Hello and welcome! Be warned I'm feeling philosophical today.
In my crafty world I am far more likely to talk to Lynn in Texas most days than I am to my next door neighbour. In fact new people have been there for 2 months now and we haven't managed to introduce ourselves. Which is terrible I know!
I look at all the marvellous retreats and events being advertised and my heart does a pitter patter until it is stilled by reality. Crafting and creating takes time. Running a business and all the behind the scenes work that must be done takes an enormous amount of time and energy. My magic fairy has skipped the country I'm sure! ( heard her grumbling about the wages as she went)
Some days it feels really lonely. It's those days when I procrastinate and usually zoom about the web - dropping in on favourite blogs...having a laugh or a cry at Facebook posts. It's on those lonely days that I try to make my comments particulalry meaningful and heartfelt on blog posts....I sure know how it feels when you put your heart into your make. You then craft together your blog post and then there are the expectant hours when you wonder who will get you.
Here at Time To Create I have regular classes and events. In fact one of them is happening tomorrow.
The lovely ladies will come tumbling in about 9:15am and I will be delighted to see them.
They won't know that I will be up till quite late tonight as the "to do " list this week has been un-jumpable.
We're exploring the concept of resist in our art tomorrow. Of course I kept thinking of more and more ways to explore this Focus Class Topic. Brillaint success and miserable failure are hand in hand on my workbench.
It will be their excitement, camaraderie and desire to learn and do that will nurture me.
The feedback they give will keep that little flame of creative happiness burning brightly.
I'm sometimes a fragile creature. So no matter where you are, know that when our creative paths cross our communication is what sustains, nurtures and VERY frequently has me unable to sleep at night as "Whatif" is inspired by what you share and then wants to play.
Until next time
