So what have I been up to?
This set is called Romanov as when I was making it I was reminded of some of the amazing patterns that are part of the Winter Palace in Russia. They really aren't my normal style but I really enjoyed making them.
As I was making them I became aware that they were similar to other glass artists beads. As I thought this and thought about their designs, the bead I was making turned into mush, the design slipped, and the glass boiled. Keeping a focus on my bead was really important. To express my voice even though similar potentially to others meant that I created something I was proud of.
The other thing that I’m excited about is that today is the first time I get to focus on my writing projects. I have many half finished stories and I hope to spend some regular dedicated time working on them.
So here are my thoughts for Trust, Gratitude, Inspiration Friday… I'm just really enjoying thinking about this as a regular part of my blogging.
- Trust – I’m trusting today that although it feels like my story telling voice has disappeared, by creating space for it, it will begin to shine.
- Grateful – last week I was was saying I was trusting that I had made the right decision to start promoting and selling my beads again. Within minutes of listing I had a sale, thank you
- Inspiration – Following the sale I feel really inspired just to be me, to do the things I love.
