…Creating on the Hill…

Life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them

…Creating a time to Breathe..


Index Card Journal 3

…one of the MOST IMPORTANT things i need to remind myself of … anytime I sit down to  create, whether it is in my art journal or a new project….is  I need to take the time to breathe and that I  ENJOY the process…

..and that means not comparing my art to someone else.. I love social media, pinterest, instagram like everybody but it can sometimes make me  compare myself to other artists who I have decided are much more talented….that then makes me start to doubt..that then stops me creating…then I’m not breathing…does that make sense?

SOOOOOOOO….in order for me to keep breathing I need to keep creating, i have had a few days off work and I have really enjoyed

  • creating in my latest journal (more about that project this week…)
  • designing new projects for ‘Springtime @ The Crafts House
  • painting orders (normally I procrastinate about this but with my new ‘create-mosphere’….more about that too!)
  • watching our new ‘creative space’ be built (David is creating this  for us both)
  • templates for chunky frame workshop
  • collaborating with David on a mixed media project for a gift

The Crafts House is a small studio on top of a "hill"..a place to create..a place to breathe..a time just for you.. I'm the luckiest person to spend my days creating the art that i love..meeting like minded creative friends..sharing time in the palette of life..
