Pom Pom Fringe, Wooden Spools and Knitting Needles...
Just a little hint of the many crazy things that are on my mind and don't make a whole lot of sense all together. Well, I guess they do all have the crafting thing in common. Oh yeah crafting, what is that? So sorry it has been a bit uninspiring around these parts lately. I am in a crafting slump and don't know what to do with myself to get out of it. I have quite a few projects that I do want to finish, but when it comes time to pick them up and work on them, I just don't get that far. Ugh, it is driving me crazy! I know that my new Etsy shop has been taking up a lot of my time, but not all of it.
-How my brain feels! I recently found a big ol' bag of pom pom fringe at a thrift store for only $2. This is only half of it.
I also need to figure out the direction I want to take this here blog. I don't want it just to be all about my new store (which it has been lately), but I do want to share things that are exciting to me (my store included). To let you in on the big picture... This is all stemming from my sort of indecision on what direction I want to focus my creative energy on, which was the original focus of this blog. I tend to dabble in all sorts of crafty stuff, but never for too long, 'cause I get bored. But I feel like if I want to get serious about where this creative energy will take me and hopefully be able to make a living on it, I need to get serious with something. I am just blathering on now and sorry if it is boring. I am sure there will be a bit more of this "sortin' my stuff out", in the coming weeks or months, but I will try and keep it to a minimum.
A few images of me playing around with my camera in my studio (read between the lines here... PROCRASTINATING!):
-Some of the many wooden thread spools I have collected over the years. What to do with them all? Any ideas?
- I love my vintage Bauer Pot that holds my mixed collection of old and new knitting needles. My dad gave me this pot, he called me one day saying he thought I would like this pot he found... Yes, I said that "he found". Someone had thrown this beauty in the trash.
- Oh pretty pom pom rainbow! Fooling around with my bag o' pom pom fringe.
Here is a new site/blog I just discovered Colette Patterns. I have been reading her other blog for a while now and found out through there, that she is starting her own pattern company. I can't wait to see what she will have to offer. She has great personal style, so I am sure her patterns will reflect that.
