Every day is an adventure. I share the view, the gratitude and the finds on Fridays, and you’re invited to join in.
You can find all my adventures here, or follow along via email here.
I am so grateful for:
- The opportunity to teach through Handmade in America. I have met so many amazing, delightful and creative entrepreneurs these last 3 weeks.
- Cool, sunny runs
- Autumn is really, truly here!
- New brakes + new insurance for the car. It isn't glamorous, but it feels fabulous to feel safe.
- Roasted butternut!
- The invitations sparked by my request.
- Lovely thank-yous of local wrestlers when I made them an entrance.
- Apple crisp! (this one, with brown rice syrup+ maple syrup replacing the sugar)
- Big shifts and tiny steps towards the Next Thing
- Jessika's look at what “handmade” means, and how that has shifted as the community has expanded.
- The reactions to my story of Imposter Syndrome have been phenomenal – your emails have been sweet, tender and so fierce. I love that Vanessa was brave enough to share her own story here.
- I just got Knit to Flatter from the library, so I was particularly delighted when Kim linked to Custom Fit.
- A friendly reminder, from Charles Bukowski:
“no baby, if you’re going to create
you’re going to create whether you work
16 hours a day in a coal mine
you’re going to create in a small room with 3 children
while you’re on
you’re going to create with part of your mind and your body blown
you’re going to create blind
you’re going to create with a cat crawling up your
the whole city trembles in earthquake, bombardment,
flood and fire.
baby, air and light and time and space
have nothing to do with it
and don’t create anything
except maybe a longer life to find
