Wednesday's Words: " Never Give UP".....

Just thought I 'd share this quote, which is very deep on so many levels, especially for creative individuals

"Just because something doesn't do what you planned it to do doesn't mean it's useless"

by Thomas Alva Edison

So many times in life , things just don't seem to go how we planned, and at this point so many of us "GIVE UP" and figure WELL IT'S NO USE". Then we often justify this with ourselves by saying "WELL I TRIED".

As an artist more times than not, projects don't come come out the way they were planned in our minds, and if at each time we figured it was useless, than the world wouldn't be filled with any ounce of creativity...JUST IMAGINE...

Was there a time when a project, craft or other life experience didn't go as you planned??? IF so, how did you cope with it, did the thoughts of giving up ever come to mind? How was your end result?? We'd love to hear your stories...feel free to share..

Wednesday's Words : " Anyone can Learn"

"Take the attitude of a student , never be too big to ask questions,never know too much to learn something new". Og Mandino

This quote is very fitting , especially for creative individuals,  we as artisans are constantly learning new techniques and ways of doing things. Knowledge is always around us, so let's not be afraid to use it and learn.

 What new skill have your learned recently?? Any cool stories you like to share?? We are listening.....

Quote of the Day...."Art is the only way to run away without leaving home".

I decided to do this Tidbit Thursday blog about a famous quote....  

"Art is the only way to run away without leaving home".  
BY ~Twyla Tharp

I thought this quote is very powerful , and true at least for myself...When creating, I tend to let my mind wander and take flight to many destinations without boundaries. I realized that this is only possible through art making. 

One, you don't have to pack a suitcase, 
Two, make reservations, 
Third, you don't have to go in debt with travel costs.  

Does your ART allow you to run away without leaving home??? IF so, How ? What places does your mind wander to while your creating??? Love to hear your art journeys????
