I asked myself that today on the way home from the woodworker, as I drove country roads with a car loaded to the roof with looper looms.
There wasn't room for anything or anyone.
I am either nuts, or I am just a persistent optimist.
When I believe in something, I throw myself into it full throttle. This is no different.
God help me.
The last few days have been hectic. Baking the cookies, cleaning, organizing, getting the place ready for this Open House that starts tomorrow. And in the middle of it all, still marketing the looper loom, taking calls, emailing, sending things out. Ay caramba. I am crazy for sure.
I talked a bit about inspiration in a previous post.
Well, you see the pictures of the looper loom on the doors of this cabinet and underneath?
They were taken by Kate over at Country Girl
She took them of the loom she bought a while back, and sent them to me. The were such awesome pictures, they made me stop and appreciate them. And they INSPIRED me. Wow.
This is my looper loom, and it is awesome! Kate's eye caught something that I hadn't seen, something I couldn't even put my finger on. Her pictures helped me to NOT doubt myself.
Like I said, perspective. In this case, someone else's. Someone with a talent for taking photos that shout out.
I was also inspired to make something from the scarf seconds from Solmate socks. I had an idea that they would make fantastic wreaths. So I talked my old and dearest friend, Gayle, into trying to put them together.
They are kind of funky, but fun.
After a long day, I found myself at the studio alone. I had a chance to walk around and enjoy the quiet, and soak up the good stuff. That's what I call it. The house is pure energy.
This is the garland I made from the waste pieces from cutting the edges of the sock placemats made from the waste pieces called heel strips that were cut from the sock seconds to make hats.
I love it. I just haphazardly (can you tell) wrapped a short string of lights around it.
So I am thinking of a Christmas in the Country giveaway.
Should it be Greek Honey cookies? or a scrappy sock garland?
You decide, OK? Cause I am way too tired.
