I create because it brings me great joy. It is a need that I have to put paint, pen or needles to work. I also love to give my creations to the people I love. I feel a deeper connection with them as I share a bit of myself with them. We both get a smile out of it.
Creating brings me back to center. When I am stressed out or feeling like I need some space to myself I sit with my work and the world drifts away. It doesn’t matter what medium that I chose, but working daily on some bit of creative activity just brings my day together.
It is also a way to document my life without having to write it all down. It is more of a visual record of my moments and what I am interested in doing or commenting an event. Creating is also a process. I enjoy the process of expressing myself. I enjoy taking something from a dream to a reality that I can share with others.
Currently I am working on a set of gifts for my niece. I have several knitted objects for her and I would like to paint something for her as well to go into her package.
I have to go where my creative muse takes me at the moment. I drift in and out of several mediums depending on my mood. It is great to have a variety of things to go to as I like having a daily outlet.
