It's no secret that I live in the Midwest. Deer hunting is a BIG DEAL here for men and many women. It's something whole families seem to enjoy together. Not me, but that's ok. People do eat the meat and the deer need to be thinned out so I don't hit one with my car. They can really be hazardous.
I told you that, so I can tell you this ...
My hair stylist contacted me today with an idea. She wants me to make some orange hats for hunters. She'll place one in the store and take orders for me. She wants one for herself and said, "I know yours will be warmer than anything I can get at WalMart." She wants a special design which I think I can do pretty easily of my loom. So, I'll be making some cash from that I'm sure. I'll give her a cut because she's being so good to me. If I am lucky, I will also end up with my jewelry in her shop.
I believe she is one of those people that God places in our lives to give us a hand up and to let us know when we have stumbled on to the right path. I'm so thankful to have her as a friend. I feel blessed.
Naturally, I had to do some yarn shopping online tonight. I've got some funky blaze orange yarn on the way. I've found a great place where I can buy in bulk for the items I need. I also got a few things for earrings and bracelets.
Move over Martha Stewart, I'm heading straight for ya!
