Ugh the typos...Sorry, just stressed, isn't everyone? What is stressing you out today? is it silly? Is it serious? or is it both?

Feel free to reply in the comment section... : ). Take Care friends.

Why complete a creative project you want to give up on? Artist to Artist tough talk ahead.

Disclaimer: I originally used a name to describe feminist explanation in my original title and posts around the web. I forgot to follow the #1 rule of the internet, which is to do research on made up words that sound like they’ll go viral. Yes, I had a feeling people coined it already, I had no idea that it was deeper then just a word to describe a woman explaining why something is the way it is, just like men do.

Now that’s out of the way, I want to share with you to post I posted the other day, but it will not have a bunch of images. It will not be showy. It is truth and words and one picture is the only way to share this. I will also post on Tumblr, there will be a process picture on there that shows how I finished this project that has been nagging me. I will post other pictures on other social media throughout the week.

Here it is, with one picture at the beginning of this post to share:

Maintanence, posting the same content as yesterday, didn't realized I used a potentially trademarked term.

Sorry guys, had no idea Femsplain could be trademarked at some point, I will be posting the same thing with a few changes that I did yesterday.

Update: I'm posting the new post now, I've got a disclaimer in there about what I did, and I'm sorry I didn't look it up. This post is a record that I took anything down with the word that could be trademarked at some point.

I learned my lesson, which I explain in my revamped Artist to Artist talk.

See you soon.

So after you’ve been fired from a job you thought you could count on, what do you do?

There are days when I believe the people in my life who tell me, "You'll be fine." And there are days I think back to when I was first diagnosed Bipolar and even my doctor said, "Don't worry you won't be in Section 8 Housing." I think sure...and then I think of the day I met someone at a Crochet meetup who said "Oh you're not so bad, my Grandson has Bipolar and (Another condition I don't remember)." What is this? A contest to see who has "Serious Bipolar" and "Bipolar Light"?



I doubt all of them. Surely they are missing some information about me.

Got Fired? Great!

I got fired from an architectural firm in 2007. Ever since then I’ve found it difficult to stick to finishing projects I start. It’s a classic Bipolar symptom to go start many projects without finishing them. However, from talking to other Crafters, starting projects and ditching them is a universal habit.

What I’m about to tell you is my experience as to why I do this. Having bipolar disorder gives me insights into this habit that are off-track, yet being fired sent me off the tracks, what I am going to say is sensible despite how my firing happened. If you love music, like I do...

The Three part solution to finish projects you start and put aside, for days, months, or even years!

Answer, by beating rejection.

There comes a time when a person lives the handmade life and asks herself “Why am I unable to finish the projects that I start?” 

I can tell you that I can go days, months, and even years before I finish a project. I do finish 1 in 5 projects, and have at least 20 plus to choose from. And that doesn’t include the new projects that I start at least once every 2 weeks.
