Creative therapy

I have lived my whole life being a creative person, as a child I had to have something to glue, sew or draw on or I would start to go crazy. I’m still that way today. It’s like therapy for me to create something new. Thank God for my business, which has allowed me to fulfill most of my creative needs. Bridal white and Ivory however, do get a little boring after a while, so every season I would design one headpiece just for me. It was always outrageous; something I knew would be a hard sell to my conservative buyers. That didn’t mater because this was my therapy. I just let myself go and designed something wonderful without thinking about my clientele. It was like I was creating art not a product. I usually sold quite a few of these because sometimes my buyers needed to venture a little out of their box. You might want to give this a try, let yourself go and get a little wild with a design, just think of it as a great creative release. When you feel better after doing this, feel free to send me a check for your therapy, my fees are really reasonable!

Awesome idea Jill. I need to get out of MY box a little (lot) more. :)

Every once in a while I have to try a craft I have never done just for something different. I love to try new things.

Thank you for the nice comment on my blog.
