A Bit On My Latest Creative Projects
Creativity is such an important part of my life. In many ways, it provides me with a form of meditation. When I am creating artwork, my mind clears and I am reminded of the beauty that surrounds all of us each day. Embroidery has become such a positive medium for me for these reasons and also that it is something that I create with my hands, sans a screen. I'd love to start showcasing and selling pieces, but for now, it feels so fun to experiment with different colored threads and patterns.
I also love that I can take my embroidery almost anywhere. On a recent Sunday, I took my project to an Upper West Side Starbucks and just sat for a few hours stitching away. It felt so relaxing!
A few weekends ago, I participated in an art retreat at Squam Lake in New Hampshire. Again, another wonderful moment to connect with creativity and this time, nature. I feel like something beautiful happens when creativity happens in nature. Somehow, a little extra magical juju weaves (see what I did there, haha!) it's way into the art; the craft becomes infused with mother nature.
Do you have any creative projects that you are currently working on? If so, please share! And if not, let yourself play with new forms of expression!
