I love to visit pinterest and all of my favorite blogs for inspiration, but recently I decided to
check out my own pics for a jolt of inspiration
(like a walk down memory lane)
and I think it's time to plug in the soldering iron again...
could my kids recent moves be what draws me to this one?
and then I came across this bag, and now I want to plug in my sewing machine...
I have more sweaters...
and more skirts for more pillows...
but I also have a few more of these vintage trophy ribbons in my stash...
is this starting to sound like one of Deb's squirrel alerts?
and then Santa brought me a dremel for Christmas...
(we are now eating with plastic silverware!)
At the moment, I am making a few special orders with special phrases
of this Valentine heart...
Is it a bad thing to want to create with so many different mediums?
I didn't even bring up the collage work and assemblage that I want to do...
At times I question my direction as an artist and small business owner.
Am I really doing myself any favors by going in so many different directions?
When I have tried to concentrate on only one or two things,
I find myself feeling antsy,
or feeling maybe a bit more squirrely than antsy actually.
There is that one thing that always comes into play when I make something,
making something new from something old, creating something it was never intended to be.
Did you know that when you type in repurposed it comes up as misspelled?
It's not recognized as a word except with those of us
who can't help but look at something
what if I did this to that, and then put this here, and cut this off...
you get the picture, right?
I knew that you did :)
you get me... thank you for that!
so be it upcycled, repurposed, recycled, or whatever the spell check will accept,
I will surely be doing more of it starting next week!
Gotta get my head back in the game so to speak.
til next time,

Thanks for the parties girls!
