Show and Share
I hear that's the new way of saying Show and Tell, though i'm not sure why. I guess with all these references to school, i'm really wanting to go back. Actually, i am, but i'm procastinating instead of filling out my application. I found a great program where i can get a Masters in Art Therapy - the type of therapy i use mostly and i know i both want to learn more counselling skills as well as have the 'status' of the M.A. after my name! Social work isn't known for its high-rolling paycheques, so i need to find ways i can get my hands on money any way i can cuz ya know I need to support my craft addiction somehow!
Anyway, enough side-bar info about me. I have things to share with you! I just got in the mail - isn't 'snail mail' wonderful! - a top i ordered from the fabulous Stephanie of anti-factory fame. Her motto is 'because sweat shops suck' and i couldn't agree more. I just had to wear it today (it was waiting for me when i got home yesterday). I just love finding all these amazing women (seems that DIY + craft = women) on line and buying stuff to support small and independent businesses. It's so inspiring for me. Maybe one day i'll start selling my jewellry - my first love of all things craft.
Anyway, i wanted to share with you my lovely new top and also my latest knitting work. Now that i'm back in my knitting group, i'm working on a cape with armholes. I found a couple of different yarns that are fuschia - at first i wasn't sure if i wanted such a bright colour but alas i couldn't resist it. I just hope i get to finish it in time for spring - the days are getting warmer fast!
Also, here's a shout out to my li'l sis who's got a birthday on April 28! Have a fabulous day, eat a chocolate cake for me, and pamper yourself!
