Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree. Martin Luther

Whatever your heart clings to and confides in, that is really your God. Martin Luther

You are not only responsible for what you say, but also for what you do not say.
Martin Luther

I'm grateful for the outspoken, risk taking, courageous, rule changing individuals of this 21st century and all of the envelope pushers of the past.  Thank you for paving the way for myself and future generations to hopefully someday live in a world where humanitarians and peace makers are the majority...not the minority.



I'm a craft addict.  Well, more of a  create  addict. 

Buzzing around my studio and supply closets like a bumblebee.  I am giddy when an idea pops into my head.  "Come on right side brain!  Time to go to work!" (whistling seven dwarfs tune) ...jotting down the jist of it...the tools and ingredients that will be needed...clearing a space on my work table...and losing track of time.  The freedom of letting your imagination run wild.  It's just the best.

Here are a couple of the projects that I have lined up at the moment:

*Retro Vintage T-shirts - all cut and waiting to have a love affair with the stuffing fluff and sewing machine.

*Brightly Colored packs of Femo Clay - finished conditioning and being turned into kitschy jewelry.

*My new Springtime Skinny Scarves - on the knitting needles in shades of pastels.

*Paper Mache Animals - a giraffe, bird, werewolf, bee and monkey at the moment.  My first in the series was Mr. Shivers the Penguin.  I absolutely love turning poor sad discarded dolls into quirky little animals with personalities.

*Beginning stages of my first Zine (pronounced 'zeen') - 21st Century Common Sense Survival: A Humorous Guide.  I'm really excited about this one!  My artistic side has never ever EVER delved into the world of mass production.  I have journals galore, but never seen by the general public.  There's a learning curve and it's a lot of fun writing in such a non formal way with your own handwriting and pictures / doodles.  Muy Liberating!

Below is a pretty well known Zine author who is quite the cartoonist of comics and definately gets her message across.  She's great.

The Single Girls

The scarves, jewelry and anim-dolls will soon be posted on my Etsy site Bright Earth Studio, but in the meantime I'm having a wonderful time dreaming up more and more and more....sigh....so gratifying.


Post Holiday Blinking

It's 2011 already?  Twenty-Ten was a sneaky little thing.  It was a year of changes, contemplation, inspiration and creativity.  And it flew by like an overhead Boeing!

Some things I accomplished in the last twelve months:

*brainstormed a wonderful business name that fits me like a glove
*strategically remodeled my third floor studio & organized supplies
*dabbled in lotsa lotsa artistic mediums to find my niche
*decided I don't have or want a niche
*opened an Etsy shop (and Blog of course!)
*learned photography tips to make my products look their best
*reconnected with lotsa friends thanks to good ole Facebook
*spent a lot of alone time...just me and my psych
*finally embraced the fact that I'm artistically strange and unconventional

Now, honestly there are days I can't focus and might have 8 projects going on at once...all layed out...supplies, tools, clay, papers, jewelry...and sometimes the line between said projects starts to blur a bit.  I'll probably spend the rest of my days in a tug o war with my creativity brain and scatterbrained brain.  At the moment they're holding hands and smiling.  Tommorrow could be a studio door shut tight while pulling my colorful knitting basket to my feet.  For a day of scarves, cowls and hats.  There are ONLY 4 skeins on needles at the moment.

Speaking of yummy yarn...what's next on the List to master?  Crochet animals and toys of course.  Cuteness overload in my book.
