"Cultivating Thought" is from an old Chipotle bag--their Authors series. I saved the brown ink quote from the side panel, " We all, at some point, grow old and acquire other qualities, and these can always be turned to good advantage." -Paulo Coelho
The old adage, "Measure twice, cut once," is still sound advice, and that is why it is an adage and not a cliche. "Shoot twice, glue once," is just as sound, and it's another reason man invented the smart phone. LINECO adhesive and sequins are so compatible it's almost scary. Once they make contact though it's a fight to disconnect the two. So if you're gluing sequins, do a dry run first, take photographs, have a look-see from a different perspective. When you're sure--it's smooth sailing. In the end a mistake is a mistake only if you say it is.
So. I set out to tell a story about 7gypsies. What's a letter but parts of your story? Thinking I had it "in the bag," I set to work telling it for someone special. Have you ever set out to create one thing, only to have it morph into something totally different for someone else? Old bags have good qualities that can be turned to good advantage. Yes?
