In browsing on Facebook I came across a thought-provoking statement that spoke volumes to me in how it relates to the creative individual. For a seed to achieve its full expression it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. To cheap jerseys someone who doesn’t understand growth it would look like complete destruction. ― Cynthia Occelli Creative individuals will enjoy times when their work flourishes and blooms. This season of productivity may be lengthy and very rewarding. However, we must understand that after a period of flourishing, the blossoms will fade and a dormant time will ensue. During this time our creativity survives on the bounty we collected during harvest, but nothing new or fruitful will be produced. In time, seeds are planted. If they are not cultivated, they are less likely to sprout into a new season of growth. Yes, random seeds here or there may sprout and pop up, but we all know that a garden that is cared for will produce far more than one that is left alone. When creativity is dormant you are likely to feel that the creative muse has abandoned you. During this time you must be the one to cultivate your own cheap nfl jerseys creative soil and plant new seeds. In time they will burst open and come cheap oakley sunglasses completely undone. Although it will be fragile at first, the new season of growth will produce the most beautiful and abundant display of blossoms cheap football jerseys you could ever imagine.

Change – A Sure Thing

The morning view of Mt. Mestas from my house. September 10, 2014 What the heck happened? It’s 36˚ outside this morning! That’s 2.2 celsius for my international peeps. It’s only September 12 and I’m sure when the clouds lift, our surrounding peaks will have snowy white caps. I learned that in Alaska the first few high elevations snows are called termination dust indicating summer has ended. We are most certainly getting termination dust. cheap nfl jerseys Where did the summer go? How can things change so fast? Maybe I should ask…”Where did life go?” September 12, 2014 and Mt. Mestas is hidden. Time marches on and I certainly can’t stop it. Time is both our enemy and our friend. Time is all that we really have. Time is what we sell to earn an cheap jerseys income. Income is what we have to buy things. Time is what some people invest in order to grow and manage a garden in order to harvest their sustenance. Time is simply put, the best gift you have ever been given. It is a treasure and should be spent wisely. We all have a start date and an end date. It’s what we do between those two dates that is our own time. Our time is what we call life! And boy does life change. For years I was not much more than a skinny runt. I was never sick. Had no allergies. Could eat as much as I wanted without gaining a pound. I was energetic. I was also  struggling to just get by. I had a somewhat productive music career that sustained me – sort of. Music was my passion. Music had always been my passion. It was my life. Back in those days quilting was not even on the horizon. Then something happened. It just happened. I was gifted my Granny’s old 1955 Sears Kenmore sewing machine and I thought I would take it for a spin. Who knew that would be such a pivotal day in my life?  My music continued for a few years – it was my career. While I was walking through the shifting sands in life, I somehow transitioned into a quilter. Seriously? How did that happen? Who would have thought? The strangest thing is that there really wasn’t much of a change inside of me. That’s because I’m an artist at heart. I was born to be creative. I’m happiest when I’m...

Creativity: Capture More Family Memories

Creativity: Capture More Family Memories

This photo of Keegan using my ‘big-boy’ camera sums up the week. Photo by Macy, age 11 This summer we had a family gathering. My niece, her husband, my nephew, his wife, and their kids (two boys and two girls ranging in age from 6 to 16) came to Colorado to visit. Add Justin and I to the count and there were 10 of us total. We gathered for a week of family fun. In these situations usually somebody ends up being the DP (designated photographer). Because I love to take pictures, the DP is usually me. Being the hyper-creative sort that I am, I came up with an idea to get everyone involved. I asked everyone to be a photographer. For their travel day, I asked everyone to take a photo of family during the drive to Colorado from Texas. I also asked them to give me their favorite photo from the drive. Once they arrived, we Cheap Jerseys talked about my idea and we agreed to try to do the following each day. Submit their  favorite drogas photo of the day from all the photos they took. It could be anything – family, artistic, abstract, or otherwise. Submit a family photo of the day. This didn’t necessarily mean a group photo and “family” could be interpreted loosely as you will see. Submit a fun photo of the day. It could be silly or in some way, whimsical. Submit a challenge photo of the day. For the challenge topic, each morning we would make suggestions Wholesale NFL Jerseys and come to a mutual agreement. The challenge gave everyone the opportunity to keep their eyes open and think creatively. Naturally most of the photos documented our time together but they were fun and engaging. Our challenges were: leaf or leaves, round, one, stone, cross, and elements. Some photos were taken on smart phones while others were taken with cameras. By having the entire family participate we were able to see the week from other’s perspectives and it provided an ongoing activity for everyone. Since the DP is usually behind the camera, this group endeavor allowed for everyone to be in included in the photos. The project was a success. Not everyone turned in four photos every day, but having the extra photos from different perspectives was fantastic. The challenge generated a collection of images that will forever be a family treasure. Over the past two years I’ve done several books on demand. I use Blurb (www.blurb.com)...

