Mother Nature likes to craft, see all of her beautiful handy work. Her frosted glitter, provides me, with memories of my childhood in Maine. I miss home, i think especially during the holidays, it is natural to want to go home,....your heart is their visiting. A scent, a sight or scene can open the door from the past....the smell of pine(candles, i have a fake tree) and the frosty
air with the beautiful designs of nature...take me back to being 10. I had a camera then, nothing special, but it gave me insight to see the distinct beauty in all of nature's wonders. There is beauty everywhere, i think this was when the artistic door was opened; my vision has never been the same. It was the year, I need prescription glasses, which tweaked I how saw things.
This did improve my artistic view and grades. I won 1st place in an art contest in the elementary school, til Billy G showed up and knocked me off my pedestal the following year.
Billy G and I didn't see eye to eye, my Christmas train, was the old fashion one, from days gone by; his was the sleek, faster, newer model. The teacher, proudly hung them both and said
there was room for both, winking, while the boys and girls voiced whose they liked better.
I think it is hard to put oneself out there, it can be cold, when you live around people who aren't
crafty, artistic, who don't understand your need to decorate a room first then clean or you rather
make something, take photos then watch this ball game/race/etc. They try to appreciate your vision, your unique slant to their world...but they just don't get it...until they get their hands and heart involved.
I am soooo thankful for the blogging community; Being a military spouse, i have not had the fortune of being around crafty people. I know there are artist out there, but for some reason, i didn't meet them. I now see so much art n' talent on a daily basis and how artistic types, tend to blur the lines, creativity shows up in many forms. It is like a gift everyday to see/read other's hopes, dreams and struggles. I finally feel like i have found, my people...for a long time, I just knew i was different. I would hear comments, i would never have thought of that.
You have a different thought process....etc. I feel so much joy for the doors that the internet has opened and continues to. Thank you!
