I stayed up way too late last night knitting. (#grandmastatus FOR SURE) But I'm excited about new projects, and new ideas, and all of the inspiration I'm feeling right now.
I started knitting a "scarf" (that might actually just become the first section in a huge blanket... We'll see how ambitious I feel) and am so amazed how fast and easy knitting is. Pick it up when you wanna work on it, and set it down when you don't—these are my favourite types of projects.
While knitting, I've been listening to podcasts. Currently in my queue is the entire Coffee with Chrachel feed, and the last couple week's worth of Elise Gets Crafty. Coffee with Chrachel is hilarious, and it's so good for background noise to work to. Justin always asks me what's so funny before he sees that I have headphones in and says, "Are you laughing at that radio show again?" Always, babe. Always.
I've gone on and on Elise's podcast before. She just started season 3(!!!) at the beginning of the year and I'm always excited to listen to her and her guests "talk shop" or creativity or inspiration/motivation.
I also got two new (to me–thanks thrift books!) books in the mail yesterday. East of Eden by John Steinbeck, which I've read about half of before in the past and just never got around to finishing before I had to send it back to the library. I'm excited to dive in head first again.
The other book I got is Craft, Inc. by Meg Mateo Ilasco. I've heard good things about this book and its sister Creative, Inc. I'm excited to read this and learn more about running a small business and the freelance when I read Creative, Inc.
Somehow we are almost done with January. I'm gonna ride the inspiration wave for as long as it lasts.
