My creative landscape

Dear Fellow Journalers,

I have a confession to make. I am a “craft fliter”. Don’t know what that is? My definition  is  someone who flits from one craft to another and leaves bits and pieces all over their craft room. My secret came out this week at our monthly Book Chat meeting. We were discussing our summer books and my comment on “It is all to much” by Peter Walsh (TV host of “Clean Sweep”) led the group to explore the half-completed projects we have in our homes.

Later that day, I started thinking about the creative process. Let’s face it, we are all changing the creative landscapes of our lives. We do it everyday! From the simplest (change the way we drive to work) to the difficult choice  (changing jobs). Some of us are much better planners and organizers and some of us “flit” from project to project with no plan at all.

I believe that all of us, no matter where we are on this journey, are making progress. We take big and small steps to change our lives and the lives of others and sometimes we succeed and sometimes we fail but we get up the next morning and try again.

As the autumn winds begin to blow and the days grow shorter, my wish for all of us is that our creative journeys lead us to discover hidden gems and shinning moments of clarity. That paper snippet, fabric swatch, forgotten glittered ornament are destined for greater glory.

So, shake off the doldrums and square off your shoulders -your creative journey begins again NOW!
