I think it only appropriate to begin my blog by posting a tribute to a fictional character whose name (with some variation in the spelling) I share. Edith Ann, portrayed by Lily Tomlin, describes a child's creative process perfectly while recounting the making of a simple sandwich.
As I searched the world of cyber quotations, hoping to find the perfect little tag line to express my own creative motivation, I came across this wonderful statement.
That is what I do. I lose myself in the object I am creating and then travel many twists and turns as it carries me along..... just like the simple act of making a sandwich took the fictional Edith Ann along her merry way. Sometimes, what I make tastes pretty good and sometimes even a faithful dog won't eat it. No matter, its the process I love and the faithful friend will stick around to gobble up the next, perhaps more delicious sandwich, with delight.
This blog is a place to share the motivation, the process and the product . Stick around, I think it will be delightful. Perhaps you may want to jump in and create something, appreciate from afar or take a product home for yourself. (my etsy shop is soon to come).
In any case, enjoy my namesake as she teaches you a little something about how this creative stuff all comes about.
