Bead Soup is Almost Here

My name was not drawn for this round of Lori Anderson's Bead Soup Blog Party; at first I was very sad about that, but this year has been a whirlwind of unexpected crises and changes, so it was a blessing in disguise.   My creative well is beyond empty.  It has been crushed and obliterated into nothing.  (Yeah, I know, melodramatic much?)

I have several shows coming up, and very little stock.  I've been trying to force my muse, and of course she's having nothing of that.  I've stayed away from the things that bring me joy and inspire me. Sometimes, it is the little things that can ignite the flames.  My second BSBP partner, Diane Cook of Rosa and Josie's posted a giveaway on her blog, and in the post she mentioned her Bead Soup partners, including me.  Her work is so beautiful and delicate. Just looking at her work brought a smile to my face.  It felt good.  Check out Marian's blog and Nan's blog for some more inspiring art!

You are going to make it and the muse will come back. Start with simple basic things that you always need like head pins, make 200. It always works for me because after 200 of anything I go crazy and have to do something else.
