Maybe before the holiday rush, where we get so focused on making things for others, and trying to get it all done, it might be fun to post a secret santa wish to share with the group. My fellow Gatherings affecianados, what do YOU want? This is not the “peace and good will” sort of wish, or the hope he notices me pining, or even the “two front teeth” desire.
This is the unabashedly “just for me,” been trying to buy it notion, will make me laugh when a look at it, will lighten my load, will make it easier to indulge my creative passion, might-not-never-get-it-but-don’t-cost-me-nothing-to-dream-about-it, gosh it would be really nice if, “yeah I said it so there,” “just because I want it type” wish.
Why? Because if nobody asks you, your friends at Gatherings understand your passion for your creative side. We know there’s no such thing as too much fabric, a craft store not worth visiting at least once, the glory of finding just the right wool for a project, the reason a template 1/4 inch larger than the one you bought last week makes perfect sense, the joy of just sitting with your stuff imagining the next, the magic of listening to a clump of stuffing talk to you until you figure out what doll is waiting to emerge, the utility of a magic wand for difficult clients and projects, the peace in finding the perfect shade of whatever….and the satisfaction of a finished project.
So my creative friends what do YOU want this year?
