“If God dwells inside us like some people say, I sure hope He likes enchiladas, because that’s what He’s getting” ~ Jack Handy
What goes up..must come down, so they say. First craft show: success, fireworks and unicorns. Second craft show: crickets…and, a lot of old ladies. But, there’s another saying, too: If at first you don’t succeed, try again. So, perhaps that’s what I’ll do. Because, after all, there’s that third saying: “Third time’s a charm”.
Since the last Market Day, I’ve been busy working on new creations! The more I play, the more ideas I come up with…I’m really enjoying my newfound hobby!
Here are a few shots of some recent pieces I’ve made….more to come! Stay tuned!
First craft show is offically behind me. Had a lot of fun on Saturday and learned a few things that will benefit me for the next go around. I even made some sales! I think this could be the beginning of a new hobby. Looking forward to attending another Market Day very soon!
I’m in the midst of preparation for the craft show (this Saturday). Don’t believe me? You should take a look at the right side of our kitchen/eat-in section of our home. On second thought, please just look away. Hey, it’s not fun unless it’s messy! Right?
I’ve always enjoyed creating things. Making something, for me, equals instant good mood and peace. Just recently, I discovered a new hobby that is quickly becoming a bit of an obsession! So much so that I’ve decided to give it it’s own blog…it was beginning to get too cozy at the home of my other blog and, well, that’s a place reserved just for our little crumb snatchers’ photos and such.
I recently found a quote.
“The truly creative mind in any field is no more than this: A human creature born abnormally, inhumanely sensitive. To them… a touch is a blow, a sound is a noise, a misfortune is a tragedy, a joy is an ecstasy, a friend is a lover, a lover is a god, and failure is death. Add to this cruelly delicate organism the overpowering necessity to create, create, create — so that without the creating of music or poetry or books or buildings or something of meaning, their very breath is cut off… They must create, must pour out creation. By some strange, unknown, inward urgency they are not really alive unless they are creating.” – Pearl Buck
I think Pearl was onto something.
