A little Pick Me Up
A couple of weeks ago I had the great pleasure of being a Special Agent at Webstock. It is the most inspiring week of the year, which may be why I drop everything else for 5 days and disappear off the face of the knitty planet .
This year one of the recurring themes was 'craft' - craft your work, take pride, take the time and complete work with love. It all sounds rather huggy-happy-hippy, but it's not. Especially when it's coming from someone super amazing like Jessica Hische or Derek Handley.
Jessica spoke of 'procrastiworking' - and is well known, especially on Pinterest boards, for saying:
Jessica Hische said it, Chris lettered it
When I procrastinate, I knit. Or spin. Or bake. On the right track, yes?
But even doing what you love, a little inspiration can be required. Webstock tends to blow my mind and make me feel a little like I could be doing more, better. So i'm on the hunt for words that work, that help give the extra push needed to keep life and the shop amazing.
This is your life. Do what you love, and do it often.
If you don’t like something, change it. If you don’t like your job, quit.
If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV.
If you are looking for the love of your life, stop; they will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love.

So, I'd like to know - where do you look for inspiration when you need a Pick Me Up? Do you cuddle yarn, a person, or look for words on the interwebs? I'm curious! Share! (plus, if you comment, it's much more exciting than spam bot comments).
