Whilst I was putting together yesterday’s enjoyable jaunt through the year’s galavanting, I skimmed past photos of all the things I have made.
When I started the blog it was mainly to keep a diary of creative adventures. As you can see I have a grasshopper approach to creativity, jumping hither and thither, following thoughts, ideas and inspirations. It is easy for me to forget what I did and how I did it.
Here I can store projects and methods, should I ever want to re-create them at a later stage. It is also particularly useful when I re-visit abandoned projects. I can remind myself of the tools I used and the links I followed.
Going through my photos, gathering together all my 2017 makes in one place, has been fun. Many are still works in progress, but I have finished four crocheted blankets one for my grandson, The Wizard; two of them for my nieces The Mermaid and The Country Girl; and one, of my own bold zig-zag designs for my daughter’s best friend who wanted a blanket in Mexican colours.
Creative collaborations make my heart sing and working with others to create new colour palettes is such a joy. Well I say a joy – the Wizard caused me some struggles as you know – but we got there in the end.
I gain so much inspiration and knowledge from your blogs and Pinterest pages, it is thrilling to me if anything I share inspires you. Creative sharing has to be one of the BEST feelings ever! Please let me know if you think we could work together, that would be very exciting. Joining forces with Judy for our Silly Saturdays came about through a ‘Comment’ conversation and it has been such good fun inspiring each other in our shell art and poetry respectively.
I thoroughly enjoy joining in with Cathy’s ‘In a Vase on Monday’ when I can. Flowers from the garden not always ending up in a vase.
I’m looking forward to a creative 2018 and feel so very grateful for all the wonderful support and inspiration that comes from this fabulous community.
A huge and heartfelt thank you to all the Wild Daffodil visitors and followers which makes this blogging journey such a joyful delight. I really do appreciate each and every comment and connection.
May 2018 bring you happiness, joy and fun in blogland and beyond.
