If I can offer any advice to fellow artist it is to keep an inspiration book. I went to the book store and got a nice blank book to fill with goodies. I have my own ideas that I have sketched, and I also cut out pictures from magazines that stir my creative juices. I found this picture on a Blog called The Daily Art Muse. It's a great site if you haven't been, go!
When ever I feel like my muse has left the building, I pull out my book. It's fun to see how I have progressed and re-occurring themes.
I have a local bead show coming up this weekend. It's with the St. Louis Lampworkers Society. It's a great little show and I get to see all my bead friends.
