This is horrifyingly true! Wonder why that is….
The History of Typography by Ben Barrett-Forrest
A lesson in Typography. #typenerd
I do know that waiting on God requires the willingness to bear uncertainty, to carry within oneself the unanswered question, lifting the heart to God about it whenever it intrudes upon one’s thoughts. Its easy to talk oneself into a decision that has no permanence – easier sometimes than to wait patiently.
So I changed some things on the ol blog. (not that I’m a blogging champ or anything, I just thought it sounded nice).
So I went back and read some of my old posts and came across my first experience with my neti pot. here.
And by the end of it I had named my neti pot and confessed how utterly unimpressed I was with her. Svetlana, apparently.
Well, here’s an update. Svetlana and I are friends. She stayed by my side throughout that terrible spring. We cleaned the pollen-y cobwebs out of my nasal cavities together, it was like picnics in the meadow. I couldn’t be happier with how our slightly rocky beginnings blossomed into a lovely friendship.
And now that the cold air is moving in and my sinus cavities are are feeling left out of the infestation of infection everyone else is experiencing….I haz sinus pressure. Ohhh, Svetlana?! You still sleepin’, sweets? And afterward catching up it’s like, Ahhh! No more headache!
I know, it’s still weird. But you can’t beat not having to deal with sinus issues just by lettin’ a lil water flow in one side and out the other. I didn’t need a dr, rx or bed rest for that! All you haters out there, I think that means I win.
Sale Alert! Holstee, starts October 22, 2011.
This is your life. Do what you love. Words to live by, and words that start off Holstee’s Manifesto, posted or tweeted over 100,000 times and printed on this typographic poster. Practicing what it preaches, Holstee (a combination of ‘holster’ and ‘tee shirt’) designs with a conscience. Life is short, live your dream!
How would you describe your creative process?
I had to laugh when I read this question because my creative process goes a little something like this: I get an idea, YAY!, start knitting, take some notes, rip it apart and huff and puff (and probably whine and cry a little too). I go through that cycle for about two days until I’ve figured out the perfect pattern and it’s YAY again!
I read this in a feature bio/interviewy thing on Etsy and couldn’t help but exclaim, ‘That’s exactly what I do!!!!’
