It is the same for everything that requires passion and a desire to make something...whether you are a musician. or a writer. singer. baker. an artist. or even someone who has the gift of hospitality. It kinda just wells up inside until you can get an hour or two to create. Give life to your ideas. Make something beautiful just for the sake of creating-- totally independent of anything or anyone else. I love how God has given us that inner desire!
So this outfit verges on too girly for me:)...had to bounce out all that pink and fluff with some black tights and combat-esque boots:). Still wasn't sure if I was feeling it...until I got a package in the mail late in the day that added that extra touch of toughness that I like:). Take a peek...(And look at that beautiful packaging!! Prettiest I've ever seen!!)
I almost died when I opened it!! An up-cycled Cash tee-- now a totally awesome handbag!:) Phil was outside and I literally ran out of the house waving my new handmade bag at him:). I really need to be invited to a fun indie-music-cafe-marketplace-type thing, people:)...I just can't waste this awesome gift on the supermarket, ya know:)?
