Amidst the chaos comes creativity


As my life has spun out of control for the past couple of weeks, I had to take a few minutes to get my head together and get back in to a more focused state. So this past weekend I tried something different again. I saw one similar on a friend of mine's group and had to try one. It is made with an old wooden spool in one of my favorite colors. I couldn't be satisfied with just one, so I made another one with a yellow thread spool and beads to match. Today on the yahoo group that I co-own....Crazy About Pincushions, I gave one of these away. They are very fun to make and now I am going to be on the hunt to find more old spools with thread still on them.

Happy creating everyone....

Aha! I have a few old spools with thread still on them. I think I see a project thanks to you. :-) Isn't it strange how creativity can rise out of stress?

What a great idea. Karendianne mentioned it on her blog and told us to come have a look. Hope you're feeling a little less stressed out now?

Anett, I still think of this terrible tragedy every day and every time I see any kind of a battery, I think of your precious great grand daughter and spread the word to others. Please know, that while many of us left initial messages for you after hearing about this from Karen, that we continue to care about you and hold you and your family in our hearts.
