Last night, I had the privilege of letting a good friend use my hands as a canvas for her henna designs. And I was so incredibly, euphorically happy with the results that I had to share them!
Draw the art you want to see, start the business you want to run, play the music you want to hear, write the books you want to read, build the products you want to use – do the work you want to see done.

Today, I participated in my very first craft fair!!!
Total. Dream. Come. True.
I remember the first craft fair I ever visited. It was a winter showcase, and what seemed like hundreds and hundreds of vendors were dispersed throughout the venue. I was in awe of the amount of talent that surrounded me. And I was infinitely inspired. Not just by the knitters but by the seamstresses, chefs, jewelry designers and all others in between.
These people were all doing what they love, and fearlessly sharing it with the world.
Today at my first craft fair, I made a total of $60. Not a bad profit, but no where near selling out my total supply. But that wasn’t the point.
Today, I introduced “The Novelty Knitter” to the world in a new way, and I do not regret it for a moment.
I know that the only way to go from here is up, and I am soooo excited for the journey.
Validation is for parking.

As you can see, this week, my look is all about color. Some may call this look whimsical or say that it looks too spontaneous but I think that it is the perfect expression of my individual character. (I mean, who else is going to wear big, yellow earrings and a woolen pom-pom chain around their waist?!) XD
Talk to you soon,
Telling yourself you have all the time in the world, all the money in the world, all the colors in the palette, anything you want – that just kills creativity.
