So excited! My yarn order arrives today! I feel like Winthrop in the Music Man (Ron Howard as a little tike - before Mayberry) and just know that I'm gonna start belting out The Wells Fargo Wagon song when the UPS truck hits the driveway - dogs howling along! Not to worry - our UPS driver is used to it! For those of you who don't know this song or movie I highly recommend that you watch it if only for this song - it puts to words & music that feeling you get when you are anxiously awaiting your crafting supplies!
Once the yarn arrives I can begin work on 4 custom order Awareness Scarves! Can't wait - I've already got them designed in my head - all I need is the yarn!
How do you feel when you're waiting for a supply order? Me, I feel like a kid on Christmas morning! I know what's in the box but I still can't wait to tear it open to see it! It's mine, it's mine! Then, my mind goes haywire thinking of all the things that I can create with it - even though I already KNOW what I'm going to create with it - I think of new things I could create! Maybe that excitement will wane eventually - but I hope not. It's one of the things I like about creating - it's a new beginning every time.
How do you feel when you sell an item that you've created? I've only sold one item - a Star Afghan in SJ Sharks colors which was a custom order. It turned out beautifully and went to a good home. I find myself wondering about it... are they giving it a good home? Is it happy? And, in moments of complete self doubt, has it fallen apart? Luckily they new owners are friends of mine so they don't mind when I check in on it - they understand - or at least, they humor me.
I've rambled here.... it's how my mind works I guess... the PuppyPosse is getting restless - I should probably go and see what they're up to (I shudder to think) - I need to keep them happy so they let me start working on my scarves when my order arrives... and we're back to....

Oh don't let him pass my door!"
