Today, I was out and about. Went to a few shops: Goodwill, Textures, Barnes and Noble, and Jo Ann. I was running errands and checking out my happy places. Do you have those stores? The shops that you love to visit because once you walk in the door you breathe deeper, your steps feel lighter, and your mind starts racing, zipping back and forth with colorful ideas? Those shops are the places I feel inspired. Textures, because it is full of crafters' goodies that make me want to run back to my sewing room and get busy. Goodwill, because I can find the perfect pillowcase that no one else would want because they don't realize the value in this vintage fabric. Barnes and Noble, where the sewing and crafting magazines, with their stunning pictures, are just waiting for you to ogle. And then there is Jo Ann. The place were I can actually touch the colors, textures, and patterns I want to line my house with. Needless to say, it was a good Saturday-day.
Then tonight I watched Julie and Julia, which I highly recommend to bloggers and people who would love to make something bigger of that hobby of theirs. Of course I am no cook, but I can appreciate the creativity and satisfaction of creating something, whether it is a custard or a clutch.
So my Saturday evening was also very good. Oh, and I forgot to mention...to top it all off, I had an espresso cupcake from Lucy and Leo's Cupcakery ...just perfect.
