Craft Show

I will be doing my first craft show in a week, and I am excited. It is right in my home town practically right across the street from my house! I have to walk a grand total of like 50 yards to get there. I am hoping for a great turn out and lots of sales!

Hope you all have a great Memorial Day Weekend, and don't forget to thank the service men and women who risk their lives everyday be they soldiers, police officers, or any other branch of public service!

Heart of Gold...

While working with my polymer clay yesterday, I came up with a new series of items for my shop. It is the "Heart of Gold" series. I've got about seven pieces ready so far, and am planning to make more in other mediums as well. The idea came while I was working with the gold clay and I realized that Mother's Day is right around the corner and the phrase "Heart of gold" is commonly used to describe mothers, grandmothers, aunts, etc. So I created seven gold hearts so far in polymer clay and am hoping to make some with wire and beads as well. I am not sure how long the series will be but it will be at least 15ish pieces before it is done. I've got to finish photographing them and get them up in my shop, but that won't be for a couple days at least.

Something new...

Well, I am still lacking in inspiration a bit, but I am going to be working on something new. I already cross-stitch, and now I have decided I am going to take it in another direction and see what happens. I am going to be working on a beaded needlepoint. I have no pattern, so I will be making this one up as I go.

I have a hoop set up with white cotton as my canvas and am now working out ideas for what to do.

Needing inspiration...

As an artist, I am sure I am not the only one who sometimes feels uninspired. I've been very uninspired as of late and am unsure why. Normally my inspirations come from music, movies, books, nature, etc but lately nothing seems to do the trick. I've hardly done anything related to my crafty things in the last 2 weeks.

I think I've made like 2 pairs of earrings and I just started a necklace last night that is 3 strands of 2.5 mm silver rolo chain. I am not sure as of yet what I am going to do with it, I am thinking amethyst purple on the longest chain, black and white on the middle chain, and emerald green on the shortest chain, but at this point nothing is set in stone...

Anyone have any good ideas for inspiration, or anything they do that inspires them?
