Do You Do What You Love?

The thing I've enjoyed most about working at Mad Hatter General Store is meeting people and finding out what makes them tick. 

It fascinates me in particular, to learn what hobbies and interests people have, and what they do for a creative outlet. The range of talent I'm seeing is impressive, from woodwork to needlework and everything in-between. Wouldn't it have been just grand if we all had done what we really enjoyed doing for a living, no matter what that was, instead of following the herd and doing what we were expected to do? 

So much wasted talent I say! I've always believed that if you do what you are passionate about, the money will follow. People love to be around others who have enthusiasm, and want to be part of it.

I recently met a young woman who was definitely born in the wrong era. She shyly brought her hand-stitched garments in for me to have a look at, and I was literally blown away. How could someone this talented be unknown? 

Her eye for texture and tone, combined with her love of silk and lace magically transform material into ethereal, romantic, simply gorgeous garments. Picture yourself on a white steed galloping through the forest with your long, golden hair flowing behind you. 

Now imagine what you might be wearing.

Robin's Wing Art Wear is now proudly offered at Mad Hatter General Store. Life was meant to be fun! Don't pay attention if anyone told you otherwise  :   )
