Every day, a blue feather day.
This is the first cocoon birthed out of the sponsored Gratitude Project. The Giver requested a cocoon of blue, and thoughts of feathers and light for her Reciever.
It was so much fun to create this with the support of the Giver, I've said it before, I'll say it again- I love collaborating with people to create beauty. It's so much fun for me to interpret an emotion/intention into color, wool and beads, especially with the challenge of translating through someone else's point of view.
For this one, I used bright blue, periwinkle and copper beads, vibrant turquoise thread and a wee opal, shining it's rainbow.
I have another to start working on now, and can't wait to get started on it!
A love letter to my fellow artists.
Dear beloved souls,
You are not alone, I see you.
Keep making, keep writing, keep struggling to express that push behind your heart, the spark in your mind, the good fight in your eyes.
Weather the storm.
Wake up in the morning, stay up late into the night. Savor the afternoon. Greet your muse like an old friend, learn to lay fallow when she takes a vacation (perhaps... you need one too?). Pour yourself some tea, drink some water, don't forget to eat. Get out of your studio and doodle. Rest.
So much love,
