I've finally come to the realization that if I'm not creating something, or at least thinking about creating something, I'm not happy. It's in my blood. It's what makes me feel alive. The end result rarely matters. Well, OK, it matters a little. But it's that spark of inspiration, the process of giving life to an idea and then the act of putting hands on fabric~dirt~junk~paper and transforming it into something completely different and ME that really brings me joy.
If you've seen the movie "PS, I Love You" then you can relate to the scene where she is trying to explain what being an artist means. It means giving life to an idea and having IT, whatever it is, live outside your body. It's a piece of you. Even if "it" is just socks.
This blog will be random. I don't think I have a "style". At least not one that there's a name for. :) And I believe in sharing inspiration and giving credit where credit is due. You'll see lots and lots of links to other blogs and websites that have inspired me, and hopefully they will inspire you, too. Half the fun of creating is feeding the soul with images and ideas...pure eye candy.
