Just a repressed writer, wanting to dispense some wisdom?? Ideas for creating bags, beads, art bears, and art dolls, along with some "common sense" views of life in Post-Modern America.
"Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business, and to work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody."
September already! The song says "it's a long, long time from May to September" and the days grow short when it reaches September......We're in creative flux here, trying to decide the next NEW thing we're going to put together. I feel that I need to keep moving onward (not forward), trying to extend myself creatively. Some items seem to have waned in customers' desires....like OOAK handbags. The pincushions are still strong, but it's time to think of some other path to pursue. I did do a BRA creation for the Thousand Islands Arts Center in Clayton, NY. This is their second "Bra-VO" creation project for the benefit of breast cancer and of course, the arts center. I donated my bra creation to them for whatever purpose it is intended. The title of this piece is:"Birds of a Feather Flock Together". Feathered trims, blue sky vintage leaves for the sky, and mushroom birds complete the piece. First time I ever succumbed to doing a bra as an art form.
I have several creative pieces currently in the "September" window of the Artisans Guild in Oneonta, NY. I do so love Fall....
