On my worktable and some tiny eyeballs just for you!

There is a lot which I am creating at the moment. But it takes time and I only find this time in between all the other important aspects of the normal life. This time is then dedicated and to create earrings from polymer clay will go over  time period of days and weeks.

Just little steps... molding, pressing, baking, painting, baking again, adding, painting, glossing, drilling....

But there is a need to create, just to make "stuff". I calm down, something inside of me relaxes... settles down? It is hard to describe it in words but more often than not there is too much going on inside my brain. Not bad things, all kind of thoughts, ideas, worries as well as the opposite... just too much. Bursting. Racing. Bubbling. (I always wanted to use this word! ^^) I would never change that in itself! But it drains energy. Reading, talking, watching some movies... that all is great but no help. In the back of my brain everything is still working. But creating stuff, to go from ideas over experimenting, to have all the sensations from the visual idea to the touch of the material, that brings it all in order.

In the end creating is a catalyst while calming at the same time. Ideas need room and time to develop. Even in the own mind.

I love to see how things turn out in the end. How my creating evolve. How many facettes of myself are inside my work.

And I can let it go. As long as it will be with someone who really wants to have it!

So for the long time with just some spare blog entries: Here some view from my workingspace! (if you wonder, I won't show you the rest of the table or the surroundings! No way! I see all the people showing pictures from their space, calling it a mess... and I think by myself: You don't know what a real mess looks like! ^^)

Also: I will have a little giveaway!
