Playing with Possibilities!

Playing with possibilities, is my favourite way of working, but is it the only way? I don’t care, because I think that it’s fun! The secret to creativity, is a combination of both play, and hard work. It’s no secret that I like to play, and I’m not afraid of hard work! So, here’s how I’ve been playing with possibilities this week. My Free Form Peyote “Dancing” piece, is thoughtful, absorbing, addicting, flexible, never ending, feels good in my hands, but also carries a message. It’s my visual journal of our life, during this pandemic. It illustrates many of the …

September 2020 Bead Mat Update: Recharging my creativity!

My September 2020 Bead Mat Update, signals a recharge in creativity for me. But not only that, I picked up my needle again, and started working on a couple of stalled projects. Sigh! You’ve seen both of these free-form projects in earlier blog posts, but only one is finished. My quartz crystal’s purpose is to sit pretty, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not worthwhile, does it? It kept my hands busy, for many hours of watching summer re-runs, and sappy Hallmark movies! There’s only so much I can take!! My free-form pandemic project, has been on the shelf for …

Neither Here nor There!

Neither here nor there is another funny title for a blog post. That’s because I’m in one of those moods, where I really don’t have all that much to say. Okay, I always have stuff to say, but I guess the spirit just hasn’t moved me yet. So, let’s just get going! My weekend was a working one, with me writing to a deadline. I met it, so all is good! But what that means, is that my creativity had to take a back seat. Of course, that doesn’t mean that I didn’t do anything, just not as much as …

What’s she up to now?

What’s she up to now, you say? Nonsense of course, but not all beading related. I’m writing a couple of articles, but it’s consuming a lot of my energy. My deadline is looming, so I really do need to get the lead out! My beading adventures continue, with my freeform peyote, quartz piece. I’m still working on it, but hope to have it finished soon. I made another mask chain! A butterfly, a heart, and 6/0 seed beads. Simple stringing, but geared toward something a little girl would like. I converted my Talisman pendant, to a mask holder, but only …

August 2020 Bead Mat Update: Welcome to my world!

It’s time for my August 2020 bead mat update! But what’s all that about my world? I’m a crazy, intuitive, right brained (but left when I need to) artist! But I wasn’t always comfortable with the term. I only started calling myself that, when other artists told me that my work had a unique voice, then they began to call me by that moniker. But really, I’m just a mixed-up media girl, addicted to techniques, then creating whatever my muse tells me to make! Do you believe that it’s almost the end of August? Where did the summer go? It’s …
