a client shared a photo of her outdoor rock garden with her new flowers
new one, as of yet untitled. found this wooden dowel on the highway awhile back. the center has a faded pink plastic thing for the 'stigma'. its another subtle one...earthy i like to think.
White Khaki Bromeliad
industrial bloom shop. i'm liking the faucet ones (bromeliads). i don't normally buy my materials but this week i broke down and did some ebay sniping and got a stock of faucet knobs. its shocking how expensive they can be... i was pleased to have gotten what i consider to be quite a good deal on 77 of them. i have work to do! hopefully my rebar stash will see me through a few batches of flowers. i hesitate to store much more of anything under our little rickety loft steps.
its been quite in my world. seasonal crap i'm sure and just a little worn down by my own thoughts. my tendency is to slide out of the present and worry about the future. or wonder. or knock repeatedly on a door that isn't seeming to open and rather than walk away and find another one i just stand there waiting. i am so grateful that i've been selling just enough flowers/vases/other art that somehow i make it each month. there is still the nagging thought of now what. what is next. what am i supposed to be doing. where am i headed. its a lot of mental nonsense probably. i know i'm very content when i sit down and just work on a flower. i sometimes have to push out thoughts that try to tell me i am not doing anything purposeful or productive. when i question what i am doing i always feel nuts. when i do what i want/do what i love to do (making a flower or whatever piece of art i'm working on at the moment) i am fine.
some of you may i have noticed i'm not on facebook much right now. the only thing i seem to keep up with is etsy. it's my livelihood. right now i am trying to keep my little head quiet. it helps to be online a little less, even if it worries me i might 'disappear' from the online world. it's only hard to follow my instinct when i think. thinking isn't a good thing. not for me.
