Superhero Tool, aka (GYST, Artist Software)

Check out the deal that our sponsor– Karen Atkinson and the GYST Team are offering through January 2, 2017. Great job, Viv, I added my thoughts at the end in italic.  I’m proud of you for allowing us to share our interactions publicly on my blog. I left your original title in the parentheses, balancing specifics with a little punch of fun. If you decide to add more words, use bold font or some other way to show what you changed. Letting the world…

Old Jeans, Seams and Dreams

Sometimes opportunity knocks, in the form of old jeans in need of new life–and with just a few hours to do the hack. I thought, if you give a fish, vs teach to fish… I have time to make a tutorial video on #snapchat. I spent about an hour doing the first pair BECAUSE OF THE VIDEO!!!  That pair was left with raw edge, but had reinforcement stitches (low tech, aka hand sewing) on the side-seams so pants…

Hanging on with Thread

  A friend asked about my thread racks, and a photo seemed like a good answer.  I have the large 120 spool thread racks, and I added hooks to hang on the wall. Then I cut straws to lengthen posts and topped it all off with #ikea #pictureledge for large #spools #studio #sewing #quilting #manageyourmess #makeityourown thread rack hack.

Thinking Big – Studio Secrets

Masterminded by fellow superhero, Cheryl Sleboda, the “spring cleaning your studio” blog hop is on a roll.  My reveal is on May 14! Here is a secret… I started by thinking, not doing… Have you ever thought so hard that it made your eyes googly? Secret #1 – Dream – Think Big Years ago, I scribbled out some pie-in-the-sky big-dream goals.  Yep, really out there, big dreams. Like turning my studio into a collaborative workspace that was interchangeable like Legos…

Oh-PIN-ions

  Found these lovely and well loved tomato pincushions, wonder what stories those pins would tell?  How about them tomatoes? PINS.. Love em, have them, but like recipes. I don’t typically use them – honest truth!  But when it’s crucial, yes indeedy-I-do make a point to use pins. Much like gravity, what goes up must come down – any pin you put in, must come out!

  • being brave we nurture our future, treasure the love and teach without bias. My respect to all those parents and kids of the last sixteen years who rebuild trust and hope while ensuring safety in these uneasy times--where a smile can seem rude or callous on q day of pain. I smile that all those who give aid, that they feel the love, that unending awe , that honors their sacrifice #bernesemountaindog #bmd #moon #patriotday #parents #teachers
  • Baysox Season ended -- top of the ninth on day nine of month nine on this my twenty-ninth year after school. My words spill out in cadence with Giamatti's GreenFields. This game evolved, the minor leagues fly through games in under two hours. Pace of the Game rules in action. Pack up Baysox until next spring, to restart that pattern of life, and hope. @bowiebaysox @milb @ballislife #sports #lifelessons
