The Weaver's High
They talk about the runner’s high. I, in fact, may have experienced that at one point in my life, when I was running. We all know this. We hear this all the time. Go get high. Run! And some people do but most people do not. So much for that. I have been noticing recently that I can reach this kind of blissful state . . . when I do artwork.

Weaving For The Non-Crafty Among Us
Over the years I have had friends ask me to sew or knit or crochet things for them.
Each time it has annoyed me because, first of all, I don't sew or knit or crochet. And as you know, weaving isn't sewing. It isn't knitting. It isn't crocheting. It isn't even close.
Second, I don't like the idea of people requesting creative work for free.
But third, and this is the one I want to focus on, the idea that some people are "crafty" and that extends to any number of crafts and others "aren't crafty" and therefore can't, encourages those self-named "non-crafty" people not to pursue crafts, whether that be sewing on a button or learning to weave.

Wish Mirrix a Happy Birthday!
If you haven't heard, Mirrix Looms turned 23 years old this month. It's hard to believe that so much time has passed, but it's true! Some of your looms are old enough to have graduated college. When do you think they'll finally settle down and give you grand-looms?
If you'd like to help us celebrate, send Mirrix a birthday message or, even better, a message alongside a picture of your loom or something you've made on your loom. We'll post select pictures and messages to Instagram and Facebook and will even read a few out loud and post the videos!
