Well, I've had the urge to play with clay lately as you can see by my recent posts. I'm still in the mood and still playing. I've been working on 'pieces' for a shabby chic cottage birdhouse for the garden. I made the little sign post, which may end up being black to replicate iron and I also made a few fun flowery pieces to attach.
Sometimes, even though there is no real purpose to it, sometimes I think you just need to do it. To create it. To produce those ideas that flood your head to come out of your hands and into space.
I feel guilty that I'm spending time working on something that won't bring income to my family - is that OK? I'm not sure. It's not like things aren't difficult but I'm hoping just the act of creating has some merit in itself. I hope even though there is no real 'profit' from doing something you love, that the act is still a worth while endeavor.
Do other 'creative' people struggle with these questions too.........do you?
