The summer is racing to a close, and I’ve not done a lot of the stuff I set out to do. I should NOT complain too much, we’ve done some amazing home renovations, I’m got an amazing opportunity to share my work with a TV audience, there’s just so much to do! Today when I was spending a couple of minutes seeing what was going in Twitterland, I saw an awesome twittersation going on (about focusing your camera some bizarre way which obviously is way beyond my comprehension…but so fascinating) I was overwhelmed with the sum total of all things I want to do but haven’t yet found time to do. SO what did I do? I cried UNCLE!!!!!! And of course, because I’m me…I tweeted it!
Well, the beauty of twitter is that 3 different twitter pals came to the rescue and talked me down – a sympathetic ear does wonders.
Speaking of twitter, I’ve been unable to follow back everyone following me -> there’s a fair amount of (ahem) editting that you need to do and I’ve gotten so behind with this that I’ve sorta given up. SO if you’re following me and I’m not – just @me to say hi and I’ll follow you back! Then someday when you’re crying Uncle I can chime in and make you feel a bit better! 😉
My moment? Well there were a couple in there. First – what an amazing group of incredible women I’ve met online, they’re so incredibly supportive, I really couldn’t do what I do without them. Second – I need to keep my eye on the long term. Over 2 and a half years ago, I had a vision of dyeing a bunch of scarves for a bridal party. And I’ve finally begun that project with not one, but two different couples asking me to do this for them! SO I’ll keep on dreaming and doing…and hope that my dreams will continue to come true…at a sane speed!
I’ve started test dyeing palettes for the first couple, these scarves went off to the bride to be yesterday, and I’m most anxious to hear what she thinks!
