Recently I wrote a blog about Pencils and Pens/Pens and Pencils. Some of the comments I received from this blog triggered how much I liked physically writing letters. I wrote with my fountain pen most of the time, and with my calligraphy pen, I still have both today. Thinking about these things reminded me of other things I did that brought me joy. When I was six years old, I learned and fell in love with embroidery.
Mother would iron-on images from a paper onto a pillowcase (image transfers), table scarf, or dish towel that I would embroider. I liked the feel of the hoop in my hand and the flowers to bloom, but I was not too fond of the needle pricks. I was working with Mother’s supply of embroidery threads at that time.
As I got older, around ten years of age, I went with my sisters to assist the neighbors in putting in their tobacco. With my earnings at the end of the week, I bought the necessary items for the embroidery projects. I stashed the rest away to purchase school clothes and supplies. By this time, I had graduated from simple images to images with more content. Through the years, I created some beautifully embroidered items, many from drawing my patterns. I also loved to paint, and the pleasure of these creative ways ceased when MrArthur began to abide within my joints.
There is something therapeutic in doing the things you love. No matter how minute you may think your gift, it is not. Your talents are unique to you and will bring joy when you exercise yourself in there use. When you open up and take steps, you may be surprised to see what you accomplish in this life. Be it in business or savoring life and sharing with others.
Getting back to my embroidery and painting, the love of beautiful colors that I created on cloth, and then the canvases brought a lift to me. I love to see the different shades and colors that complement each other come together to render a painting, whether on cloth or the canvases, with threads and needles or with paints and brushes.
As with the pencil and pen, We go to the store when we use up what we have, and purchase new ones. We rarely think about how an idea for the items we use came about, how they were made and brought to market. When we run out of the art supplies, we do as we do with the pencil, go to the store, purchase the embroidery thread, needles, and hoop. Likewise, with the painting, we buy canvases, paintbrushes, paint, paint knife, etc.
From a vision and dream, men built companies with a determination to bring their ideas to market. These businesses produce items that would fill a need or purpose in our lives and make that purpose easier. Thus necessity is the mother of invention. We rarely think about how an idea for the items we use came about, how they were made and brought to market. We do not give credit to the various companies who have blessed us with fulfilling our needs. We, in turn, have also blessed these companies and made them prosperous from our purchases. Grumblings are made from time to time about the increase in said items’ prices, but in fairness to them, the economy sometimes requires they raise prices to stay in business. I am aware that some companies would take advantage, but overall I feel most have integrity and want what is right for the consumer.
More and more, I am made aware of what it takes to build great companies from the inception and what it takes for them to operate and produce the products they manufacture. My awareness has come about since I partnered with Compumatrix Networks International and have seen first hand what it takes to bring a company from an idea and a dream to fruition. The owner and associates spent months and many long hard hours to render the proposed concept and vision from one courageous man, into reality.
