This is a new friend of mine. She came over this morning to pick out some wool with her mom. Rachel is an adorable little girl with a gift to create. I gave her a bag and let her choose some of her favorite pieces out of one of my scrap bins. They have plans of creating bracelets and wool cuffs... maybe some stuffed animals or scarves. They will embellish them with embroidery. The sky is the limit! She told me about the cute baby quilts her mom had made for gifts. Its so exciting to watch people who have bin bitten by the creative bug. It brings me such joy. Children are delightful to watch as they create. I showed her how to make a little dimensional flower and before they left she had the little rolled flower down pat. This is why we are remodeling the studio, so we can have lots of space to create and learn new things from each other.

I love this definition of creating:
  • 1. to cause to come into being, as something unique that would not naturally evolve or that is not made by ordinary processes
  • 2.from one's thought or imagination, as a work of art or an invention..

Each of us are unique and have our own way of seeing the world and expressing ourselves. It makes the world a wonderful place to be. These quotes are nice to ponder. Its a gift to have time to ponder.

"As the season of believing seems to wind down let me gently remind you that many dreams still wait in the wings. Many authentic sparks must be fanned before passion performs her perfect work in you. Throw another log on the fire."
- Sarah Ban Breathnach

“Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.”
- Mary Lou Cook

“There is no doubt that creativity is the most important human resource of all. Without creativity, there would be no progress, and we would be forever repeating the same patterns.”
- Edward de Bono

“Everyone who’s ever taken a shower has had an idea. It’s the person who gets out of the shower, dries off and does something about it who makes a difference.”
- Nolan Bushnell
It is good to feed our souls daily.
