I posted this on my Instagram post last month but thought it’d be fitting to post on here as well!
Hello new & old friends, I wanted to introduce/reintroduce myself to you. My husband started our blog back in 2008 & wrote our 1st blog post, mainly for journaling & his parents who live in Hawaii & my parents living in Korea at the time. We were newlyweds & when I realized my money was no longer mine but “our money” & I couldn’t spend all my money on new clothes anymore, I rummaged through the old clothes in my closet & decided to refashion them after seeing designs in magazines/online & thinking, “Hey, I can make that!”
I took a ghetto, blurry picture with my phone(remember when having the tiniest phone possible was a cool thing? I miss those tiny phones with no internet!) of me looking in the mirror while wearing the top I made, then posted it on my blog, never thinking people other than close friends & family would see it. It was fun to save money, save the environment, & use my creativity! So I kept doing it & it attracted readers from all over the world which scared me so I tried to make my blog private but it exceeded the 100 emails limit so I left it alone. So I never meant to become a blogger or an online influencer. But here we are at 50k+ followers, no less! It’s all because of you!
I used to post weekly sewing posts for 2 years, then stopped because 3 kids, ya’ll. 3 kids rocked my world. But I am back to posting weekly & now do video tutorials on my new YouTube channel I started 3 months ago: youtube.com/sarahtyau.
My dreams are to one day start a clothing line with my girls(we are starting a mother-daughter sewing series soon!) and donating 10%, 20%, 30%, 50%, & eventually 100% of the proceeds to helping children in need, esp. the precious orphans. That is my biggest passion. So big that my heart starts pounding & fills up with so much desire & determination every time I think about it. And makes me cry! So blogging, YouTubing, Instagramming, is all a stepping stone to my biggest dream. So thank you so much for following along this little ole’ me & helping me to get to my dream & being my friend on here, it means so much to me. I love you! I know that sounds so cheesy & even fake, but I genuinely mean it. You have been me so much love and support, so I love you right back! Thank you for every follow, every like, every comment, every subscribe, I am so grateful for each of you.
You’ll soon realize I am not that cool, I am just a big dork!
I’d love to have you be my friend on my other channels!
