some things never change, but some do


This picture says so much about me and about how I do things.  It seems very staged.  But it’s not and that’s why it’s so funny to me.

We had just finished the basement space and I had moved my crafting stuff into the room.  At the same time, I was sewing curtains for the newly repainted kitchen.  I pulled out the sewing machine, sat it on top of a vintage suitcase from my stash, and pulled up the nearest chair.  A tiny chair built for a 3 year-old.  But I only needed to sew little hems on a few pieces of small fabric.  I would be done in just a few minutes.  And then it hit me.  This is how a crazy person sews.  When I shared the pic on instagram, by sister commented that she wished she had a straight jacket emoji.

Some things will never change for me.  My crafting will always be impromptu.  I still love sharing what I make and what I find but it is just not that easy to share from a blog.  The instantaneous sharing from phone to picture to instagram is a perfect fit for me (at least for now).   I’m a visual learner and obviously a visual sharer.

I found an easy way to keep my blog archives without the pesky annual fee and schlepped most of my posts here.  Of course, I love the picture-centered theme I chose.  I have no plans to post to this new space but plans change (sometimes in an instant). ♥

  1. Oh how fun to see a new post from you pop up in my reader! I love this photo. I often do things like this too. 🙂 I was thinking of you the other day when I was in World Market and they had blank journals with sewing pattern inspired covers. 🙂 Kelly
