So many creations

I have been making so many things, I am loving it!
I made a purse with scraps of fabric and pieces of a coffee bag. It looks like a nice patchwork quilt.
Lots of collage's, this is my favorite thing to play with, paper and glue, what more do you need in this world, LOL
I filled my wish jar with lots of wishes and it amazes me just how many come true when you least expect it too and that is always a nice surprise.
Lots of sewing, making quilt squares and when I get a bundle I will sew them together to make a quilt for my bed.

Coloring, how I love coloring, colored pencils is my first choice to make my own set of inspirational cards.
When I need a little inspiration and motivation, I pick one of my cards randomly and it always picks me up.

It's like playing all day and I am having a blast, especially with the kids, they are having so much fun too.
They like to create just as much as I do so if you can imagine all the "stuff" that accumulates on the table while we are making things, yowza, and the bits of paper, some falls on the floor and gets stuck to the cat, LOL it doesn't hurt the kitty, but sometimes the cat looks like a walking collage.
Today I feel like making a macaroni necklace, I'll post pics of all the creations I have been making and I hope you too can get inspired to create and play!

Totally Motivated

For the past couple days I have been so inspired to create with things from my backyard.
I made a couple trees to hang my paper ornaments.
I hot glued some branches to a flat rock and they look like little trees, very cute. I love having a place to hang little things I create with paper, ribbons, buttons, whatever I can find at the moment. It is alot of fun to just make something and not know what form it is going to take. I had no idea at first that I would make the trees, and before I knew it, I had a nice place to display other little trinkets.
I glued rocks on top of each other and it turned out to be a fun experiment too. It is really helping me to get ideas of what to start writing about. It's time to work, although I still have some of those random thoughts so I might as well get them out of my head so I can get busy.

1. Should I get rid of television? I am really thinking about this, it might be nice to go without it for awhile.
2. Are the potato pancakes burning? (it smells like it) LOL
3. Hmmmmmmm, tea, what kind of tea today?
4. Wishing for snow.
5. I just love the snow, especially getting snowed in, it's so much fun to be surrounded by a lovely white blanket.
6. What to have for dinner? (whatever it is, I gotta make it, LOL)
7. The day flew by today, not even sure where all that time went.
8. Keeping some of these thoughts to myself, LOL

Off to a great start

Ok, so Jan 1, 2008 I started my "One a Day" creativity journey.
Each day for the month of January, I will create an art project to get my creative juices a flowin.
I these cute little hangy things out of wire and gemstones, (they look like little curly strands of beads) to hang up around the house. I also made a bracelet which I will wear often. I love jewelry made with gemstones and they are also known for their healing and balancing properties, so that's a double bonus for me.
I haven't decided what I will make today, although I am leaning toward a mobile, glue and paper happens to be one of those artsy things I love playing and creating with!

The 10 Things that are in my head on this early morning.

1. I am tired (I didn't sleep much)
2. Why is it sometimes if it makes sense to me I still feel the need to rationalize?
3. Do we all think think and think some more and then wonder why we think so much. (probably not, I am probably over thinking this too, LOL)
4. What really makes men and women so different? (body parts aside, is it conditioned or are our brains really that different, hmmmmm, there I go, thinking again, LOL)
5. Does anyone have the answer to the meaning of life? (if you are that person, email me)
6. I thought it was do good, be good and you'll be fine, sounds good to me!
7. Does my husband really like his job?
8. It has been said that happiness comes from within, I believe this to be true, why you ask, it makes me happy to think that, and where did those happy feelings come from, within, LOL
9. Yes, its true, sometimes I feel like I talk nonsense.
10. Why is it when I say I don't know, not everyone believes me. LOL
