I have been creating cards and scrapbooks as well as scrapbook pages for quite some time. Jewelry has also been among my creative crafts, I can’t help myself I love to make things. I love taking something through each stage of development and see what the final outcome will be. There have been times I have stepped back to look at the final outcome of my creations and thought what was I thinking?
I am sure we all had creations that well, lets just say remain somewhere in the back of a closet or on a shelf somewhere not meant to be seen. I don’t consider those as failures, but another process of learning, even if the lesson is learning what not to do.
One thing that I really love is waiting for my supplies to come. When I know something is coming I check the mail box constantly, if I see the mail truck I can barely wait for him to finally get to my house. If I am out, when I do get home I am looking on the steps as I am pulling into the driveway to see if a package has arrived.
It doesn’t matter if it is paper that was ordered or jewelry supplies, I can’t wait to rip the package open and see it, I don’t care if it is something that I have ordered before. I just can’t wait to see what is inside the package, even though I am the one that placed the order you would think that this was a surprise gift that I didn’t know I was getting.
Nothing gives me more joy then when my supplies arrive except after I have made something and someone just loves it. That is what makes my soul smile…
If I am inspired to create something and it catches your eye, it is at this moment in time our creative souls touch.
