Creativity Corner: Masks and Pillows

… or really just a pillow, but y’know.

With the whole COVID-19 thing going on, masks have become important. And regardless on whether homemade masks actually do anything (or not) … they’ve become the currency we pay if we want to venture out somewhere, so whatever.

Since I’m a bit crafty, I decided to make some (since purchasing was an issue in the early days). I was able to track down some Colorado Rockies fabric and made both B and I a mask. One of my old managers from the ‘Bux saw the photos on IG and asked if I could make Rockies masks for her soon-to-be stepdaughter and husband. Obviously I said yes … and since I had leftover fabric, I also made a pillow.

Cool, huh? I made a different style for myself which I obviously forgot to photograph – otherwise, I would have put it here. I recently was finally able to track down some Vegas Golden Knights fabric, so I’ll make a few out of that for both B and one of his pilot buddies.

And maybe then I’ll remember to take some photos.

world on fire
maybe it always has been

maybe it’s human nature
maybe it’s conditioning –
social,
media,
governmental,
religious
maybe it’s just the institutions
maybe it should go back to the people
(but how do you prevent corruption?
people in any sort of power have always been
and will always somehow be
corruptible)
listen
i don’t have the answers
i’m doing what i can right now
researching
reading
listening
(asking questions only for answers i can otherwise not find)
educating myself
which, in the usual scheme of things,
makes me know that i am ever ignorant –
we all are –
and if we pretend otherwise,
that’s the stupidest
and maybe most dangerous
of all.
so.
what to do?
educate.
learn.
love.
be kind.
get angry if you must
(unavoidable at times, i know)
but above all,
please,
love, kindness,and
hope.
