Self Care is Not a Dirty Word #WhatTheCussUnintendedHiatus

Sometimes life hands you a pile of shit challenges and you just have to sift through them one at a time and put other things on the back burner. It’s important to recognize priorities and make sure that you are healthy, happy and strong before moving on to the next thing and the next thing and the next thing.

At PYC we took a very much unintended hiatus. Personal life, family obligations and all around health and wellbeing concerns forced us to surrender to some much needed self care. (I’ve learned that self care is not a dirty word, as much as some people may want you to believe.)

I will be digging out my knitting needles soon, however, because I’m feeling the need to be creative again.

In Your Dreams

I’m pretty sure I am the most tired person in the world right now. Yes. That’s a real thing and you can’t convince me that it’s not. I feel like I’m about to fall asleep on my keyboard right now. On my lunch break. At noon. -_-

Most nights, I settle in around 7pm or 8pm, making myself comfortable on our big squishy couch with my little wiener dogs, my latest knitting project, my love, and a good TV show…. and in about an hour I’m watching the TV show play out on the back of my eye lids. It’s just how I roll. I wake up early with lots of energy (yes, I am the dreaded morning person) and I’m out like a light before 10pm every evening.

Last night however, I was determined to get a project done and so I stayed up until 2 in the morning finishing a District 12 Cowl for a young woman in South Carolina. I probably would not have done that if this wasn’t my second attempt on the project. The first was much too large for her. So I ended deconstructing it and making it smaller.. It’s taken us a while to get to this point, but I’m hoping she will love it.

And I’ve learned a very valuable lesson…. No more all nighters for me.

Penny knows what’s up. Sleep little puppers, sleep.

Craft Markets

Detroit Urban Craft Fair

Guess who was accepted into the Detroit Handmade show for a second year?! That’s right – Purl You Crazy! Jen and I will be back and even more excited than ever. This is one of our favorite shows to attend and to vend. If you’ve never been to the Detroit Urban Craft Fair… GET YOUR LIFE TOGETHER! You need to go. It’s an amazing show at the Masonic Temple in Detroit full of straight up bad ass makers and artists. ❤
