It is now weeks since MAKEVENTION, a convention of makers sponsored by
Bloominglabs here in Bloomington, IN. I recall the evening before the
event, leaving the tea cave, Ursula, and wondering why I was still in
town. Finally as I was about to turn onto the road out of town, there
before me in the right lane was a maker rig just pulling into town. I
knew where they were headed and found them the next day to offer a
welcome and hello.
Here Yuko and BJ at my booth. She is demonstrating her Otedama
made of repurposed kimono silk from Japan. See the plate with crumbs
above the sign? That is what remains of my delicious bread offered as a
base for those sampling my jelly.
The jellies went over beautifully and to my surprise and delight, so did my first ever bake from my sour dough culture!
My daughters and I are taking a Sourdough Bread Baking class online
through a platform called Craftsy. It is my first such experience
taking a class via the web.This is something I am able to share with my
daughters, though we explore on different schedules from different
locations. I am having such a great time learning a lot and finding
so many people passionate about sourdough.
This thing with the living yeast goes deep. There is someone with a
starter that has a 100 year lineage! Since beginning this class, I
have made a few quick breads, crackers with the Chocolate Seasoning that
are a huge hit, baguettes, boules and now ready to begin incorporating
my jelly and other herbal blends!
Boules! Yum Yum.
At this time, I am considering having some of my sourdough creations at
Winter Fair in November in the Bloomington Convention Center. That
will depend on my energy levels and planning.
I always enjoy hearing the different descriptions people offer for my
jellies, books, and other artistic maker works. I am still amazed with
the flexagon book structures and do delight in sharing them. Most of
the folks here are techie, sharing collections, such as the IU Puzzle
Collection guy or the Creative Anachronistic.
If I had given it thought, I might have imagined there to be a puzzle
collection, and now I have had a glimpse into the holdings at IU. Maybe
a perfect adventure on a cold winters day. When I go, perhaps, I
will take with me an example of the puzzles I make special from time to
In the booth beside me was an amazing group of women with fiber, one
with a drop spindle, others waving knitting needles and crochet hooks
and all surrounded with wonderful soft woven shawls and other objects!
Since then, I continue my updating journey through the website and other
abandoned web resources. Why do I do this? Because, I choose to earn
my living with something that I enjoy and want to put energy into
creating the opportunity for you to purchase, enjoy and appreciate as
And this is how I joyfully create resources to craft a sustainable
lively hood that allows me to honor my financial commitments as I share