Creative Vacation Photography

Creative Vacation Photography

Those following me know Justin and I just spent a few days with friends riding our Harley motorcycles in Glacier National Park. It was my first time doing such an adventure. Packing clothes and camera gear for a week away (to be carried on a motorcycle) is challenging. When asking what camera gear I should pack I got plenty of replies from “take nothing, enjoy the ride” to “take everything, you will end up needing the one thing you left behind.” It’s a fact that I need to create so I took everything including the tripod which wouldn’t fit – but then I realized I could strap it to the luggage rack. A new location – especially one that flourishes with such beauty – provides the opportunity to create visual expressions with my camera. It offers the opportunity to be creative and capture images I cannot capture at home. Like everyone, I would take the standard ‘grand vista’ photos, but my personal creative goal is to create images (artistic, perhaps impressionistic) that would not necessarily document how beautiful the park is, but rather create images that would be an impression, tell a story, or perhaps stand alone as art (fine art?). When you are finished reading this article, feel free to view more images from this trip on my Smugmug.com gallery. Why Photography? Photography enables the creative individual almost instant art these days. You can do it anywhere – literally, and if you begin seeing your world in little vignettes of composition, it will strengthen your ability to design when working in other creative artistic mediums. Seven Tips for Vacation Photography 1. Know your camera and know your settings without fussing with the owner’s manual. Point-and-shoot is fine but there are limitations that will not allow you to do certain things. Since this is not a lesson on the techniques of photography, I’ll just say – know your camera and learn the flexible options available to you. In order to create blurred water, the camera had to be on a slow shutter speed and stabilized on a tripod (or a rock in this case). 2. When shooting vistas, take care when framing the shot. Even though the mountain may be the thing that draws the eye, if the clouds are dramatic, raise the camera up and feature them! I don’t do rules (surprise, surprise), but the rule of thirds is a...

On Creativity – It’s Fragile

On Creativity – It’s Fragile

Not only is creativity fragile, but the creative process often goes on a path leading into the darkness of a unfamiliar forest. Once there, the direction is unclear. The path diverges and splits leading off into many directions and there are choices to be made. It’s important to follow your intuition and blaze on, knowing that you might end up going in circles before successfully finding your way through to the other side. You must remember, you took the journey alone, carrying with you the tools and experiences that live inside of you. Nobody else will ever understand the choices you made along the way. They will not know the fears you experienced, or appreciate the insecurities you felt while making your choices. All they see is that you have arrived with a finished work. It is very important to remember that the approval of others is not something you need. It is not important that they understand your journey. It’s your creative effort and yours to evaluate – yours to like – yours to dislike. Your personal opinions are the only ones that really matter. People who have been through similar situations – those who share similar creative endeavors – are people from whom you can seek advice, critique, and encouragement. These are people whose experience in a certain area has given them wisdom. It’s the same wisdom you develop as you travel on your own creative journey. It’s fine to ask “Should I have turned left instead of right?” “When I come to the big rock should I climb over it, or go around it?” Regardless of the answer, understand that that particular creative effort is a chapter on your journey that is over. Certainly you can take the words of wisdom (the critique) with you when you depart on your next journey, but don’t try to go back and redo the one you just completed. Don’t let the words of a trusted counselor defeat you. Furthermore, if someone has never taken that same journey through that mystical creative forest (and believes they have a right to critique your work – and proceeds to do so) don’t allow their critical or unfriendly words destroy your spirit. I know, that easier said than done, but stand firm on the fact that you made the best choices you could with the experience and tools you had at the time. Here’s a quote from a comic genius....
