Believe in Magic

There are days when I sit frustrated at my desk because no new ideas are presenting themselves...the creative well feels like it's gone dry...and I feel like walking away and giving up.
Sometimes its good to walk away because the flow just isn't happening...but other times I just sit and be patient...
I tap my fingers on my desk...sigh a little...hold my head in my hands and say to myself..."What to do? What to do?"
I swivel my desk chair around and I gaze at all the things around me...stuff I've hoarded, supplies I have collected...things waiting to be made into something...surely there is inspiration in here somewhere.
 I walk over and start pulling things out...ahhh this won't work...but maybe this will...
I make a little pile of possibility...some metal doughnut cutters I rusted and distressed along time ago and a collection of vintage hooked rug cup coasters that were gifted to me last year.
The wheels start churning and I say...what if.
Then the magic happens and everything's a blur...
Each little character gets their own doughnut cutter pincushion...
I love it when things come together in unexpected ways!
Believe in yourself...
Believe in your ability to create beautiful things.
Trust, faith, practice, perseverance and a little fairy dust for good measure!


PS. All the above pieces will be put up for adoption in my up and coming Etsy art show and sale. As well there will be three mice on spools available for purchase...the other two will be the same as the one pictured above. If you should have any questions please email me and I will be happy chat with you.
