You are in control: of your life, your opportunities, your ability to enact change in this world.
Use your creativity, your outside-of-the-box point of view to make something happen today. Stop wishing for change, stop envisioning a better world, stop hoping for a shift of power.
Seize control. Take your ideas to the street and demand to be heard.
If you are a consumer, use consumption to take control. If are a creator, use innovation to overpower the status quo.
We all as Artists get into these frumps. Everyday life can do that to
us. It is when we come across a post, a quote or someone who says something like the above that instantly gives me this recharge! I wanted to pass it along. Hopefully it inspires you as well.
I have not blogged in a while so this is what has been going on with me.....
Yesterday I spent the day with an artist friend of mine, Kat Allison. We dyed fabrics like muslin and china silk. She also taught me a little bit about screen printing and
mixing my own dyes. It is very fun to do. My hands have red dye on them still.........gives me a very arty look :)
I was fumbling around in my studio the other day and put together a piece with scraps. It is my favorite piece at the moment, my circle eternity necklace.
This necklace I wore at the local Etsy party we had for Etsy's birthday. This is going to be part of a flower line I am creating. I should be posting this necklace on Etsy soon......I have someone who may be interested...yeah! We will see.....
I am continuing with my silver jewelry class. I am working on some copper pieces. I figure I spend this year learning and working on inventory so I will be better equipped for shows next summer.....Besides this I am spending my weekends walking around farmer markets and laying on the beach....enjoy the simple things in life and absorbing all the earth has to offer!
The other week was my birthday. My husband knows how much I love Marilyn so they got together and order me this cake!!
It took me a day or so to cut into it, but they took a picture of it for me and had it framed.
