Honing my ideas and skills down to something marketable and totally awesome has been harder than I thought. Actually, I haven't even really honed anything down. I have a million ideas and am still going in a million different directions. Today I took a lighter to a synthetic dress from the Goodwill and plan to weave yearn through the burn holes I made. What? What am I thinking sometimes? ( I still think that this idea may work but sometimes ideas don't translate to real life) I am exploring multiple creative avenues in search of something marketable... well I think I am changing my strategy. I am going to explore different creative avenues based ONLY on my pure enjoyment of said creative avenues. I am going to make myself happy even if it means sitting in a pile of vintage fabric cutting shapes out of it which I will then sew onto bandannas for dogs. (Hmmm that just came to me as I was typing but not a half bad idea)
Concentrating on making oneself happy can be a liberating thing, I'm feeling. Manfriend can call me a pyro but if melting synthetic fabrics and playing with yarn makes me happy today? Then hey, I'll be doing it. Unfortunately, I bought a new iron today and need to test 'er out... doing laundry. Tomorrow, yeah, tomorrow I'll be weaving my dream together with yarn and a smile... and Real Housewives of NJ.
