The workshop that keeps on giving,
That was Beth's. I continue to play.
I notice my ongoing fascination with squares.
Squares. BOXES. Order. Symmetry.
Containment which allows for freedom & chaos.
Ohhhh. I get it!
I learned about creative surface design,
but I also learned about how to organize materials
because Beth had
So So Many!
(Click on Sew Sew Art ,
I've been learning that my creative spirit can't flow without
organizing my materials!
That generous Beth lent me her BOX of metallic threads.
Sparkly. Shimmery. Oooooh! Thank you, generous Beth!
The BOX for raw material for my August Art Show.
The BOX for hand sewing & little papers,
for book covers, for little collages.
For now it has to wait for me in its BOX
because I need to be into the Art Show BOX.
Another BOX of Bookmaking stuff.
Beth's Beads. Waxed threads. Buttons!
A BOX of travel journals from France voyages.
Also waiting for me.
Rita's saved BOXES,
thrown in a corner of the spare room.
You never know when you'll need another BOX!
I'm remembering one of the first magical
BOXES in my life:
Jenny's Mom's BOX of old clothes in the basement,
put there so we could play Dress-Up
when we were wee kids!!
Thank you Jenny's Mom!
How do YOU organize your materials?
