Prim Fever Again
Today I went with Patrick to our newest client's store. I was taking pictures to use for their logos and web graphics. Oh my goodness! It completely restored my prim obsession.
The store is called Oh My Stars and is in Salem, VA.
If this were smell-o-blog, you would be in heaven right now. The candle that permeated the store was made by a local and was in, what looked like, a coffee can that had been grubbed up.
I didn't want to leave the store. Of course, I came home wanting to decorate in the prim style again. I was a good girl and did my work first, but all this evening I've been dragging out my prim stitcheries and such and redecorating.
Patrick saw it coming. While we were in the store I said, "You know I have to go home and redecorate now." He said, "I know." :D
Prim is the only kind of art and decorating that just comes naturally to me. I don't know what it is but I don't have to spend tons of time looking at everyone else's stuff to get it. (though I still spend tons of time looking at everyone else's stuff, just because it's fun!)
I've decided to embrace it. I changed my etsy shop back to prim and I'm going to be making some things to go in there. As I looked around Oh My Stars, I saw so many stitcheries that could have been "mine" and I realized it makes sense for me to make those things and sell them. Plus, I just love them. Especially this time of year when we desire a sense of coziness.
So, that explains the new blog background after I had just changed it. Like I said, I'm going to embrace it.
Yes, I have a hippy, new age, woo-woo side but there is something about primitive that just feels natural to me. So why not just go with it, right? It seems to be my nature to go "whole hog" once I like something. That's probably why I always get burnt out. ha!
I have a feeling I'm going to go to sleep tonight with visions of homespun in my head and it's going to be very difficult to make myself sit at the computer doing my work when I want to be making stuff and redecorating!
