The creative and spiritual journey of a (textile) recycler. . .

I have thought about starting a blog for a long time now. I just couldn’t seem to get started. I thought. . what would I say, what would I do and really . . . . . who would care.

Last year I had the great fortune to witness a ‘happening’. As a spouse at a reunion (I know, groan) I was both an observer and participant. This reunion was attended by some of the most creative and talented people on the face of the planet. Really, no exaggeration! But many were holding onto life long insecurities. They didn’t think they were talented enough and embarrassed to perform in front of each other for fear of . . who knows . . . finger pointing, whispers, laughter, ridicule of some sort for sure. Once it was revealed that many shared the same feelings, the healing began. And I was the lucky one. I got to witness it all and benefit as well.

So, the message is that we all think we are not good enough compared to someone else, but we are. Don’t let your fears and insecurities stop you. We can’t measure our own success by someone else’s talents.

This revelation and the kindness / support of strangers has propelled my creative journey to a place I had given up ever getting to. Tho I thought my creative juices were dried up forever, they have merely been reawakened. Many thanks to all involved in my process, including in-part . . Victoria B, Mrs. W., Charles Mc., Claudia H, Mary B, Cindy G, Sandy B, Traci B., Kat C, and my IAA family. So, thank you. I dedicate this blog to all of you!

Summertime Scavenger Hunt 2013 - Something Wrong

Still working on the photo scavenger hunt and today my post is things that are wrong or out of place. Tell me what you think....

The parking lot was full.
Every car in the lot was muted silver, blue, burgundy or similar colors.. except this one and it was day-glo green!
No lie.. I've never seen a car color so bright in my entire life!

Was at a world music & jazz festival.
There were all kinds of things for sale, like congas, African masks, rain sticks, textiles from India, belly dancing do-dads with
sparkle n spangle bling and the like.
So do you think a Beiber rug fits in?

My artieries clenched when I saw this one: fried butter

Graffitti on museum wall is just wrong, wrong, wrong...

Overgrown over the whole roof!

Steep angled, scarey


An immature adult is just least in my world

Yipes, a multi colored house

Bongs on a shelf in a market caught me totally off guard

Giving ski lift rides in 99 degrees

 A tree growing around a headstone

When was the last time you saw a phone booth?

This sign was at a rest stop of all places!
