The Summer break has started in our little home now that the mister’s semester is officially over which has got me thinking about the things I want to do this summer. Of course we will be tending to our little garden which will help me experiment in the kitchen a wee bit. /* As much as my picky eating habits (which I’m trying to break) will allow. */ And hopefully taking a few little outings & road trips. But there’s another little quest from this month that I’m hoping will lead to a path of many more exciting things, which I plan on starting this weekend!
If you don’t know I’m a zombie job employee that has been dreaming of joining the living, which means that I have been dreaming about doing my own thing. Using my crafty skills & creativity to open a little online shop of geeky wares for amazing nerds. Ways for people like us to add a bit of geekery to our every day looks & life.
The other day while I was waiting for the clock to strike the 5:00 pm quitting time, I got an idea for a hat design for that future shop. So this weekend I’m going to spend a little quality time with some stash yarn & see if I can take that sketch from paper to the real deal. You see, I was actually pretty nervous about being able to complete my short list of quests for the month all because of the handcraftery ones. It seems like there is always something to throw a wrench in my crafty plans, as of late. So I couldn’t be happier to spend a little quality time with some dear old friends, crochet hooks & yarn.
And don’t worry, I will be spending some quality time with both Momma Bears this weekend but we are postponing the great festivities until next weekend. You see this baby bear takes after her Momma Bear. While I’m planning on spending a good chunk of the weekend with my hands on some yarn & pencils /* Gotta make notes if I plan on making some of these hats for ya’ll! */, Momma Bear will be enjoying the weekend in her cute little booth at a downtown festival selling her handcraftery.
Who knows? I may even take my project bag along with me & get some sage advice from my crafting guru, dear Momma Bear. One of many creative ladies in my life that formed me into the craftaholic that I am.
So what are your plans this weekend? Don’t forget to add spoiling your mothers to the list. And for all those mothers out there, I wish you the happiest of Mother’s Days!
/* Hopefully I get enough progress done this weekend so that I can share some pictures of the hat & talk about my design process. */
