What do you see?
An ordinary walnut shell, yes?
It's a creative portal for me to jump into... a tiny treasure to transform into something special.
Like, a miniature robin's egg nest:
I know, I'm a little nuts... excitedly turning nutshells into nests... but that's my confession today:
...My brain never stops searching for creative outlets.
In fact, my brain just doesn't shut up actually!
You know how you ask a guy "what are you thinking about?" and they say "nothing"... and it's true. Well, I don't have a 'nothing' setting.
Whenever there's a lull in the day (where I'm washing dishes, or feeding the baby.. or up in the night) my brain just defaults to dreaming up new creations.
My head could be a waste basket full of crumpled balls of paper for all the ideas I propose and then toss out of my mind.
I think that's why I'm always trying new projects, and making a wide variety of creations... there's just so many things I want to bring to life. I guess you could say my works are 'limited edition', because I'll likely run off and create something different in another moment.
That's why this blog is a good fix for my daily shakes... it lets me create something new every time!
Does every creative person share this mental setting I wonder?
So, what do you see?
... or a gal just eager to see the extra in the ordinary...
