So I was pondering today about happiness. The thought occurred to me recently, that lately I have not been listening to the music I really enjoy as much as I used to. Turning up the tunes always give my spirits a lift - especially those that have a good dance beat.
Dancing in PJ's and savouring chocolate truffles - now who can beat that!
I was thinking about what makes me happy? Well, any time I get to create, I feel like ...
...well, like the centre of a chocolaty truffle.
(of course you knew that was coming, lol)
Anywho... I thought I would share with you some of my vast interests when it comes to the creative fields.
My weakness is that I see something new, I want to try it.
I think having only one creative outlet would just drive me bonkers.
Some would beg to differ I am already there...
So here goes, a sampling of some of my creativity over the past years...
(in no particular order )
|Diaper cakes - have made lots of these for baby showers. So much fun to find things to put on the cake!|
I think I'd love to try a motorcycle one next.
|I love drawing in pencil - here's one of my favourite sketches|
- based on the figurine my husband gave me for a wedding present :)
|OK, a bit bizarre - this actually goes back to highschool and was a lithography project. (printmaking)|
.. I'll save this story for another blog
|A pencil drawing done when I was in art school. |
We had to first sketch and then create a distorted portrait. I think she looks like a pixie.
|Another pencil project from art school|
- every other strip is my drawn portion and the other strips are the actual photograph.
I have no clue who they are....
|This is a watercolour piece - had to copy another artist, in order to learn their style|
- so I used one of my absolute fav Marjolein Bastin
|Easter Eggs - no idea what medium I used|
|Pottery.. bizarre vase.. I love abstract things though :)|
|Took a glass class and made some tiles as well as glass blowing paperweights|
|Wedding decorations for a friend |
-pew bows, at the back are two pew hangers,
and the rest went on the tables for the reception
|wooden bird of paradise|
I have also made wooden frames...
|wreath with dried flowers - made quite a few wreaths over the years|
|Even tried my hand at model building - a kit from hubby, a model enthusiat|
|Do you remember rug hooking??? yep did that too |
- this is a forest, in case you didn't see it for the trees...
|LOVE paper - too much so... ehem...|

|OK, I can get very creative sometimes|

|A bluebid of happiness... LOVE beads.. esp Mill Hill kits....|

Never a dull moment... oh .. now how could I almost forget!
