New Inspiration

Today was such a wonderful afternoon. Several friends of mine have been asking to come over to play so I invited them over for a crafternoon. I set up my dining room table with tools and different textures and gave a short demo of how to make a pendant. They just jumped right in and soon they had completed dozens. Not many of my friends have experience with clay, so I loved watching them figure out how to use my tools in original ways. It was inspiring to see someone use what I think of as a carving tool in a completely different way. I have been so inspired that I am heading to my studio for a few hours. If you ever have a creative block, the antidote is to invite your friends for a crafternoon!

And the gossip while working is pretty fun too!

I love that "crafternoon"! I might have to borrow that word sometime.
