Our favorite time of the year has come! We are enjoying the crisp mornings, the night walks, and the pull of bringing everything inward.
This is the most creative time of the year for the girls and I as we jump into fall projects and plan ahead for the winter months.
Our business just doesn't include sitting inside and crafting, but enjoying the outdoors and the friends that gravitate near us.
Of course I'm carving time in my schedule to dust off the Singer and start on some projects. It's almost predictable who comes out of the woodwork and shows up here to visit, craft, and create with me. I'm feeling the pull towards these folks as I'm finding a peaceful place within myself. I'm acutely aware of who I choose to spend my free time with, and I'm grateful for the insight of which battles I need to let go. Autumn and all its richness seems to come at a time when I realize I need to get away from some "friends" and find my way to others. A time when old ideas fade away and new ones are formed.
I look forward to my women's craft nights, drinking a PBR by my singer, taking felt and floss with me as a portable project during my down time waiting for my kids, starting Crafternoons with some of my favorite neighborhood kids, and of course creativity.
