I’ve had some shifts in my thought regarding my Art, and I think it’s pretty interesting. It’s one of those things where you feel a thought/idea burning into your head, but you’re not quite sure of all the possibilities or implications of it yet. So, I have some exploring to do. I’ll put some of it up in the portfolio section of my site throughout the summer. I’m also hoping to finish updating my site, which has been a slow-going process during the school year. Now that I have some time off to think and chill out, I’m excited to finally do what I want to do with my time.
I’ve also gotten into some crafty things this year. I used to mock the crafty people, but now, here I am, with a bunch of mosaic tiles, adhesive, and some carbide nippers. We recently got some patio furniture and I started my craftiness by planting some stuff, then painting a shelf for my plants. Now I want to make some coasters & a drink serving tray. It just makes me feel calmer & more connected to life to be able to create.
I also think that I want to have a distinctive home. A place where things aren’t all just bought from Target, but that things here are unique to us and who we are. I have a picture I wanted to frame & bought a plain wood frame from Michaels and painted it. No one in the world has that frame. It’s unique to me and where I am in life right now. It may not be perfect, but it is me and it is more special than the cooler Target frame. Oh, and it was a whole lot cheaper too.
