Ever heard the doozers from fraggle rock sing about knitting?!

During the great radish famine in fraggle rock the doozers learned to knit and wrote a great song about it… worth a listen. ♥


Monster Sweetheart Knitting Patterns are now on Pinterest!

8 Mar

Hey all, I’ve just joined Pinterest.  And not in a I-just-put-Monster-Sweetheart-on-Pinterest kind of way, but it’s the very first time I joined at all and started pinning anything.

I was holding out because I heard it was one of those addictive internet time sucks.  And I’m not sure that it was in the best interest of my ideal time management situation, but it sure is fun!

If you want to check out my boards they are here: http://pinterest.com/monsterknits/

Monster Sweetheart specifically- would love if you repinned my stuff!

Also some love to the Boston Area Artists‘ board! ❤

maybe the journey is the destination

maybe the journey is the destination

I want to show you these, some of my favorite items from Etsy.

I love being a seller on Etsy partially because I’m so inspired by the other members of this artists community.  It really is  more than a marketplace- it’s a home for creations that may be searching for their voice.  Or artists with a voice, waiting to be heard.  It is easy to get lost in the jumble of awesome bits and pieces. Sometimes I feel like I’m struggling and want to give up.  But if the destination is the journey, then I am doing better than I give myself credit for, because I’m jumping in and putting one foot in front of the other.  And that is all I can ask for right now.

I hope you find peace in your moments today.  And every day.
