Hey everybody! A few days ago I was feeling massively emotional. Like you know when you know you’re acting crazy, but you just cant stop…anyone else ever have this? I’m pretty sure that both of my neighbors know when I’m feeling like this. Cause I might be loud.
Anyways. A few days ago I was feeling crazy, and I’ve learned a little thing about myself. I get like this when I’m frustrated with me. I’m the problem. I want to pretend that its everyone else causing me angst but really its just this girl, not doing her stuff. I know some of you are thinking “you just had a baby, cut yourself some slack!” but this runs a little deeper. Its not just taking it easy, its not doing anything that I should be, or want to be, doing because I’ve watched complete seasons of Mad Men, Better Call Saul, and House since I birthed the little Bremlin. So approximately 1/2 of his life in solid tv. Dude. That’s embarrassing.
My frustration with my lack of well, everything, hit a fever pitch. I was talking to Court and everything just seemed like such a big deal, even though it wasn’t. The conversation started when I went in to tell him about this awesome idea for a room makeover and he said “You should talk to someone else about this because I don’t get it.” What he meant was “I’m not a visionary and I don’t see what you see. You can tell me about it but I probably wont have anything to add to the conversation.” and I took it as “I hate you. Stop talking to me.” At which point I lost the little bits of tape that were holding me together and had to have a 2 hour conversation with him about why I need someone to talk to about my ideas and how much I need creative people in my life. News flash, as creative as he is, Don Draper is not that person for me.
Then (after I calmed down) I got thinking about all of you, and your projects, and your creative tribes and it just made me so happy. Seriously, still a little emotional here.
So I thought it would be so fun to have a hand in a little project between friends. Picture you and a few friends chatting and having an all around great time, and then a stranger walks up and group hugs everyone and starts crying. That’s me, I love a good group hug.
I’m giving away 3 world famous brass geometric Himmeli wreath kits from the Vintage Revivals Shop to 1 lucky person, just so that you and your creative besties can get together and have a fun night on me.
I promise I wont be crazy and show up at your door…or will I?
