I run on solar batteries. When it gets too dark and depressing I flee to my studio, where the full spectrum daylight spotlight bulbs know my name and welcome me.
And all those hoarded supplies are available if only I can find them!
Today I would like to share a portion of my sudio.
I love words. I love them, I love reading them, I love hearing them well spoken, I love their meanings and the look of script. It's a long time love affair I've had with words. Me and words, we're like that (holding up two fingers close together) There are words all over the studio.
The pin cushion mouse says Embrace Imperfections
A subtle reminder not to even fret over choices.
This tiny little embellishment hanging off a quilt I made last year reminds me to take Risks.
When they went on sale, I couldn't resist.
There are some more months I'll end up sharing with you too as they make me laugh!
Laughter is good in a studio, right?
We should enjoy what me are doing and what we make. It's called work, and there are times when it's frustrating.
I must say, wrestling to put together the heavy bed quilt sections right now is physical work.
For me, I am more creative when I'm feeling something. Right now I need to feel happiness.
This one speaks to my core, and without over-sharing here, my childhood wasn't idyllic. I have spent a lifetime learning about self worth and the role self esteem plays in accomplishment.
One of my basic tenets of creativity is that we must share ourselves in our work.
We are the only ones who can.
