A good book can entertain you. A great book can change you. It can interest you in previously unthought of things. It can inspire you to try something new. It can awaken a part of your soul long slumbering.
Outlander has done all of these things for me. I picked up a pen, started gardening, renewed my interest in herbs, invested in chickens and a small coop, and now…well, now I am trying something new…
I find that sewing is comforting. And I like the creativity it offers. I like enough that I opened an Etsy store so I could share some of the things I am making.
I have serveral “Outlander” inspired items and, because I am a big geek, I am also working on some Harry Potter inspired items.
Also, in case I haven’t complained about it here, my office often feels something like the Arctic Tundra, so I have even come up with some officey looking fingerless gloves crafted from fleece so that I can stay warm enough to still type.
If you are interested, you can find these items (and more!) at my Etsy store (ThePrintAndPlaidCo). I try to have new items listed every day or so. So please check back often.
I am currently trying to figure out how to balance sewing, and writing, and working full time, and spending time with my mom as she fights cancer, and also taking kiddos to football and color guard. But I am here, and I am hanging on, and (some days) that is enough.
