Yarn arrives today!

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....

"O-ho the Wells Fargo Wagon is a-comin' down the street,
Oh don't let him pass my door!"

Wilma's quote of the day:    What does a dog do on his day off?  He can't lie around - that's his job. - George Carlin

I totally 'get' it! I'm a yarn person too and sell my handmades in one of my stores. The excitement of getting new colors and textures to work with, and then creating something that came out of your mind is like meeting your Maker's Purpose. Then finding someone else who thinks your creation is worthy of buying is the equivalent confirmation to a big ol' "Atta Girl!"

Thank you CabanaThreads... had almost calmed down but now have Wells Fargo Wagon song in head again - if I sing it loud enough do you think that'll make 'em get here faster? More likely, he'll head the other way as fast as he can!!!
