There are so many ways to get back to your roots. To know why you have come into this universe. Searching, exploring, observing...
While trying to get back some thoughts that have been hibernating I came across this artist Hollis Chatelain. What amazing quilts!!! The detail below is just a sample of what this incredible artist is doing. Check out the website for all the wonderful pieces. There is a traveling exhibit that is planned for 2010. I'm hoping it comes to the Boston Area.

Blog surfing is my release lately. It takes me away from the holiday season and brings me to a safe, creative enjoyable time. During my surfing I have found Robyn's Blog from South Africa. I love the carvings she does.

This picture shows one of her works and her workspace. I love this picture because it incorporates nature and process. Check out this jewel of a blog. I am still exploring all it's treasures.

I find it funny hummmm not funny ha ha, that there are so many things to share in this world. A need to connect, a need to share, a need to feel human with the full range of emotions. Our emotions are our connection to every other human being in this world. It is our tracking system to bringing to our lives what we desire. There is so much to learn. Ways to bring peace to one another. To be kind. To give.

I just finished this book and rereading the next. It is a daily reminder we have work to do.

Check out Susan's blog to see this talented bookartist's new project. Susan makes a word a day journal out of recycled materials. This clever project (after also commiting to my "Life in the color" project and only making it 'till April) seems do-able. Check out her video and other beautiful works.

It is amazing how we are all a link away.

Through web surfing I was brought to Karin Bartimole's blog which is filled with her daily journal pages and wonderful thoughts. I feel like she is a soul sister and is on a similar path as myself. Go to her site to check these wonderful little morsals.

We are all connected in some way. We are humans that are connected by thoughts, actions, concerns.... We have passion, we have hurts, we have experiences that bring us all together.

The stirrings of the true spirit of Sprinkles is seeping back into my conscious. Where it will take me I don't know. But what I do know it is important.
Thank you for sharing. Leave a comment in this post and recieve a FREE issue of a past issue of Sprinkles the zine.

I found this link while blog surfing and it is so in tune with my daily dilema. Everything I think about and know is happening but can't verbalize the importance of is all right here in this mini movie by Annie Leonard!
Take the time to watch her movie and THINK ABOUT IT!

Everything we do and think effects us all....

long long time ago...

It's been a long time and I am finally ready to post again. In the time away there is always thinking, wondering, waiting...
what is this thing called life? where do we go? where are we coming from?
so many people come and go through life's journey and we are still the same person who stands with ourselves. Rethinking art and what is important I have come to some realizations that I am ready to share.
the love of sharing creativity is so very important. I collect and collect from the discards in the hopes to pass these along to someone who will cherish and use these wonderful pieces.
Today I have come across Seth Apter who has a rich blog full of giving. Check out his wonderful textured mixed media work.
Also visiting Alma Stoller's blog you can view her wonderful new zine called soul craft.
These two people have sparked that flame once again to reach out and start doing instead of just thinking. I am seriously thinking of doing a new issue of Sprinkles the zine with a new twist. Then in the spirit of giving I want to have a give away. Paper, paper, paper everywhere..... The first ten people to leave a comment in this post will receive an envelope of paper/ephemera/and a goodie or two.
