I love paper!

Went to pick up some more wire and came home with some new paper. So this morning I’ve been making petals and then flowers. Preparations are in full swing for Pickin’ Boise: antique show & artisan market, May 14 & 15. Click Here for information on it.


So here’s a look at how things are right now. There always seems to be bits & pieces on my work table. This environment keeps the creative juices flowing. My office/studio is one of the first places I go in the morning after breakfast. I work for a little while during the get ready for school time. Once the boys are off to school and it’s just me and the dogs, I make a cup of tea, turn up the music and get down to business.

Seeing other artist’s studios is fascinating to me. It’s gives all of us a glimpse into how they work, what they have close at hand, and what type of cool inspiration they have around them. I’m thinking that a post showing my office/studio should be on the list in the not too distant future. Where do you work on your creative projects? I’d love to see your creative space, so share in the comments if you dare.

That’s it for now. When I get these flowers done and more, I’ll post some pictures. For now, go out and create a great day!



Is it Thursday already?

Whoa! Where has the last two weeks gone? I finally made the decision to jump into an artisan market the middle of May and things haven’t slowed down since. As a matter of fact things are going warp speed. Don’t laugh, the rush of adrenaline is real. It feels good so have an outside person be excited about your art. However you channel your creativity, having that creativity acknowledged feels great.

This is where the rubber meets the road, so to speak. To that end, I am making flowers like crazy these days and adding some embellishments that are new. The result is another fun floral that people are responding favorably to. My studio/office is filling with origami flowers, floral wire, paper scraps litter the floor and my work table is covered with stuff.

By the way, if you’re local and want to come check out an awesome antique show & artisan market, May 14 & 15 at Expo Idaho. Click here Pickin’ Boise for more info. Stop by and say Hi if you are there. Please share if you don’t mind.

Now go out and create a great day!
