I’ve recently picked up a new hobby, weaving. Super random, I know but we are currently in the midst of redecorating our master bedroom and lately I have been obsessing over finding the perfect woven wall hanging to accent my newly purchased West Elm side table. My husband could literally care less about any of the design choices I chose for our house so when I kept incessantly sending him wall hang after wall hang he suggested I invest in a loom and try it out for myself. He’s never very thrilled about spending money on something that doesn’t serve a substantial purpose so for him a woven wall hanging was a complete waste of money. I kid you not; it took a lottttt of convincing to even get him on board with the floor length mirror and side table ha—I literally had to stand on my bed’s footboard to see if my shoes went with my outfit every day. HELLO?!?!Like it was totally a necessity! Anyways to him, weaving one on my own would have a purpose.
I hate to admit it but for once in my life I am actually thankful for my husband’s stinginess. (Now don’t get any ideas Chappy this is a onetime occurrence!) If it wasn’t for him I would never have purchased the loom and discovered a new hobby that I am utterly obsessed with. Since my day job is the complete opposite of creative it is so refreshing to finally get to do something that stirs my artistic juices again. I weave before work, after work, on the weekends… Yes I have morphed into a complete grandma. I swear I would have a wall hanging in every room if Chappy allowed it. Since he doesn’t though, I’ve decided to sell the extra ones on Etsy so I can keep up my newly found hobby without driving my husband completely nuts.
