A little art each day.....

I seem to be having a slow start to heading back into the studio this fall! I keep thinking I will get an entire week to create and start filling up my Ebay and Etsy store ( and finally get the website off the ground) but life has other plans. Sometimes we need to lay our agenda aside and just let what is naturally pressing on our hearts take precedence. It might be a task you've been procrastinating on that just won't be ignored another day, a long overdue letter that needs writing, a book you've been meaning to read, the walks you keep promising your family you will take, getting together with friends that you have missed, helping a loved one who is having a difficult time or taking the time to nurture yourself spiritually. I find that if I try and force creating for creating sakes when other matters need my attention, the piece seems forced and doesn't feel authentically me. So I focused on what needed me today first and then found just a little moment in time this evening when creating was what it was suppose to me...a naturally flowing extention of my heart! This art card collage dangle is on Ebay !

Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog! I love your post today. Some days, the creativity just doesn't happen for me, but it usually doesn't take too long before my studio is calling me home!
hugs,

I always have trouble being creative with new ideas for holiday stock when it's 80 degrees outside :) Rather be reading great novels in the warm afternoon sunlight or having dinner with the family out on the new patio :)
