A new roll of artist tape. A new tube of oil paint. A brand new magazine, especially if it is High Fructose. Cutting into a brand new piece of fabric… or finally gathering up the courage to cut into a rare or treasured antique textile. A perfectly ripe avocado. A perfectly fitted lining in a handmade hat. Rediscovering the music of your youth (I love you Kathleen Hanna!). Hot chai tea. Multi-layer screenprinting for the first time in years.
