One of the advantages of being disorderly is that one is constantly making exciting discoveries. -A.A. Milne
So, what’s this blog all about? It’s a question we’ve been working on for some time. Sure, we can tell you all about what we’re up to, but what else? Well, it certainly won’t be advice on how to be organized. Our apartment has craft supplies from one end to the other. There are end tables with bits of yarn and bowls with random buttons. Our windowsills have tins filled with beads and markers, while our dining room table is a battleground where dinner rarely wins.
We tackled this question over tea at the Julius Meinl cafe, a local gem. And why were we there? Here’s a hint- we probably won’t be writing a motivational blog, either. Crafting at home is a happy thing, but we lose our focus when we’re trying to accomplish anything else. It doesn’t matter how important a task is, we’d rather just be playing with threads and beads and shiny things.
Are these things so bad? Cheerful clutter and a love of handmade…it could be worse. (Although, the guy in this house sincerely hopes it does not get worse.) So, we’ll be real with you. You’ll get our stories from the crafty trenches in all their felted, hand-stitched, and crocheted detail. We’ll keep you updated on our new projects, our latest adventures in Chicago and beyond, and how much we love cupcakes. Because, man, do we love cupcakes.
