growing up....

Why is it that I always feel like the youngest one in the room?  And I'm not talking about looks here people.  I'm talking about ???????  I'm not quite sure really.  Is it confidence?   Is it experience?  Is it education? or lack of?   Is it innocence or naivety?  Possibly...or is that just me romancing the idea of inadequecy (sp?) (I couldn't even look this word up correctly in the dictionary) (OMG) That makes me think it must me the latter!   But noooooooooooooo.....I don't want that to  be the answer!  I want to be as capable as everyone else, and common sense tells me I am, and so does my instinct....but still I question myself always.  Will I ever feel like a "real" grown up?  Do I even want to?  I don't know...what I do know is that I want to feel strong and confident.  I know I CAN!  I CAN! I CAN! I CAN!  I BELIEVE IN MYSELF, at least I beleive in my creative self.  I LOVE MY CREATIVE SELF.  She is the best!  But I don't want to refer to her as "SHE" anymore-thats ME!  When will I give myself the credit I deserve?  SOON!

This is how I currently see myself....I hope I do another self portrait soon....

An art doll?

I'd love to make cloth doll, but I am a horrible sewer!  If I could find a "blank" doll, then perhaps I might give it a try...any suggestions?

A fun new partnership...

I have a brand new friend and partnership with a creative, lovely soul.   Her name is Cat and she makes these wonderful, unique lockets.  She has linked up with many wonderful artists and all the lockets are just adoraable.  I'm so honored to be a part of her work.  Thank you so much Cat for letting me be a part of your creations!  I'm so proud :)

Her line is called POLARITY.  Check out her Etsy site here.  These would make wonderful, unique gifts for anyone in your life, and you can even put photos inside!
