Learning New Things Now vs Then

WP_20140107_003This morning on my way to work while wearing my newly knitted scarf, I was appreciating how easy it is in this day and time to learn new things. I went back to when my mom use to knit and thought about how if she wanted to learn a new stitch, pattern or whatever, she would have to go to the library or buy a book. Yesterday I learned a new stitch by typing in a few key words on Youtube. In less than 5 minutes I learned a new knitting stitch and implemented it in my knitting and have made plans for a new project with what I had just learned.

My husband and I have taught ourselves many things thanks richard lampworkto Youtube and the world wide web. We took up lampworking recently and learned everything we’ve done so far from videos. There isn’t much in this day and time that  there isn’t a video how-to for. Within minutes you can learn just about anything your heart desires. What a fantastic time we live in!

Here’s to always learning!

Many Blessings,

How to Find a 4 Leaf Clover

The art of finding four leaf clovers is far more simple than one might think… It’s seeing beyond the sea of ordinary to find a small glimpse of extraordinary!|

How quickly can you find the one with 4 leaves?

Adjust your view, clear your mind of all else and there it is… right in front of you.

Once you find it .. it’s yours… it only needs to be found… not also picked.

Dream Catcher How-To

Dream Catchers are traditionally hung over or near the bed … good dreams filter through the web and trickle down over the sleeper and the bad dreams are caught in the web and burned away as the sun comes up in the morning.

Dream Catchers are said to not only capture the bad dreams but also the bad thoughts and ideas.

There are many stories told as to where the origin of the dream Catcher came from but all end up with the same use and meaning.

Here is a how-to I created to teach you how to weave a dream catcher.

I use a metal hoop in the video but many materials can be used.. traditionally willow was used.

Below the video are a  few examples of dream catchers I’ve created.

Many Blessings,
