Tinker Verve

creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

I really am alive and quite well…

I find it hard to know what to say for myself.  I love it when I blog regularly…love it!  It’s become part of a new norm for me and it’s one of the many things that makes me happy.  I’ve never wanted to write posts because I feel like I have to though.  So {I know it’s all too obvious} this summer I just haven’t been very faithful to this sweet, comfy place I’ve carved out for myself.

It’s true to say that I’ve also lacked a certain creativity in my life which is also refreshing to a certain degree and yet frightening for me in another sense.

Today I asked myself, ‘what if it doesn’t come back?’  …really?  what if?

I’m fairly certain it will…it always does.

If it’s gone forever then I’ll just move {without hesitation} into another dream…having my very own milk cow!

I have a lot going on right now.  It’s my wonderful LIFE but if I shared it all in detail I’m quite sure that I would really bore you and possibly even send you away…forever…so I’ll keep it short.  I’m busily making some Market Shoppers for The Creative Connection which is literally right around the corner.

Also, the cuff that I’ve shown photos of here will be going to Ellen.  She loved the last one she saw posted here and made her own special request.  I’ll be honest…I REALLY love these.  I started one for myself but skipped ahead to Ellen’s.

…speaking of Ellen…

I first met Ellen {in person} when she attended my first art retreat last April.  Lovely gal…but I mention it here to say that I have another one coming up, October 21-23,  and I still have a few spots left.  We will have a wonderful time, guaranteed!  Would love to have you join us…

  1. Ellen,

    The cuff is absolutely beautiful. Looking around for some vintage items to make my very own. Thank you for all the wonderful ideas!

  2. I’m so sad for I won’t be able to attend the retreat. I had my heart set on it but that darn job just gets in the way. And unfortunately I do need my job since there is just me, myself and I! I so understand the not creative times. I’ve found myself in one also. Maybe it is the busy summer with all the other activities that our brain goes on overload. I’m sure when the warmth of Fall sinks in so will the creative juices. Enjoy your weekend and keep posting for I miss yours!
