No Greater Bliss


My head has been spinning with to-do's.
and thats ok.
I'm happy and excited with so many things going on behind the scenes...

but every once in a while

I just want to create...
With
No intention.
No requirements.
No guidelines.
&
No deadlines.

Just me and my floating idea.


that comes to life through the tips of my fingers

 

while I sweetly hum to myself


my "happy in the moment" little tune.


I am thankful for these moments.
for there is no greater bliss.


Just leave me a comment and I will pick a winner for one of my new soldered bobbin inspired pendants on May 7th.



As always,
thank you so much for stopping by

I know what you mean, Cat! It's fun when we can just play around and let our imaginations soar!

Love the bird pendant. Is the bird cast resin that you've made to look like metal or is it actually metal?

Hugs, Kathy

Alice said...

Me too, me too. But sometimes the days are filled with 'must do' lists, and the creating gets shoved to the back burner.

I just love all the pieces you show here. The fabric bird pendant is gorgeous! Is that a plaster bird--or wood? Either way, I love it! And your soldered bobbin-inspired pendants are just darling! I would be thrilled to win!

That is the finest way to create without the strictures. Then you can get downright meditative. It looks like you had a sweet time of it.

I think the best art comes with no special planning, just whatever the heart wants and creates.
