When I made the pattern for the Asleep Awake Doll I cut out a several dolls to sew up. This little girl ended up all sewn, but sat on my work table waiting to be stuffed for a few months. This weekend it was time to give her some attention. And here she is!
Today I noticed that the thigh of my favorite pair of jeans has developed a hole. Instead of tossing them out I'm going to join in Jen's Mend it May because, as she says, "...mending needs to become mainstream again."
Pip Lincolne learned about flow from watching her grandmother knit. It was then that she realized that, "creativity was something all kinds of bodies could be part of."
I see the internet as a sandbox. When new things become available I want to grab a bucket and a shovel, and start playing. Believe it or not, I started my blog before Facebook. In fact, back in 2005 there really wasn't any social media. But as each platform launched I tried to approach it with open arms and a "let's play" attitude.
One of the things I think is important to keep in mind is that nobody is looking at you all that closely. The internet is big and it spins by really fast. It's okay to experiment. You're better off getting in there and playing than sitting out because you're worried about making a mistake. Don't be afraid of getting sand between your toes.
Wishing you a creative and productive day.
P.S. I'm coveting a bookhou bag. Maybe for Mother's Day? And I just booked Arounna for the podcast.
