The mobile swap is officially closed. Over 100 people signed up to participate, which was completely unexpected and a little overwhelming. I had a system in place to match everyone up with partners (those who wanted baby mobiles and those who wanted to make them and vice versa) but it was not without flaws, so if there is anyone out there who didn't get a partner or has some other concern please email me and I will try to sort it out. I set up a flickr group for the mobile and there are only 25 members, so get over there and sign up. Everyone wants to see the cool mobiles you are making.
I have an idea for a mobile that I am pretty excited about, but I can not get moving. I have a great new studio, but it's in the basement and it is so. damn. cold. down there. Shit it's cold up here--I think it's maybe 5 degrees outside. The picture is of one of the shelves (here's another) above my sink--I am actually washing dishes to keep my hands warm these days. I need some sort of kick in the pants to get sewing again. What do you do when all you can do is think of great ideas, but not get around to actually doing any of them?
