Sometimes I love a craft that I can do while I’m watching tv or hanging with the family.  One that isn’t too messy or one I don’t have to concentrate on.  After you stuff yourself with turkey and snuggle up on the couch to watch some football, grab these pom pom makers for hours of creating.  Soooo easy, even the kiddos can join in!!

George Pillows and Alanis Morissette

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.  People tell me it’s because I’m an Aquarius and that I have wonder in my soul and that I love change.  Even now as I type this post, I have stopped and painted a deer head, made some pom poms for a gift topper, searched for dining room lighting for a client, and thought about how I can volunteer more time for CIN.

I’m all over the place and always have been.

I guess that’s ok.  I would like to say I’m a free spirit, artsy type but I’m very type A and an INFJ.  I’m confused and scattered and organized and scheduled.  I’m the totally opposite of myself!  Does this make sense to anyone!?!? I’m that song by Alanis Morrisett:

I’m broke but I’m happy
I’m poor but I’m kind
I’m short but I’m healthy, yeah
I’m high but I’m grounded
I’m sane but I’m overwhelmed
I’m lost but I’m hopeful baby

I feel drunk but I’m sober
I’m young and I’m underpaid
I’m tired but I’m working, yeah
I care but I’m restless
I’m here but I’m really gone
I’m wrong and I’m sorry baby

I’m free but I’m focused
I’m green but I’m wise
I’m hard but I’m friendly baby
I’m sad but I’m laughing
I’m brave but I’m chickenshit
I’m sick but I’m pretty baby

And what it all boils down to
Is that no one’s really got it figured out just yet

This song always brought me comfort and made me feel normal.  Maybe nobody has it all figured out and I need to stop trying so hard to do so.  That it’s ok to be loud but quiet, to crave company but disparately want to be alone, to dress in all black one day and then hippy chick the next, to want to live in the country but LOVE New York City, have a criminal justice degree but work for an interior design company, dye my blond hair black, to be a type A artist.  Oh my goodness this post is going to totally make me sound like I have a split personality!!!!

Well this was supposed to be a post about my new George pillows in my Etsy shop!!!!  See!!!!  I told you scattered.  I know one thing though.  No matter where I am in life, if I’m in a valley or at the top of a peak, I always go back to creating.  It’s the one thing I can count on not to change.
