A creative week at last!



I'm finally out of the slump and working again,I feel inspired and ready to rip at last.
I have met some great artists online and have been greatly encouraged to keep going,its been a rough few weeks to say the least but things are looking up in the creative way.

I have sorted out the big studio and am ready to roll with a more productive year ahead,I parted with my beloved kick wheel this week which gives me more room to work,it was hard to let it go but I did and am focusing on more glass work,enameling and smaller clay work.

I divided my studio into three spaces,one for the jewelry work with glass,clay and metal,one space for sewing, doll making and other crafty work and the other for painting,by doing this I hope to be more organized and work more efficiently.

I also hope to start teaching this year and finally get published,but most of all I just want to create and work steadily all year through and be inspired by creative people.

I was given a new soldering kit for Christmas ,I just need some copper foil and I'm away,the kit has a cool little iron in it for wax work so I am pretty excited about that.

Also I received a new video camera so Ill be able to do the youtube thing,cant wait to do that, I just have to figure out the editing soft ware,I will be trying to get my web site up and running and start a blog of tutorials as well,so I have big plans for the year ahead,lets hope I can get it all done.

Tips of the day...join flickr,meet new artists and s=check out their studios,talk to them and be inspired and encouraged!

Every artist dips his brush in his own soul,
and paints his own nature into his pictures.
