Three Things Thursday

1. Today is a day in need of laughter & energy, one in which I could use some good ol’ sister + girlfriend time. Busy seasons are both welcome & difficult in the fact that my singular focus on business means extra time spent with the girls gets put on the back burner. This weekend is the big craft show & then I’m giving myself a week of coffee & lunch dates, a girls night out & getting super girly hosting a baby shower for a dear friend.

2. Do you ever get into a place of such creativity that your hands need to work in order for your mind & body to relax? That’s my usual mind frame as show times get close. I decided I’d try my hand at some hoop art. Those cross stitching lessons my mom, sister & I had in the 80’s certainly paid off this week! There is something so soothing in sitting down to rest mentally & physically while still being productive & getting out creative energy. Here is what I made, with design input from le petit artiste.

3. Bell Buckle, Bell Buckle, Bell Buckle!!!! It’s at the forefront of my mind. It’s taking over my dreams. It’s surrounding me mentally, physically & emotionally. If you’re in Middle Tennessee this weekend, please come out to support the Webb School & so many amazing artists & crafters this weekend. The weather is going to be perfect. I’ll be on Maple Street next to the campus.

Happy crafting & dreams,
Mae
