Lorraine from Ikat Bag sent me a lovely letter this week about the creativity series which I just had to share a snippet of with you all.

I am so, so awed by the guest posts in this series you’ve got on whip up. I mean, really, really awed … All the women you’ve invited to be part of your guest series are such rich personalities — and have such unique stories. Almost all of them relish running off the beaten path and into the great unknown, pioneering new territories … those stories moved me … Hurrah for women (and their men and children that put up with their madness)!

Hurrah for women indeed! To all of you wonderful people, readers, crafters, women (and men too), who go about their daily lives doing wonderful things, taking chances, raising children and living their lives in a meaningful purposeful way. Hurrah for all of you!

Some of the latest posts in this series of creativity: Cultivate an appreciation for the slow mastery of a craft from Katie at foxflat. :: Blair from wise craft gives us a preview of her crafting space and process :: Creativity requires risk and vulnerability from delia creates :: Memories made creating together from the family at Se7en + 1 :: Lara of Ink & Spindle steps outside the rat race :: Chawne from Completely Cauchy explains her creating process as mistakes becoming opportunities.
