Time to grab my purse and do a little window shopping on Main Street to get inspired for the Christmas season. Why do I prefer walking in a store to browsing online? All my senses are involved. First of all these little shops always smell delicious with the scent of candles, perfum and sachets.
Thirdly why I go out of my way to find unique shops is because at Christmas time so many unusual and glitzy things show up. You think you have everything you need and want and then there it is, some cute little thing you've never seen before. After a couple of hours of window shopping I hurry home and write my letter to Santa! Plus my head is full of ideas for those on my Christmas list. It really is a sensory experience unlike sitting at the computer scrolling up and down a screen.
When work is play. It's that time of year when projects have deadlines. Ideas must now manifest themselves in fabric or paper. Holiday boutiques and retail shops must have the goods for their customers to indulge in the holiday spirit of gift giving. While I'm working in my studio the piles around me get higher and higher. In fact, scissors and the seam rippers are always getting lost in the chaos. Buttons, lace, ribbon and bobbins in a array of colors cover the tables.
Here's a sneek peek of some of the things I have been working on.
