I have finally decide to take advantage of the BLOG function on my website.
Fear of failure is a concept which does not often enter my mind. Setting goals which are within reach and willingness to make goal adjustments when appropriate have been helpful.
Every day that I have time to enter my creative work space I remind myself to create something new either in design or method of construction. If my new concept does not work out the way that I pictured it in my mind, I am minus the time for creation and the cost of materials, but have learned from the process.
I try to create wearable, functional pieces which are as much as possible one of a kind expressions of the wearer and myself. I do not use patterns. If I am am asked to make a piece which is outside of the realm of possibility for me to wear myself, I will offer options of others makers who may be more in keeping with the esthetic which was requested.
My inspirations and motivations are everywhere- home, work, stable, and feedback from friends, clients, and prospective clients. Comments and questions are welcome!
