“It’s very hard to have ideas. It’s very hard to put yourself out there, it’s very hard to be vulnerable, but those people who do that are the dreamers, the thinkers, and the creators. They are the magic people of the world.” 

–Amy Poehler, Smart Girls: Ask Amy

The above quote inspired this Make it Magic Month blog posting frenzy after a long hiatus. Ideas are not the hard part for me. Like the Red Queen, I’m the sort who tends be a believer in “six impossible ideas before breakfast.”  Grabbing an idea and holding on to it long enough to make it manifest is more difficult and putting myself out there is definitely the hardest part and does not come naturally.

Make It Magic Month was also inspired by Mystère (below), who found me at the corner of healthy and happy.  He jumped into the car and came home and that was that. But cats are weird.  Living up to his name, Mystère, disappeared to parts unknown at the end of the month.


I didn’t want Mystère to go away and I’m hoping he’ll return.  I don’t want Make It Magic  to disappear either. There are too many unfinished projects to complete and having a bloggy post-it goal helps keep me focused on manifesting the ideas and sharing what comes of them, so this will continue on to November.

By the way, for Day 31 (Halloween!) of Make It Month, my creation was this costume for the Murdering Crows’ show at Growlers:

Cat that Ate the Crow

Yes, that’s a crow feather in my mouth. The kitty ears I made of faux fur and sequins.  Meowrow!
