|Steal Like An Artist by Austin Kleon
This struck home for me because I love being in the kitchen cooking away, the studio stitching like a crazy person and the garden watching it all happen. When I read articles about blogging and choosing one focus it makes me a little nutty. I'm not sure what to leave out because it wouldn't be me if I had to cut out the others. This is not a new problem for me. I went to art school to study textiles thinking I would then narrow down my focus. Unfortunately I came away having had an amazing time but about a zillion more tricks in my bag. Afterwards I was not a fun person to live with because I kept trying to figure out what path to take. I eventually decided to focus on something where I could use as many techniques as I wanted. Austin Kleon gave me permission to revel in it all. I'm grateful.
