|Home is my Canvas|
My very first creative endeavour was choosing the paint for my bedroom. I was about 12 years old and it turned out well! I've been hooked on decorating creatively ever since and it has spread to the landscape around my house. Discovering quilting was the doorway to landscape quilts, fibre art and mixed media. Who would have guessed??? I want to try it all! But being a technique junky doesn't make for many finished projects. I need a focus.
Voila! my home
Home inspires me. If I limit my creating to projects for my home and from my home as in gifts for family and friends; I can push those that don't immediately have a 'home' further down on my bucket list. Then I'll likely find my creativity has a better focus and I can develop my style more effectively. I am certainly not a practical individual but it seems I need some kind of reason to do things. Or at least have some kind of understanding as to the why. There will always likely be 'just because' times but I will I use my creativity more wisely? profitably?
Home is where the heart of creativity resides.
