With a Loving Heart
It's been a pretty consistent theme of mine that I never seem to have enough time to do everything I want to. I'm sure I'm not alone with this sentiment, as I know many of you also juggle careers, families and art, among other realities.
I often find myself wishing I was more efficient with my time, more prolific in my jewelry design.
I become easily overwhelmed by the pressures at work or too many social demands, and just want to come home to my cozy studio where I can create to my heart's content.
And I find that if I try to 'force' the designs, they usually don't please me.
It takes an uncluttered mind and a loving heart to come up with what I think is beautiful.
When I spend the time getting lost in the creative process and allow my imagination to run freely, then I feel I'm at my best.
Of course, having gorgeous materials to work with helps too! ;)
Perhaps I'll never be able to churn out massive quantities of jewelry, but when I make things that I love, with love, that is when the magic happens.
I hope all of you do something you love this weekend! <3
