Creativity burst

Why we play as children
is not because it is our work or
because it is how we learn, though both statements are true;
we play because we are wired for joy,
it is imperative as human beings.
~ John Thorn

I’ve got a lovely outing to report, but yesterday inspiration struck, so here’s what took priority while flowers were frosting on the window.

I made an angel pin for a precious young girl.

Earlier I created some fun girly pendants for another young girl. Rainbow commissions are such fun.

I heart little girls

One of these pieces is a gift, but the rest will be on Etsy soon.

It’s always fun to see where the wire takes you. I had a mission with some of these shapes, but the wire is just as stubborn as I am.

Thinking of meaningful words and quotes is a way of making a talisman of each of these pieces.

Let the collaging begin!

Ready for Valentine’s Day, anyone?

I’d say my favorite creature turned out alright for a first wire attempt.

Spring came through in the midst of snow flurries.

It’s only layer 1, more to be added over the weekend.

I also tried a photo shoot with my Painted Ladies pets (a blog post for another time), but that failed.

Have a lovely weekend.

Don’t think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity.
It’s self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy.
You can’t try to do things. You simply must do things.
~ Ray Bradbury
