Pulling it all together

Over the years I’ve saved several sayings that I have liked from various places and Facebook shares.  They spike a thought and possibly creativity within me. I’ve been busy in my office trying to make sense of all the wonderful supplies I have! I am grateful for all that I have but now. I am working on organizing.  I need to be in somewhat of order before I can create.

I went out and got myself some art supplies and jewelry supplies so I can enjoy both my creative talents.  It is a good sign that I am feeling a pull to create. It has been a while and to my followers, I apologize. I’ve been frozen in place from grief. Couldn’t get off the couch.

I did finally get myself into the pool in our community and get my body moving… That felt so good and now want to get my mind working  It goes in and out grief hits you at different times. I stay frozen (that is what I call it) less and less. This is good.

Tomorrow which is Memorial Day, I am celebrating my son’s 31 Birthday.  First birthday since he went to heaven.  I’m working on pulling myself together here so I don’t focus on sadness.  I’m getting excited to dive into my jewelry beads and let them sing to me and see what I can come up with.  I was on my design table last week and drew a blank.  I know something is in there.  I’m taking action and responsibility.  I know I’ll have some sad days. Each time I get back to myself faster and faster.

Hugs from me.

Doing what you love to do!

Years ago, I majored in art and I loved it.  I enjoy my jewelry designing. However, I find that that want to do art.   I’ve had dreams of me doing artwork. I felt that I wasn’t able to bring it to fruition. Have no clue of what medium to work with or what.  Need to draw!

I spent my weekend on Pinterest to see if there is anything that jumps off the page at me.  what I loved was working with pen and ink.  I see I love using color. That sings to me.  I used to do calligraphy and love all the different ways to work with letters. Plus I love all the swirls! So I ordered my supplies and I’ve started practicing.  A lot of the pictures I’ve posted on here were from color by number.  I see that I will go in reverse. I feel that is a great tool for learning sometimes. I look at a finished product and then back through the process.  I will practice the pictures. I’ll notice how they use the coloring. The shading and the hues. I will do this! 

When I found that image of quill pen and ink. I felt that it had to do something with my writing too. We will see what shows up.
