Welcome!

Misty,
Welcome to the Kraziness!
Just read your thread, and it looks like your journey will be a memorable one.
Keep going, keep posting, and don't sell the action figures, specially if they're old!

Misty, we all know that if you're rich you're eccentric. If you're poor you're just weird.

You're fitting right in here.

You guys are the best! I feel like sharing my progress helps make letting go of things a lot easier. It can be overwhelming at times, and it's nice to take a break, hop on the computer, and remind myself of what my motivation is. Some of the pictures in the gallery and on the conversion threads are super inspiring!

I'm pretty sure we will end up getting a storage unit or renting a condo to keep some of our stuff that just won't fit on the bus. I'm not selling off my grandmother's china, for instance, but I don't think it would do too well rattling around on the road either! Still, for the most part, I think that it would be better to let a lot of the stuff go to a new home where it can bring someone else joy, rather than leaving it packed up in a box somewhere, forgotten and unused. Even my 7 year old is on board with that - she has been cheerfully searching for toys that she doesn't play with very much so that maybe some other child can enjoy them more!

I stumbled across this picture today:


Yep, that's a spinning wheel... on a bus! So I clicked on their blog, and yep - they totally drive the bus around and shear sheep on the road for fiber art!


Haha, I nearly snorted my coffee out my nose. Just goes to show that anything really is possible.

I live on an old sheep ranch, but there haven't been sheep here for 50 years. Since you found the traveling wool art show after I imagined it, what do you think of dying sheep's wool before it's sheered. Lots of pastel sheep running around in the pasture?

Sure, why not?


Of course, I like the plaid variant!

Ok, now I'm out of sheep ideas. Just had to take a sheep shot anyway.

Those first sheep must be Easter sheep, while this last one is definitely Scottish. How else would they make plaid sweaters?
