|This bag, a gift that went to Germany with me, is what got me started attempting to create my own thing.|
|I WAS making things during my 'era of fear' just didn't have much invested so not so worried about results. (It has a penis made out of pantyhose sewn inside the zipper...which I only showed to a few select friends).|
|This is the back side of the above bohemiannie! bag.|

I'm thrilled with the way it turned out.
|See how much my hair grew before i was brave enough to show it to my group at AQU. Or was it that it took me that long to bind it?!?!? Hmmmm|
It was featured for that exhibit in the newspaper...
and now hangs on my best friend's bedroom wall.
I named it..."That's My Story and I'm Stickin To It".
(Insert smiley face here).
Now...I said all that to say this...
EVERYthing I do is a practice piece. There are no mistakes. Only learning experiences. There is no right or wrong way...only my way. There is no fear...only un-abandoned FUN and JOY in creating the next piece.
And I've been making art every day ever since and Love, L-O-V-E, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE every minute OF it.
So...while this post isn't about what I've done yesterday...or today...it IS about what got me making art every day...
and I hope it will encourage you to do the same.
PS...I'm also linking to Pink Saturday, Paint Party Friday (because I paint with fabric and thread),Blog Link Love, My Romantic Home, Sneak Peak Friday and Artists In Blogland. Some of my favorite spots to visit.
