The Pixies Are at it Again!

I read an article in Faeries Magazine that was written by Wendy Froud.  She was writing as an apology for why her husband, artist Brian Froud, was unable to write the article himself.  (He writes a page in every issue of the magazine).  She said the Faeries had stolen his creativity, taken it on wild adventures, and then given it back, and he had found himself gripped with such an insatiable urge to paint and sketch and had disappeared for several weeks into his little British studio to capture that creativity before the faeries ran off with it once more.

My inspiration grips me in much the same chaotic fervor that it reaches for Brian Froud.  And having it described as ‘the faeries running away with it” seems to fit more than anything else.  And seeing as how I make faery wings and fantasy accessories, it would make sense.

This sweater has been my inspiration, and indeed I feel the urge to underake my own little “sweater quest” to see it’s creation.  The wild blend of colors and texture is fascinating.

I have been knitting a lot lately – stock busting, designing, and getting ready for the holiday rush.  My projects lately have involved lace as a way of hanging dangly earrings.

This inspiration surge has stretched as far as my barista life as well.  I am experimenting with mocha variations, and have hit on 2 that I really like.  One is a green tea mocha, which is more earthy to the palate.  The other is my little sip of heaven: chamomile.  It has a luxuriously rich taste to it; sweet and calming.

So, with coffee and knitting in hand, I am ready to get back to work!
