I'm not sure where inspiration comes from it is as elusive as the man in the moon sometimes. There seem to be many dark nights and then suddenly there it is, smiling down on you.
Tonight as I sat doing busy work, filling orders. My dog Kirby came in from the outdoors. He pawed at my leg for attention, so I began to talk to him. It was just nonsense, the sort of things I always say to him. But he didn't care. He looked at me with his sweet brown eyes, just beaming happiness (probably because he had pooped in the backyard) and it suddenly came to me; the design problem I had been wrestling with for the week.
BAM! Inspiration! Like the moon popping out of a cloud. It was simple and beautiful and unexpected. Maybe this is how Kirby felt.
Thank you Kirby! (That must have been a really good poop!)

Small and Mighty

Last night I was actually shook awake by rolling thunder. It made my entire house shake. It was pretty cool after I figured out what it was. I never felt anything so amazing and scary before.
Nature has a wonderful way of reminding us just how small we all are.
Being small is not a bad thing. Consider the bee. This little fellow in my garden has gotten more work done today then I have, (or probably anyone else reading this).

Last night I had strange dreams, I can't recall what they were now, but I woke up with the feeling that "WOW that was weird", but somehow I feel like i've lost some secret important life instructions because I can't remember what it was I was dreaming.
These are listed on Etsy again, "dream hearts".
Sweet dreams to everybody!

Back from the Bead and Button Show! I am too tired to write much, but thank you to everyone I met there. I really was blessed by great friends and neighbors there. It was a joy to see and meet so many awesome people.
I wish I had more time to look around at all the wonderful goodies but I had to take care of business first and foremost.
I came away inspired but tired.
