Something about this time of year brings out more creativity in me than perhaps any other time. It’s as though I have been growing ideas in the summer and now the “harvest” begins. Do any of you experience anything like this? It’s not that I am producing bunches and bushels of anything, just that those projects come together in my mind…and I put them together.
It probably helps that Saturday I worked on cleaning up my creative space, getting rid of excess scraps and items that I was just sure I would use someday. About 3 or 4 garbage bags of someday got recycled. Amazing how freeing that is.
There remains what I love to put together; bits of old tatting, fabric scraps, scrap book papers, buttons, card stock. I decided to snap a photo of that wonderful mess so that I could share it with you here.
Taking what gets thrown together in a heap, sorting and mixing and layering and blending and gluing and stitching….to create what holds meaning and a bit of my story. Getting lost in the process and loving every moment of it.
I’d love to hear your thoughts. How does the creative thing (no matter what art medium you favor) happen for you?
