I came across this quote that was very encouraging, and had to share...
Act as if what you do
makes a difference.
The simplicity of knowing,
that what we are doing as creatives really does matter...
adds a cherry on top of the sundae for me!
(As do the words I chose for my little birdie painting plate-
a pure expression of how I feel when I am "creating".
If you've been popping in now and then,
you may have noticed that there are a group of creatives
that have been linking on a regular basis to studiojru.
Jennifer has been hosting this lovely space
where creative gifts are being shared.
I am happy to mention that this week's link-up will be at the (in)courage site.
A wonderful place of inspiration, community, creativity, and fabulous product.
Grab a coffee, a tea, and take a look through-there's so much to see.
Here's what I had been up to...
launching... new moMMy pins
(personalized pins with your favorite picture)
launching... new biRdie pins
...prepped for a MOPS boutique and happily sold many inspirational plates...
... more prepping
... and planning
... and completing.
There are a few smaller shows on the horizon, but I am so happy about the opportunity
to be part of a larger show...
This event will take place on May 15th in Long Beach.
Want to know a secret....
With this venue, I'll have to prepare a booth space.
A full 10 x 10 space of creativity to sell creativity- yikes!
(Something, I've always been a little freaked out about).
I am sharing the space, with a friend that I met at a prior venue.
Between the both of us, I think we will be able to pull
something together and make a nice showing.
Her work is quite lovely-
sweet plush animals out of reclaimed materials- so well made and stylized.
I am on a path right now, to continue integrating
more and more of my own paintings into the plates...
and perhaps have a few mixed media pieces to bring.
For anyone in Los Angeles- check out the Patchwork website-
perhaps we'll see you there... at a booth or stolling the show?
If anyone has any thoughts on a booth space they'd like to share-
feel free to leave some seeds in the comment area.
Any creative ideas are welcome!
Time to check out the rest of the creativity from Sneak Peek Friday.
Thanks for stopping by, and know that
"Y O U make a difference"!
