Yesterday was day two for me. I thought all day long but nothing came to me until late in the day it hit me. Lately, I have been making these little fabric houses. They are just little funky, stuffed houses that are ornamental and fun. I had thought these would make fun little gifts for people who have recently bought a home. A house warming gift. But that idea was brought about as a marketing idea. I'm always making all this stuff and trying to think of ways to sell it.
Then, DUH! It hit me. My sister and her husband recently bought a beautiful home. Why could I not make her a special little house. Usually when these thoughts occur, I selfishly think how that will keep me from making something that I might can sell. Well, it's not like I"m poor! I have a day job. I'm just obsessed with the idea of making this art thing my day job some day!!!!Anyway, I decided to make Rhea (my sister) and her hubby (Jesse) a little house warming house. I spent all evening after work on this. I even embroidered their last name on it. I hope that it will be a blessing to their home. I also wrote a funny little blessing poem to add to her house. But that is a surprise.
It felt good to do this and I know when she gets it she will be delighted. Or at least she will act like it for me because she is just good to me like that. I love my sisters! Hmmm.....I wonder what gift I will give today.
PS: I have always struggled with the idea of when you give you are supposed to keep it to yourself. What are your thoughts on this. Teach me teach me.Have a beautiful and giving day!
