  2. Thanks so much for getting this going, @angelak!
  3. I'm gonna to Full Geek here. I'm currently reading a lighthearted romance novel called Well Met. It's about Renaissance Faire. I've never been to one, but it has me thinking loads about cosplay. This coming weekend, we're going to hook up via Facetime with the family we play Dungeons & Dragons with, and some of us are totally dressing up as our characters. In part, I'm thinking about how much the characters in this novel love escaping into their personas, and I think that kind of escape will feel amazing right now.

  6. Big event coming. Will we have to cancel it? Just need to decide. This has been the all-consuming issue for me (leading to lots and lots of stress knitting!).
  7. I've got the Montlake T-shirt pattern by @Kimberly Payne, a serger I barely know how to use, and some fabric I've been collecting over the years!

      Thank you for the warm welcome! I have been listening to your podcast and with each episode I feel like you are talking about the very things I am thinking about/struggling with. I appreciate the little gentle push to participate in a larger forum rather than living in my head. Thank you!

      I think you'll find just that here, Jean! And if there's something on your mind that isn't being discussed yet, please do dive in and bring it up. 🙂

  13. Ugh. @Alice Creason I'm so sorry to hear about the complications from surgery. Can nothing in life ever go smoothly? This is a question I've been asking a lot lately, with fists balled up and shaken at the skies. Sometimes mindlessly scrolling Facebook or watching videos is all we can expect of ourselves while our body is wrecked and fighting so hard to heal. Sometimes, that's exactly what we need. Sounds like you're trying to maintain life status quo even as you've been feeling dreadful. That's a tall order, my friend, and one I suspect no one expects of you but yourself. Are there folks at work who can help unburden you of your work-related obligations? Surely no one will expect you to be working hard while you recover from surgery? Please don't feel an obligation to this group right now, but please do count on us for company through the magic of the internet, and for talk of creativity while your body and mind work up the strength to make things. Sending much love!

  16. I'm so excited about this group, @Alice Creason! Thank you for starting it! --- So, hi. I'm Kim. And as you all likely know, I started my daily creative habit a few years ago, by doing a Year of Making. I had never succeeded at any kind of daily project before that, and I had tried many of them. I was certain I didn't have the conviction or the commitment or the creativity or whatever. Until I found an approach that worked with me instead of against me, and it changed everything about my creative experience. I did a YoM for several years straight, and at this point I hardly think about it. I probably make something every day, but my habit is strong – it's my normal now to be making things, so I may notice when I skip a day or a week, but I no longer fret that I'll have to work on reestablishing the habit. The habit is the part that's a constant. I honestly didn't think I'd ever write these words; it's a really great feeling. But. Of course there's a but! But there are more things I want to do, and I specifically struggle with putting in the time and effort to learn new things that I find difficult. For example, I have wanted to learn how to draw better. I have no, however, ever succeeded in committing to drawing daily. So that's what I'm doing here and now. Except maybe not exactly now. But I need to do this, and I'd appreciate the nudging and cheering and check-ins our community is so good at providing. There, I said it out loud. I want to do a minimum 30-day daily drawing project.

    Printmaking

    I love messing around with print-making. With rubber stamps, lino, whatever. Daisy's doing some cool stuff with printing over in the art journaling group, too!
