Booker T & The MG's Green Onions makes me smile and if you feel like smilin too then grab a circle rug and start gogo~ing! It's a great way to loosin up for some swingin arts n' crafts! It is Friday after all and the week has been go, go, go non-stop!
Have you had a rough week?
Did everything seem to be fighting you?
Tuesday morning, did you wake up to once again try to believe 6 impossible things before breakfast? Were you filled with hope and joy over forgetting the housework, having friends over to play and picking up dinner from the local Greek cafe?
Was Wednesday another day filled with slap dash attempts at cleaning up and rearranging the chaos as you added bits and pieces to current projects scattered about, half started, almost finished?
Did you stop for one moment to think, what am I doing?
Is this worth the time?
As you sewed the Shibori Girl silk down with reckless abandon did you feel free? Or did it feel as though you were making a mess and did Sally Self Doubt peek in and say hi at that moment? Did you ask her politely to leave as you continued to create a book about a journey into wonderland with a lonely little girl named Alice?
As you happily found a use for that vintage pompom fringe did you wonder if you could ever part with this funky fabric and paper book?
Knowing that you have always sold everything you ever made, do you want to keep this one...maybe make a quilted bag to hide it in and stash it under your pillow so that the Craft Show Fairy won't see it and insist you take it to the show?
As you made decisions on how to add ties to hold the book together did the stars line up and the moon explode as you got closer and closer to being finished?
Did you add blue silk water to the rising tide of the mock turtles tears and realize you were were almost done with a two week project, and take a moment to feel satisfaction in that one accomplishment?
Did dreams of granddaughters fill your imagination with the hopeful thought that maybe someday, some small hands will hold this book, as you tell the tale of rabbits and hatters and tea with roses and flamingos nearby?
As the week comes to an end have you wondered what you'll be doing this time next week? Is that looking/planning too far ahead?
I can only go one day at a time as I hurry/strive to get things finished and ready to sell. Last night I watched tv and painted glue on plastic spider rings then covered them with black glitter to be ready to be added to fake cupcakes today.
It's a craft factory around here and I am so glad my husband is patient and doesn't mind the salads at 8pm or stepping around piles of yarn to get to the sink.
Have a Happy Friday!
Don't let the little things take your Joy.
The dishes and dust will always be there. Finding time to create is worth the effort because it allows your heart to heal, your hands to work and your mind to imagine.
Go Make Something Awesome!
love & stitches,
