How are you going to change your life force today?


She started her post saying she is no one really just a girl dealing with anxiety and depression.... How many on you reading this post have felt that way? Laura Pavy of the Crochet Case who is a mom, and has a business talked the CWA into helping her yarn bomb a stretch of highway that sees lots of tourists four times a year and locals far more often. Above you can see a photo from a local paper in Australia  showing all the lovely ladies involved in this yarn bomb!



Laura is the one in pink and blue jeans! While I have never met Laura in person ( if you come to the us Laura come say hello!!) I have had the privilege to get to know her some online. For the past few weeks I have seen her take a sketch of tiny triangles to 6 inch crochet triangles to a giant metal frame to finally this amazing piece of art!
See all the photos and read her amazing depth into her project here on her blog

Her description of what this means to her is what touched and inspired me . Go to her blog and it's about a page long and is the last picture. I love how she takes her passion for geeky and math and combines it with her skill and passion of crochet and uses it to inspire people.

"Life force is the culmination of art, mathematics and craft depicting the concept of equality."


In the end of her description she asks


"How are you going to change your life force today?"


Can you combine your passions and skills to do something great? Have you already please share!!!!
