All tied up.
Here is an obi I made to go over layered t-shirts.
It was an idea I got seeing all the clothing that was inspired by Memoirs of a Geisha.
I will probably do a few more over the next week as I keep having fun ideas on how to tweak it.
I am going to make some fimo tabs to sew on to use as loops for the ribbon and I got some new fabric i got last weekend with my son.
I got fabric and I got him some knitting needles. I hope he will make me a scarf someday.
I just got turned down for a craft fair so I am spending some time re-evaluting my crafterpreurial goals and intentions..
Try more local fairs? Etsy?.. Obsessive swapping? Craft to post?
I have a very challenging full time job, a two hour a day commute, a 10 year old son and a complicated marriage.
I am considering what I really want. Craft blog? Cottage industry? Industrious diversion? More time to sleep?
I seem to want to make more than I can use.
It is definitely in the making for me.
So here come the questions:
Am I crafting for love?.. for money? .. because I am trying to fill some kind of wacky void?.. Avoidance?.. Prestige?..
Oh Jeez.. maybe just to kill some time.
I mean, seriously .. we don't have cable.
