The creative and spiritual journey of a (textile) recycler. . .

I have thought about starting a blog for a long time now. I just couldn’t seem to get started. I thought. . what would I say, what would I do and really . . . . . who would care.

Last year I had the great fortune to witness a ‘happening’. As a spouse at a reunion (I know, groan) I was both an observer and participant. This reunion was attended by some of the most creative and talented people on the face of the planet. Really, no exaggeration! But many were holding onto life long insecurities. They didn’t think they were talented enough and embarrassed to perform in front of each other for fear of . . who knows . . . finger pointing, whispers, laughter, ridicule of some sort for sure. Once it was revealed that many shared the same feelings, the healing began. And I was the lucky one. I got to witness it all and benefit as well.

So, the message is that we all think we are not good enough compared to someone else, but we are. Don’t let your fears and insecurities stop you. We can’t measure our own success by someone else’s talents.

This revelation and the kindness / support of strangers has propelled my creative journey to a place I had given up ever getting to. Tho I thought my creative juices were dried up forever, they have merely been reawakened. Many thanks to all involved in my process, including in-part . . Victoria B, Mrs. W., Charles Mc., Claudia H, Mary B, Cindy G, Sandy B, Traci B., Kat C, and my IAA family. So, thank you. I dedicate this blog to all of you!

Flea Market Friday - classes??

Well, it has come round again very quickly. . . Flea Market Friday.

Even though taking classes is not exactly flea market.. good prices are. And who doesn't like a good bargain. I found the Craftsy website a while ago and have been meaning to take some of their online classes. I've been a bit busy as you know. As things are calming down I'm trying to decide where to start.

What I like about Craftsy is the wide variety of creative classes they offer and that they never expire. You can log on any time, anywhere. Working in my jammies at my own speed works for me every time. Classes range from gardening, fiber arts, garment making, food and paper crafts and lots more. You can even give a class (or classes) as a gift for that hard to buy for creative person in your life!

Now that things are settling down a bit, I am looking forward to getting started. Which one, oh which one will I start with? Click on the banner above to take you directly to the website and get started. I'm going to.

Check it out.. get in on that bargain now! Sale prices are good for just a few days.. but really... these classes are a bargain all year round!
