I felt you and just knew it!!!

I felt it and I just knew it was not the same,
I knew if I had left with it
Soon you'll be calling out my name.
So I let my hands and our connection do the talking
And yes eventually with you in my hand we were both walking.

It's amazing how we can identify our tools by just a simple touch. I was teaching a class recently and I accidentally put my crimping pliers in the draw with the tools at work. Oh boy in a sea of blue crimping pliers they all looked the same. All I had to do was hold a few of them in my hands and before long I found mine. So yeah I let my hands and our connection do the talking ...

Creative Block

As I sit here and type away I'm thinking of the fact that what I'm about to 'key' is not form a book but from my experience. I've been told that 'experience is the greatest teacher' and with that in mind I'm typing away.

At times there are so many ideas in my head about things I want to create and that burst of creativity sometimes results in nothing. A situation where there is no satisfying end result. At times is seems like there is what I'll coin ' creative constipation', I suppose it can be equated to writers' block. When that occurs there is that need for a break - a time to step outside and let nature doing the talking. Or perhaps a trip to a mall may stimulate my creativity.

If you are familiar with my work you'll know that my pieces are very abstract in nature - very freeform. Some people cannot think outside the box or outside the anus. Oh boy first constipation, then anus jeez what is this Sunshine? Well I just let myself go in my work, I go with the flow of my mood. When the moment comes when I cannot get the job done  I just leave it alone because there is no sense in forcing the point.

So here I am on a different canvas, putting my creativity to work. So as for tonight goes,instead of rushing into my stash I'll take a rest.

Wire she goes!!!

Yeah wire is still calling out to me and I'm enjoying this new adventure in my creatrive journey. Where this will take me next I'm not sure but I'm excited.

I was bead weaving for approximately four years and now I want to turn a new leaf. I still have some tiny beads in my stash and those I may use to create one enormous piece ( yeah right) or they may just get used up in my bead embroidery pieces.

So for now wire she goes!!!!

Coiling Gizmo Classes

I got an idea a few weeks ago about a series of classes using the Coiling Gizmo. October 3rd. was my second class and like the first I really enjoyed teaching and the pieces made by my students were absolutely breathtaking. Three pieces and they reminded me of the seasons : spring, fall and winter. Enjoy!!!

Sarah's Bracelet - reminded me of the spring!!!

Norma's piece ( to be completed) reminded me of the fall!!!

Sarah's Bracelet reminded me of the winter!!!
