So the question is: why am I on it?
Because girls just wanna have fun, and blogging is fun for me.
So when Bliss (one of my oldest—not in age, but in time—blogging friends) asked if I wanted to join the tour, of course I said yes because tours are fun!
(You know Bliss, don’t you? She is currently addicted to mosaicking, if that’s a verb.)
I am answering the same questions that everyone else is answering, so here goes:
1. What are you working on right now?
In truth, I am not working on anything except a painting that I have promised to have ready for a show. However, Marlon my floor man is working on my guest room floor. After Marlon finishes, I will put the clothes back in the closet, put the furniture back, hang the new curtains and vintage paintings, and make the bed look nice. At which point I will take pictures and you can see the finished product! (One room done, 10 to go.) DL is working on more industrial furniture, which is why I hired Marlon.
2. How does my work differ from others in this genre?
Here’s where I think this gets a little muddy. I’m not sure to what “work” this question is referring. If it’s referring to making or re-making furniture, then my stuff isn’t a lot different than most of the other painted furniture out there. DL’s stuff is different, because he buys entire factories full of
3. Why do I write/create what I do?
I can’t really answer that. I will say that I HAVE to. I have to have a creative outlet, or I cannot function. I went into teaching because (at the time) it was a career where I had the freedom to create. That is no longer the case.
So, instead of pouring my creative energies into my teaching, I now pour them into all kinds of
Folks who like to read my blog have found it, and they are great followers and a lot of fun to engage with, via comments. I hope they have as much fun reading this blog as I have writing it! (And my peeps seem to enjoy the Downton commentaries.)
4. How does your writing/creative process work?
I’m not sure I have a ‘process.’ I write down ideas when I have them, either typing them into my phone or writing them down in a little notebook I carry. Then, when I want to make something or write something, I have ideas! (More ideas than I will ever use, if you want to know the truth.) Also, Pinterest. Pinterest is the debbil. But mostly, it's just stream-of-consciousness when I write, which can be awkward, and many times I forget to go back and edit before I post. Which is NOT good writing, but hey! I'm busy!
Mucho thanks to Bliss Ranch for inviting me to participate! I am tagging Eliesa, and you will love checking out her kitchen remodel!
