2014 Week 27 of Making Something Every Day

I like this week especially because you get to see nearly every single step, from start to finish, of my making process. I don’t have very many weeks where that happens so handily. Also, I like this week because I finished a piece at the end of the previous week and sold it. I finished the green piece from this week that I’ve called “Sea of Wonder” and it’s sold as well.

That brings my total for the year to six sold works. I’ve got three pieces currently available for sale. If you are interested in any of them give me a shout.

2014 Weeks 25 & 26 of Making Something Every Day

While I worked on this piece this week, Ferguson, MO has been on my mind and my heart. I kept thinking this wound to our country isn’t going to be healed with a few days of protest, no matter how cathartic those days might be. I hope that what will come about after this week is people with privilege to start inviting (and welcome!) people without privilege to have have a seat at the table. For people to open their minds and hearts to someone else’s story and experience. For true listening to give way to better understanding and better action. Keep going. Keep going on to become a better people and a more whole nation. Keep going toward healing even though sometimes healing hurts. Keep going.

Thoughts on Week 25 of 2014 Making Something Every Day

I have struggled this week with Make Something Every Day.

I think this has been the worst week in the history of this project in terms of not being able to work. Sure there’s been times that I’ve been traveling or I’ve been working on something else but this week has been none of those things. I just haven’t been able to sit down at the table and do anything. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s end of summer marathon blues. The kids go back to school tomorrow.


I’m hopeful I can clear my head and get back to work.

Because not working is not working.

And it makes me morose.

In other news, I’m working on my application to be on a Board of Directors of an organization that I am deeply committed to. If I make the cut, I’ll announce but I’m gonna hold onto it for a bit longer. I’m supposed to find out at the beginning of September. I have a phone interview tonight. Wish me luck!
