About that last one, I have been inspired to try free motion sewing on my machine. I have actually done two projects so far. I still need lots of practice and a special foot for my machine (so I won't sew through my finger), but I am loving the possibilities.
I have also discovered another new addiction through perusing the Alisa Burke blog. I was inspired to try watercolors - and guess what? I love watercolors!!! It is officially my favorite medium. I actually have a set that I now carry in my purse all the time. I think about painting all the time. I never even knew all the things that you can do with watercolor. Right now I pretty much just make background pages in my journal and have done one (not so wonderful) painting. Hopefully someday I will be able to take this class:
And I really really really want this artisan kit:
The bag alone has me sold!!! I was going to get it for myself for Christmas, but then realized that it would probably not arrive in time, so now I seem to be putting it off ... but maybe (just maybe) stopping by the site to look at it every day - just maybe :-)
So, yeah - Alisa Burke - check out her site and prepare to be amazed - and inspired - and check out this video:find your inspiration from Alisa Burke on Vimeo.
And speaking of videos - and addictions :-) I am addicted to the following song. It's got bango. It's got dududu singing. It's about Christmas!!! It's ... WONDERFUL!!!
