I never in a million years would have thought that I could get such joy and pleasure from creating things. I have always loved to make things, but not like I have in the past year. I only wish I would have started earlier! I often think of all the time that has passed that I could have been creating, but I have to stop myself from looking back with regrets and realize that I have to look forward. There are so many things I want to do and want to make, so many techniques and different mediums I want to try my hand at. I just pray that God help me use the time he gives me each day wisely, and that I will use each and every minute in a productive way.
I made this little Valentine cutie this past weekend. I had so much fun with her, she didn't turn out at all like I had planned, but that's all part of the journey. I think that is why I love expressing myself through making things. The whole process teaches me so much along the way. Whether it be patience, following directions, or just using my heart a little more than my head. This was the case with my little Valentine doll, once I quit thinking about it so much she started to take shape.
