It's jewelry that I have been creating for the past few days!
My Sunday trip to Northern Liberties (read further) inspired these new earrings. They are created with screen and fabric, which make them extremely light. I ended up sewing a stitch down the back to add an extra "funk" to the design!
Stitching that adds a little "funk" :)
Thoughts For The Day
I am back in the swing of things and creativity is the gift that I am not sure I could live without. On Sunday I went to a part of Philadelphia called Northern Liberties. It's an up and coming, quaint but large hub of prolific artists (both amateur and experienced) who's seemingly sole reason for living is to create. They have found ways to support themselves and are doing a wonderful job at it.
I have been knowing for some time that my success lies on these following things (to name a few):
God - Obedience to His will is of the utmost importance. His timing is impeccable, and I must cease each moment that is given. Praying and asking for something without action is futile. He has already mapped out the journey, and I need to stay on the course that is layed out in the map.
Networking - No man is an island. To think that I can make this journey without others is preposterous. Learning from and mingling with other business minded folks forces me to grow in areas that I am well versed in and some areas that prove to be the opposite.
Community - Surrounding myself around, and immersing myself in a community that is of the same mind frame is so important for the growth of my work. Right-brained folks (the side that is associated with recognizing faces, expressing emotions, music, reading emotions, color, images, intuition, and creativity) tend to think drastically different than their left-brained counterparts. I am realizing that I need to be around other artists that think in the same book if not on the same page.
I am working this current surge of motivation! Continue to read about my journey and don't forget to add your comments! Until next post.....
Pearls of Wisdom:
“Community is a sign that love is possible in a materialistic world where people so often either ignore or fight each other. It is a sign that we don't need a lot of money to be happy--in fact, the opposite.”
