It's been even quieter around here as usual, I know. If you follow me on twitter or instagram (both are @elingeling), then you know that I've been quiet there too. While trying to stay caught up with any deadlines I committed to in 2012, I've been very deliberately not committing to too much so far in 2013. Call it burnout or time to figure things out, but I've been doing just that.
Working on ideas that have been percolating for a long time (because they've been on the backburner), sketching, cooking, baking, reading books (with real paper pages!), hunkering down & hibernating... and just slowly getting out of that mode now. It took longer than I expected to emerge from my post-holiday head space, but I promise I'm not going anywhere. Just regrouping & plotting exciting new things.
One thing I knew I would never avoid committing to was getting to take part in the celebration of my favorite fabric/yarn/pretty things shop, Gather Here. Virginia & Noah have made their shop into a beautiful, highly inspirational place that makers, crafters & creative folk love & depend on. I have never been in without finding many new things to ooh & ahh over, and I've never left empty-handed, even when I swear I'm on a budget.
Anyway, Gather Here is turning two!, and I'm so very excited to be at the trunk show this Sunday.
