A stream-of-consciousness post. Pretentious. Indulgent. But oh well. My poetry writing class started last night. I have to write a poem about an object or a place. I'm having difficulty because I'm too critical of myself because I suffer from memory stains from my fiction writing workshops. I know I have it in me, I just need to begin. I'm brainstorming places I've been and what the consequences were, what they might mean in a larger context of my life.
Recently, I decided to reach out and ask for some advice from another crocheter/blogger. She made some great observations and I've taken her suggestions to heart. So, my first order of business: take better, more consistent photos.
I've been wanting a light box, but didn't want to spend the money. So, I read a few DIY articles online and built my own.
So as stated in my last post I undertook a series of restoration projects. I use the word restoration rather then conservation, because rather then simply maintain the piece in its original form (conservation) I give the piece's 'facelifts' so to speak (restoration) to add new life and 'beautify' if you like.
So to the sewing table.
After university had finished, I needed something to unwind from it all, something that wasn't to stressful but still proved to be a challenge.
Kids With A Vision (KWAV) originally posted the idea of Blessing Bags.
I think it is a wonderful idea. They put little ziplock bags of goodies together, store them in their vehicles, and hand them out when they see someone in need.
I decided that I should make some and give them out to a few of my friends and family to carry in their cars.
One of the first booth's I came across at the One of a Kind show was 'Moon Rox'. The creator of Moon Rox, Monique definitely set the bar high for the rest of the booths at the show. I was so impressed with her jewelry, and the way her product was displayed. These fresh, fun and vibrant pieces are the perfect addition to any outfit you might wear!
