Endless Creativity

Wow... It's been so long since I updated my blog!
The working life really puts a hold on everything. I want to do so many things, but can only fit one project at a time to do after work --- same with making time for blogging! On top of that, taking some time for social life and outside activities as well.

It's very challenging to juggle what you want to finish first when you have so many in mind! Sometimes it's just nice to have dinner then relax after a long day, but I just can't sit or lay still, thinking... "it would be so cool to make 'this' or 'that'!" Creatively speaking, ideas are ENDLESS! When you are inspired, chances are you will find a way to make use of that inspiration. You will find yourself creating and experimenting until you find satisfaction. It's almost like cooking on paper! Then, it's just a matter of doing it and finishing it. What's worse is that I would schedule to work on a project in the weekend, but when that day comes I end up doing something else. Sure.. Call it procrastination... but it really takes time! I'm sure some of you have gone through that as well. It's not like I have a due date ;).

I have been working on 2 personal projects. The first one, I started working on creating my own Ornamental Alphabets in the form of a swan. It initially started as an experiment with one alphabet, then it turned into something more. With that said, I decided to carry the concept through the whole family of alphabets. Talk about A LOT of work! I'm only in "F" for goodness sakes! There are 26 letters in the Alphabet, and I'm only in 6. Well... that's going to take a while to finish. And when I finish, I plan to transfer them into colored digital illustrations and create a poster. I think it would be cool screen printed or letterpressed too. I can picture it already...

Here's a SNEAK PEEK of my original design for my attentive subscribers... :)

The other project that I'm working on is my Valentine series. I'm calling it, "Sweet Little Things."
I know I am a little late on this because Valentine is over. I planned to finish this by V-day, but just didn't make it... BUT at least it'll be finished!

Another SNEAK PEEK for ya'll... :)
Series is still in progress...

Let me know what you think! I would love to hear your thoughts and suggestions on these ("comments" link below).
Sweet Little Things will be out very very soon! I will keep you informed. So... HANG TIGHT!

Thank you for the encouragement! You should make time to blog. Just fill in a slot in the day for a half to a few hours... that's what I did. Time management is all it takes. And YES -- it's definitely long overdue!
