i'm making a dress

{staring in the mirror contemplating
the unwanted poofiness of the first draft.}

and a quilt
and bowties
and hemming pants
and two bags
and a pillow
and dolls
and a mad mess.

waiting for the simplicity of lists.
why does one believe it is possible
to do 50 million things at once?

maybe I should just make

and everyone's happy.

Sometimes the answer is as simple as a pencil. Loved that from conference.

I try to live my life as simple as possible. The complexities of life have kind of forced me to. And I am glad.

My favorite talk, Alice.

"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication."

"Strength comes not from frantic activity."


"Love is spelled T.I.M.E."

Loved it all.

I am one of simplicity, but my making brain doesn't seem to understand the concept. It takes creative discipline. Of which I am no good.

Yep... keep em fed and keep em happy!

I agree with Alice 'as simple as possible'.

That is my husbands Motto... he just can't do it if its not simple. It's not that he can't but he doesn't want to.

You'll figure out the dress I am sure among the entire list of your to do's.

I thought he said it was spelled
"G-I-M-E" Gi me and I was confused for a second. :) Jennifer
