I have been a little obsessed lately with creating these glass orbs, making them in different sizes, with little icons, or special treasures on them. I think some will make a nice gift for someone special………they’re made with a lot of L O V E.
At some point I’ll have to put them aside for a bit and get on with few more Christmas preparations. I love this time of year for all the sparkle, glitter and gift giving. But best of all, I love spending time with our girls and wonderful friends.
Speaking of the love for SPARKLE, I’d like to share with you some beautiful photos that I found on Pinterest……that I’d like to call, “An Enchanting Path to Dreamland”.
Come dance with me under the sparkling lights
so quiet and careful on tippy toes,
through soft glistening snow and glowing light……
soon Beauty and magic will find us
and sweep us gently off
Creative Ebb and Flow…….After finishing any larger project, I usually put my supplies out of sight for a while and tend to things in life that need doing. You know, like appointments, shopping and domestic stuff. My creative juices take a needed break, and quite frankly, during this ebb time, I am so creatively uninspired, that I don’t think I could even do a popsicle stick craft…..not that I’d want to!
Sometimes it can take days or weeks for inspiration to return and give me a nudge to busy my hands again. However, I have learned to be patient and eventually an idea will come and I am happily flowing in my “imaginary world” once more. This time, the idea of making crystal and glass balls popped into my head. I love orbs, sparkle, whimsy, glass and glitter, so this project is making me feel incredibly happy! When you hold them they feel like a ball of treasure….beautiful, powerful, and magical!
