Nest Feathers and Twine - Formally Artist's Block Studio

The things that make a house a home and the stuff that holds is all together.

Years ago I started this blog with a mindset and goals that I have found have changed direction over time. I am excited to say that this blog has a new name.....Nest Feathers and Twine. I hope you come by and visit often. Feel free to get comfortable and kick off your shoes and join me on this journey of metamorphosis.

Well, tomorrow is April 1st. I will be 40 in 22 days! Today while I was in my studio playing I was thinking about how I always tell my kids 'don't buy me anything, make me something, something from your heart.' for my birthday gift. I would take a hand made gift over a store bought gift anyday! That thought started a whole chain of thoughts, (yes, my blonde roots go very deep, but I do have thoughts that make sense now and then! ha!) What if I gave myself a handmade gift for this birthday. What if that gift was something to challenge me, and help me grow. Most of what I do artistically I plan. I think about, alot. When I play in my studio I have found ideas begin to breed like bunnies on a warm spring day! When I do not play, the ideas stop cold. What if I challenge myself to make 22 pieces of art in 22 days. No thinking or planning allowed. I just let it all flow and see what happens? Twenty two days in my studio, letting one idea lead to another, what would that do to the whole process of creating? What could I create? Could I really do this? There are a million techniques and ideas I want to's a thought...........
