Just gorgeous and impossible to capture in a photo!I cleaned out my studio (bead and jewelry) last week and came up with some really fun craft lots listed in my shop. There really is some great stuff in these lots... much better than the mixed you get at the craft stores. What fun they are to put together as well. I also listed some pretty things I found in my jewelry box in a new, fun section called "found objects".I love Artfire, it accommodate... » Read More

(as defined in Merriam-Webster Online)
noun : an attitude of superiority manifested in an overbearing manner or in presumptuous claims or assumptions
This is one of the more difficult topics to illustrate. I see the
stereotype clearly, the arrogant genius, the egotist artist with a body
of work that could fill galleries. Arrogance does not mean that there
is no muse. Arrogance does not mean that you can not have a very
productive career as an artist. Perhaps even there is a muse or two that
thrives off the intense energy of unbridled egotism. My reason for
writing about arrogance as a culprit ... » Read More

creativity agile while your muse has left the building. When you sit

enemy of peace of mind – the inner critic. That voice inside us that
tears apart what we are doing inch by inch, thought by thought. Freud
called it the Super Ego, others have compared it to the critical father
and even others have said it is a now unwanted helper. Whatever you call
it, it can take a moment of inspiration and tear it apart a bit at a
time until the frustrated muse makes a hasty retreat.
The inner critic at its most bold sounds like this:

Who ever told you that you could be an artist... » Read More
Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to
love the questions themselves like locked rooms and like books that are
written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which
cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the

will find them gradually, without noticing it, and live along some
distant day into the answer. ~Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet
