Don’t Allow Money to Crush Your Creativity!

Wednesday’s are reserved for Creative Mojo with Mark Lipinski’s guests and new creative personalities that you’ll want to know and learn about. Of course, I sprinkle things happening on Pickle Road throughout the week.

    In Marie Bostwick’s latest book, Madelyn takes thrift store items, old sweaters and junk jewelry to embellish quilts and other projects. Hit the thrfit stores, 2nd hand shops or Goodwill to get those extra items. Or if no money, use plastic 🙂

    I enjoyed your thought today Mark. As a single mom, and teacher at a small Catholic school, I have a limited hobby budget. I love to quilt, so I am constantly on the lookout for bargains, and ways to use repurposed fabric. Yes-wish I could afford all of the luscious, new fabric lines, but for now, I will make beautiful items with what I have on hand. It is much more positive to be thankful for what you have, than for what you have not!

    This is so true! When I just follow my heart and use combinations that probably wouldn’t appeal to everyone…that’s when my best quilts happen!
