So this is Day(I am a day late but not a dollar short) and trying to do the 2nd assignment

 try making changes to blog title and tagline to properly capture identity of self and blog. 

Seldom has anything caused me such angst as this. Change my name? GoofingOff? But GoofingOff is me, so me. I am goofing off whenever I am on the computer (not even playing games), sewing, cooking. Anything that is non-nursing is goofing off. I am able to try new things, challenge myself, make mistakes, do-overs when necessary, or nothing if I so desire…. so changing my name is not an option. GoofingOff Sewing is all that; challenging one’s self to try new ideas, new plans, new projects, frog when necessary and do it over (or donate it to charity….that works, too) so no name change, but a new tagline…..that’s something else entirely.

I’ve tried to come up with new tags before….cute, catchy phrases like those ad folks on Madison Avenue do. For instance:

#sewitup….#sewsomething…..#sewon (as in Keep Calm and Sew on…I

kind of like it in that context) and my tried and true “GoofingOff…It’s what I do best” (which unfortunately says nothing about crafting or sewing. Sounds more like I am hanging out on the beach with a margarita in my hand).

Recently a friend came over and said “So this is where the magic begins.” i took a second look at my surroundings…my humble abode with art glass in different shapes and colors in the windows, handmade art (my hubby made awesome wrought iron art…I am so proud) and photography on my walls, wire sculptures on the mantle and hanging everywhere, quilts on the beds, and I saw the magic she saw (I also saw a dirty floor but we are not discussing my housekeeping skills at this moment)…..which leads me to my new tagline.

“Triangle” by Dan Patterson. Wrought iron. I love geometric shapes. Bold and simple.

Drumroll, please,

“Make magic one stitch at a time”

I’m not making the magic…..GoofingOff Sewing exists to help others make magic.

How cool is that?

So, what do y’all think of the new tagline? Magical?
