planning on making some fabric puzzles at the end of this month. I will try to document this activity and forward on the pictures to you. I have also passed this craftivist project onto a few other youth workers in Hull. So hopefully you will get quite a few fabric puzzles coming from our way 😀

    Good luck with your trip to Indonesia, I am sure you will meet many new friends 😀

      Hey Helen :) thanks so much for your encouraging comment & I’m so happy and excited about #imapiece craftivism activities happening all over Hull
      = how cool!:) I have to admit (&be stupidly honest again!) that although we’ve had amazing encouragement and praise, unless that turns into people taking time to make jigsaw pieces the project will be a failure :( so knowing that Hull jigsaws will be part of our (whatever size) installation is boss!:) wouldn’t it be brilliant for the craft community and others to show their anger, care & hope in stitches and thousands of jigsaws splattered all over a big room *dreaming*…:)

    I love your honesty Sarah, and your humility. It’s so wonderful to hear your thoughts – not neatly packaged and edited and slick, but raw and heartfelt and full of mixed emotions and uncertainties. You’re such an inspiration because you’re a real person; you haven’t got all the answers, you’ve just got your love and passion for people and for justice and that’s something everyone can aspire to. Well done, and thank you.

    It’s not shit at all! It’s human! It’s rare to see someone daring to show their ‘mixed emotions and uncertainties’ as Rin said. More power to those who do! You actually got me a wee bit teary eyed while watching it! 😉

    turn those tears into more stitched jigsaw pieces Carina :) seriously, whenever I get teary or overwhelmed craft really helps me focus, compose myself and reflect. Best therapy ever!:) xx
