This article from the NY Times was posted on the Shiny Little Things blog by Cynthia of Ornamentea. It was amusing and it made sense that in a down economy people learn to make things and once again use thier hands. We stay at home, where it's less expensive, and make wonderful handmade items for ourselves and others. I think this is fantastic! We all need to learn how to be creative and work with our hands and minds...fine tune our small motor skills. This article goes with a news report I heard that in a bad economy lipstick sales increase. The top selling color is red like what Marilyn Monroe wore. Lipstick is something you can buy rather inexpensive and it makes you look and feel better. So ladies, go buy that tube of red lipstick, put it on and start creating! You look marvelous as you bead, knit, crochet, felt, quilt, make jewelry, paint, sculpt, glue, sketch, or anything that is creative and makes you feel good.
Get your Sass on!
