2018: A Year to Weave and Spin

How many of us spin and weave on a daily basis? How often do we intend to, but then don’t do?  How often do we wish we could get that project finished? Or start those napkins we’ve been meaning to weave for a year or more?

An editorial in issue 36 of Uppercase Magazine, challenged me to be creative every day. Instead of reading the news first thing in the morning, I’m pledging to start my day off by spending time weaving or spinning. What I can report after the first week or so of my new creative time, is that a few minutes stretch into many more, and progress is being made on projects that had been lingering. I love this time and encourage you to join in on making 2018 a productive AND creative year of weaving and spinning.

We’d love to hear how you are planning to create more in the year ahead. Just drop us a line—or better yet—send a photo and we’ll share it on Facebook, Instagram, or our next Newsletter!
