Begin


There are times for each of us when we simply have to begin again! We’ve all been there and there’s a very good chance we’ll each be there again. And although the circumstances vary widely, we know that the solution is always the same: Begin. -Paul Boynton


This reminds me of the words that started me on my creative journey...the first line in the Mary Oliver poem "The Journey" ...."One day you finally knew what you had to do and began"...I see these words everyday as I have them on my wall in my art room...they remind me of the first step,and every step there after.


One of the hardest things to do,is to begin(at least it was for me) , but soon after that first step, I realized that, ...sure it might take me a couple of steps to get into a rhythm,but once I do,there's no stopping me. 


and then every mountain top,no matter how high, is within reach.


Sure...it might take you a couple of steps to get into a rhythm,but once you do....there's no stopping you.

WIP

It seems as though lately everything has been a "Work in Progress". My head has been in the clouds and my focus had decided to go for a walk...a very long walk..to a different state...Heehee. I think we all go through dry spells...even though I wouldn't necessarily call it a dry spell,as my noggin is constantly creating,but more of a lack of focus.Thankfully,the 20+ projects I had sitting around the art room finally managed to tug at me long enough and I managed to squeak out some new pieces. Introducing my Love Tokens and you can check out my new post on Paper Whimsy here.

But like with so many other things in life,I finished the first pieces,and then I became inspired to finish the next and so on.Here are some metalwork pendants I finished up using a Jewelers Saw. I'm finally getting the hang of it and enjoying the process.


These pieces can all be found in my Jewelry Shop and for my blog friends only,here's a Free Shipping coupon for my Jewelry Shop (Domestic only),just use the code BLOGFRIENDS!

So if your having one of those days...you know,..."the getting absolutely nothing crossed off your list kind of a day",or perhaps a "not feeling inspired kind of a day", or maybe even a "I just wanna soak my feet in the pool and read a book kinda day"....just remember,it's all good,often times we need to step away in order to become inspired and thankfully... 

Happy Monday friends.xox
