Do you remember that little book called “All I Really Needed to Know I Learned in Kindergarten?”
Over the weekend I realized that I may have taken that too much to heart.
I was talking to a woman at a party who turned out to be an elementary school teacher. She was very excited about her career and what she was doing with the kids. It was infectious and I was carried along with her enthusiasm until she mentioned what she planned to have them do this week.
And that’s when it hit me. My entire business model:
Glue stuff to wood!
was pretty much her lesson plan for Tuesday.
At first I found it a bit depressing. But then I realized that perhaps I’ve merely come full circle. Maybe I’m one of those people who found their true calling at a very young age but just didn’t realize it.
And then I felt even better when I realized those stupid first graders are doing it for free!
So I spent the rest of the weekend photographing new stuff I’d glued to wood.
You see my wildly creative mind has exactly two modes: Panic! and Nap.
New ideas only seem to come to me when I have almost no time to execute them. My panicked build up for Unique LA earlier this month was the perfect time for my brain to suddenly burst forth with fresh thoughts.
Then, thanks to my brother-in-law, who has an amazing knack for finding incredible web site resources, I found these awesome, funny, vintage romance comic books. They totally cracked me up and I thought they’d make fun gifts.
OK, I’m gonna go swing by the school and see what the
competition kids are up to.
