Allright.....temps in AZ right now where I live are running anywhere from 109 degrees to 113 in some areas....too hot to do ANYTHING outside....so I am spending time in my little studio. Cranking out "Les Bijoux de Junque" as Debra from She Who Seeks has graciously labeled my little creations.
The piece above was made for my wonderful neighbor.....who is a horse lady. In AZ.....all horse people have to own some kind of truck....to be a real cowboy...so I made her a little something to wear with her cowboy duds...although she doesn't own a truck....she can always pretend.
And then we have this:
Have a beautiful Montana friend...who is a GREAT cook....in fact she worked one summer as a ranch house cook...anyway....made this little diddy for her. From junk I have around here....as usual....using an ordinary item in a new way. Which brings me to this thought.....
Are YOU the kind of person who sees beauty where others only see junk? I know I am.....I believe that comes from thinking outside the box....or growing up as poor as a "church mouse" or being a little "wonky" I'm not sure which. (O:(O:
Which happens to fit right in with my opening quote today.....If your thinking is always so structured in black and
white and everything MUST BE PERFECT.....and you always HAVE TO MAKE GOOD SENSE.....how can you be creative? I think creativity comes from "throwing a lot of things up against the wall....and seeing which one actually sticks".
Any thoughts on this?
Hugs from the hottest place on earth....at least that is what I think today! LOL LOL
