March Spinning Box from thespinningbox.com

March 2018 Spinning Box “Artist Choice”

Come along as I explore my March Spinning Box from spinningbox.com. I love the excitement of my box arriving in the mail. Often I will sit it up and look at it imagining all the colors and fiber combinations that are waiting for me just under that tape!

Mary Egbert has done a great job over the years to bring together some of the best fiber artists from around the world to offer their unique fiber to the Spinning Box. Each box is an adventure and I’ve learned to spin many new fibers that I would not have tried except that they came to me in my box and packaged in a way that I was not intimidated by them. I spun my first hemp from the spinning box! The artist had blended it with wool so I wasn’t stressed….I know how to spin wool! Sometimes the color combinations light a fire under me! It makes me want to jump up and spin.

If you’ve never gotten a box from thespinningbox.com – click the link below and get yours next month!!!  FIESTA:

Mermaids and Mystical Creatures

I’ve been filming the opening of my spinning box from spinningbox.com for a while now and I’ve had multiple challenges over the years. First one was what do you use? Tried my computer and my camera…..okay results. Then bought a nice little video recorder and that created a very nice video but the lighting was off…..so I tried various ways to create adequate lighting….and final decided that outside in natural light was the best. That decision led to another problem!

I live next to a trucking company and on a busy highway. On to sound. I tried two different microphones but they only intermittently worked and as anyone who has seen any of the latest videos knows…..I’ve not had sound. Since you can only have ONE box opening there has been no going back for a redo so I kept on looking for a solution. This video I used an “interview” microphone. I have it hung in front of me (hoping to drown out the lawnmowers that seem to be out whenever I want to film).

Let me know how it sound!
