What a Monday it is over here. Frantic and new. Rushing around like I usually do but with a fresh adventure in my immediate sight. Immediate as in now. Like I shouldn't even be sitting here typing this post. I have to get ready.
I am starting work again after being home with the kids for almost two years.
I'm not gonna ramble on about all that this means to me and how it's affecting me, mainly my heart, but for now I will say that for those of you who don't know, I work freelance in reality/non-fiction television and I am starting work on a show for the Sundance Channel. It's a 22-week project. 4 days a week. For 22 weeks. And then it will be over. And my kids will have me back full-time. Until the next time.
The tv business is like this. I've worked freelance my entire career and I don't know it any other way. My man is a freelance editor in television so this is our life. Jumping from project to project. I actually like what I do when I do it so I thought the time was ripe for jumping into a little television gig. Keep my contacts alive and hopefully kick-start my brain again too.
So more on that later....
Check this out.
It makes me so friggin' happy and peaceful just looking at it. Taken at a farm about 45 minutes from my West LA home. Just one of the many reasons I really do dig LA. I have the ocean 5 minutes from me and these pumpkins 45 minutes from me.
I feel all fall-y when I look at these pumpkins. And then I start feeling spooky.
And then I start thinking about these.
These are felt Halloween stockings that my crazy, artistic, and crazily-artistic friend Tory designed and sewed on up. Halloween stockings. For your goodies. Aren't they cool?
You know I am all about digging Etsy stuff and in my spare time, I just love to sit around and play with a needle and thread.
But really. I totally appreciate those who can play with a needle and thread and when a needle and thread churns out something as funky and original and happy as these little stocking guys, it makes me feel as happy as when I look at that pumpkin picture.
My friend Tory and I go way back to our partying 20-something days around the walk streets of Venice Beach. We used to hang out, watch the old "90210" and make Femo stuff together. You know Femo? That clay stuff that you bake? Yeah, we were that cool. We would also drive down to Manhattan Beach together on Friday nights and dance to my dude's rockin' tunes when he played in his rock band. Tory and I are soul sisters in many ways and I have always completely admired her artistic way of living.
So now she's launching her own company called "Felt Up." Her little button is over there in my sidebar. I'm gonna link to her website once it's up and running as in soon.
For now, I am showcasing some of her hand-sewn stockings and if you WANT one of these spooky stockings, email me at:
leemwob AT gmail DOT com.
For a price (and they're not cheap 'cause they're like all handmade and sewn with care and love), I can secure you one of these original creations before Tory gets big and famous for her wacky Felt-Up masterpieces. If one of these ghoulish guys hits your spooky-bone, I'll make sure he gets to you by Halloween.
So how's that for a Monday morning smorgasboard of thoughts?
Wish me luck today.
