Silly Turnip LIVES!
I don't usually post on the weekend b/c I want to spend every moment I can with Jon. But, I just have to tell you about what he did for me! He bought me a domain name! Most husbands buy flowers or chocolates (he's gotten me both in the last 2 weeks) but my husband has bought me a domain on the internet. sillyturnip.com Yep, I have a .com! He also created a logo for me (click on the Silly Turnip link on the bottom right to see. It's under the Label category)There is nothing on my .com yet but there will be. I have plans! :o) Do you know, I feel very close to God when I'm creating something. It's almost like my needle and thread are magical or something. I know it's not really but it feels like it. When I start sewing I feel like a door has opened and there are endless possibilities before me. What kind of sweet face should my little critter have? I absolutely adore cutting up old clothes and forming them into something unexpected and new! Is she into flowers or bows? What kind of cool tights would she wear? It's like I'm creating an actual living being. I know I'm not but it feels like it. I wonder what God felt when he created us. The endless possibilities. The endless combos. Everyone has an absolutely unique fingerprint! I heard a song on the radio yesterday that kept repeating 'There is nothing good in me, only Jesus." I don't agree with that song. I might have years ago but I think the very fact that God made us means there is something good in us. Now, our sin nature, that is NOT good. Anyway I don't want to theologianize right now....I want to sew! Check out Wyatt's new monkey I made at midnight a few days ago....and then of course there is Maria, which you have probably seen on my Flikr site. I love her! She is bossy and very into singing loudly above anyone else. She knows how to make french toast and believes that her next door neighbor has a magical fruit tree in the backyard. She's read a little too much Narnia. Yes, I know I'm a bit crazy...but it's fun! :o)
