This Is For Artists and Crafters

It's like being under a spell....

Do you remember the time in your life when you first realized that you had the ability to create something that others admired? Perhaps it was a page that you had colored or some sticks glued together that garnered the "oohs" and the "aahs". Maybe you made some  new clothes for your doll, or a pincushion for Mom. Did you make breakfast for Dad or fashion a bouquet for a neighbor? Write your own song? How about decorating your room or putting together a fashionable frock? If you have a creative bone in your body you most likely remember the path that lead you to an artistic life.

Last week I had the pleasure of meeting a budding young artist named "Phoebe". Some of her creations are greeting cards and she also makes lovely potholders.



Aren't these precious??

Such joy in sharing her art with the world!


Adorable!


What is so special about Phoebe? She has the wide-eyed wonderment and curiosity of a young child and the ability to create with joy and abandonment. She is gifted. I hope that in our friendship I am lucky enough to have some of that wear off on me!

Like most artists, I have a deep admiration for people that are able to use their creative talents to make our world a more colorful and beautiful place in which to live. But how often do we get a chance to thank them personally for sharing their talents?

Do you know someone that knits?

To all of the creative, artistic people out there-

Thank you for every stitch, every design, stroke of the paint brush and swing of the hammer! You make our world a better place.

Crafting away,
~Susan
