for Your Inspiration: More Old Things


 More heart stopping little chests full of small drawers, and lovely, odd, compositions.

There is something so enticing about a set of drawers with the word spools on it. Wooden boxes have always attracted me and one that is sewing related really strikes accord.

Lyric,

I have a question and I am not sure were to post it.

I have enjoyed making art of some kind all my life. I started quilting about 20 yrs ago. In the past 5-6 years I have been moving more and more to Art Quilting. Late last year I challenged myself to create a quilt a day. Well, that lasted for 32 days ending on Thanksgiving day when the holidays got the best of my creativity and time. The quilts were each 6x6 and lots of fun to do. I was reading every book I could get my hands on, including yours which I purchased at the 2010 Houston International Quilt Show. It was a great way to try different printing techniques, hand drying, beading etc… You can go to my blog to see them, http://michaelpaulspassion.blogspot.com/ . With the new year here I am finding it hard to get back into my art. So my question, after all that is, how do you keep the creativity going… how do you keep the passion alive? I wish I could work on it every day, but life and the need to make a living and keep a household gets in the way. My dream life is no work & no commitments…just art 24/7 eat art, sleep art, live art, my art. HELP!?!
