I have been dreaming of having a beautiful, cottage-setting garden for years. One with a rustic gate that creaks when you swing it open. Once inside you see rows of growing vegetables and herbs, with a mix of brightly blooming flowers lining the perimeter. Just typing it out I can imagine being there right now, of course sitting in a wooden swing that is hung from a trellis overgrown with morning glory (ok, maybe not so overgrown that there are spiders everywhere).
This is what inspires me at the moment. How, living in a crowded city, can I bring the beauty and life of an outdoor garden into my current environment?
So, here you have it, a carrot pin cushion. Inspired by nature, created with intention and fitting a purpose. A perfect treat for my little felt bunnies and crafting area.
My favorite Disney movie has to be Mary Poppins. The entire time I was creating this framed piece I kept singing, "let's go fly a kite." Kept getting strange looks from the kids, but I just kept on singing. All apart of the creative process. Sing a song, well sing a portion of a song, over and over until the project is complete. Today was just a tune that repeated itself in my mind, and didn't even know the words. Still don't. Tomorrow it will be another one and I have a hunch that it will be a Christmas song.
Off to sing, create a little and spend a day with my family. Much needed day out of the house.
Hope you find the perfect music to get your weekend started on a happy note!
