Finally, we resigned ourselves to playing with ice. Even freezing temperatures have not been a constant and I failed to find joy in the seasonal confusion. I allowed it to drag me down to some dark places since this dreary winter began.
And then, in a Leap Day miracle, it fell…the thick, white blanket of winter.
I rolled around in it.
The chickens conversed about it.
I felt warm all the way through.
It seemed I was shirking my work, but even with hours of play and breaks for hot molasses milk, I was more productive in the studio than I have been in quite some time.
During the Icy Times, I was horribly unmotivated…I didn’t even tell you that I have all but abandoned my Etsy shop in favor of a new venue: The Spun Monkey on big cartel! There are still several small kinks to work out, but so far I find this to be a much happier home. I am slowly adding product and will be adding several new shop sections in the coming weeks. You will find a link there to sign up for the Newsletter, which comes to your inbox once/month with announcements and subscriber-only coupons. I’m looking forward to the unveiling of two new lines of repeatable colorways on yarn and fiber, and…the print shop. Stay tuned.
