It's a rare Saturday post for me, but I think I'll be too tied up with a work conference till the end of the week to post later. Anywho, recently Etsy posted an article about getting Denise Huxtable's style which was so awesome because this is a part of my design direction for the fall. YAY!!
Photo grabbed from a google search.
I think Denise's style embodies what I value and what I feel right now: an interesting concoction of vulnerability and strength.
At any given moment in time, I balance being a full time mom, wife, daughter, sister, and career person. In the significant spaces between I am an entrepreneur, friend, and just me. Each of my roles has a subset of responsibilities (a job description if you will) and require me to be fully present in order for me to feel that I've done them well. Of course I fall short more times than I'd like. I like to get things "right".
Somehow, when I knit or create a piece in other media...I feel like all is right with the world. In some amazing way, the coming together of fiber and colors speaks a truth that isn't, for me, something that can ever be written accurately. Truth that can be written accurately? I'm tired. I'm exhausted really, but what happens if I stop? If I stop, I stop.
I'm excited about this fall and what's to come in my work. I can't wait to share!! *I know that reads like a huge leap, but if we were talking, I would have sighed, taken a deep breath as I thought a few things through, and then you'd see that I came to a little bit of resolution that led me to excitement, ha!)
OK, another really long post, sorry! I'll try to update this week, otherwise later gators! (I heard a guy with a tattoo on his very muscular bicep say that today.)
*love and ginormous hugs*
