Hope you are having a smashing week. By the time you read this I will have taken a road trip to Charleston, SC to see my daughter and celebrate her 24th birthday. It is hard to believe 24 years have passed so fast.
Yesterday (I am a week ahead of myself so there is a slight time warp here) I had one of those lovely visits that reminds me that I need to see my people more often and we hermit like creative folk need to go out in the world more occasionally.
In my continuing cleaning out of stuff I decided to part with a box full of scrap paper that I have been trying to do something with for years. Evidently I have not had any luck with that since it was all still there. My friend Juanita has a kids craft time at her church so I have started donating my unused supplies to her. I decided to drop off the box yesterday and caught her at home.
We have very similar work and personalities. Both work from home in creative jobs and run our own creative businesses. We are both serious introverts who happily work away in our own little worlds. BUT get us together and we can talk for hours about just about anything. By the time I left her house my brain was bouncing with ideas for a problem I had been trying to sort out about my Etsy shop and hopefully I left her with some ideas as well.
It is hard to find those people who make up your tribe when you work solo, but we need to. They add so much to our lives when we make the time to catch up, sort out, problem solve and laugh together.
If you get a chance, check out Juanita’s Etsy shop and tell her hello. Now, go find your people and make a visit.
