Wait For It

I’m in awe of artists that can create everyday.

If I could find that daily inspiration, I’m pretty sure I would too.

Problem is … I can’t force the artist within, I have to coax her, like a lost dog on the street.

For me … there has to be a catalyst and that catalyst has to have friends that want to play nice together.

When they do … Oh, what a feeling ;) … it has to be better than a runner’s high!

Unfortunately, I can’t seem to run far enough to get inspiration to kick in … it’ll come to me when it’s time and still learning that the joy is in the journey;)

“There are times to stay put, and what you want will come to you, and there are times to go out into the world and find such a thing for yourself.”

Go Glue Something

Just Bite The Bullet

Something you don't see everyday.

Cleaned and organized my tile studio.

It took 9 solid hours.

Guess that happens when you don’t clean for over a year.

Struggled to justify the time but I was forced into it by hosting a party in the space.

Happy to report that you can find joy in organizing, if you choose to.

Wondered, more than once, what someone else would do with all of this stuff, if I wasn’t here.

Scary fun.

Certainly has the potential to be a once in a lifetime garage sale … sorry I’ll miss it.

Mosaic Tile
That's only a quarter of it.

P.S. The party was a blast!

The List That Never Was

Release date 1/6/11

Back in 2005, I coined myself as an “Artist” … to actual people.  Even though I’ve been creating art for well over 30 years. 

Well, they asked me and I choked out the confession of being the creator of the mosaic tile pieces that they were referring to.

I would have been able to that off my bucket list, if I had had one.

Feel a resolution coming on …

It’s true … if you write it down, or just continue to put it out there,  it shows up.

Even with a bucket list scribbled in my mind, it has always included authoring a book.

Must be why I just started typing … curious punctuation and all.

Luckily, Stackpole Books stumbled upon my mosaic tile passion and they asked me to write a book about it.

Now, I can √ Author off the bucket list that never was.

“Making Mosaics with Found Objects” is available on Amazon with a really good pre-order special.

Hope you’ll check it out.

Happy Gluing!
