…really is an inborn concept. I think! Yesterday I was talking to the owner of and we happened upon the subject of mundane things. We both realized something great about each other…. just how much we’re turned off by "systems". Let me elaborate for a minute here: She mentioned something about the fact that the moments when she feels the need to create come so random. I went on to say that that’s what being creative should be. The spontaneity of our ideas are most creative and/or successful when they fall from the sky or pop into our heads out of nowhere. I have literally gotten up at 4 am and sketched or sewn or built a scale model. Sometimes I’ve done my best work; other times I had to re-visit my original thoughts at a later time. None the less, these are fun times for me. The moment when my creations are set up systematically is the moment when I’m going to lose interest. God bless those of us who are able to go to your 9 to 5’s everyday and do the same thing over and over and not get bored or discouraged. I haven’t been successful at it, yet. Furthermore the one or two jobs that I had where this [system] was required didn’t last long at all. Cookie cutting is not my thing and I’m ok with that for now! By the way, the pic is of bib and square sets that used to be available at They're sold out because during my trip to SC last month I sold out of them and lots of other bib related items. I call the item 'square' because they have so many uses: burp cloth, changing pad, cover-up, etc. They're actually rectangular in shape, as well. If you like it, you can do an alchemy request at for a made to order set.
