I want to say a big thank you to all of you that left comments and have become followers. You are all awesome and make this so much fun!
I hope all of you are enjoying this first week of Spring!
I am in my studio creating fabric collage with a Spring theme. Fabric collage is so much fun but for me a little messy. I don't know about you but I have a visual messy order when I create. Are you laughing? I can hear you and I know that laugh either comes from the fact that you know exactly what I am talking about or you think I am a little off. Now I have to confess that most of my surfaces are filled, and that is usually because I have at least 4 or 5 projects going on at once. I have somewhat more ideas in my head than room, anyone like that out there? I am sure I am not the only one. Now my sister is neat as a pin and has a bin that is labeled for every thing. We are not alike and that is probably why we get along so well. Now don't get me wrong I love things to be in order and I have things displayed to inspire me and I know where everything is... it just is in artistic piles!
Such as this pile of lace in this wire basket... I love the fact that it is piled and I can see it, so I can grab just the right piece when I need to. I have a thing about my treasures being in either something old or glass containers. Just a quirk. How about you, any quirks?

I know all of us create in different modes and that is what makes it all so wonderful. Sometimes I feel like a square peg in a round hole but the older I get the more I appreciate all the differences in us. And if blogging did one thing it was to show me how different all of us are yet how much we are basically the same. How encouraging each other in our differences is like a healing ointment that covers our everyday wounds from life.
If you would like to see more of my studio, I will be featured in the next issue of Where Women Create. I am so grateful to have met the gals from this wonderful magazine and now call them friends.
I hope your first week of Spring is going fantastic and I doubt I will be able to get another post in before I leave for Texas. I will keep you posted on my trip and hopefully I can take lots of pictures. Did I mention I am going with the gals from WWC and so looking forward to spending time with such talented gals and meeting so many friends from blogland.
