Motivation and Music


I have been staying very busy in preparation for Indie Emporium this weekend. Shows, events, and other crafty plans can serve as a great motivator for me to make sure I'm putting in plenty of hours at my craft desk. Here is a glimpse at what my busy little hands have been making...

Glitter Star Charms

Tiny Animal Sculptures
Chubby Owls

Lots of Glitter Acorns in fun new colors.

I've even got a pink acorn necklace with a baby acorn clinging to the stem. Because it's so special, someone will be taking this one home for free!

The first person to visit me at Indie Emporium and ask for the acorn baby will get it. Ask and you shall receive!

One thing that is almost essential for me to get into a crafty groove is good music. Although I'm a rocker chick at the core, my musical taste encompasses many decades and genres. I put together a playlist of songs I find to be soulful, inspiring, and above all, beautiful to inspire me while I work. If this sounds like your cup of tea and you decide to click play, I've designed this playlist so that your crafty little soul will be satisfied within five seconds of doing so.

I will make sure to report back after the show with plenty of photos. As for today, I'm getting ready to dress up and head to the tv station to promote Indie Emporium on the local news! I'm super excited and a little nervous, but considering I could talk about this show in my sleep, I'm hoping it will come naturally for me no matter how many cameras and fancy equipment are in the room. I hope this week finds you happy and inspired!
